S. Korea extends level 2 social distancing for a week till September 27

Limiting indoor gatherings to less than 50 and outdoor to below 100, South Korea on September 20 extended level 2 social distancing for a week until September 27.

Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun said that ahead of the Chuseok holiday when people traditionally reunite with families, the level 2 restrictions need to be kept as “cases with untraceable origins are steadily increasing and fewer tests being carried out on weekends means we should be on high alert”.

As per the restrictions, so-called risk-prone establishments, such as cram schools with more than 300 students, clubs, buffets and karaoke rooms, will be shut down for another week while the government on the other hand, is urging people to stay indoors, especially the elderly ones who are more vulnerable to catching the infections.
