Starting July 19, for two weeks, personal gatherings are limited to four people in regional areas.

On July 18, the Central Disaster Relief Safety Headquarters announced that personal gatherings will be limited to four people regardless of social distancing levels in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease during the summer vacation season.

However, there are exceptions to regions with social distancing levels of 1 or 2. Gatherings of more than four people are allowed for close relatives, pre-marriage gatherings, birthday celebrations for one-year-olds, and sporting events with a minimum required number of people. Depending on the situation in each region, these exceptions are subject to change.

On the other hand, due to a spike in coronavirus cases from summer vacation travelers, social distancing in Gangneung was raised to level four for one week starting July 19. Social distancing in Jeju Island was also raised to level three on the same date.
