The policy we take to prevent coronavirus

The present Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak around the world is a major concern to everyone.
However, the best way to prevent contracting this disease is through personal care
― hand washing, gargle, mask wearing, cough etiquette.

Calls are currently are being made by Fukuoka City-s authorities for everyone to wear sanitary
masks and keep up with cough etiquette norms.

Concerning cough etiquette procedures, please consult the following info site:

When coughing or sneezing, do not hold your mouth with your hands
and please follow the method shown in the image below.

In addition, frequent drinking can help prevent infection with the virus.

It is well established  that the occurs primarily via respiratory droplets from coughs and sneezes within a range of about 6 feet (1.8 m) from the throat thus initiating the  infection.

Hydrating once every 20 minutes and swallowing  respiratory droplets potentially affected by the virus on the throat helps prevent infection. Drinking water is available in the lounge on the 9th floor, but can also be purchased from vending machines on the same floor.

Prevention Initiatives from WeBase HAKATA

● Cleanliness

As for an effective countermeasure against infection, we are thoroughly cleaning every area of the building
and using disinfecting alcohol on rigorously every spot .

We regularly open doors and ventilate every floor for 5 hours during cleaning procedures’ time,
and often longer if possible.

Disinfecting agents for hands and fingers are available at the reception desk and in the lounge located on the 9th floor.

In addition, in the shared dormitory on the third floor, after ventilation, humidification is performed
with the goal of providing proper humidity.
