（Announcement）Regarding the University’s Handling Policy from June 19th Onwards (Transition to Level 2)
Based on the “Ryukoku University Action Guidelines for the Prevention of Novel Coronavirus Infection”, created upon the cancellation of the “Emergency Declaration”, the University is currently at [Level 3]. However, in consideration of the cancellation of self-restraint of crossing prefectural borders, the University will shift to “Level 2” from June 19th.
※As revisions have been added, please be sure to check the contents.
１．Measure Application Period

Please note that the level and contents may change according to the current circumstances.
3．Partially Relaxed Restrictions on Campus Entry
Entrance to the university will continue to be prohibited to ensure safety, but the following restrictions will be partly relaxed.
Even after the transition is made to [Level 2], Semester 1 (Spring) 2020 classes will still be held online as a general rule. However, while taking steps to prevent infection and take into consideration the safety and health of our students with the transition to [Level 2], we will carry out lessons at the university in stages by carrying out experimental and practical training courses. As soon as details have been finalized, they will be shared by each Faculty Office on the Portal Site.
Furthermore, online classes will continue to be offered in Semester 1 (Spring) to students who are unable to attend classes at the university due to difficulties in attending (students who have returned to their hometowns and international students who have returned to their home countries). Students can rest assured that they will not be adversely affected in their grade evaluations, etc. by not attending classes at the university. (Portal)
