Many nations throughout the world, including South Korea, are trying to deal with the COVID-19. According to an online search, the COVID-19 is a viral infection that affects the respiratory system. The outbreak originated in Wuhan, China near the end of December 2019. The COVID-19 is a pathogen usually found in bats. The area around Wuhan, China, where the outbreak began, has been quarantined since January. 23, 2020. The infection has spread to many countries around the world, and on January 30, the World Health Organization has declared it an "International Public Health Emergency (PHEIC)". According to the Korea Center for Disease Control and Prevention, as of March 7, more than 101,745 people (3,480deaths) have been infected worldwide. In Korea, as of March 7, there have been a total of 7,041 people who were infected. To prevent the spread of the disease, Sookmyung Women's University has ordered precautionary measures for the start of the 2020 semester. The most important change at school is the postponing of the school semester by one week, from March 2 to March 9. This change ensures a 15-week semester within a 16-week academic semester calendar. The mid-term exam period will also be delayed a week or two, and the final exam period will be shorten from two weeks to one week. There are also many changes to school events. The 2019 formal graduation ceremony, the 2020 admission ceremony and orientation for first year students, and the 2020 "Fireworks Program" for first year students have all been cancelled. Instead of an orientation ceremony, first year students will be provided with information through video clips and the school homepage. Furthermore, starting January 13, 2020, all university students who have visited China, including Hong Kong and Macau, must complete travel documents and report their travels via e-mail or a direct telephone call to the school administration. With the COVID-19 spreading daily, students at Sookmyung Women’s University should take extra care as they go about their daily lives.
