Nearly 60% in Japan unaware of relaxed COVID-19 mask guidelines

Discussion Questions

  1. Were you aware of the relaxed COVID-19 mask guidelines that were issued in May? If so, did you adjust your mask wearing habits accordingly, or did you continue the same as before? If you were not aware before, what is your response now to finding out about the relaxed guidelines?
  2. Do you think the Japanese government needs to be clearer about its mask wearing guidelines? How do you think they can be clearer?
  3. When do you usually wear a mask and when do you refrain from wearing a mask?
  4. Do you think Japan’s mask wearing guidelines should be relaxed further? What do you think about the fact that many other countries are no longer requiring masks?
  5. Would you be in favor of dropping mask wearing completely or do you think there are still situations where it should be required? Would you continue to wear masks even if they weren’t required? Why or why not?
  6. Even if the government relaxes the guidelines further, do you think mask wearing culture will still be very strong in Japan for the foreseeable future? Why or why not?
