Regarding Measures against COVID-19

In regards of measures to prevent COVID-19 at JAIST, we announced a message from the president on April 27, and asked for your continued cooperation.
After that, the government extended the "State of Emergency" in Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Hyogo prefectures until May 31, 2021 in consideration of the spread of the infection, and Aichi and Fukuoka prefectures were also added to the state of emergency list.
Ishikawa prefecture issued its own "State of Emergency" on May 9, as the spread of infection became more serious and the hospital bed usage rate approached 90%.
In addition, the areas to which "Priority measures such as for prevention of the spread of disease" are applied have expanded to Saitama, Chiba, Kanagawa, Okinawa, Hokkaido, Gifu and Mie prefectures.
Therefore, please comply with the measures stated in the president's message, and we would like to ask each of you to stay alert and continue to take measures against COVID-19.
In particular, there are many clusters occurring all over the country caused by dining in group and karaoke, therefore please refrain from such acts both on and off campus, and do not make unnecessary and non-urgent business trip etc. (the same applies to visitors) to where "State of Emergency" and "Priority measures such as for prevention of the spread of disease" have been issued.
Due to the extension of the State of Emergency, the Tokyo Satellite will continue to be closed, and we would like to ask for your kind understanding.
