To all students, faculty and staff of the University of Tokyo:
In response to the Japanese government’s move on April 6 to declare a state of emergency and the emergency measures taken by Tokyo Metropolitan Government, the University of Tokyo will impose maximum restrictions on campus activities to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Specifically, based on “The University of Tokyo Activity Restrictions Index for Preventing the Spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019,” released on April 3, the university is raising its level to 3 as of April 8 (“maximum restrictions”).
Level 3 indicates:
Please strictly follow these measures, as they are indispensable for protecting the health and safety of the members of the University of Tokyo community and the larger society. Additionally, please note that the government’s declaration of emergency as well as Tokyo’s emergency measures urges you not only to restrict your actions on campus but also act responsibly in your everyday life.
