Up to 4,000 people allowed to attend concerts, 30-50% capacity allowed at sports events Updated: 2021-06-14 16:36:03 KST

More people in South Korea will be able to enjoy sports events and performances starting from Monday.
For K-pop and other music concerts, audiences of up to four-thousand people are allowed for both indoor and outdoor events.
Previously, the limit was just 99 people.
People will, however, have to keep their masks on and stick to their designated seat, and they are not allowed to eat or shout.
Similar changes have also been implemented for sports events.
In the capital region, where level two distancing measures are being enforced, up to 30 percent of a venue's capacity will be allowed at events like soccer and baseball.
That's three times more than the current 10 percent.
And outside the capital area, the capacity limit has gone up from 30 percent to 50 percent.
Meanwhile, more middle school students in the Seoul area will come back to classrooms as the school capacity limits are increased to two-thirds starting Monday.
It had previously been one-third of capacity.
And vocational schools, which have hands-on lessons like auto repair, can resume in-person classes.
This comes as the Education Ministry is taking a step toward full attendance at all levels starting from the next semester in August.
