social distance between Seoul and Gyeonggi Province has been elevated to 1.5 levels since the day (19th).
On the first Friday night after the upgrade, our coverage team looked around downtown Seoul, and there were quite a few cases where basic quarantine rules were not well observed.

stores with a facility area of more than 50 square meters, there were cases where it was difficult to keep a distance of more than 1m between tables or install partitions.

From tomorrow, Seoul plans to reinforce quarantine rules so that only half of all tables can be seated in general restaurants and cafes.
