Coronavirus / COVID-19 in Japan

While there is no reason to panic, there is cause to be concerned about the spread of the Covid-19 / Coronavirus in Japan.

The general recommendations are that everyone takes the following precautions:

  • Avoid close contact with sick people.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
    • Wash with soap and water to destroy the virus. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds.
    • While an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60%–95% alcohol can be used, it’s best to reserve those resources for work locations where soap and water are not readily available.
    • If your hands are visibly dirty, soap and water should be used rather than hand sanitizer.
  • As always, it is especially important to clean hands after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. Regular household cleaners will destroy the virus.
  • Wear a mask in public.
  • Most importantly, stay home when you are sick in order to avoid exposing others.
