Non-metropolitan restaurants, cafes, gyms, etc. Extended business hours from tomorrow
Restrictions on business hours at 9 p.m. in the metropolitan area remain
The business hours of restaurants and cafes in the non-metropolitan area will be reduced to 10 p.m. from tomorrow, but the business limit for the metropolitan area will remain at 9 p.m.
These measures will continue until the end of the Lunar New Year holiday, and the government sought understanding, saying that the risk of re-proliferation in the metropolitan area is high and cannot be helped.

The business hours of restaurants and cafes in non-metropolitan areas, indoor sports facilities, and singing practice centers, are extended by 1 hour until 10:00 p.m.
This is a measure that takes into account the trend of patient occurrence and the livelihood of self-employed people.
However, in the metropolitan area, the 9 p.m. business hours remain the same.

The difference between the metropolitan area and the non-metropolitan area is clearly revealed when looking at the trend of patient occurrence over the past two weeks.
Overall, the average number of confirmed cases per day decreased from 424 to 354, but the metropolitan area rather increased, and the non-metropolitan area drastically decreased by nearly half.
As the proportion of patients in the metropolitan area is increasing, it seems that if the business restrictions are eased, it could be a fire for a nationwide re-proliferation after the Lunar New Year holidays.

Ahead of the Lunar New Year, management of distribution stores such as department stores and hypermarkets will be strengthened.
Even now, tasting, tasting, and sample events are prohibited. In addition, we are planning to check the quarantine management status every day by the Ministry of Industry until the 14th.
In addition, the current social distancing and prohibition of private gatherings with more than 5 people, such as the 2.5th stage of the metropolitan area and the 2nd stage of the non-metropolitan area, will be maintained until the 14th, the end of the Lunar New Year holiday.
