SEOUL: South Korea will maintain social-distancing rules in the greater Seoul area at the current level while adding restrictions to more venues, and tighten measures outside the capital region.

The government will impose stricter rules on certain facilities and activities that are deemed “dangerous,” such as public baths and gyms in the greater Seoul area, Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun said at a news conference on Sunday.

The current level 2 restrictions in the Seoul metropolitan area forbid gatherings in high-risk facilities such as night clubs and karaoke bars, and prohibits restaurants from serving customers after 9 p.m. On top of level 2 measures, businesses such as saunas and gyms that involve heavy exercise, as well as those providing private music lessons will be halted.
