Regarding Osaka University’s Activity Levels from June 21, 2021


The state of emergency for Osaka Prefecture was lifted on June 20, but quasi-emergency measures for Osaka Prefecture were enacted from June 21. As such, requests from the prefecture for universities to hold classes online have been lifted; however, requests were made for universities to refrain from holding activities that have a high risk of spreading COVID-19.

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 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.
