COVID-19: Shiga Prefecture has shifted the “Warning Stage” to the “Cautious Stage.”

The Shiga Prefectural Government announced on June 6 that the current “Warning Stage” would shift to the “Cautious Stage,” the lowest alert level, at 0:00 am on June 7. The reason was that there was no patient reported in the consecutive 14 days. While recognizing that the infection situation is stable, the prefecture is going to call for the citizens to avoid 3 Cs, namely “confined spaces,” “crowded places,” and “close contact with people.”

Although the stage shifts, there will not be any difference regarding anti-corona virus measures adopted by the Shiga Prefectural Government. By June 18, the prefecture continues to request the citizens of refraining from visiting areas such as Tokyo and Hokkaido, where there are new patients reported regularly. The prefecture also unveiled its policy on how to lessen the regulation regarding events gradually every three weeks.

In a statement on the same day, Governor Mikazuki says, “From now on, we will gradually raise the level of socio-economic activities while making our efforts to prevent COVID-19 from spreading. Let’s move forward together.”
