TV Asahi reported at noon that Kanagawa Prefecture has decided to limit the number of days public high school students will be allowed to go to school to once or twice a week until Sept. 12, when the state of emergency is scheduled to end. Governor Kuroiwa reportedly said: “Classrooms and places where children gather are likely to become the center of the spread of infection, so we decided to take quick action.” According to the network, high school seniors will be allowed to go to school twice a week and juniors and below will be allowed to go once a week. The students will attend classes online on the days when they don’t go to school. The network said although only 63 students at public schools in Kanagawa tested positive for COVID-19 in June, the figure for this month was 539 as of Aug. 19.
