What We Must Do Now to Help Prevent the Spread of COVID-19

Alert Level 3 (Restriction – High Level)

*Partially revised on September 13, 2021


The September 13 meeting of the Hokkaido University COVID-19 Task Force took the decision that the University maintains its Alert Level at Level 3 (Restriction – high level) prescribed in the Response Plan of the Hokkaido University Business Continuity Plan During Coronavirus Outbreak (BCP).


Decision Context for Alert Level 3:

– The number of newly confirmed cases in Hokkaido still remains high due to cases of variant particularly in the City of Sapporo, and the Government of Japan has made the decision to maintain the state of emergency in Hokkaido, which was initially declared on August 27th, until September 30th.

– As a nation, the state of emergency in 19 prefectures including Hokkaido has been extended until September 30th, and the pre-emergency priority measures in eight prefectures has also been extended until September 30th. In these areas, the health care provision systems are strained due to the increase of new cases, and the spread of the disease is not slowing down.


Considering all the above, the University has resolved to maintain its Alert Level at Level 3 prescribed in the Hokkaido University Business Continuity Plan During Coronavirus Outbreak (BCP), which was previously raised from Level 2 on August 27th. All members of the Hokkaido University Community must act in accordance with the guidelines in the BCP.

The COVID-19 Task Force will review the alert level based on its assessment of the state of emergency declared by the Government of Japan, other preventive measures taken by the Hokkaido Government, and the number of confirmed cases in Hokkaido.


We ask every member of the University community to continue efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and help maintain operations of the University by following the Level 3 instructions in our BCP. Please act with empathy and remain calm while respecting human rights and protection of private information in order to prevent biases and discrimination against COVID-19 patients and their families.
