Kyodo News reported that the GOJ said on Monday it will tighten border controls for travelers from three U.S. states, Finland, and some other areas in response to the spread of highly contagious variants of the novel coronavirus. Kyodo wrote that in a set of changes to border control measures taking effect Thursday, those arriving from Indiana, Kansas, and Texas, as well as Finland, will be asked to stay in government-designated facilities for three days after arrival and undergo additional virus tests on the third day. The same measure will reportedly be applied to travelers from Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Georgia, Luxembourg, and five Russian oblasts including Astrakhan.
