Take all possible precautions to protect yourself, your loved ones, and the health of your society.
The number of cases in the downtown Tottori City area in particular is increasing at an alarming rate. Incidence of infection is also rising in the central districts of the prefecture in general.
■At particular risk are persons in close proximity (family, friends, loved ones), multiple occupants of a motor vehicle, and persons eating and drinking together.
■Infection spreads when removing face masks in the presence of close relations, and failure to maintain appropriate distance between friends in situations such as private dining, karaoke, etc.
■Avoid going out, including to work or school, if you feel even the slightest bit unwell.
■Install the COVID-19 contact tracer app COCOA on your smartphone. https://www.mhlw.go.jp/stf/seisakunitsuite/bunya/cocoa_00138.html (Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare)
To those thinking of going home for the summer and O-Bon holidays:
・Weigh the risks carefully, with particular thought to the high potential of infection to aged family members or those with pre-existing conditions (illnesses), before making any decision.
■Avoid the “3 Cs.” Consider cancelling or postponing any engagements with large groups of people or other high risk factors.
【Increase in Cases Reported Nationwide】 Exercise due caution when leaving and returning to the prefecture, and take all possible measures to prevent infection. If possible, avoid all travel to and from high-risk regions entirely.
The risk of infection is present everywhere. Do everything you can to avoid it.
■Discrimination toward and ill-treatment of individuals or families infected or undergoing treatment will not be tolerated. Do your part to provide support to all those suffering and seeking treatment.
