COVID-19 Health Alerts and Advisories

The central Japanese and Hokkaido governments have formally moved to the “Step 3” phase on July 10, 2020 which eases restrictions on mass gatherings. Given the policy change, and in response to the situation of new COVID-19 cases locally in Hokkaido, Hokkaido University moves from Alert Level 2 (Restriction – medium level) to Alert Level 1 (Restriction – low level) as prescribed in the Response Plan of the Hokkaido University Business Continuity Plan During Coronavirus Outbreak (BCP) today on July 10, 2020.


Please read carefully and follow the updated restrictions provided in the “Hokkaido University Business Continuity Plan During Coronavirus Outbreak: Response Plan at Alert Level 1 (July 10th, 2020).”


While the nation attempts a return to normal socio-economic activities and we are trying to get our education and research activities back on track at our university, a resurgence of COVID-19 is occurring in some parts of Japan. With this fact in mind, we all must take care to act with caution and self-control.


Hokkaido University will continue to make the best endeavors to address issues as required in order to resume our education and research activities and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. We would like to ask you for your understanding and cooperation to get through these difficult times.


Thank you for your continued efforts to support and safeguard our university community.
