Mainichi wrote that the GOJ disclosed at a meeting with the Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan on Wednesday that USFJ lifted the mask mandate for its personnel at bases in Japan on March 14 and that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs asked the U.S. military to keep the mandate in place out of concern that COVID-19 may spread again. USFJ reportedly continues to require its personnel to wear masks off base. According to the ministry’s office on the Status of Forces Agreement, Japanese employees at U.S. military bases have expressed concern about the lifting of the mask mandate.
