Operation schedule of PF/PF-AR is cancelled due to the spread of COVID-19

April 9, 2020

Dear PF users,

On April 7, 2020, Japanese Government declared a state of emergency on the spread of Coronavirus Disease. This statement will be conducted in greater Tokyo area but Ibaraki is not included. However, the Tsukuba city has a lot of people coming from or going to Tokyo area, the Mayor of Tsukuba City has declared to move on to the same level as the conducted area.

Under the situation, we have decided that the ring operation schedule of PF/PF-AR from May 8, to July 1 is cancelled for reducing the risk of COVID-19 for users and ourselves. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

For any experiment that contributes to the COVID-19 pandemic, we may consider to operate the PF ring for a short period of time to support such kind of experiments.

If you have any comment or question, please do not hesitate to contact us.

I sincerely wish that all of you remain safe and healthy.
We will keep in touch with you.
