Gwangju strengthens COVID-19 prevention rules

광주시거리두기 1단계 유지하되 오늘부터 방역수칙 대폭 강화

Gwangju strengthens COVID-19 prevention rules


Gwangju City decided to maintain its 1st level of Social Distancing. However, disinfection measures have been intensified greatly starting today. Our Hyungjin Ro reports.


The Gwangju Metropolitan Government decided to maintain its social distancing level but has strengthened the prevention rules instead. Gwangju Mayor Lee Yong-seob said in a briefing session that the City will drastically toughen such rules starting today.


Although the criteria for upgrading the social distancing level has not yet been met, the decision was made as the College Entrance Exam is only 18 days away, and also based on the serious situation of virus infections in multi-use facilities such as hospitals, nightlife venues, and universities.


Under the new quarantine rules, dancing and moving between seats are prohibited at nightlife facilities, while door-to-door sales businesses will not be able to operate after 9 p.m.


In all restaurants and cafes over 50 square meters, it is mandatory to keep quarantine rules such as wearing masks, managing the list of visitors, and regular disinfection and ventilation.


Food intake is also prohibited at singing halls, indoor standing performance halls, indoor sports facilities, and religious facilities.


All rallies, demonstrations, large-scale concerts, festivals and academic events with more than 500 people will be banned as well. The city government also expanded the range of facilities for mandatory mask wearing. Outdoor sports stadiums and religious facilities have also been included on the list.
