Tulip Self Quarantine Service

Great news, the Japanese government has allowed more foreign students to enter Japan since the beginning of November.
However, these students need to quarantine for 10 days in Japan before they are really allowed to go out in Japan. Not only for international new students, but any female foreigner who is searching for an accommodation which is also allowed to quarantine the first 10 days, we provide the self quarantine service in our share houses!

Protocol of Corona Virus in the sharehouses

Dear Residents of Tulip Real Estate,

We post this information, since this message is related to anyone who can become a victim of Corona Virus.
You all live in a house with more residents in one house, therefore the risk is higher someone will get the virus and spread it in the house. We would like to share some information about it.

HYGIENE
Hygiene is very important right now and that doesn’t only mean outside, but also inside the house. Everybody touches the pans, the doorknobs of the doors, the flush buttons of the toilets and so on. It is crucial that everyone in the house is taking care of each other’s hygiene. To avoid getting sick and also to spread the disease, please:

  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 30 seconds
  • always wash your hands when you get home
  • clean/detox your room as much as possible
  • clean the common spaces (kitchen, toilet etc.) with detergent and water after using them.
  • use hand sanitizer gel if soap and water are not available
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
  • avoid close contact with people
  • only travel on public transport if you need to
  • work/study from home, if you can
  • avoid social activities, such as going to pubs, restaurants, theatres and cinemas
  • avoid events with large groups of people

SYMPTOMS OF CORONA VIRUS
Every person feels the illness a bit different. Some people get a sore throat and a fever, some feel a bit tired. The most warning symptom is when you have a higher temperature than 37.5 degrees here in Japan. If you are not feeling well, you need to consider your housemates’ health and avoid contact with them. Please visit a hospital and contact Tulip Real Estate first. You should wear a surgical mask to minimize risk to others and move quickly through any common areas. Avoid coming to the common spaces as much as possible, like the living room. Stay in the room as much as possible for at least 14 days. If it is confirmed a person in the sharehouse has corona virus, let us know if you are not feeling well, and we can come with urgent measures if needed.

※ We do not provide evacuation sites, even if the infection of residents is known.

Please note that financial compensation is not supported.

If possible, you should not even go outside to buy food or other products. Talk (by phone or mail) to your housemates to ask for their help to access necessary things you need or order things online.
People living in the same house, will infect each other easily. Therefore, it might be we also need to ask others to be checked and isolate themselves for 14 days in the room.

CONTRACT RENEWAL
We informed you all, that there is a change in our contract renewal procedure.
Normally, residents need to pass by our office to renew. From now until the end of April, we will put your contract in the mailbox of your house. We would like to ask you if you could sign and submitted back in the mailbox. Next time, we will pick it up. We will notify you again if there are any changes.

OTHER TEMPORARY CHANGES OF REGULATION
We want to inform you, it is not allowed to invite friends or other visitors in the sharehouses anymore. This rule might be until the end of April, but we will inform you for any changes.

Please keep the windows, especially in the common spaces, a bit open once in a while to have fresh air in the house.

OUR OPENING HOURS OF THE OFFICE
For now, we still work in the office every day from 10:00 ~ 18:00 and we still visit the sharehouses. If we decide to close the office, we will inform you accordingly. We would still be reachable by emails, since we would work from home. For contract renewal, moving in, moving out and viewing appointments, we would need to postpone.
Probably, we wouldn’t be able to clean anymore in the houses. This information will be informed as well.
