    The city of Seoul is conducting thorough disinfections while Research Institutes of Public Health and Environment are conducting complete inspections of multiuse facilities and those that have been visited by confirmed patients. The city is attaching CLEAN ZONE (disinfection-guaranteed facilities) stickers on such facilities and installing banners on nearby streets in efforts to recover the withering economy and resolve the immeasurable anxiety surrounding the matter.

    As of now, the names of the businesses visited and the paths of movement taken by confirmed patients have been released to the public to address the infection. It is reasonable to take precautions to prevent the spread of the infection. However, even after the period of quarantine has passed post-disinfection, the stigma is not disappearing. In order to solve this problem, the city of Seoul has launched the “CLEAN ZONE” certification. With this measure, stores that are proven to be safe, even if it was visited by a confirmed patient, can be marked with a sticker. Additionally, the city plants to fully support stores that have temporarily closed down due to visits by confirmed patients.

    14 samples from the air and about 100 surface contact samples from multiuse facilities and those that have been visited by confirmed patients are checked for the virus. “CLEAN ZONE” stickers are placed on those facilities that have been thoroughly disinfected, and the facilities displaying this sticker can be used worry-free.
