Toughest social distancing in capital area

Yugyeong Jeong

The level 4 social distancing in the capital area started on the 12th. As the corona virus re-emerges in the capital area, the government has made a decision to contain the spread. The criteria for level transition for social distancing are as follows. When the population exceeds 100,000, the weekly average number of patients per day is 4 or more, and the national average is 2,074 or more. If the population is less than 100,000, the weekly total number of patients in the region is 20 or more. This results in changes in daily life, social and economic activities. Private gatherings of three or more are prohibited after 18:00. Before 18:00, private gatherings of up to 4 people are possible, just like the level 3 measures. Assemblies other than single-person demonstrations are prohibited, and religious activities can only be conducted non-face-to-face.

Schools are shifting to full distance learning, and schools that are undergoing or scheduled to conduct final exams will have limited attendance by grade level. In workplaces, except for manufacturing, there is a time difference between commuting and commuting. Or work from home is recommended. Efforts to prevent quarantine will be made in various places, such as changing the economic census conducted by the National Statistical Office every five years to a non-face-to-face focus due to the level 4 of distancing. According to the Central Disaster and Safety Countermeasures Headquarters, the social distancing level 4 in the capital area will be implemented for two weeks from the 12th to the 25th. However, it may be extended or downgraded according to circumstances.
