Request for prevention of COVID-19 infection

We would like to thank all the town residents for their cooperation in taking preventive measures against COVID-19 infection to date.  

Although the number of newly infected cases of COVID-19 and the hospital bed occupancy rate have been decreasing in Gunma, we ask that everyone continue to take basic infection control measures such as “keeping distance between people,” “wearing masks,” and “hand hygiene by washing hands.  In particular, please wear/remove a face mask and implement ventilation according to the situation.

In addition, we would like to ask you to be very careful for “dining or drinking with large groups of people or for long periods of time,” as it increases the risk of infection.  We also ask that you take sufficient precautions, such as avoiding crowded places and refraining from activities with high risk of infection.
