Message from the Mayor Regarding Hiroshima City (Hiroshima Prefecture) Intensive COVID-19 Infection Prevention Measures (as of 12/11/2020)

Since the end of November, cases of COVID-19 have been occurring in Hiroshima City in every situation in everyday life, including dining out, at the workplace, and at home. As those who have been infected in these situations then go on to spread infection to others, infections have been rising rapidly, and there is every possibility that this will put a severe strain on our medical care systems.

Until this point, the City of Hiroshima has carried out infection prevention measures which aimed not only to stop the spread of infection, but also to keep socio-economic activity moving. However, as it was deemed by Hiroshima Prefecture that the number of new infections reported in Hiroshima City is approaching Level 4, we have decided that in order to put a stop to this emergent crisis, it is necessary to take measures which put priority on stopping the spread of infection in cooperation with the prefecture. Thus, in order to reduce the risk of infection and person-to-person contact in places where large numbers of people gather, we have cancelled or postponed city-organized events (etc), and have decided to close city-managed facilities where large numbers of people are expected to gather effective as immediately as is possible, during the Intensive COVID-19 Infection Prevention Measures period of December 12, 2020 to January 3, 2021.

To our citizens, I ask that in addition to basic infection prevention measures, such as wearing masks, frequent hand washing, and avoiding the 3Cs, that you reduce outings in order to reduce person-to-person contact. Infections are happening in every situation in everyday life; however, of the 3Cs, there has been a particular increase in cases which occur in unavoidable close-contact settings. Thus, we ask that you remember to wear a mask, maintain social distance, and keep your conversations short.

Since April, in order to reduce the number of those in the office during weekdays for positions which do not deal directly with citizens at the ward office or at Hiroshima City Hall, we have implemented staggered hours (six hour difference at max), working rotations that include weekends, and promoted work from home initiatives. We intend to continue these measures to reduce the number of employees in office in order to prevent the spread of infection, and as such, I ask that business owners also devise their own solutions when it comes to work policies, such as staggered hours, half days, and work from home.

I believe that what is most important right now, as cases continue to sharply rise, is how each and every one of our citizens chooses to behave. Stopping the spread of COVID-19 lies completely with the choices you make; citizens and business owners, I ask for your complete cooperation and your help moving forward.
