Heat stroke

We would like to remind you of notice about heatstroke by Health center of Nara University of Education explained at the orientation session because it is getting hotter recently as summer is coming soon.

※Heatstroke
Heatstroke is caused not only when you are outside or play sports. It is caused even when you are inside in high temperature and high humidity. Please be careful.

3. Take your temperature and check your health condition. Take a rest when you feel sick.
4. Put on cloths which breathes well, hat and parasol when you go out.
5.You need to ventilate by opening windows or using ventilator even when you are using air conditioner. In that case, please control the temperature by turning down the air conditioning etc because the temperature in the room tends to be high due to the ventilation.

Heat stroke and COVID-19

Especially in this summer, we need to be careful about heat stroke while at the same time we have to take measures to prevent coronavirus infection. Thus, please be careful for heat stroke even more than usual.

◇It is important to use air conditioner in order to prevent heat stroke. However, generally air conditioner only circulate the air and doesn't ventilate. Therefore, you need to ventilate by opening windows or using ventilator even when you are using air conditioner. In that case, please control the temperature by turning down the air conditioning etc because the temperature in the room tends to be high due to the ventilation.

◇Wearing mask is important in order to prevent droplet infection. However, wearing mask in the hot and humid situation increases the risk of heat stroke. Therefore, please take off your mask outside in the situation where you can keep adequate distance (at least two meters) away from others. If you wear mask, please avoid doing hard work or exercise that bear big burden for you, and also drink water frequently even if you are not thirsty. It is also necessary to take off your mask temporarily in the place where you can keep adequate distance away from other people, and take a rest.
