Oizumi Town’s Warning Level “4” (Continuation)

Thank you for your cooperation about prevention measures against COVID-19.

Oizumi Town’s Warning Level

As of August 31st, the weekly moving average was 43.7 and the number of positive cases within the prefecture, Tatebayashi Public Health Center jurisdiction.  Although the increase in the number of positive cases within the prefecture, Tatebayashi Health Center jurisdiction, and the town has slowed down, the number of positive cases remains high. Therefore, the alert level “4” will continue from September 3rd, Saturday 20 to September 30th, Friday.

The lending of the public facilities in the town was not allowed for those under 18 years of age since a large percentage of the positive visitors were under 20 years of age.  Age restrictions will be lifted and  the use will be continuously limited to residents within the prefecture.

Although the media reports indicate that a large percentage of the cases are mild, many more are moderate or severely ill, and medical care is under strain.

We ask all town residents, regardless of whether they have been vaccinated or not, to continue to take basic infection control measures, including “keeping distance between people,” “wearing masks,” and “hand hygiene by washing hands. 
In particular, the number of people under 20 years old. Please take thorough infection control measures at home.

Points of Request of the Guideline

  • Please be very careful about going to places where there is a high risk of infection.
  • When dining out, please dine in as small a group as possible. In the case of a large number of people, please take extra caution to prevent infection.
  • If you are going to use a restaurant for a dinner party, please use a restaurant that has taken proactive measures to prevent infection, such as ensuring adequate seating space and ventilation for avoiding three Cs, and hand disinfection of employees and users.
  • We would like to ask all residents to be very careful for having home parties with friends and acquaintances, large dinner parties, or drinking parties, because they increase the risk of infection.
  • There are people who are infected even though they have been vaccinated. Please be on your guard and take all possible measures to prevent infection.

The “New normal” lifestyle also asks each person to wear a mask as a basic infection control measure, but wearing a mask in environments of high temperature and humidity may increase the risk of heat stroke. If you are outdoors and can maintain a sufficient distance (at least 2 meters) from people, you should remove your mask.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and ask for your continued cooperation in preventing infection.
