All elementary and junior high schools were switched to remote classes, and diagnostic tests were conducted on 300 residents who had contact with confirmed patients.
In response to concerns about further infection by residents who contacted the confirmed case, Yeongwol-gun temporarily closed all public facilities where people gather, such as gymnasiums and cultural facilities in the area.
Due to the small number of residents, even rural villages that do not have more face-to-face contact than in large cities have become unsafe.
In Hongcheon, Gangwon-do, 10 residents, including those in their 60s, who participated in the public forest care project were infected.
Hongcheon-gun decided to skip step 1.5 of social distancing and immediately implement step 2.
A red light was lit on quarantine to prevent a nationwide third pandemic, as the group infection started at a specific meeting or activity spread to other neighboring municipalities, and again, leading to’n-th infection’.
