Please avoid non-essential outings to infection spreading regions

The number of people infected with the novel coronavirus is not decreasing nationwide.
In addition, the number of infected patients is increasing in the neighboring prefecture of Kyoto.
Therefore, as Shiga prefecture, I would like to call attention once again to all prefectural citizens.
  1.  Please ensure basic prevention measures.
  2.  Please avoid non-essential outings such as dining and going out for leisure to regions where infections are spreading including Osaka and Kyoto.
  3.  We are heading into the holidays, however, let’s make sure that each one of us takes thorough measures for a calm holiday season.
  4. ・When visiting someone you do not usually see, please check each of your health condition beforehand.
