Response to COVID-19 (Updated March 5)
First of all, we express our sincerest condolence to people and their families suffering from COVID-19. We truly hope for recovery of the patients.
In such a harsh environment, the company has been taking actions under the policy placing the safety of our employees, their families, and all of our stakeholders as our utmost priority.
The company has continued to implement the following measures with reference to the “new ways of living” proposed by the government as a countermeasure against COVID-19 infections.
- Commuting at off-peak hours, flextime system, telework, and shift work
- Effective use of internal and external online meetings
- “Three Cs” avoidance in offices, manufacturing sites, and shared spaces
- Prohibit overseas business trips and refrain from domestic business trips and non-essential outings
- Prohibit business dinners inside and outside the company
- For employees who come to work, make sure they go home by 8:00 p.m.
On Friday, March 5, the government announced that the period of the “declaration of emergency” to prevent the spread of COVID-19 has been extended by two weeks from the original period until Sunday, March 7, to Sunday, March 21.
We will continue to implement the above measures, place the highest priority on preventing the spread of the infection, and work to ensure the safety of all concerned and the continuation of our business activities.
Thank you for your patience and kind understanding.
