三重県新型コロナウイルス「緊急警戒宣言」(2021年4月19日)

Social distancing

  • If you are going and returning from other prefecture, avoid going to regions with many covid cases. In relation to the other provinces, take appropriate preventive measures and avoid leaving home if you are feeling ill.
  • Before going to crowded places, such as events and facilities with agglomerations, think about it first, if it is really necessary for you to go.

Preventive Measures

  • Spending longer time when dining out with many people increases the risk of infection. With the exception of family members who live with you, spend just enough time for eating and with a few people as much as possible.  At such times, take appropriate preventive measures and beware of airborne particle infections.
  • If you are not feeling well, avoid going to work or school and other occasions that involve contact with other people, even inside your home, stay in a room separate from the other residents, always wear a mask and take appropriate measures. Schedule an appointment as soon as possible with the nearest medical institution.  If you do not know a doctor or do not know where to consult, call the “medical consultation centers”.

  • The government asks all citizens of Mie to avoid going to other provinces, except in cases of extreme necessity.
  • If you are going and returning from other prefecture, avoid going to regions with many covid cases. In relation to the other provinces, take appropriate preventive measures and avoid leaving home if you are feeling ill.
  1. Respect for human rights

Acts of discrimination, prejudice and violence (ijime) against patients and their families, people from other prefecture who came to Mie for work or study, health care providers and their families, foreigners living in Japan, etc. are a violation of human rights.
