Until October 31, areas at level 4 social distancing can have private gatherings of up to eight people including four fully vaccinated members. Areas at level 3 can have up to ten people including six fully vaccinated members. Currently, the Seoul metropolitan area is at level 4 and regional areas are at level 3 (may differ by city).

To reduce confusion, previous restrictions based on times have been fully removed and current restrictions will apply to all applicable facilities.

Additionally, closing times for certain facilities have changed as well. Restaurants and cafes in level 3 areas; study rooms, study cafes, concert halls, and movie theaters in level 4 areas can now operate until midnight, a two-hour extension from previous restrictions.

For more information, refer to the COVID-19 website, available in Korean, English, and Chinese.
