Saitama Prefecture held a meeting of the Anti-Emergency Headquarters of the new Coronavirus Headquarters to set specific criteria for the relaxation of the measures to refrain from going out and request for closure when the emergency declaration was lifted, as well as the number of new infected people in Tokyo as a guide. The provision of alcoholic beverages at restaurants that are held until 1 p.m. will be relaxed by 10 p.m. on conditions such as the number of newly confirmed infected people in the prefecture of “35 people per week” will be reduced by 10 p.m.
Saitama Prefecture held a meeting of the Headquarters for Countermeasures on Tuesday to set specific criteria for relaxation and cancellation of self-imposed control and requests for closure when a state of emergency was lifted.
According to that, the time limit of the time limit of the provision of alcoholic beverages is to judge both based on the index such as the number of newly confirmed infected persons in the prefecture except for the group infection, the percentage of patients who do not know the route of infection, the rate at which the severely ill person occupies the hospital bed, and the number of infected persons in the week in Tokyo.
Of these, the provision of alcoholic beverages at restaurants that are currently available until 1 p.m., the number of newly confirmed infected people in the prefecture will be eased by 10 p.m. by 10 p.m., such as “less than or equal to 35 people per week”, and will be canceled if it becomes “less than or equal to weekly” restaurants.
On the other hand, in the event that the number of infected people in the prefecture increases in the future, we plan to refrain from going out and requesting closures again based on the number of newly confirmed infected people in the prefecture and in Tokyo.
In addition, we decided to start the reopening of prefectural schools from next month, and after introducing distributed school sit-ins and time-difference schools for the next month, we decided to hold classes as usual from next month.
Governor Ono :”Working to Restore Social Life”
At a meeting of the Countermeasures Headquarters, Governor Ono said, “The period of self-restraint continues, and the impact on our lives in general is significant. Based on the assumption of measures to prevent infection, we would like to reopen schools and gradually work to restore our social life.”
