Zero local infections during the Chuseok holiday...Gwangju to Alleviate Social Distancing Level

추석 연휴 지역감염 0광주시 거리두기 조치 완화

With no local infections reported in Gwangju during the Chuseok holiday, Gwangju City has decided to extend the second phase of social distancing, while easing the collective ban.


Gwangju Mayor Lee Yong-sup held an online press conference on the afternoon of the 4th and said, "There have been no confirmed cases of regional infections in Gwangju from September 30 to October 4," adding, "We will ease the social distancing by downgrading the collective ban to a collective restriction on five entertainment facilities.” With the second phase of social distancing remaining until the 11th, the measures will be eased from the 5th for night life facilities that were banned from gatherings.


The measure was taken because there have been no confirmed cases at these facilities over the past week, and the Covid-19 situation is manageable within the quarantine system. The city will lift the curfew from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. for singing halls and saunas. However, the ban on direct sales promotion centers, such as door-to-door sales, will be maintained until the 11th in accordance with the government's policy. Measures such as the suspension of social welfare facilities and daycare centers such as senior citizen centers will also be maintained until Oct. 11th.
