COVID 19 Updates for Japan
 
Midori Takeuchi, Consul General for Japan in Denver, presented updates for COVID-19 in Japan. Consul General Takeuchi arrived in Denver in November 2018. She is one of 39 women in Director positions. Her hometown is Nagano City, not far from Longmont's Sister City of Chino, Japan.
 
Japan enforced a state of emergency on April 7, relative to the COVID-19 pandemic. The peak for the virus occurred at the end of July. Today, Japan prohibits visitors from 169 countries. However, people are allowed into Japan under special circumstances and from countries that are experiencing a low infection rate.
 
In-person learning was implemented in June, as Japan is not ready for online classes. The summer vacation for students was shortened, and today, school teachers give assignments for students to complete.
 
Japan has experienced 1,296 deaths from COVID, and residents are asked to avoid the three Cs - closed atmosphere, crowded conditions and close conversations. Although it is custom for people to wear masks in Japan and there is no law to require people to wear masks,, the government strongly advises people to wear masks.
 
The country has approved over $2 trillion in stimulus money to assist residents and businesses, which represents 40% of Japan's annual GDP. The highest unemployment in the country was 2.9% in May. The Prime Minister of Japan had two cloth masks delivered to every resident in May!

Message from our Club President 


Hello Everyone,

 

The Rotary theme for 2020-21 is Rotary Opens Opportunities.. A key goal for the upcoming Rotary year will be how do we maintain and continue all that the club has built over the last 100+ years?  What do we need to do to maintain the club as a cohesive unit?  How do we continue to support our community through local grants and projects?  How do we continue to support Rotary International, the Foundation, and Polio plus?  Also, how do we prepare for the day when programs like RYLA are able to resume?  


A friend of mine is a multiple time cancer survivor.  He always says that tough times mean that better ones are in the future.  With that in mind, my focus will be on how we maintain what we have today, and how we prepare to transition to the other side of our current paradigm.  Longmont Rotary has a great tradition and a great group of people.  Like everything else these days, things will be a little more difficult than usual, but we can and will succeed.

 

Thanks

Dave
