TBS reported at noon on the finding that according to a source, the GOJ is considering relaxing the limitation on attendees at major events as early as Sept. 19, earlier than the original date of Sept. 30. Noting that the GOJ is currently limiting the number of people allowed to attend major events, such as concerts and sport events, to 5,000 or 50% of the total seating capacity, the network said it is examining the possibility of relaxing the restriction to allow 70 or 80% of the total seating capacity for events where spectators do not cheer, such as classic music concerts and Noh theater. In addition, the GOJ is also mulling whether to allow more than 10,000 spectators to attend professional sporting events. The network said the GOJ will make a final decision on the matter on Friday during a meeting of its advisory subcommittee on the new coronavirus.
