Regarding Osaka University’s Activity Levels from June 1, 2021
In response to the extension of the current state of emergency declaration until June 20, Osaka Prefecture made a request to all universities in the prefecture to continue holding classes primarily online to limit person-to-person contact and to refrain from holding extracurricular activities to prevent clusters of COVID-19 infections.
Osaka University has altered its activity response levels after careful consideration of requests from Osaka Prefecture as well as the status of the COVID-19 pandemic.

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