[Mayor's Message] Following the announcement of the State of Emergency
August 26, 2021, 18:27

This is from Yuji Fujii, the mayor of Nagahama.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all the citizens for your daily efforts to prevent New coronavirus infections.
An Emergency Declaration was issued to Shiga Prefecture on August 25, and Emergency Measures will be implemented all over the prefecture from August 27 to September 12.
As the spread of infection continues nationwide, the infection has spread rapidly in Nagahama city since the end of July, and double-digit infected people are confirmed every day.
It is truly an outbreak of infection, and an unprecedented crisis continues.
The only way to overcome this crisis is for each and every citizen to take thorough infection control measures.
Please take basic measures to prevent coronavirus infection, such as wearing a mask, washing your hands carefully, and ventilating frequently, and refrain from going out unnecessarily.
Also, a closed space with poor ventilation, a crowded place where many people gather, and a close scene where you can have a close conversation. Take "Zero dense action" to avoid all these densities.
We will also strongly promote vaccination, which is the decisive factor to prevent the spread of infection, and will do our utmost to restore a safe life as soon as possible.
Please work together to overcome this difficult situation to protect ourselves with your loved ones!
