All national papers wrote that the GOJ is mulling relaxing the present COVID-19-related limitation on the number of people who can attend social events, such as music concerts and professional baseball games. As many as 10,000 to 20,000 people would be allowed to participate instead of the present 5,000, probably beginning on Sept. 19 when a four-day weekend starts. The GOJ may also consider easing the restriction for indoor events. However, since the ongoing coronavirus outbreak has not yet been brought completely under control, the GOJ reportedly plans to keep in place a separate 50% cap on seating capacity for outdoor events.
