Evacuation actions based on the situation of COVID-19 infection

COVID-19 infection is spreading, but disasters can happen at any time.

The government has prepared the “5points to keep in mind” about evacuation in the event of a disaster. In the event of a disaster, secure to protect yourself and take appropriate evacuation actions. When a disaster strikes, be aware that you are responsible for protecting your own life, and take appropriate evacuation action.

Even if COVID-19 has not subsided, in principle, evacuate hazardous place if disaster hits. 

5 points to keep in mind

  • “Evacuate” means to escape from the danger. If you are in a safe place, you do not need to go to an evacuation shelter.
  • Evacuation shelters are not only primary and junior high schools or public halls. Consider evacuating to relative7s or an acquaintance’s home that is safe.
  • There is a shortage of masks, disinfectant, and thermometers. As much as possible, bring your own.
  • The evacuation shelters designated by the town may have changed or increased in number. Be sure to check website of Oizumi Town and Multicultural Community Center in the event of a disaster. 
  • Going outside during torrential rains is dangerous, even in a car. If you have no choice but to spend the night in your car, take great care to check your surroundings, etc., to make sure you are not caught in a flood. 

Points to be careful of at the shelter

During a disaster, shelters tend to be densely packed environments, increasing the risk of infection.
Please cooperate in taking infection prevention measures as you will not infect with and you will not give others. Please cooperate in taking measures against infectious diseases so that we do not catch them ourselves and do not pass them on to others.

Things to bring to the shelter

In a shelter, the risk of infection is increased by sharing things. In addition, there is a limit to the number of items the town can prepare.
Please bring necessary items for your health and infection prevention by yourself as much as possible. 

  • Masks, Large handkerchiefs and towels in place of masks 
  • Soap, Disinfectant, Wet Wipes
  • Thermometers
  • Foods, Drinks
  • Blankets, Clothes, Sleeping Bags
  • Daily necessities (Medicines, Flashlights, Mobile Batteries, Mobile Radios, etc.) 
  • Other things for infection prevention measures
