"This is MNH Entertainment.
We are releasing an additional statement pertaining to the exact routes of Chung Ha's infection to the virus.

Chung Ha did not receive separate testing guidelines from the quarantine authorities but voluntarily decided to get testing since she has many future activities scheduled and just as mentioned earlier, she tested positive.
After Chung Ha's news of testing positive, there is much speculative information that has not been confirmed being spread about her. We request everyone to refrain from spreading false information as we are currently cooperating with the quarantine authorities as to how she was infected. We will release the exact route of Chung Ha's infection after further investigation.
We apologize for causing concern once again."
