Fuji, Shizuoka – We would like to offer our deepest sympathies, both to all those who have lost their lives to the novel coronavirus disease, and to infected persons, their families, and related parties. We would also like to express our sincere gratitude to all those involved in preventing the spread of the disease, such as healthcare workers.

At JATCO, we will continue to work to provide maximum consideration to the health and safety of all parties, such as by having our office employees around the country work from home, minimizing necessary commuting and travel, enforcing hand washing and coughing etiquette, and thoroughly conducting daily health checks for each employee, in order to help prevent the spread of the disease.
