On 20 September 2020, Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun extended current countrywide Level 2 restrictions through at least 27 September in a continued effort to reduce the number of new COVID-19 infections. Under the restrictions, strict social distancing and face mask mandates will remain in effect. Indoor gatherings are limited to no more than 50 people, while those occurring outdoors are allowed no more than 100 people; tighter restrictions on social gatherings are expected to be announced for the upcoming Chuseok holiday from 30 September-2 October. Establishments deemed high risk for COVID-19 transmission — such as bars, cultural centers, museums, nightclubs and other public gathering venues — remain closed.
