1. Practice “new norms”

 Depending on the behaviors of each person, all the efforts made so far could come to naught. Practice “new norms” to prevent the pandemic, such as the following three basic measures: (1) Ensuring social distancing; (2) Wearing a mask; and (3) Washing hands.

* “New norms” are practices required to prevent droplet infections, contact infections, and short-distance conversations, such as avoiding the three Cs, washing and disinfecting hands, wearing a mask, practicing good cough etiquette, social distancing, going out in a small group during off-peak hours, and sitting side by side during meals instead of face to face.

Also, be aware of the following cautions to prevent heat stroke.
 ・ Be careful when wearing a mask in high-temperature and -humidity environments.
 ・ When wearing a mask, hydrate yourself frequently even if you are not thirsty.
 ・ If you can keep a sufficient distance (2 meters or more) from others outdoors, remove the mask.
 ・ Take a break without wearing a mask in a place where you can keep a sufficient distance from others.

2. Things to watch out for in daily life

 Common causes of cluster COVID-19 cases are, in particular, poor ventilation, a crowded space, and a place where a large number of unspecified people are likely to come into contact. Avoid gathering in a space with poor ventilation that is likely to be crowded with people.

2-1. Hand washing

 Hand washing is important before anything else. Wash your hands with soap or alcohol disinfectant frequently, in particular when coming home, before and after cooking, and before meals.

2-2. Cough etiquette

 If you cover coughing or sneezing with your hand, you may contaminate doorknobs and other objects you touch with a virus, resulting in transmitting infection to others. When coughing or sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with a mask, tissue, handkerchief, or sleeve to prevent the spread of infection to others.

3-1. When going out3. Things to watch out for when going out 

 When going out, using stores or facilities or participating in events, be aware of the following cautions to prevent infection.

3-1. When going out

 If you have symptoms such as fever, refrain from going out.
 When going out, practice “new norms,” such as wearing a mask and disinfecting your hands. Pay close attention to the infection status at your destination and act carefully according to circumstances.
 In tourist areas, ensure social distancing.

3-2.When using stores and facilities

 If you have symptoms such as fever, refrain from going out, including using facilities.
 Before using a facility, install the Contact-Confirming Application “COCOA.” If the facility manager requests contact registration to prevent the spread of infection, comply as much as possible.
 When using a facility where a large number of unspecified people gather, wear a mask in principle unless you need to prevent heat stroke or other physical risks and be sure to practice “new norms,” such as frequent disinfection and washing of hands. Avoid the so-called three Cs (Crowded places, Close-contact settings, and Confined and enclosed spaces) even when entering, exiting, taking breaks, and waiting.

3-3.When participating in an event

 If you have symptoms such as fever, refrain from participating in events.
 Before participating in an event, install the Contact-Confirming Application “COCOA.” If the event organizer requests contact registration to prevent the spread of infection, comply as much as possible.
 When participating in an event, wear a mask in principle unless you need to prevent heat stroke or other physical risks. Be sure to practice “new norms,” such as frequent disinfection and washing of hands.
 When participating in an event, avoid the so-called three-Cs, (Crowded places, Close-contact settings, and Confined and enclosed spaces) even when entering, exiting, taking breaks, and waiting and refrain from interacting with others in such environment.
 Before and after participating an event, act appropriately to prevent infection at the destination or while traveling (for example, avoid risky behavior at a party, etc.).

 The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has developed the COVID-19 Contact-Confirming Application (COCOA*) to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. This contact-confirming application allows you to be notified of the possibility of unknown contact with an infected person.

6. Discrimination

 Due to anxiety over and prejudice against those with the novel coronavirus, human rights violations, such as slander and discriminatory treatment, have occurred against infected persons, medical workers, people who maintain social functions, and their families.
 Heartless words and deeds and discrimination are absolutely unacceptable. We would like to ask you to act calmly based on reliable information, never to go along with such acts.
