A video message from the mayor of Toyota City

【The special enforcement period against the COVID-19】

 

Overview

・The special enforcement period against the COVID-19 has been extended until March7th.

We should keep trying not to get sick because a lot of hospitals are having great difficulties dealing with a rapid patient increase.

Elderly people often tend to get seriously ill when becoming infected with the virus.

Please try to be very careful about the virus in order not to infect the elderly. I will try, too.

 

・What Toyota City has done so far

We have released the mayor’s messages several times and made posters to help prevent the spread of the virus.

We have also delivered a meal 3 times a day for those who are recuperating at home and checked their medical condition by phone once a day.

New supporting projects which Toyota City has decided to start

[Donation to support the COVID-19 front line workers]

This donation will support those who are working very hard to help people in need at hospitals and nursing homes.

[Subsidy for promoting telework]

You can use a special plan to book certain space for teleworking in the daytime at a hotel in Toyota City at a better price.

[Congratulatory gift of money for newborn babies]

We will give 100,000 yen for each newborn baby. We will continue this project until April 1st, 2022.

・What Toyota City will do in the future

The COVID-19 vaccination

We launched a new specialized team for promoting the COVID-19 vaccination on January 14.

A special coupon for the vaccination will be sent to people who are 65 years and older after mid-March.

They will be able to get vaccinated after April 1st.

People who are 64 years and under will receive the coupon after mid-April.

They will be able to get vaccinated as soon as the vaccine is ready.

At this point, however, we haven’t decided exactly when to start the vaccination for them.

 

Mayor’s message to all residents in Toyota City

Even if you seem to be healthy, please try to consider a possibility that you might be infected with the virus without showing symptoms.

Please wear your mask to avoid spreading and getting infected with the virus.

Please keep in mind that you might be infected with the virus and try to wash and sanitize your hands when you go out.

When you finish doing something or before you go out, please also think that the virus might stick to your hands and then try to wash and sanitize your hands.

Please wash and sanitize your hands when you go to work, too. Wearing a mask cannot prevent the virus from spreading completely.

It is very important “not to get together with a lot of people” in order to avoid getting infected with the virus which you cannot prevent completely only by wearing a mask.
