Social Distancing Protocol is a MUST
Despite the general rules and policies, the local Korean government will have full authority to regulate the number of spectators/audiences. That way, they can adjust the quarantine rules for Korean outdoor stadium reopening based on their situation.
The basic rules for Social Distancing Protocol are:
- Maintaining >1m distance.
- Wearing a mask at all times.
- Eating is prohibited.
- Shouting, chanting, and chorus are not allowed.
- Visitors who do not comply with the rules will be banned.
We are all grateful for this 2021 Korean outdoor stadium reopening news. Let us cheer quietly in our hearts.
