Raising the restriction level to 2 (Severe restrictions)


Raising the restriction level to 2 (Severe restrictions)
Prof. Hirdy Miyamoto

Due to the increased daily number of new infections of the COVID-19 disease, the University of Tokyo should impose a more strict restriction; level 2 of the University of Tokyo Activity Restrictions Index for Preventing the Spread of Novel Coronavirus Disease. Note that it indicates, “For research activities, only the minimum number of laboratory staff necessary are permitted to enter the laboratories in order to continue experiments and research in progress. The staff members entering the laboratories should reduce the amount of time they stay on-site, and other staff members should work from home. Conducting experiments or other types of work alone in a laboratory is extremely dangerous and is thus strictly prohibited.” Thus, please stay at your home for both attending the online course and performing daily research.
