Response Plan at Alert Level 1 Updated

 

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

Alert Level 1 (Restriction – Low Level)


The October 25 meeting of the Hokkaido University COVID-19 Task Force took the decision that the University moves its Alert Level to Level 1 (Restriction – low level) prescribed in the Response Plan of the Hokkaido University Business Continuity Plan During Coronavirus Outbreak (BCP) as of November 1st.

Please continue to follow the basic precautions such as avoiding 3Cs (Closed spaces, Crowded places and Close-contact settings), physical (social) distancing, mask wearing, and hand hygiene including thorough hand washing.


Decision Context for Alert Level 1:

– The University has completed vaccination for the members of the University community in its in-house vaccination program. The numbers of new cases and identified close contacts within its community have dropped rapidly.

– While the number of new cases in Hokkaido has also dropped rapidly and the decision was made to lift the Special Measures During Autumn Holiday Season to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19 after October 31st, it is requested that the basic precautions continue to be followed.

– Additionally, the number of new cases at a nation level has also been falling quickly.


Considering all the above, the University has resolved to move its Alert Level from Level 2 (Restriction – medium level) to Level 1 (Restriction – low level) prescribed in the Hokkaido University Business Continuity Plan During Coronavirus Outbreak (BCP) as of November 1st.

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

Please see above for the Hokkaido University Business Continuity Plan During Coronavirus Outbreak: Response Plan at Alert Level 1 as of November 1st.


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 instructions in our BCP and other guidelines. 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.
