TBS and Fuji TV reported at noon on the GOJ’s draft roadmap for relaxing restrictions in areas under the state of emergency or quasi-state of emergency, saying that the government is planning to allow bars and restaurants in such areas to serve alcohol or extend their business hours if sufficient antivirus measures are taken. The new measure is likely to be adopted in October or November, when COVID-19 vaccines are expected to have been administered to most people in Japan. The network said the government is also planning to allow those who are fully vaccinated to travel across prefectural borders and to relax the current restrictions on the number of participants at large-scale events by utilizing vaccination certificates and negative test results.
