Business Continuity Plan (BCP) during Coronavirus Outbreak Updated

We moved to Alert Level 2 on Jun. 21st, 2021.

 

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

Alert Level 2 (Restriction – Medium Level)


The June 21 meeting of the Hokkaido University COVID-19 Task Force took the decision that the University moves its Alert Level to Level 2 (Restriction – medium level) prescribed in the Response Plan of the Hokkaido University Business Continuity Plan During Coronavirus Outbreak (BCP).


Decision Context for Alert Level 2:

– While the state of emergency in Hokkaido was lifted as of June 20th, the City of Sapporo is still classified as Stage 4 based on the indicators set by the Government of Japan. The strong preventive measures such as request for shortened business hours will continue in the City of Sapporo as part of efforts to prevent a rebound of the epidemic.

– As a nation, although the state of emergency in nine prefectures was lifted on June 20th excluding Okinawa, seven of those prefectures have transitioned to be placed under the pre-emergency priority measures. The country is facing a crucial period in which strict compliance with measures against the re-spread of COVID-19 is of utmost importance in prevention of a rebound of COVID-19.

– At the University, while the number of new cases and identified close contacts are declining, we are still seeing a certain number of newly confirmed cases and close contacts occurring within the University community.


Considering all the above, the University has resolved to move its Alert Level from Level 3 (Restriction – high level) to Level 2 (Restriction – medium level) prescribed in the Hokkaido University Business Continuity Plan During Coronavirus Outbreak (BCP) as of June 21st.

The COVID-19 Task Force will continually review its alert level based on its assessment of 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 2 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.
