[Notice] Jeju governor declares war on COVID-19 as nation raises ‘red’ alert

Governor Won Heeryong recently announced that the province will ramp up efforts in coordination with national COVID-19 prevention plans to help keep Jeju residents and visitors safe.

This includes the temporary closure of public museums, athletic grounds, libraries, and increased disinfection measures in public places. 

Some 650 local bus stops are being regularly disinfected, and at main terminal stops, hand sanitizer is provided. Hand sanitizer and new public service announcements are being provided on heavily used bus routes.

There will also be local efforts to secure additional medical personnel, items, and facilities, such as quarantine areas, quarantine beds, epidemiological investigators, etc., and a request for an additional 200,000 masks for use on the island.

As of Feb. 26, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases on Jeju Island remains at two. On the mainland, though, the number of confirmed cases has risen to 1,146 in total (up 169 from Tuesday). Eleven deaths have been reported.
