       Notice Concerning Group Dining(Oita Prefecture Government)         Nov 19, 2020

Oita has reported dispersed cases of COVID-19 infection up until this point. On Oct 17, however, a cluster has occurred through a group dining session where alcoholic beverages were served. The scope of infection has since spread further when one of the infected patients dined with another group on Oct 18.

Based on these premises, the Oita Prefecture would like to remind residents to remain vigilant when dining out with others.

1. Plan out seating arrangements
For instance:
・Share a table with four people or less
・Space out the tables amply
・Sit while facing each other diagonally (as opposed to face-to-face)

2. Avoid talking loudly, as well as speaking in crowded and close-contact settings.

3. Wear a mask if you wish to speak in a dining facility.

4. Do not share cups, chopsticks or other eating utensils with your companions.

5. Confirm the details of all participants.
・We encourage the installation of COCOA (COVID-19 Contact Confirming Application).

 

Infection prevention measure “Before Winter”Infection prevention measure “Before Winter”

Nov 13, 2020
COVID-19 Countermeasures Headquarters

○Effects of dropping temperatures and humidity
・Droplets which may carry the virus stay airborne longer and can travel
greater distances.
・The virus can survive longer periods outside the body.
・Using heating devices can create a “closed space.”
・Easier to get infected due to the decreased defensive mechanism of the throat’s mucous membrane.

→ With all the increased risks listed above, let’s prevent an outbreak this winter by following these procedures:

1.Thoroughness in basic infection prevention measures
(1) Strict enforcement of washing hands and coughing etiquette
(2) Wearing a mask properly (Wear a mask even you have no symptoms)
(3) Maintain physical distances and avoid the “3Cs”
(4) Practice a “new lifestyle” post-COVID-19
・Think carefully about seating arrangements for dinner meetings to reduce infection risk and enjoy your meal.

2.Ensure adequate ventilation
(1) Make use of “mechanical ventilation” such as ventilation fans to provide constant ventilation.
(2) Open windows and doors for “natural ventilation”.
・Recommended room temperature is above 18℃.

3. Appropriate humidity
(1) Control humidity in the room by using a humidifier or drying laundry indoors.
・Reccomended humidity is above 40
