Post-COVID-19 “new normal”: cafeterias on campus reopen with preventive measures

Most cafeterias and restaurants on OU campuses reopened this week. In order to reduce crowds during the lunch hour, Osaka University altered its class timetable beginning from June 1, 2020, extending the lunch hour from 60 to 90 minutes.

Cafeterias and restaurants have taken precautionary measures, such as placing hand sanitizers at entrances, putting partitions between seats, and shortening business hours.

Since students are currently taking online classes and are not allowed to participate in extracurricular activities, only a handful of people are seen on campus. However, OU is making every effort to prepare for the “new normal” after COVID-19.
