Kasama City Services Changes, etc. (2020/4/21)

In Response to the State of Emergency Declaration due to COVID-19 Spread

Information on Kasama City Services Changes, etc. (as of April 21, 2020) 

In order to prevent further spread of the coronavirus, the government issued a state of emergency on April 16. To protect yourself and others, it is necessary to avoid the "Three Cs" - closed spaces with poorly ventilated areas, crowded places, and close-contact settings.

Therefore, the entire Kasama City Hall has reviewed the work model of its employees, and from April 20 to May 6, they will be doing distributed shifts between normal commuting and working from home.

As a result, the working environment will be reduced, which may increase wait times on the phone or at the counter. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and ask for your understanding and cooperation.

We ask that citizens make requests by phone, mail, or e-mail and come to the office only when necessary.

 

Kasama City Mayor

Lack of Physical Activity? Stay at Home = Train at Home!

In this time when we all have to refrain from going outside, it is important to keep your body and your mind active. Such everyday actions as moving your arms and legs while watching TV, doing Japanese Radio Exercises, etc. will help protect you from losing your strength and endurance.

Use of public sports facilities, including sports grounds, has been restricted until May 6. Nevertheless, in order to relieve stress and prevent the consequences of physical inactivity, light exercises such as walking and jogging are acceptable.

In order not to cause stress to people living next to facilities, please refrain from both indoor and outdoor group activities.
