Next, we are asking all Tokyo residents to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. 

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government has issued a "Special Coronavirus Alert” for the year-end and New Year holidays. 

We would like to ask for your cooperation to “stay Home" with your family during this period. 

We urge you to refrain from going out unless it is urgent and essential, such as shopping for groceries or going to the hospital. 

The novel coronavirus infection is currently spreading. 

There are many people who are asymptomatic. 

Everyone, whether young or old, should be aware of the possibility that they may be infected without knowing or that they may lose their loved ones to this disease. 

Your further cooperation is asked to prevent the spread of COVID-19 during this holiday season.
