The Main Points from the Governor’s Message on September 9th, 2021 regarding efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19
Following the nationwide spread of the coronavirus due to the delta variant, the state of emergency and quasi-state of emergency declared in 27 prefectures, were extended to September 30th.
Although there have been signs of improvement in Yamaguchi Prefecture, the situation remains unpredictable as we are still in stage 4 and there continues to be frequent travels between neighboring prefectures like Fukuoka and Hiroshima where the state of emergency was extended.
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.
