Last spring, a lot of people suffered from SARS, the dreadful epidemic disease. We must be careful about the disease in case of its outbreak this winter.

If you have the following conditions, you suspect SARS.


1) You came back from a SARS prevailing area within 10 days, or you had a close contact with a SARS patient within 10 days.


2) You have fever higher than 38, cough or respiratory trouble.

Then, you must phone a nearby Public Health Center or a nearby clinic.  They will tell you what to do.

If you have language difficulties, please ask for assistance at Foreign Residents' Assistance Service ((047-436-2953 on Monday and Friday 10:00~16:00) or the International Relations Section (047-436-2083) at the City Hall.
