As most of you already know, the first case of COVID-19 was confirmed in Nagano Prefecture on February 25, 2020. While the Prefectural Government has been updating its homepage as well as this page with various resources regarding the novel coronavirus, most of the information is in Japanese, so we have summarized it for you here, and provided links to other resources as well.
Please note that as of March 27, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Prefectural Government have officially requested all residents to avoid non-essential international travel. Please note that there are entry bans or restrictions for at least 73 countries.
Governor Abe has also requested residents to avoid all non-essential travel, including travel to other prefectures, especially those with high numbers of confirmed cases. The prefecture has recently launched their new campaign “Shinshu Stay Home Action” to encourage Nagano residents to stay home for Golden Week.
