DESPITE THE SURGE IN CASES social distancing measures will be temporarily eased starting Friday as the country observes a major 5-day holiday Chuseok especially in regions currently under level 4 social distancing measures.
From this Friday for a week, families can gather in groups of up to 8 people, as long as four are fully vaccinated.
The relaxed measure will allow families to celebrate the holiday who otherwise would have been unable to meet their relatives.
Up to four on-vaccinated family members are also allowed to get together.
But do keep in mind that gatherings have to be held at a private household, and not at public places such as restaurants and cafes.
