Fukuoka Prefecture will provide free PCR screenings at airports and stations to reduce the risk of the new coronavirus infections for those arriving from outer regions during summer vacation. Beginning on Jul. 28, visitors from the SOE-effective areas and ‘mann-enn boushi to juten sochi’ implemented areas can take free screenings by submitting air tickets or their IDs at Fukuoka Airport. Kitakyushu Airport, JR Hakata Station, and JR Kokura Station would also begin the same service shortly. The program would run until the end of August. Source: Yomiuri / Mainichi
