South Korea to expand two-week quarantine to all incoming travelers

travelers entering South Korea will be subjected to two weeks of mandatory quarantine starting midnight on Wednesday, April 1, Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun announced Sunday.

“The measure will also include short-term foreign visitors in order to practically block the entry for unimportant purposes, such as tourism,” Chung said during a Central Disaster Relief headquarters meeting.

Those who don’t have an address in the country will be quarantined in a government provided facility for two weeks at their own expense.

Previously, the mandatory quarantine order was for travelers coming into South Korea from the US and Europe.
