    (1)For face-to-face classes, classrooms shall be assigned so that participants shall not exceed a maximum of 1/3 of each classroom’s capacity, and classes shall be carried out after taking infection-prevention measures, such as ample ventilation. Students are to wear masks when coming to campus, and to stay away if they feel unwell.
    (2)The classes listed above may take place online on the judgement of the teacher in charge of the class.
    (3) Where circumstances make it difficult to participate in face-to-face classes, the university plans to take measures such as simultaneously livestreaming the content of these classes. Please ensure that you consult beforehand with the teacher in charge of each seminar, or with the Educational Affairs Division for PACE. Consultation methods will be communicated separately via CELS.
    (4)Where students are taking classes via livestreaming during the periods immediately before or after a face-to-face class, the university will designate a classroom in which they can take the online classes. The use of this classroom is to be limited to these students.
    (5)If a State of Emergency is once again declared or the university is requested to suspend classes due to circumstances such as the increased spread of the novel coronavirus, the resumption of the face-to-face classes listed above may be cancelled, so please check the university’s website regularly for the latest information.
