Overview: Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advised that anyone who has attended a service at the Church (related to an existing case) or visited the hospital in February should stay home and avoid unnecessary outdoor activities. If they have fever or respiratory symptoms, they should first get a consultation with KCDC Call Center(1339) or a triage health center nearby before going to health care facilities. According to their recommendation, anyone suspected to have been exposed to infected clusters should get tested immediately. Other cases should follow their physician’s guidance when it comes to getting tested for COVID-19.
