Based on the change in the basic coping policy for the new corona measures, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology specifically clarified the situations where it is not necessary to wear masks at school sites, such as not only outdoor but also pools and gymnasiums in physical education classes. After that, I notified the whole country.

The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology has stated in the infection control manual that it is not necessary to wear a mask in physical education, but before the season when the risk of heat stroke increases due to some cautious schools, the Board of Education nationwide on the 24th I notified you again.



In this, it is clearly stated that specific situations where it is not necessary to wear a mask are not limited to outdoor playgrounds, but also pools and indoor gymnasiums during physical education classes.



In addition, for sports club activities, it is not necessary to wear a mask according to the physical education class, based on the guidelines created by each competition group for exercises that come into contact with each other at a short distance.



While being careful to refrain from talking about going to and from school, we are requesting that we give priority to measures against heat stroke, such as instructing them to remove their masks.



In addition, based on the fact that the government's basic policy states that children over the age of 2 before entering elementary school are not required to wear masks uniformly, we have decided not to require them to be worn uniformly even in kindergartens. I made it known.



On top of that, we are requesting that appropriate measures be taken to gain the understanding of parents regarding the concept of wearing masks.
