At a press conference today (September 28),the national government announced that it would lift the state of emergency declaration for 19 prefectures including Ibaraki Prefecture on September 30. Although the current restrictions will be lifted on October 1 following the cancellation of the state of emergency, the government asked everyone to continue to follow the basic infection control measures, take precautions when eating and drinking with other people, and observe other preventative measures.

In addition, Ibaraki Governor Oigawa announced yesterday (September 27) that he would lower the Prefecture's own COVID-19 response level from stage 3 to stage 2.

Owing to the cooperation given by our citizens and business operators, the state of emergency declaration was lifted and Ibaraki Prefectural COVID-19 response level was lowered to stage 2. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of you for your cooperation. Meanwhile, the easing of stages does not mean that the risk of infection is reduced to zero. To prevent the spread of infection again and to revitalize socio-economic activities, we would like to ask you to continue to thoroughly observe the appropriate preventative measures.



Tatsuo Igarashi
Mayor of Tsukuba
