Message From Volunteer Member Leaders- State-of-Emergency Extension

August 5, 2021

Dear Member,

Following the Japanese government’s announcement last week of an extension to the current state of emergency, alcohol service at bars and restaurants at both the Azabudai and Nihonbashi clubhouses will continue to be unavailable through August 31.
The Club’s operating hours will remain the same during this period. As usual, you’re encouraged to check the Club website for the most up-to-date information on events and programs.

With Tokyo and other areas experiencing a new wave of Covid-19 cases, please be sure to follow the Club’s safety guidelines when visiting.
If you travel overseas this summer, you are asked to not visit the Club for a quarantine period of 14 days following your return.

On a more positive note, the Club’s vaccination center for Minato Ward is into its second month of operations, with many Members and staff having been vaccinated.
The ongoing success of this community initiative is a testament to the hard work and innovation of so many Members—led by Sam Rogan, the Club’s first vice president—who volunteered their time and expertise.

Whether you are in Japan or abroad, have a relaxing—and safe—summer.

Michael Benner
Representative Governor
Tokyo American Club
