Efforts in prevention of spread of COVID-19 infection
Continuing from last season, original guidelines in infection prevention have been laid out and are being carried out. In addition, starting from this season, antigen examinations are being carried on operation staff. Especially to staff working in areas which have a high percentage of becoming crowded, such as backstage and camera seating, antigen examinations are carried out daily, thereby strengthening countermeasures. We are operating RFWT with the motto of further safety/security.
