Notice Concerning Group Dining

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).

Notice for citizens and business owners

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

Request to all residents (on seeking medical consultations when displaying a fever or other cold-like symptoms)

(1)   How to request for medical consultations when you have a fever

     If you are experiencing a fever or other cold-like symptoms, refrain from going to work or school, and consult your family doctor or a nearby medical institution over the phone. If your family doctor cannot provide direct assistance, you will be referred to a designated nearby medical institution.

     To avoid congestion and other forms of complication, the names of designated medical institutions will not be revealed publically. If you do not have a family doctor, wish to make an afterhours consultation, or otherwise feel uncertain about whom to contact, please direct your call to the Medical Visit Consultations Centre, a service available from Nov 9 (Tel: 097-506-2755. Hours: 09:00~21:00). The consultations centre will subsequently refer you to a designated nearby medical institution. The centre runs regularly from late November yearly during influenza season, and will be available for 24-hours daily starting from Nov 16.

 (2)   Basic infection prevention measures

     We would like to remind residents to adapt to the new normal through actions such as thorough handwashing, practising good cough etiquette, wearing facemasks and avoiding the overlap of the 3Cs.

Installing the COVID-19 contact tracing application COCOA

The contact tracing application COCOA was developed by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare as part of the effort to contain the spread COVID-19. COCOA is a smartphone application that delivers information on instances of potential contact with COVID-19 patients.

For your safety, the safety of those around you and the wellbeing of the greater community, we strongly encourage all residents to make use of the COCOA application.

Considerations for human rights in relation to Covid-19

Future Measures Concerning Influenza Season Preparations and the Revitalization of Socio-Economic Activities

Future Measures Concerning Influenza Season Preparations and the Revitalization of Socio-Economic Activities

Sep 17, 2020
COVID-19 Countermeasures Headquarters
Emergency Revitalisation of Socio-Economic Activities Headquarters

 While there has been sporadic reports of Covid-19 within Oita prefecture, no new cases have been confirmed since September 10. According to the Government of Japan’s ‘Infection Status Assessment’, Oita has maintained its status at Stage 1, a level that requires the lowest degree of caution.

  I would like to express my gratitude again towards residents for their understanding and cooperation towards our disease control efforts, not to mention our medical staff who have worked devotedly in the frontlines with a strong sense of duty.

 On the other hand, it is increasingly important to establish a robust healthcare framework as we enter influenza season. To tackle influenza and Covid-19 at the same time, we must communicate with family doctors and strengthen testing capacity across the prefecture, including in remote regions and on islands.

 Oita’s social and economic sectors have been hard hit due to the reduction in the population’s overall mobility. Amidst current trends, the Government of Japan will gradually relax restrictions concerning events starting from this week on September 19. The ‘Go to Eat’ campaign will commence from October 1, with Tokyo expected to join the ‘Go to Travel’ campaign on the very same day – the Oita Prefecture, too, must use the opportunity to revitalise socio-economic activities while implementing infection prevention measures.

 Following these lines, we would like to request understanding and cooperation from residents and business communities alike as we take the following measures.

 1   All residents and business operators should thoroughly adopt the ‘new normal’ by practicing diligent handwashing,
   good cough etiquette, the usage of facemasks, partaking in social distancing and avoiding the overlap of the 3Cs. We
   also strongly recommend the usage of the contact tracing application (COCOA).

 2   The testing rate is projected to reach 2,000 cases per day or higher as we enter influenza season. The prefecture
   will reinforce the medical examination framework so that residents across all local regions can receive medical
   attention when necessary – to ensure that small clinics based in remote regions and islands are prepared for both
   influenza and Covid-19, the prefecture will provide assistance in delivering technical support from health centres to
   such clinics.

 3   In order to revitalize Oita’s economy that was crippled by the effects of Covid-19, the prefecture will swiftly
   implement the ‘Oita Prefecture Socio-Economic Revitalization Strategy’, formalised on August 27, among private
   companies and administrative bodies. Seizing new opportunities as restrictions on events gradually ease, the
   prefecture strives to revitalise the areas of art, culture and sports. Concerning the ‘Go To’ campaigns, the
   prefecture has requested local ryokan and hotels to partake in ‘Safe Omotenashi Hospitality’ through the exercise
   of infection prevention measures – Oita has prepared itself well ahead of other prefectures so that we may welcome
   visitors among us once more. The tourism sector greatly looks forward to receiving eager-to-travel Tokyoites while
   encouraging the practice of ‘new travel etiquettes’. While we must all remain vigilant towards trends occurring across
   different regions, the Oita Prefecture would like to encourage local residents to enjoy the highlights of travel once
   again.

1st~145th Reports

About recuperation in accommodation facilities for COVID-19 patients with mild or no symptoms

Key Summary from the COVID-19 Countermeasures Experts Meeting

- Japan’s present status - 
Whether displaying minor or severe symptoms, around 80% out of the confirmed patients in Japan have not transmitted the infection onto others. This factor has contributed to slowing the growth of infection in comparison to nations with rapidly rising figures. The outbreak in Japan has yet to escalate at an unsuppressed rates as of March 9, and from this it can concluded that the situation is somewhat under control.

- Long-term outlook -Even if the domestic outbreak has been under control for the time being, it would not be surprising if the infection were to resurface in the short-term future. In face of a global epidemic, recurring cases of infection brought in from overseas can also be anticipated.

- Request to the public -
Transmission clusters have been confirmed in live houses, sport gyms, yakatabune (privately-owned boats) and buffet-style parties. The venues in question share the following three characteristics, and any location posing similar conditions should be avoided whenever possible.

Advice for Households ~8 Points to Keep in Mind~ [PDFファイル/550KB]

Advice for Households with a Suspected COVID-19 Patient (Summarised by the Japanese Society for Infection Prevention and Control)

What is the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) infection?

  The COVID-19 infection is a viral infectious disease like the common cold. Common symptoms include a lingering cough that may last for around a week and a strong sense of fatigue.
  The incubation period between infection and onset can be anywhere between 1 to 12.5 days, though a 5-to-6-day-period seems to be the most common timeframe.
  Out of the cases of pneumonia caused by COVID-19, 80% display minor symptoms, and relatively few children have been diagnosed.

On the other hand, elderlies and individuals with underlying health complications may be more prone to becoming seriously ill.

Methods of transmission for COVID-19 include droplet transmission and contact transmission.

-Droplet Transmission-
The virus is released via the infected individual’s respiratory droplets through actions such as sneezing, coughing and spitting before it is transferred to healthy individuals by contacting surfaces of the eye, mouth or other body parts.

-Indirect Contact Transmission-
The virus is distributed by the infected individual after they sneeze or cough into their hands and touch other surfaces. Transmission occurs via the mucous membrane when healthy individuals touch the contaminated surfaces, and then touch their mouth, nose or other body parts.

image_explanation

Number of individuals who have undergone PCR testing for COVID-19 (as of Nov24, 2020)

44 persons have undergone PCR testing on Nov 2439 returned negative results and 5 returned positive.

Out of the 25,092 tests performed within Oita prefecture, 24,864 returned negative results and 228 returned positive (Patients released from hospital: 164, death toll: 3)

Hand Washing and Cough Manners

1.  Display posters and/or other materials at the entrance to promote good hygiene practices. Poster contents may include ‘please do not enter if you have a fever or any respiratory symptoms’ and ‘please be mindful of others when coughing’. Other precautionary measures, such as encouraging hand-washing and providing hand-sanitizers, should be exercised whenever possible.

  Hand Washing  Cough Manners

2.   Wearing a mask in a crowded space, especially locations with poor ventilation such as indoor spaces, is considered an effective preventive measure against infection. However, unless the wearer’s surrounding is extremely crowded, the mask’s effect is greatly reduced in outdoor spaces. When providing masks and encouraging mask-usage, be mindful to inform event participants of the correct ways to use a mask.

-How to Use a Mask Correctly-

・    Cover the surface from the nose to the chin thoroughly, leaving no gaps.
・    Do not touch the outer surface of the mask.
・    Remove the mask by holding onto the ear-loops.
・    Wash hands thoroughly after disposing the mask in a bin
