<Anchor> The

quarantine pass will disappear from tomorrow, March 1.

In the meantime, when I went to a restaurant or cafe, I used a QR code to verify that I was vaccinated, but now I don't have to do that.

At the same time, the government decided not to introduce the quarantine pass for teenagers, which was going to start in April.

We have actually entered the process of lifting the quarantine, leaving only the distance.

Today (28th), the first news, reporter Park Soo-jin, will tell you.


From 00:00 tomorrow, you do not need to authenticate this QR code at restaurants or cafes.

In addition to restaurants and cafes, the quarantine pass will be suspended at all multi-use facilities such as karaoke rooms and entertainment facilities, as well as facilities vulnerable to infection.

Weddings and funerals can also accommodate up to 299 people, whether or not they are vaccinated.

Citizens' reactions was mixed.

/Citizen: Even if you get a vaccine, you are getting a breakthrough infection, and I think it would be better to release the quarantine pass and enjoy a more free life.]

I don't know how many people didn't get the vaccine and I'm a little worried.] The

self-employed people welcomed it, but they didn't think it would help much to increase sales.

[Self-Employed / Self-Employed: Distance and business hours (restrictions) rather than quarantine passes actually have a slight impact on sales, so maybe the quarantine pass will not have a big impact on sales (I think.)]

February to March, The youth quarantine pass, which was postponed twice to April, was also virtually withdrawn.

Public health centers and screening clinics will stop issuing negative certificates from tomorrow.

If a negative confirmation letter is required, a negative confirmation statement must be obtained from a private medical institution.

The quarantine authorities said that the quarantine pass may be resumed depending on the new mutant virus or vaccination status.

However, if this is not the case, it means that the quarantine pass will not be revived, so it is interpreted as taking steps to alleviate the quarantine.

It means that only distance is left as a means of quarantine, but the government said, "We plan to collect opinions on whether there are additional areas to alleviate."
