Regulations for businesses aimed at curtailing the further spread of the new coronavirus infections expand to more areas in Kyushu. Nagasaki City requests local businesses and its citizens to take ‘emergency actions.’ The program, which takes effect between Apr. 25 ~ May 11, requests self-refrainment from nonessential outings, cancellations of in-person events, implementation of shorter business hours (05:00~20:00/ for the period from Apr. 28) at eateries and karaoke parlors, and more. The city’s third business regulation against the spread of virus infections includes a financial rescue program for cooperating companies. Kumamoto City also requests eateries, nightclubs, and other facilities which serve alcoholic drinks to introduce shorter business hours between Apr. 29 ~ morning of May 13. Those shops in designated areas of Chuo Ward are requested to operate 05:00~21:00 and take no orders for alcoholic drinks after 20:30.
