Novel coronavirus infection prevention guidelines
On January 27, 2020, the Korean Ministry of Health and Welfare raised the infectious disease alert level one notch from “yellow” to “orange” due to the increasing spread of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in the country. As a preemptive measure, Yonsei University has officially canceled major events taking place in February as follows.
- Inaugural Ceremony for the 19th President of Yonsei University
- February 2020 Commencement
- 2020 Matriculation
- Student/First year Orientation events (held by Yonsei Student Council, colleges, departments)

We advise members of the Yonsei University community to follow precautions announced by the Korea Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (KCDC) to prevent novel coronavirus infection.
