Tokyo Metropolitan Government shifted businesses to Step 2 on Monday, 1 June 2020.
Step 2 allows more businesses to reopen and to operate longer hours.
Gym finally opened on Monday, 1 June 2020; I went on Tuesday, 2 June 2020 after two months.
Gym is also taking counter measures to COVID.
There is a plastic sheet at the reception counter to protect staffs from spread of COVID.
Trainers and trainees need to wear a mask while exercise.
Wipe an equipment with sanitizer after every use.
Placed equipment with enough gap.
Stops providing stone bath service for now.
It’s nice to get a professional guide for exercise.
Then as usual, I visited 100 Yen Shop Can Do for shopping.
I usually buy consumable goods there and my stock became low after two months.
I happily bought 21 products there including masks and a wet tissue.
I was hoping to relax on businesses more by shifting to Step 3.
However, I received a flash news earlier on Tuesday, 2 June 2020 that Tokyo recorded 34 new cases on the day which indicates a peek.
Tokyo Metropolitan Government announced Tokyo Alert which means the State of Emergency for Tokyo; but didn’t request for closing businesses.
The economy needs to move now; therefore, it remained Step 2 for Business.
However, with Tokyo Alert, people need to be more careful and corporate to voluntarily Stay Home to manage COVID if we want businesses to stay operating.
The State of Emergency, Tokyo Alert, Stay Home, Social Distancing, Step 1, 2 & 3 for Business, the Second Wave, Masks, Sanitizer, etc., these vocabularies remind me we are living in New Normal Society.
Japanese government lifted the State of Emergency on 26 May 2020.
Businesses started to reopen.
I had my spa; however, there are new routines to be added such as taking body temperature at the entrance, beauticians wearing mask and plastic face shield and during my hair treatment, I continue wearing my mask.
Italian dinner at IL FIGO INGORDO Roppongi.
The restaurant has taken away tables to half to provide enough distance between tables.
Furthermore, they operate by less staffs (2 floor staffs) and chefs (3 chefs).
Now Tokyo Metropolitan Government allows restaurants to operate till later hours (closing 10 pm from 9 pm).
I haven’t had wine for more than a month..?
It tasted so smooth and so goood!
It surely enhanced food.
I also had dessert wine and desserts: vanilla and blueberry ice cream.
Today we need to adopt new normal to enjoy our daily life.
Businesses are taking measures against COVID and I respect them to provide us safety and their considerations and efforts.
