Thorough COVID-19 Countermeasures, Four Municipalities Within Fukui Prefecture

On March 21st, Coming-of-Age ceremonies were held within four municipalities in Fukui Prefecture, in Sakai City, Ono City, Katsuyama City, and Ikeda Town. The ceremonies was initially postponed due to the continuous spread of COVID-19, as well as the effects of the heavy snowstorm in January. Each venue took thorough COVID-19 countermeasures, avoiding the “Three Cs” (closed spaces, crowded places, and close contact settings), and making use of health check sheets. The new adults held feelings of gratitude for their parents and teachers in their hearts, and felt joy in reuniting with old friends. Cherishing the numerous experiences to this point, the young adults step into a new chapter of their lives, filled with ambition and determination.
