    Starting April 12, wearing masks indoors is mandatory and failure to do so will result in a 100,000 won fine. With this change, masks must be worn at all times regardless of the disease threat alert level.

    This government regulation not only applies to buildings, but also transportation such as buses, taxis, trains, boats, airplanes, and more.

    Additionally, if it is difficult to keep a two-meter distance outdoors in gatherings, concerts, and events, masks must be worn at all times.
