Recruit Holdings Announces Update Regarding Reports of COVID-19 (updated as of March 31)

Mar 31, 2021

As of March 31, 2021, we will no longer provide updates regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) infections within our corporate group.

Until now, we have been publishing such information with the aim of preventing the spread of infection from employees, but following the end of the state of emergency, and in light of prevention measures being adopted by individuals, we have determined that the announcements have fulfilled their role. Going forward, if circumstances change significantly, we will consider an alternative means of disclosure.

At the Recruit Group*, in response to the COVID-19, and the risk of the continued spread of infection, we have endorsed working from home and staggered working hours for all employees. We have also banned or limited overseas and domestic business trips, postponed or cancelled large meetings and events—both inside and outside the company—distributed masks and disinfectant to workers, and repeatedly called on employees to thoroughly implement infection prevention measures.

However, despite these measures there have been cases of COVID-19 infections at the Recruit Group. If new infections are confirmed, we will endeavor to quickly disclose that information here.

Furthermore, in the case of infections, we will cooperate with relevant healthcare establishments and aim to identify close contacts and records of movement at relevant locations. In addition, in accordance with the instructions of the health authorities, we will provide subsequent health monitoring progress reports, and disinfect affected areas.
