Regarding the "Meiji University Activity Restriction Guidelines" after April 1, 2023

Meiji University has decided to lower the current "Level 1" of the "Meiji University Activity Restriction Guidelines" to "Level 0" in conjunction with the start of the spring semester on April 1, 2023. With the lowering of the activity restriction level, various infection prevention measures taken by the university will be gradually relaxed during the “transition period” from April 1 to May 7, 2023.

As you are already aware, the government has announced its intention to transition the handling of COVID-19 under the Infectious Diseases Control Law from the current "Class 2 equivalent" to "Class 5", the same level as seasonal influenza, starting from May 8, 2023.

Regarding mask wearing, the government has also announced that it will respect individual choices and leave the decision to individuals. This is simply a move towards establishing a way of living with COVID. This new approach called, "With COVID-19/After COVID-19," is based on the knowledge of various factors gained from the experience of the past three years of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We will inform you separately about the new measures to be taken by the university, so please refer to them.

Due to the nature of viruses that mutate repeatedly, this decision does not mean we can relax completely but we feel that we can see the light at the end of the long tunnel towards leading a more normal life. Let's work together to overcome the pandemic and regain the vibrant campus life that we used to enjoy. Let's take another step forward!

Kosaku Dairokuno,
President, Meiji University
