Regarding to the extension of the Priority measures(As of February 18)

Updated:2022年2月18日更新 print

slide00

The national government has extended the period of priority measures to prevent the spread of the disease in 17 prefectures, including Fukuoka Prefecture, until March 6 (Sunday). In response to this, the prefectural government will thoroughly implement the same measures as before and do its utmost to bring the infection under control. As the infection is still spreading throughout the prefecture, the area to be covered by the measures will be the entire prefecture as before.

Request to Prefectural Residents

slide3

When going out, please wear a mask, including those who have been vaccinated, and disinfect your hands and take your temperature at the places you visit. Please ensure that basic infection control measures are taken. In addition, please carefully check the infection status of your destination and the infection prevention measures of the facilities you use, and refrain from going out to crowded places or places with high risk of infection. If you have symptoms such as fever, please avoid going out and proactively visit a medical institution to have a checkup.

slide4

Please refrain from unnecessary moving across prefectures, especially to and from the state of emergency zone and priority zones. If it is necessary to move, please undergo PCR or other tests to confirm that you are negative.

slide5

When going out to eat, please choose a restaurant that has received third-party certification from the prefectural government, or that complies with industry-specific guidelines, and refrain from using restaurants that do not have thorough infection prevention measures in place. Also, please do not enter or leave the establishments after the requested hours.

Generally, no more than four people may use the same table in a restaurant.

Please limit meals to two hours or less, including meals at private homes, and wear a mask and avoid shouting during conversations, as prolonged meals tend to make people loud due to heightened mood and loss of attention.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

slide7

Restaurants and their patrons should comply with the "Guidelines to Avoid Infection Risk while at Restaurants"(Attachment1).  

slide8

When singing at karaoke, please wear a mask, keep a distance of at least 2 meters from the person singing, and keep a distance of at least 1 meter between seats. Please disinfect microphones and other equipment each time people change.

slide31

Regardless of whether you have been vaccinated or not, asymptomatic people who are concerned about being infected due to being in an environment with high risks of infection, etc., should take the free test offered by the prefectural govenrment. Currently, this service is available at 218 locations in the prefecture.

Request to restaurants and Bars etc.

slide21

We request all restaurants to shorten their business hours. For certified restaurants, the hours of operation will be from 5:00 to 21:00, with alcoholic beverages served from 11:00 and stop at 20:30. Please display the "Infection Prevention Certification Mark" issued by Fukuoka Prefectural Government outside the restaurant in a place where users can see it.
Restaurants that are not certified should keep their business hours between 5:00 and 20:00 and not serve alcoholic beverages. Certified restaurants may also choose not to serve alcoholic beverages between the hours of 5:00 and 20:00, just like non-certified restaurants.

slide22

Please post a notice stating whether alcoholic beverages are served or not in a visible location outside the store so that patrons can learn about the status of the store in question.

Generally, no more than four people from the same group can be admitted to the same table in both certified and non-certified stores. Among certified stores, stores registered with the Vaccine and Testing Package System may allow more than 5 people at the same table if all users have undergone PCR and other tests and have been confirmed negative.

slide23

Restaurants that respond to requests to shorten their business hours will be given a cooperation money.

The amount of the cooperation money will be

- If the hours of operation are until 21:00, the amount of cooperation fee will be 25,000 yen to 75,000 yen per day, depending on the amount of sales.

- If the hours of operation are until 20:00 and no alcoholic beverages are served, both certified and non-certified stores will receive 30,000 yen to 100,000 yen per day, depending on their sales.

In addition, restaurants that have already received this before will receive a portion of the amount in advance. The amount is 475,000 yen for 21:00 and 570,000 yen for 20:00.

Request to Businesses

slide13

Businesses are urged to strongly promote initiatives to reduce human contact, such as Work from home, reducing the number of workers, staggered work hours, and bicycle commuting. Pay attention to the switching of places such as break rooms, changing rooms, and smoking rooms, and take thorough measures to prevent infection. In addition, please encourage your employees to take thorough measures to prevent infection both inside and outside the workplace.

slide14

Businesses such as logistics and transportation services, financial institutions, infrastructure companies, and waste disposal companies play a very important role in ensuring the stability of people's lives and the economy. Omicron strains are highly infectious, so please take measures to prevent infection.

Vaccination

Vaccines are available at municipalities, prefectural government vaccination centers, and medical institutions; please consider getting the third vaccination and actively consider getting vaccinated regardless of the type of vaccine. In addition to the current three prefectural government vaccination centers (Miyama, Nogata, and Yukuhashi), we are now considering the establishment of a new center near Hakata Station. We are preparing to open a new center as soon as possible and will let you know when it is decided.

Securing hospital beds, etc.

Six new hospital beds have been secured, increasing the number of beds from 1558 to 1564.

The prefectural government is actively encouraging medical institutions receiving COVID-19 patients to "discharge patients who meet the discharge criteria", "transfer patients to logistic support hospitals", and " discharge patients early, who are diagnosed by doctors to have minor illnesses that do not require inpatient treatment after 4 days of hospitalization even before meeting the discharge criteria". At the same time, we are striving for the efficient utilization of COVID hospital beds by promoting patients to transfer to logistical support hospitals, and by putting into operation a new system (information on the availability of logistical support hospitals) on the 16th to facilitate the transfer of patients to logistical support hospitals.

Patients who are discharged early from the hospital are accepted at temporary accommodation facilities where doctors and nurses are stationed.

Additionally, government subsidies will be expanded to support the ensuring a medical treatment system for residents of elderly facilities who are infected with COVID-19 and receive medical treatment in the facilities. We will prevent a shortage of hospital beds by informing the managers of elderly facilities about this and encouraging them to take advantage of this support system.

In Conclusion

We are very sorry to have to burden the prefectural residents and businesses once again, but we would like to ask for your understanding and cooperation in order to prevent the re-spreading of the disease and to bring it under control as soon as possible.

Let us act cautiously with the awareness that we ourselves are protecting each other and protect our loved ones and irreplaceable lives.
