U.S. Forces Japan will lift COVID-19 restrictions on activities outside bases in Japan at the end of this month as scheduled, the Foreign Ministry said Friday.

The restrictive measures, such as limiting the movement of U.S. military personnel outside military facilities to essential activities and a curfew from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., will end Monday, but the obligation to wear a mask on and off base will be maintained, according to the ministry.
