Topics for March 6th & 7th


First, we would like to ask all foreign residents to take measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. ultural festivals from various countries will be coming up this month, including the Maha Shivaratri festival celebrated in India and Nepal on March 11th, and the Irish festival, St. Patrick's Day on March 17th.

When attending these festivals in Tokyo, please make sure to take the following infection prevention measures. 

Do not attend events or dinners if you are not feeling well.

Also, do not take part in events or dinners when the venue is likely to be closed and crowded, and where infection control measures are not strictly enforced. 

Make sure to take all basic measures individually, such as social distancing, disinfecting hands, wearing masks and refraining from talking loudly.

If necessary, please consider new ways to have fun, such as staying at home or participating online.








Next, the downward trend in the number of Covid-19 infection in Tokyo is slowing down, and there is a risk that the infection may spread again. 

We ask everyone to refrain from non-essential outings both day and night.

Please also take basic measures against infectious diseases, such as wearing a mask, washing your hands frequently and avoiding crowded places, closed spaces and close contact situations. 

In order to protect yourself and others from getting infected, please take further measures to prevent infection.






Lastly, the Governor of Tokyo releases weekly reports in English on the latest COVID-19 impact and efforts in Tokyo.

Please be updated with the "The COVID-19 - Monitoring Report" streamed every Thursday at 7:15 p.m. on the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Official YouTube channel.
