Thank you very much for your support to the work of university regarding epidemic prevention and control over the past weeks. You have made special contributions to help us facilitate this tough task which has achieved success in current phase! Now, as you can see, the prevention and control of the Novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic is at a critical moment, and new arrangements and deployments have been announced by the Chinese government according to how the epidemic evolves. Correspondingly, the university has organized several meetings to implement the latest work requirements from government and taken measures to effectively protect the health and safety of teachers and students, in particular, the health and safety of all international students which is the top concern of our university. It is our common expectation to overcome the epidemic and return to normal and happy campus life as soon as possible. The university hereby will issue the following reminders:
Please pay close attention to and strictly abide by the relevant notice of the Chinese government. The university has decided to postpone the beginning of new semester as required by the Chinese Ministry of Education, and will announce the exact starting date uniformly to you, please wait patiently. On the other hand, online teaching will begin on February 17thand you should prepare to have classes according to the arrangements of the college you are attending, and handle the study related matters.
Please fulfill your reporting carefully. In order to ensure the health and safety of all students, the university will collect the data about your itinerary during vacation and your physical condition in real time. Please fill in the relevant forms carefully and timely because all of them will be among the necessary materials for registration in the new semester. Anything missed from them will affect your normal registration.
If you or your family whom you live with experience symptoms such as fever, dry cough, fatigue, and breathing disorder, be sure to report to your contact teacher or counselor in time.
Please avoid going out as much as you can. At present, in principle, students who are now in Kaifeng should not leave this city. If there are indeed special circumstances that you have to leave, you shall go through the procedure of taking leaves during the epidemic prevention and control; for students who are currently away (including in other cities of China and abroad) and plan to return to China, you shall go through the procedure of reporting during the epidemic prevention and control and signing the safety notification during travel, and set off after you are approved; students back to Kaifeng must have quarantine observation at home (or in the quarantine area of the international student dormitory) (for those back from epidemic-stricken area, the quarantine lasts for 14 days, and for those back from non-epidemic areas, the quarantine lasts for 7 days). You are only allowed to go back to the university after the quarantine is over and nothing abnormal is reported.
Please do not invite or receive visitors recently. The university will strengthen the campus security management by being extra strict with the access control of the gate as well as the external personnel and vehicles.
Dear students, we are now at the critical moment of control and prevention of the epidemic. Like old Chinese saying goes, the brave wins on the narrow road, the rainbow follows the storm. Let us join hands and persist in this task, making effort from every individual and being abide by the requirements, and we will see the blooming spring in Kaifeng soon!
Thank you all again for your understanding and support to the university!
