Notice Concerning the Response to the Declaration of a State of Emergency

In response to the continuous spread of COVID-19 infection in the Tokyo Metropolitan Area, the Government of Japan decided to declare a state of emergency again on July 12th. The central government and local governments are requesting that universities make more use of online classes instead of face-to-face classes, to avoid further spread of the COVID-19 infection.

It is clear that the number of infections has been increasing in Tokyo, including within families and among those taking part in extra-curricular activities. Therefore, Meiji University has decided to upgrade its “Activity Restriction Guidelines” to LEVEL 2, instead of the current Level 1. We have done this to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff members, as well as to fulfill our social responsibilities.

This Guideline level is effective from July 12 until further notice.

However, in order to avoid confusion caused by the sudden change in the guideline level, some classes and exams will be allowed to go ahead under Level 1 of the Activity Restriction Guidelines. In such cases face-to-face classes and final exams will be held as originally planned. We will also give consideration to those students who wish to refrain from attending classes and exams on campus.

More details about classes and final exams will be notified on the “Oh-o! Meiji” system.
So, all students are kindly requested to check the information on the “ClassWeb” and follow the instructions from the faculty member in charge of each class.

Also, please note that unnecessary outings and travel during the state of emergency must be avoided and everyone should behave properly in order to avoid spreading or contracting the COVID-19 infection.

Details of the Level 2 restrictions will be announced later, as soon as more information becomes available.

We ask for your continued understanding and cooperation so that students, faculty members and staff of Meiji University can work together to overcome the COVID-19 infection.
