The state of emergency has been extended again, and restrictions will continue until the end of September. The government has, however, begun to consider measures to ease the situation. Vaccination is progressing, and it is expected that all those who wish to be vaccinated in Japan will be done by the end of October. If a consensus can be reached, we may see an easing of preventative measures in November. Under the government's proposal, extracurricular activities will be included in the list. Vaccination would be a requirement, but for those who do not wish to be vaccinated, presenting proof of a negative test may work as a substitution.

 I am by no means saying, "let it loose". These conditions alone will not lead to zero cases of Covid. Even after the relaxation, we must continue to take basic precautions such as wearing masks, washing our hands, and disinfecting ourselves.

 The vaccination rate in our university is about 70% for students and 80% for faculty members. For those who have not yet been vaccinated, please consider it as a priority for young people has started. For those who are physically unable or unwilling to receive the vaccine, a test for the virus can be used for the same requirements.
