Notification of Novel Coronavirus Tests

■Summary

  • The university’s health service centers offer tests of the novel coronavirus for a fee to those who need the test for various reasons, such as being in contact with infected people, need for negative confirmation to participate in conferences or meeting or for personal reasons.
  • Cases which do not have fever or show symptoms suggesting novel coronavirus as well as those not applicable for the "new coronavirus test necessary for research and education conducted by the university" are eligible for the tests.
  • If you have symptoms such as fever or cough, please visit a medical institution for novel coronavirus tests for treatment. If you wish to visit one of the university health service centers, please refer to the information for each branch (Hongo/Komaba/Kashiwa).
  • Since the national health insurance does not cover the university’s health service centers, it is not possible to provide the test using the public expenses for people suspected of being infected with novel coronavirus or those in close contact.
  • If you wish to apply for the tests as a department due to contacts with infected persons, etc., and wish to pay by internal departmental transfer, please contact the health service center by phone or e-mail in advance. We will guide you through the inspection procedure separately. Payment by departmental transfer is only available with advanced notification.
