To students, faculty, staff, and all whom it may concern:
Handling of university events related to measures being taken to mitigate new coronavirus infections
In order to reduce the risk of infection spreading across universities as a whole, on March 5 we noticed stating that university events, which are scheduled to be held by the end of March this year, will be canceled or postponed in principle.
However, as the spread of the new coronavirus infection is still continuing, we decided to extend this measure to [April 21]. Such measures may be extended again depending on future circumstances.
We would like to ask for your continued understanding and cooperation in order to place the highest priority on health maintenance, although we will continue to cause inconveniences to students, faculty members, and other relevant parties.
1． The following activities and events shall be canceled or postponed in principle.
(1) Educational activities including intensive classes and seminar camps (Both in Japan and abroad.)
(2) Extracurricular activities such as training camps, games, and live performances organized by extracurricular activity groups, such as Official Clubs.
(3) Lectures, workshops, events, social gatherings, etc. using campus facilities
2． Business trips shall be canceled or postponed in principle. Research trips, etc. should be canceled or postponed if at all possible. However, if it is difficult to postpone or discontinue research trips, etc., the decision should be made at the discretion of the individual, while ensuring sufficient safety.
3． If circumstances arise in which the above measures are to be cancelled before the date they apply we will inform everyone concerned in a timely manner.
