The Japanese government has established a four-stage classification system for measuring the spread of COVID-19 infections: Stage 1: sporadic infection; Stage 2: a gradual increase in the spread of infection; Stage 3: a rapid increase in the spread of infection; and Stage 4: an explosion of new infections. In Stage 4, the implementation of compulsory measures is considered, including the declaration of a state of emergency.
COVID-19 has greatly restricted people’s daily lives. The Japanese government has asked its citizens to only leave home when necessary. People are also asked to wear masks, and to maintain a social distance when on necessary outings. To prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Japanese government has also promoted the practice of avoiding the “Three C’s”: closed spaces, crowded spaces, and close proximity to others. These practices are also being implemented in workplaces, schools, and various facilities.
The Japanese government has imposed restrictions on the entry of international travelers into Japan. If you are planning to visit Chiba Prefecture from abroad, please refer to the following link to check if the travel restrictions apply to you.
