The Main Points from the Governor’s Message on August 25th, 2021 regarding efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19
Due to the delta variant, a record number of cases are being seen in areas not only declared a state of emergency or a quasi-state of emergency, and there are no signs of the nationwide spread slowing down.
Yamaguchi Prefecture has been taking ‘intensive measures against the spread of the delta variant’ from August 13th, but even after the Obon holiday, there have been clusters linked to dinner parties. With the situation in Yamaguchi worsening, the prefecture entered stage 4 as the strain on hospitals are increasing.
To mitigate the further spread of the virus, and to avoid a disruption of the medical care institution, we ask for the understanding and cooperation from the residents of the prefecture on the following points.
