Regarding Osaka University’s Activity Levels from August 20, 2021


In response to the government’s decision to extend the state of emergency until September 12, Osaka Prefecture made requests to universities in the prefecture on August 18 to refrain from extracurricular activities with a high risk of infection, especially training camps and practice matches.

In addition, the Kansai Economic Federation has requested that corporations take even greater measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, such as a 70% decrease of employees in the office by encouraging remote work.

After careful consideration of requests from Osaka Prefecture as well as the status of the COVID-19 pandemic, Osaka University has decided to raise a portion of its activity response levels as outlined in the file posted below.

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.
