One of the company’s employees went to the hospital after experiencing symptoms of a cold, and was tested for COVID-19 on April 8. On the morning of April 9, the test was confirmed to be positive.
We immediately informed everyone at the company about the positive test. All the employees, including our artist BamBam, who crossed paths with the infected employee were pre-emptively tested for COVID-19, and all were confirmed negative on April 10.
In accordance with the epidemiological survey conducted by the disease control authorities, employees who have been classified as close contacts of the confirmed case, including BamBam, have entered self-quarantine.
To ensure our artist’s safety, we have canceled all of his scheduled activities, and we will faithfully comply with all future directions from the authorities.
We apologize for causing his fans concern. As a company, we will do our best to ensure the health and safety of our artists.
