Regarding the yellow alert issued from Osaka Prefecture in response to the spread of COVID-19


On Tuesday, July 28, 2020, Osaka Prefecture held its 22nd COVID-19 Response Committee Meeting, making the following requests to universities based on the yellow alert that Osaka Prefecture issued in response to the spread of COVID-19.

We ask you all to continue your efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19 with these requests in mind.

1. Refrain from drinking/eating in groups of five or more people.

2. Individuals who are experiencing any symptoms should refrain from coming to school and receive a medical examination. 

3. In order to prevent the spread of infection,

• Only make use of establishments that display the "COVID-19 safety stickers,” issued by the prefectural government to prove that they meet the Disease Control Measures Guidelines for Businesses.

• Upon entering the establishment, register your email address with the Osaka COVID-19 Tracing System. (You will be informed by email if someone else who has been in the same spot on the same day tests positive for the virus.)

Install the COVID-19 Contact-Confirming Application (COCOA). (You'll be notified if you have had close contact with those infected.)
