As you know, the government currently considers issuing the declaration of a state of emergency (hereafter “the declaration”) in Tokyo and neighboring three prefectures, where Rikkyo’s campuses are located. The declaration at this time is not expected to set a strict restriction for educational facilities, but we cannot remain intact from on-going deterioration of infected cases of COVID-19.
One of the purposes for the declaration is considered to restrict going out. Based on this, part of in-person classes will be switched to online classes, so that you may avoid going out or especially coming to campus as much as possible. With regards to online classes to be switched, you will be contacted from your instructors via email. Please make sure to check your emails.
Also, after the declaration is issued, please make sure to avoid entry to campus as much as possible except for attending in-person classes or using library, which is reserved for you. Even when you need to come to campus, please make sure to take such thorough preventive actions against infection as wearing a mask on campus. With regards to the restriction on extra-curricular activities, I want you to follow the instructions from Student Affairs Division.
Regarding the course implementation policy for academic year 2021, we plan on providing optimal educational environments, while offering you more opportunities of in-person classes in combination with online classes as we notified on December 21. Individual effort and attention from each one of you on a regular basis are the most important, so that we may take maximum possible measures and continue offering you appropriate educational environments in order to make both your campus life and preventive measures against COVID-19 successful. In addition to your routine preventive measures including wearing a mask and sanitizing your hands oftentimes, please make sure to avoid any activities that are considered as a high risk of infection even when you are off campus.
I do hope that your high level of awareness will make your campus life at Rikkyo for academic year 2021 much more fruitful.
