Regarding the wearing of masks at school ceremonies such as graduation ceremonies, members of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare's expert meeting said, ``In a situation where the epidemic of the new corona has calmed down, we are considering a response that attendees do not have to wear masks. I summarized the view that it can be done.
However, it is hoped that those who are worried about their physical condition will refrain from participating and that their wishes regarding whether to wear a mask will be respected.
This was compiled in a document by members of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare's expert meeting, etc., so that it could be used as a reference for deciding whether to wear a mask at school ceremonies.
In the document, while it is reported that wearing a mask at school has the effect of reducing the risk of infection, there is a desire to remove the mask and participate in ceremonies such as graduation ceremonies and entrance ceremonies, which are once-in-a-lifetime events. I hope you can understand too.
After that, the expert said, ``If the epidemic of the new corona in the region has calmed down, it is possible to consider a response that attendees do not have to wear masks.''
On the other hand, there are points to be considered:
▽Those who are worried about their physical condition should refrain from participating,
▽Keep a distance between attendees,
▽Ventilate well, and
▽Avoid opportunities to have conversations nearby. ,
▽ it is desirable to respect the person's intention about whether to wear a mask, and to be able to participate with consent.
This view will be presented at an expert meeting of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare on the 8th.
