2 – To other citizens that are not a resident of Mie
Mie’s government calls on all citizens residing in other provinces, including regions that are in a state of emergency and with reduced office hours, to come to Mie only if necessary.
The authorities ask everyone to check the guidelines of the place where they live before leaving their home, and to think carefully if it is really necessary to go out so to prevent the spread of the virus.
3 – Respect for human rights
Illegal acts of discrimination, prejudice and violence (ijime) against people from other provinces who came to Mie to work or study, health care providers and their families, foreigners living in Japan, among other citizens, are a violation of human rights.
Avoid acts of prejudice, discrimination, violation of human rights, abuse and violence against others.
