Regarding Osaka University’s Response to Extension of the State of Emergency Declaration


On February 2, 2021, the government announced an extension of the current state of emergency declaration for 10 prefectures, including Osaka Prefecture, to March 7, 2021.

In response to this extension, in order to maintain its activity levels for research and education while limiting any unnecessary or non-urgent outings and direct interaction with other people, Osaka University has decided to maintain its current response levels. The university asks for your cooperation and understanding as it continues its efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

In carrying out its activities, the university will comply with the "Osaka University Guidelines for Social Distancing in the COVID-19 Era" while providing proper arrangements for individuals with specific needs*.

*Pregnant women, those who are at high risk of becoming seriously ill, such as the elderly, those with an underlying condition (diabetes, heart failure, respiratory disease (COPD etc.)), those receiving dialysis, immunosuppressants, or anticancer drugs, or those who feel an overwhelming anxiety about COVID-19.

The university will continue to monitor the situation and modify its response levels accordingly.
