To All Residents

Take Thorough Measures to Prevent Infections

Since late March, Oshu's Public Health Center has continued to confirm new cases of Covid-19: multiple clusters as well as cases where the route of infection could not be determined.

In addition to the basic precautions you have steadily taken, such as wearing a mask, washing your hands, avoiding the 3 C's, and so on, we ask that Oshu residents be especially cautious when switching locations. These occasions can increase the risk of infection transmission.

[Switching Locations: From Work to Breaktime]

  • Even if almost everybody wears masks while working, it's easy to let your guard down when switching locations to take a break, but this can increase risk of infection.

  • In breakrooms, smoking areas, changing rooms, and so on, maintain a high awareness of infection control tactics. Regularly ventilate these spaces, practice social distancing, and avoid having mask-less conversations.

Infection Prevention at Home and At Mealtimes

At Mealtimes

  • Wear a mask for conversations while eating.

  • Keep a safe distance apart from others.4 people enjoy a socially distanced meal while wearing masks.

At Home

  • Wear a mask, except for at mealtimes.

※ Instances of mask-less conversations with acquaintances have been increasing.

※ However, please wear a mask for conversations at home, just like you would for going out shopping.

5 Situations that Increase Risk of Infection

On October 23rd, the national subcommittee against Covid-19 released guidance entitled 5 Situations that Increase Risk of Infection.

Please check and make sure that these 5 risky situations don't sneak into your life.

Recommendations by the Subcommittee to the Government (provisional translation) [PDFファイル/769KB]

Practice Kindness

Discrimination, prejudice, or slander against any Covid-19 patient or their contacts, healthcare workers or their families, shall not be tolerated.

Patients experience psychological suffering on top of recovering from the illness.

Thus, we ask that people be aware that anyone could become infected, and to avoid quickly believing or spreading rumors or unconfirmed information – rather, act calmly based on correct information.

Iwate Pref. Covid-19 Response Hq: About Covid-19 Points of Concern

Because multiple infection clusters have been confirmed in Iwate, the Iwate Pref. Covid-19 Response Hq has published an advisory based on comments from the Pref. Covid-19 Response Expert Panel. (Translation is provisional.)
