Jikei Group of Colleges Cancels Joint Entrance Ceremonies in Response to Novel Coronavirus

The Jikei Group of Colleges has announced that it will cancel joint entrance ceremonies in each region scheduled for April. The ceremonies will instead be scaled down to the school and departmental level and shortened in length.


We would like to express our deepest apologies to all of you looking forward to the joint entrance ceremony, including our new students, their parents and guardians, as well as our honored guests, and ask for your understanding.


Entrance ceremonies held at the school and departmental level will be conducted as follows:


1. The ceremonies will be conducted with the greatest care. Hand sanitiser dispensers will be put in place at the halls, all the attendees will wear a mask, and the space will be well ventilated.

2. The ceremonies will be held with only the new students and faculty members. Parents and guardians as well as guests are asked to refrain from attending the ceremonies.

3. Anyone with symptoms such as a high fever, coughing, or sneezing is asked to refrain from attending the ceremonies.

4. Information regarding the novel coronavirus may change in the future as a result of the policies of the Japanese government or daily updates. The measures taken by the Jikei Group may also change accordingly.
