The Wall Street Journal reports that after two months of intensive lockdown measures, South Korea is ready to reopen. The country also has a thorough plan for the delicate transition.

This includes:

  • Everyone in offices wearing masks.
  • During meals diners will sit next to each other or in a zigzag pattern, but not directly across from each other.
  • Hotel rooms will be ventilated for 15 minutes after people check out.
  • Visitors at zoos and aquariums must stand six feet apart.
  • Shouting, hugging, and high fives will be discouraged at sporting events.
  • At weddings or funerals people must stay three feet apart, and a “prevention officer” must be appointed by the venue to take temperatures and monitor symptoms like coughing.
