Japanese game rating board CERO to reopen tomorrow

Japanese entertainment ratings board CERO is going to be reopening this week.

The organisation has said it will be opening its doors again tomorrow (May 7th, 2020), which is when Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe said that the country's state of emergency was set to be lifted.

CERO temporarily paused ratings in April after Japan entered a state of emergency, saying that it wasn't possible to do this work from home.

The state of emergency has been extended until the end of May, however, with Japan worried about opening the country back up too early and therefore putting it at risk of a second wave of coronavirus cases. CERO is adjusting to make sure its staff can do their jobs from home given that they cannot head to the office any time soon.
