Our Response to COVID-19

In order to hold events in safety and peace of mind, PACIFICO Yokohama has taken steps through collaboration with event organizers and relevant parties.

Our COVID-19 Policy

We have taken the following steps to preserve the safety of all customers.

Venue Disinfection

To ensure the safety of customers, we have alcohol hand sanitizers at the entrance to each facility. We also disinfect high-touch areas after the use of each day.
◆Areas where alcohol sanitizer is available
- Entrance to each facility
- Every toilet room for seat disinfection
◆Main areas to disinfect
- Microphones, podium, podium for MC, etc.
- Door knobs/door handles, handrails, etc.

Ventilation in Venue

Air conditioning and ventilation systems are constantly working to bring in fresh air.

Preventing Closed Space

To avoid situations where many people gather in a poorly-ventilated crowded closed space, the smoking areas in venue are closed for the time being.

Preventing Splashes



 

We offer equipment to prevent the spread (partitions for splash protection, etc.). Hand dryers in restrooms are unavailable, so please be sure to bring a handkerchief, etc.

Ensuring Social Distancing



 

We recommend a socially-distanced layout. Seats in resting areas such as foyer and concourse are placed with social distancing.

Catering Services (Supplied by the Designated Caterers)

The caterers will propose the catering services of mitigating the risk of “contact infection” and “droplet infection.”

Workplace Health and Safety

Our staff are instructed to wear masks and check their daily physical condition (check temperature every morning, etc.).

Request to Our Customers

We kindly ask our customers to take the following measures.

Preventing the Spread of Infection

 Wash and disinfect your hands, wear masks, and observe coughing/sneezing etiquette in our facility. In addition, hand driers in the washrooms at our facilities are currently out of operation, so please be sure to bring a handkerchief, etc.

Checking Health Condition

If you are not feeling well, please visit another time. Customers who have a fever or other symptoms will be asked to refrain from entering.

Installing COVID-19 Contact-Confirming Application

Consider the use of COVID-19 Contact-Confirming Application (COCOA) developed by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, and give prior notice in case it will be used.

〈COVID-19 Contact-Confirming Application〉
COCOA is an application using the short-range communication function (Bluetooth) on smartphones, upon user approval, to receive notification about the possibility of contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19, while ensuring anonymity for privacy.

Request to Event Organizers

Event organizers are requested to take thorough the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare's "new lifestyle" with the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) as well as various industry guidelines measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Discussion with PACIFICO Yokohama

Prior to an event, we have a briefing with an event organizer and relevant parties to ensure a safe environment for customers.

Considering Event Details

◆Plan event avoiding 3Cs (closed spaces, crowded places, close-contact setting)
◆Consider seating arrangements and layouts ensuring social distancing

- For venues with fixed seats, such as the National Convention Hall of Yokohama, and the Main Hall of the Conference Center will implement so-called “chequerboard” seating arrangement with an empty seat in front, back, and on each side of each seat
- For venues with flat floors, such as the Conference Center, Annex Hall, and North, the maximum number of seats will be about 50% of the basic layout, maintaining a space of 2meters (minimum 1meter) between seats
- The number of visitors allowed to enter the Exhibition Hall at one time will depend on the area used

◆Adapt the registration process and set-up to avoid queue onsite
◆Conduct temperature checks or ask attendees to report temperature before entering venue
◆Collect attendees’ contact information when they register for the event

Preventing Spread among Event Organizers' Staff

◆Provide staff with face masks, sanitizers, etc.
◆Ensure that staff wear masks and wash and disinfect their hands and fingers
◆Check staff’s daily physical condition (check temperature every morning, etc.)

Our Response to Suspected Case

Emergency Response

We have clearly defined how to respond to and report a suspected case of infection. We will respond quickly in cooperation with Health and Welfare Center of the ward office of City of Yokohama.

Establishing Designated Isolation Rooms

We have set up designated isolation rooms in addition to the permanent first-aid rooms.
