Regarding Osaka University’s Activity Levels from April 15, 2021


On April 14, Osaka Prefecture has once again raised the alert level of the "Osaka Model," Osaka Prefecture's exit model for COVID-19, to Red Stage 2 in response to the sudden increase in the number of COVID-19 cases and the strain on the medical care provision system in the prefecture. In addition, Osaka Prefecture requested that all universities in the prefecture move most of their classes online and refrain from holding extracurricular activities.

In light of the critical situation that has led to these requests by the prefectural government, Osaka University has decided to raise its basic activity level to level 2 (extracurricular activity will be raised to level 5) in order to improve the COVID-19 situation in Osaka Prefecture as best it can.

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.
