About measures for new coronavirus infectious disease in refuge

On Thursday, April 16, 2020, Kagoshima Prefecture was designated as a target area for the new coronavirus infectious disease declaration. Against this backdrop, infectious disease control is particularly important because it increases the risk of infectious disease when opening shelters.

We will respond as follows to the operation of the evacuation center in Aira City. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Consider evacuation to relatives / acquaintances' homes

Consider whether you can evacuate to a safe relative or acquaintance's house.
Due to the prevention of infectious diseases, the available space is limited compared to when operating a normal shelter.
We ask that you contact us in advance so that you can evacuate not only to the shelter, but also to safe relatives and acquaintances.
