TUAT Measures in Response to Lifting of Tokyo’s COVID-19 State of Emergency

 The Japanese government has decided to lift the "State of Emergency in Response to the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)" currently in place for Tokyo metropolitan area (the state of emergency is set to expire on Sunday, March 21). However, the infection spread is still ongoing and it will take several months before vaccines become available for residents of Japan. As we have informed you through a notice on March 5; from April, we plan to hold face-to-face lectures whenever possible at TUAT. To create an environment where lectures and research - the first priority of universities - can be conducted, we ask all students to continue to cooperate in preventing the virus spread by raising awareness on “protecting yourself from infection and preventing infection transmission to others”.

  • At each campus, infection prevention measures are taken and we are working to create a safe environment for study and research, where the students and researchers can pursue their study and research without much concern about the infection transmission, etc. Please cooperate in wearing masks, cleaning your hands and disinfecting your desks with alcohol, etc.
  • As we will be frequently posting up-to-date information on how the lectures or events, etc. will be held at TUAT, please check the Google Classroom, Web Bulletin Board for students and TUAT website, etc.
  • Laboratory activities can be carried out after thorough infection prevention measures are taken. However, please ensure to follow the policies of the Faculty/Graduate School you belong to.
  • Take actions in your daily life to prevent the virus spread such as by taking care of your physical condition, hand washing and wearing masks. If you feel unwell, please consult a doctor, etc., and do not attend university nor go outside the house/residence.
  • Refrain from going out unless absolutely necessary and cooperate in preventing the spread of the virus. Please try to refrain from gathering for graduation trips, thank-you parties, farewell parties, welcome parties, etc.
  • We will make another announcement about extra-curricular activities. In the meanwhile, please do not organize welcoming events/rush parties for freshmen face-to-face. If necessary, please hold related events online.
  • Please take great care and attention not to contract the virus from off-campus activities (including part-time jobs and volunteer activities).
  • Refrain from gathering to eat or drink with others regardless of whether they belong to TUAT or not; OR whether it is in a restaurant or in someone’s private house/residence, etc.
  • Please try to refrain from going on business trips even inside Japan. Overseas business trips, etc. will not be approved for the time being.
  • If you are confirmed with COVID-19, taken a PCR test or identified as a Close Contact to a COVID-19 positive individual, immediately report it to the University following this Self-Quarantine Guide.
  • Please pay close attention to the information and guidelines from the national and local governments and act according to the information, etc. provided by them.
  • We will make a new announcement if there is any change to the current status such as the government re-declares the state of emergency.
  • If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Student Support Office, etc. of the Faculty or Graduate School you belong to.
