As of May 8, 2023, the status of new coronavirus infectious disease under the Act on Prevention of Infectious Diseases and Medical Care for Patients Suffering from Infectious Diseases has been changed from Category 2 to Category 5 infectious disease.
Accordingly, the level according to the Guide for Limiting Activities at NAIST to Prevent the Spreading of the New Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection (Formulated by the Crisis Measures Headquarters Conference on April 7, 2020) has been changed from 1 (partially restricted) to 0 (normal).
