Overview: Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is urging everyone to participate in an enhanced social distancing campaign for the next 15 days (22 March – 5 April). Citizens should stay home as much as possible, while working citizens should maintain distance during breaks, and pay close attention to personal hygiene. Employers should implement measures to minimise person-to-person contact, such as work-from-home and ‘flexible hours’ systems. Those who show symptoms should not to show up at work. Workers who develop symptoms mid-day should be sent home immediately. High-risk facilities are being limited, including religious facilities, some indoor fitness facilities, and nightlife venues. Those that continue operating must strictly adhere to infection prevention measures (e.g. disinfecting, ventilation, distancing, mask wearing) set by the authorities.
