Tokyo Toughens COVID-19 Dining Restrictions

Tokyo Toughens COVID-19 Dining Restrictions

   Tokyo, Jan. 11 (Jiji Press)--The Tokyo metropolitan government Tuesday tightened its restrictions on group dining at restaurants in response to the spread of the omicron variant of the novel coronavirus.
   The metropolitan government now limits group dining to up to four people per table in principle at eateries and bars certified as establishments with required infection control measures. The tighter rule will be effective until Jan. 31.
   The metropolitan government is again asking Tokyo residents to take thorough coronavirus measures, such as avoiding the three Cs of closed, crowded and close-contact settings. Those concerned that they may have contracted the virus are encouraged to undergo COVID-19 tests.
   Last month, the metropolitan government relaxed its COVID-19 dining restrictions, allowing group dining by up to eight people at certified establishments.
   This time, there are no restrictions on the serving of alcoholic beverages at such establishments.
