Expansion of emergency declaration to Aichi Prefecture and COVID-19 mutant strain


Dear PRI members;

The emergency declaration that had been issued for Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, and Hyogo from April 25 to May 11 has been extended from May 12 to May 31, and the area has been further expanded to include Aichi and Fukuoka prefectures. The Primate Research Institute has no specific additional instructions, but we ask that you continue to work to prevent the spread of infection.

We ask that you refrain from unnecessary travel across prefectural borders as much as possible. Remote work and staggered work hours are also recommended for commuting to and from work.

Lectures and seminars can also be held face-to-face in small groups in well-ventilated rooms, taking care not to be too dense.

The COVID-19 mutant strains that are currently spreading are highly contagious and are reported to cause a high rate of serious illness even in relatively young age groups. Therefore, please do not become accustomed to coronaviruses and follow the basic guidelines for preventing infection.

If you or a family member develops symptoms that make you suspect that you are infected with the new coronavirus, or if you strongly suspect that you have become a highly infected person even if you have no symptoms, please contact the nearest public health center for instructions, or contact the General Affairs Office by e-mail or other means.
