A message from the mayor concerning the corona virus situation (September 1st, 2020)
As the numbers of new infections have stabilized with regards to the time the “Corona outbreak emergency warning ‘Level 3'" was first issued, Miyazaki Prefecture has decided to lower the emergency state to “Level 2", starting today (September 1st).
Owing to the citizens understanding and considered action amidst this crisis, apart from the corona case that happened in the beginning of August, we were able to prevent further outbreaks in Kobayashi City. Against this backdrop, we have decided to revise the city's “Basic Response Plan" while taking the situation in the prefecture and the whole of Japan into consideration.
This however does not mean that the corona situation is resolved. I am kindly asking you, the citizens of Kobayashi City to practice the “New normal" as stipulated by the “Basic Response Plan" and to carry on following recommendations for preventive measures.
September 1st, 2020
Yoshihisa Miyabara, Mayor of Kobayashi City
