The spread of the new coronavirus infection (Corona 19) will strengthen the second phase of social distance measures, and from tomorrow, more than 50 guests will be fined up to 3 million won if they go ahead with an indoor wedding ceremony in the same space.
According to the government’s measures to strengthen quarantine measures announced on the 18th, groups of more than 50 people inside and more than 100 people in Seoul, Gyeonggi Province and Incheon will be banned in principle. The government included private gatherings such as weddings, clubs, clubs, decorations, first-birthday parties, picnic and family gatherings. The measure will take effect on the 19th.
If a marriage is scheduled in the Seoul metropolitan area from the 22nd to the 23rd of this weekend, more than 50 guests are expected to gather indoors, they will be banned from gathering. If the measure is violated, all participants, including those in charge of the wedding, will be fined up to 3 million won.
Sohn Young-rae, head of the strategic planning team at the Central Accident Prevention Headquarters, told reporters, “It doesn’t matter if we separate space and watch the wedding ceremony on air, but if we gather together at the ceremony and celebrate it, it would be a violation of the collective ban. If we violate the law, all participants, including the organizers, will be fined up to 3 million won.” Asked by reporters about the guidelines and arbitration on the cancellation of the wedding hall contract, he added, “We plan to seek it through consultations with related ministries, but since working-level consultations have begun urgently, it will take time for the plan to come out, and the public will have to bear the damage.”
“We will make detailed guidelines focusing on the size of the guests, and we will also look at the size of the meal,” Sohn said. “As we have recommended it when applying the second phase of social distance, we are in a situation where we have no choice but to ask for cooperation from the people in various areas, so we ask for your cooperation and understanding.”
Yoon Tae-ho, general manager of the quarantine department at the Central Accident Prevention Headquarters, said, “If we take measures in consideration of all the situations, we cannot stop Corona 19,” adding, “We think that the emergency measures of the quarantine authorities are an appeal and we emphasize once again that the purpose is to participate and resolve them together.”
