information on corona
The situation of the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly improved, bringing down the infection level to Stage II as a result of our continuous efforts. I would like to express my deep gratitude to the prefectural citizens and business operators for their cooperation during this period.
In response to this situation, Kanagawa Prefectural Government (K.P.G.) decided to withdraw the requests to shorten business hours, etc. based on the Act on Special Measures on October 24 that we have made since last December.
We were able to bring a great improvement in the infection situation and will relax the restrictions. However, it doesn’t mean that the novel coronavirus has been completely eliminated. In order to return to normal life and restart economic activities while managing to live with the virus, it is important for all the citizens and business operators to voluntarily keep taking basic infection prevention measures in their everyday life.
Based on this idea, we consider the days between October 25 and November 30 as the period to thoroughly implement basic antivirus measures, and I would like to make the following requests.
[To prefectural citizens and business operators]
K.P.G. will start measures to boost regional consumption, such as a point return program for shopping on Kanagawa Pay app. and support to premium shopping coupon programs conducted by local shopping street associations. Also, preparing to resume Kanagawa Travel Discount, which offers discount-rate trips in Kanagawa to prefectural citizens, we will accept applications from participating business operators.
K.P.G. will continue to do our best to strengthen medical service provision system to cope with the possible sixth wave of infection.
We ask you to continue taking the basic antivirus measures thoroughly to prevent resurgence of infection.
