Japan on Thursday eased its coronavirus travel warning for 36 countries and areas, including the United States, Britain, Canada and Hong Kong, meaning it will no longer ask citizens to avoid nonessential trips to the areas.

The Foreign Ministry lowered its travel advisories for those countries, which also include Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore and Malaysia, from Level 2 on its four-point scale to Level 1, which advises Japanese nationals traveling to those regions to “stay fully alert.”
