All national dailies wrote that Saitama, Chiba, and Kanagawa prefectures decided on Wednesday not to extend beyond Oct. 24 their requests for bars and restaurants to stop serving alcohol after 8 p.m. and close at 9 p.m. and allow them to operate according to their regular business hours starting on Oct. 25. Tokyo will likely decide on Thursday to end its operational restrictions on drinking establishments whose COVID-19 prevention and mitigation protocols have been certified but will maintain its requests for non-certified ones. According to the papers, 85% of the bars, restaurants, and other drinking establishments in Tokyo, 73% in Saitama, 80% in Chiba, and 68% in Kanagawa have been certified.
