On September 8, the national Novel Coronavirus Response Headquarters decided on the "Policy Approach Toward With-Coronavirus,"which indicates that the government will not restrict activities but will focus on protecting the elderly and others at risk of serious illness, in order to achieve a balance between preventing infection and social and economic activities. Measures to be taken based on the basic response policy have been asked each universities to continue to work on both ensuring opportunities for students to study and thorough implementation of countermeasures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection.

In consideration of these circumstances, as we have already announced, the contents of each activity have been changed in term of achieving a balance between preventing infection and social and economic activities, and the University's activity standard level will be set at Level 1 from October 1.Although there is not any restriction on each activities at Level 1, all activities at Level 1 assume basic infection control measures and new lifestyle practices.

Before the start of the 2nd semester, many students will be on the move, and there will be more opportunities to interact with people and friends who have not seen for a while, which may increase the risk of infection through eating, drinking, playing, etc. In addition,many events will be held in this season, which may also increase the risk of infection through more times for moving to the place many people will gather.

In order to prevent yourself, your family and friends from being infected, not only in university activities but also in your private life, you are required to thorough implemenatation of countermeasures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection as below.

Lowering of the Toyohashi University of Technology Activity Standard Level for preventing the spread of COVID-19 to "Level 1" (Effective from October 1st)

September 21, 2022
President Kazuhiko Terashima

  The University's activity standard for COVID-19 has been set at Level 2 since January 17. Infection control measures and restrictions on various activities on campus have been required.

  In this fiscal year, the Omicron strain, which has increased infectivity through mutation, has caused a record number of cases of new coronavirus infection nationwide. But in term of the characteristics of the Omicron strain and previous findings, the national response has changed this fiscal year, with the national Novel Coronavirus Response Headquarters not declaring a state of emergency or designating an area where priority measures such as prevention of spread should be implemented.

  Under these circumstances, on September 8, the national Novel Coronavirus Response Headquarters decided on the "Policy Approach Toward With-Coronavirus," which indicates that the government will not restrict activities but will focus on protecting the elderly and others at risk of serious illness, in order to achieve a balance between preventing infection and social and economic activities. The basic policy has also been changed, and universities have been requested to continue to work on both ensuring opportunities for students to study and thorough Implementation of Countermeasures to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19 infection.

  In consideration of these circumstances, the University's activity standard level will be set at Level 1 from October 1. Please act to the standard level as soon as the actions can be taken. Please refer to the Appendix for the activity standards. In addition, the contents of each activity have been changed to conform to the current situation. Please check them.

  All activities at Level 1 also assume basic infection control measures and new lifestyle practices. You are required to act, with the greatest care and attention, to prevent infection and spread of COVID-19 infection.

  Please refer to the attached document for basic infection control measures and new lifestyle practices the activity standards.
