Coronavirus travel incident in Japan gets US family barred from military bases for 10 years

Recommended Posts

TOKYO — An American family that drew rebuke from Japan’s defense minister after skirting coronavirus restrictions in July has been barred from Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, and all U.S. military installations, for 10 years, according to Marine statements.

The family of four arrived July 12 at Haneda International Airport in central Tokyo and the following day boarded a commercial flight for Kintaikyo Airport, which shares a runway with MCAS Iwakuni, according to a news release by the air station Friday. Tests by Japanese authorities at Haneda later showed three of the family members were infected with the coronavirus. https://www.stripes.com/news/coronavirus-travel-incident-in-japan-gets-us-family-barred-from-military-bases-for-10-years-1.643086
