【Notice】Updated Response to the Novel Coronavirus Disease Control (April 3, 2020)

As we are at the extremely important stage of preventing the spread of the Novel Coronavirus Disease, Fukuoka City is urging the citizens to avoid going outside unnecessarily not only on weekends but also on weekdays as much as possible in order to steer clear of the following three conditions: closed space with poor ventilation; crowded with many people; and conversations and vocalization in close proximity.
With changes in the current situation and against the further spread of COVID-19, Fukuoka City has updated its response to weekends’ activities including events organized by the City and temporary closure of public facilities, which has been extended to on weekdays and paid outdoor facilities in the parks (such as a baseball field).

●Events Organized by Fukuoka City

For events scheduled both on weekdays and weekends from April 4 (Sat) to 19 (Sun), they all have been cancelled or postponed.
