K-pop group suspends their activities again.
To the reassurance of his fans, ATEEZ’s San is asymptomatic. ATEEZ’s San was detected with COVID-19 and the group once again paralyzes their schedule, KQ Entertainment reported. The other six members of the boyband have negative results in their discard tests.
The K-pop group was in voluntary quarantine since July 6 due to the contagion of a staff member. That day they underwent tests with negative initial results and were classified as not close contacts by the tracking system, so they planned to resume activities as of Friday the 9th.
However, on Friday night (in South Korea) KQ Entertainment detailed that Choi San had just been notified of his COVID-19 diagnosis after passing a new PCR test. Fortunately, the 21-year-old artist has no symptoms.
The representatives of ATEEZ confirm that the group will be in quarantine for the time indicated by the health protocol in their country. The announcement reached fans within hours of starting to celebrate San’s birthday (July 10). Now, the greetings include wishes for a speedy recovery and rest for the singer.

Translation of the agency report:
“On Thursday the 8th, the agency had stated that the ATEEZ members had negative results in their test and were not classified as close contacts. Therefore, they were authorized to resume their agenda.
Before attending his activity scheduled for that day, Yunho voluntarily decided to take another PCR test for safety. His result was negative and he attended his recording as scheduled.
The other members also chose to take another PCR for their activities and San was notified that he had asymptomatic COVID-19. Hongjoong, Seonghwa, Yunho, Yeosang, Wooyoung, and Jongho are negative.
From this moment, ATEEZ will suspend all its activities. The members and their staff will actively follow the directions and procedures of the disease control authorities.
We apologize for the concern caused to the fans and we will do our best to ensure San’s speedy recovery.”
