Notice Concerning Extracurricular Activities During Quarter Break

In addition to regular practices and away games, there are most likely student organizations that have already made plans to hold a dinner or other gathering involving food with their club/circle members during Quarter Break. As the temperature drops and we head into winter, we must be even more careful about our actions. There are many examples of coronavirus cluster infections among university students resulting from drinking parties and karaoke. As the number of infections continues to rise nationwide, we ask that all students acknowledge the potential that your choices have to put you at risk for infection. Please make safe choices and refrain from organizing or participating in a party or other social event that could result in a COVID-19 cluster.

We have fortunately not had any infection clusters result from club/circle activities thanks to the diligence with which our student organizations have cooperated with the infection prevention measures required during club/circle activities. Please take a moment to read through the following prevention guidelines and continue to be vigilant about enforcing the necessary measures to ensure that you are able to conduct your activities in as safe a manner as possible.

1)Be careful to avoid the Three Cs at all times.
2)Wear a mask when out in public and wash and sanitize your hands often.
3)Check your temperature daily and monitor your physical condition. Do not leave the house if you are not feeling well.
4)Refrain from going to karaoke and holding long dinners (parties, etc.) with more than 5 people at a time.
