In Osaka Prefecture, to ensure you can visit safely, businesses that self-report compliance with the COVID-19 control guidelines for their respective business types are issued a COVID-19 safety sticker.

Eateries with this sticker ensure the safety of customers and staff by avoiding the 3 Cs (closed spaces, crowded places and close-contact settings), using general hygiene practices like handwashing, and maintaining physical distance between people.
