For the prevention of the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic, it is important to reduce the risk of infection in places where many people gather. One of the effective measures is telework, in which workers can avoid the rush hour and crowds and make it possible to work from home.

The Novel Coronavirus Infectious Disease Control Headquarters decided a basic policy for countermeasures against the novel coronavirus pandemic on February 25, 2020. From the viewpoint of reducing the chances of contact with patients and infected people based on this basic policy, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC) wishes to ask that you actively use telework as much as possible.
