Changes to activity restrictions for prevention of the novel
Dear Members of PRI:
Although the spread of the novel coronavirus infection disease has not
ceased, Aichi Prefecture ended its emergency status on August 24, and Kyoto
University announced that its activity restrictions will be reduced from Level 2
to Level 2(-) starting on August 26. Similarly, PRI has decided to relax some of
the restrictions starting on August 26 and until further notice. Please note
that we will continue to adjust the level of activity restrictions depending on
the state of the pandemic.
1) Traveling to Tokyo (all 23 Wards), Nagoya, Osaka, and Fukuoka is
permitted. Visitors from these areas are also allowed. However, please take
measures to prevent infections as much as possible.
2) Use of public transportations is permitted. Again, please take measures to
prevent infections as much as possible. Staff and students are encouraged to
continue working from home in consultation with their supervisors and academic
3) We encourage everyone to continue recording their body temperature every
morning, but reporting of the temperature status to supervisors/adacemic
advisors is no longer required.
4) If you are conducting lectures, experiments, or lab/field exercises,
follow the Level 2(-) activity restrictions listed in the "Guidelines for
Graduated Restrictions on Activities to Prevent the Novel Coronavirus
Infection", issued by the Kyoto University Graduate School of Sciences.
5) Continue to refrain from having drinks or Karaoke parties at eateries.
Communal dining is not prohibited, but keep the group size to four peole or
fewer. Needless to say, avoid congested areas such as busy commercial districts
and tourist destinations.
6) Evaluate the risks that accompany your activities based on the criteria
provided in the "Measures against Actions and Behaviors with High Risks of
the Novel Coronavirus Infection" prepared by the PRI Center for Human
Evolution Modeling Research.
