I would hate to be kyronstavic's child. Personally, I would rather be overly cautious when it comes to the safety of children, but of course the idea of drawing squares on the playground is ridiculous. On the other hand, disinfecting a building where the virus is very likely to be is a great precaution.

@bugle boy

There are restrictions of course but the ones regarding seeking employment have been lifted. Additionally those that don't meet these requirements probably don't need the support.

I would just like everyone to know that there is rent relief for individuals. The program is the Housing Security Benefits program 住居確保給付金. It used to be only for people who lost their jobs but it has been expanded to cover everyone who needs it during the pandemic. Additionally, there is no longer a requirement to sign up with Hello Work to receive these benefits. They can cover rent for up to 9 months in total if needed.

Furthermore, those who are freelancers, subcontractors or otherwise self employed you can apply for the 1 million yen payout program for sole proprietors. I hope that no one has to worry about things like not paying the rent or having food on the table during these trying times. Stay safe, stay healthy, stay home.
