Novel Coronavirus Infection Notes

To all students and Faculty members;

On January 28, Japanese Government decided a coronavirus infection as a designated infectious disease. Then on January 30, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced the "Public Health Emergency of International Concern". Regarding to this issue, we ask students and faculty members of Tottori University to take the following countermeasures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus infection.

                                              Regarding to travel to China

1. Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan has raised the warning level for travel to China to "Level 2 (Please do not make unnecessary and non-urgent travel)”, therefore please stop traveling to China for the time being unless it is urgent or necessary.

                                                 Regarding to those returning from China

1. If you return from China (including the transfer) and have symptoms such as a cough, fever (approximately 37.5 ° C or higher), diarrhea, or muscle pain, please avoid contacting with other people and make sure to wear a mask. Then, please contact the nearest health center and report your history of staying in China and consult a medical institution according to their instructions.

2. Even if you do not have any symptoms, please stay at home at least 14 days after returning from China and observe your health condition. Please make sure to measure your body temperature daily (at least twice a day, in the morning and in the evening), wash your hands, and wear a mask. If you have a cough or fever, please take the same measures as in 1 above.

                                                      Regarding to people who have never traveled to China

1. Infections have been confirmed in people who have never traveled to China. Even those who have not traveled to China should also take the countermeasures to prevent the infection. If you do not feel well, please refrain from attending school or going to work and consult a medical institution.

                                                                  Lastly, please take care of the personal information and stay calm when you take these countermeasures. The information has been kept updating, so please pay attention to the latest information, including the website below.

70th Anniversary Sake “Toridai Kokiarata” Is Now Ready


 Founded in 1949, Tottori University celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2019. We have planned several projects under the concept of “To Embrace/Connect/Create the Time” as the commemorative initiatives of the 70th anniversary, one of which was to brew the anniversary sake. In this project, we grew “Goriki”, the breed of brewers’ rice we have preserved, with no pesticide/chemical fertilizer, and carefully brewed junmai-shu with the harvest. Reflecting the celebration of the 70th anniversary as well as the wish for the new leaps forward, the finished anniversary sake was named “Toridai Kokiarata”.

 Students who took part in the project and other parties involved gathered at the tasting event of this new sake on November 6th, and enjoyed the dry, clean, and palatable “Kokiarata”. It was scheduled for launch on November 7th, and student members expressed their hope to “have many people enjoy Kokiarata we have created.”
