Also continue to refrain from moving beyond the prefectural border.
Regarding laboratory works, please follow the instructions by your academic advisor. Only the minimum number of laboratory personnel required to continue the ongoing experiment / research is permitted to enter the laboratory in the campus. If you need to enter the laboratory, please reduce the time spent in the room, and take precautions to prevent the spread of infection, such as wearing a mask and avoiding close contacts. All other laboratory personnel should work at home.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding job hunting, please contact the professor in charge of job hunting in your department and your academic advisor by using e-mail or internet meeting system.
