Until the day before the entrance exam, a special quarantine check has been started to ensure that the test takers can take the exam safely.
Joint inspections were also conducted on restaurants and cafes, entertainment facilities with quarantine passes, karaoke rooms, and gyms.
The controversy surrounding the quarantine pass has spread to the private sector.
There are posts on the job site and job search site saying that only those who have been vaccinated as part-time students are being hired.
Even in college districts, only those who have completed the vaccination can participate in some of the autumn festival events, or some facilities have restricted use to those eligible for the vaccine pass.
The government has drawn a line that it will not block the private quarantine pass, although illegality should be considered in the case of employment exclusion.

If the crackdown begins in earnest after the 1 or 2 week probation period is over, the controversy can grow even bigger.
The operators of indoor sports facilities subject to the quarantine pass have filed a lawsuit against the government to compensate for business losses during the period of ban on gatherings, insisting on the withdrawal of the quarantine pass policy.Keywords:
