Regarding Osaka University’s Activity Levels and the Lifting of Osaka Prefecture's State of Emergency Declaration


In response to the lifting of the State of Emergency Declaration in Osaka Prefecture, regarding its response levels from March 1, 2021, Osaka University will ease its response to government-issued travel restrictions (specifically, from “comply” to “consider”) in research, meetings, events, and extracurricular activities. However, for all other response levels, the university will maintain its response levels in order to restrict non-essential outings and reduce contact with others, while maintaining its research and education activities.

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.
