■ Requests and Requirements to Students

You are required to wear a mask to take lessons.

Please refrain from taking your lesson if you or anyone you are in close contact with is not feeling well.

③ Please sanitize or wash your hands thoroughly before and after lessons.

Please refrain from coming to Japan Switch outside of your lesson periods (ex. Studying in the lobby) and refrain from gathering in stairwells or other areas of the building that can lead to crowding.

⑤ All interactions that Japan Switch requires you to do in person can be done online until June 30th to prevent crowding in the reception area.

⑥ If you are unable to stop coughing or have other symptoms, the staff may ask you to leave the lesson.
