Changes to activity restrictions for prevention of the novel coronavirus infection


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 advisors.

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.
