1 case was confirmed from a middle school in Buk-gu, Daegu City. Investigation on the source of infection and screening testing for contacts is underway.

 

Despite the stronger measures in place until 14 June, chains of infection continue to spread in the Seoul Metropolitan Region.

 

  - In light of the current situation, Korea’s central and local governments have decided to extend the current measure (including gathering ban on high-risk facilities, suspension of operation of public facilities, etc.) until the situation in the Seoul Metropolitan Region improves.

 

  - The goal will be to stabilize the situation to a risk level prior to the Social Distancing campaign, including daily new case count below 10.

 

  - Measures such as gathering ban on after-school private academies, PC cafes, and high-risk facilities, suspension of operation of public facilities, limiting non-essential public events, and stronger infection prevention management will continue to be enforced.

 

  - Relevant ministries and municipalities together will strengthen enforcement of the rules in such facilities. One strike out policy will be applied to any significant violation.

 

With continued COVID-19 cluster transmissions occurring rapidly in the Seoul Metropolitan Region, KCDC urged people to take extra precautions during the weekend.

 

  - Recent major clusters have occurred in underground areas or other poorly ventilated enclosed spaces where respiratory droplet producing activities such as singing, eating, or sporting activities took place. Preventive measures like mask wearing and hand hygiene was not followed well.

 

  - Religious facilities are advised to cancel or postpone small group meetings that involve conversations, singing, or eating together, or switch them to non-face-to-face methods.

 

  - If on-site worship service is held, such facilities need to reduce the number of participants to ensure that participants keep proper distance from each other, check participants for fever and other symptoms, ensure hand washing and mask wearing, and make sure not to provide meals or engage in activities that release respiratory droplets in the air (such as singing, chanting, and shouting).

 

With the rise in the number of elderly cases, the number of patients with severe symptoms is also increasing. The elderly need to take particular precautions.

 

  - People who are 65 years old or older are advised not to visit enclosed spaces without windows or that are poorly ventilated.

 

  - If such an occasion is unavoidable, activities such as eating and singing should be refrained. Masks should be worn and frequent hand washing or sanitizing should be practiced.

 

  - KCDC advises elderly people to take good care of any chronic medical conditions they have. They are encouraged to utilize various means of consulting with healthcare professional regularly, including over-the-phone consultations. When visiting a clinic or hospital, a facemask should be worn.

 

  - Regular exercise is also important, including light home exercises and stretching as well as taking a walk regularly in places and times with less foot traffic outside.

 

As for high-risk community facilities such as convalescent hospitals, psychiatric hospitals, and long-term care facilities, if a resident or a worker shows any suspected symptoms such as respiratory symptoms or fever, the resident or worker should be tested immediately.

 

  - As a measure to prevent infections spreading to such facilities, 50% of the cost of testing for new inpatients or residents or care facilities is covered by the National Health Insurance. Active testing is encouraged for such facilities/people.

 

  - People who work at such facilities should not go to work if they have COVID-19 suspected symptoms, avoid public venues such as nightclubs, bars, singing rooms, and PC cafes, and refrain from attending social gatherings such as club meetings and religious small group gatherings.

 

Since COVID-19 outbreak can occur from any venue under crowded, confined, and close-contact environment, everyone is advised to avoid club meetings, religious small group meetings, and other gatherings taking place in poorly ventilated enclosed areas and to practice hand washing, mask wearing, and physical distancing (2 meters) in daily life.
