All of the Lovelyz members and their staff have been identified as having been exposed to a primary carrier, and are currently in self-quarantine after undergoing testing on June 22.
Woollim Entertainment plans on putting the health and safety of our artists and staff as our utmost priority, and will take all measures necessary per the disease prevention department's guidance once additional test results are returned.
We ask for your understanding as we have inevitably caused public concern, and we promise to continue with our best efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
