(2020.4.3) [Important Notice] Regarding the cancellation of extracurricular activities

In light of the situation regarding the novel coronavirus outbreak in Japan, HU is working on several policies to prevent students from getting infected and becoming a source of infection.

On March 24, HU released the “Restrictions on extracurricular activities to prevent the spread of Novel Coronavirus”, a list of measures which were to remain valid between April 1 and April 19, 2020.  

However, due to the rising number of cases and spread of infection in Japan, HU has come to the decision to suspend all extracurricular activities from April 3 (Fri) until further notice. We strongly urge students to be aware of their role as members of the society and to cooperate in preventing the spread of infection.

Please note that the following response may be subject to further reviews and extended as needed by considering the extent of infection in the future.
