Request from Yamaguchi Prefecture regarding the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 (June 18th, 2020)
Request to the citizens and companies of Yamaguchi Prefecture
June 18th, 2020
In Yamaguchi, thanks to your cooperation, there have been no new confirmed cases since May 6th. However, to prevent the spread of COVID-19, it is important not to let our guard down and continue taking measures to stop the spread.
Although there are regions where new cases continue to be confirmed, based on the nation’s basic policy and the measures taken in other prefectures, we will not request self-restraint to travel to any specified location. The Yamaguchi COVID-19 Infection Status Monitoring Council will continue to monitor the infection status.
I would like to ask for your cooperation and understanding in the following points to prevent the second wave of infections, and toward the recovery of socio-economic activities.
・For travel outside of the prefecture, please take into consideration the information provided by Yamaguchi as well as the prefecture that you are traveling to, avoid the use of facilities that are of risk, and take measures to prevent the spread of the virus.
・For businesses, please follow the guidelines placed by each industry and take measures to prevent the spread of the virus, such as remote work, video conferencing, use of transparent partition, and restrict admission when crowded.
・Please continue to take preventative measures such as avoiding the 3 C’s (closed spaces, crowded places, and close-contact settings). Please also refer to the ‘New Lifestyle Example’ and continue to take basic preventative measures like social distancing, wearing masks, and washing hands.
