Go To Eat Call for less than 4 people in principle Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries

Go To Eat Call on the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries to limit the number of people to 4 or less November 16 at 11:18 p.m.

With regard to Go To Eat, which stimulates demand for eating out, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries has begun calling on prefectures to limit the use of meal vouchers and points to eating and drinking for less than four people, in principle, in order to prevent the spread of infection.
Regarding “Go To Eat,” Prime Minister Kan indicated at the government’s headquarters that he would ask prefectural governors to consider that eating and drinking with a certain number of people or more would not be eligible for points in areas where the spread of infection was seen.

In response, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, which has jurisdiction over Go To Eat, began calling on prefectures to limit meal vouchers and points to use for four or less people on the 16th.

In addition, in prefectures that respond to the call, even if there are more than five people, by dividing the table, it is said that the correspondence to have four people or less in one lump and eat and drink is requested to the shop side.

In addition, for users who do not cooperate in eating and drinking of four people or less, we have asked the user from the restaurant to refrain from using meal tickets and points.

On the other hand, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries is requesting that each prefecture consider how to deal with the families of five or more people.

With regard to these measures, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries has said that it is desirable to start on the 21st of this month, when the three-day holiday begins, especially in areas where the spread of infection is seen, and we will proceed with concrete discussions with each prefecture in the future.
