Mask mandate ends in Japan

Japan no longer requests people to wear masks after three years. However, many Japanese citizens are still wearing masks for anti-virus protection.

The government’s decision to drop the mask-wearing request is part of the easing of COVID-19 rules in public places.

Prime Minister Fumio Kishida stated that mask-wearing is now an individual judgment. Despite the lifting of the mask ban, many people are still expected to wear them.

Restaurants, stores, and airlines removed their mask-wearing signs, but many employees still wear masks to protect customers.

Spectators at baseball and soccer games will be no longer required to wear masks and will be allowed to cheer without them.

Japan stopped requiring COVID-19 tests for entrants with three shots last fall.
