ATEEZ’s San Tests Positive For COVID-19 + Is Currently Asymptomatic
On July 9, KQ Entertainment announced that ATEEZ’s San had tested positive for COVID-19, although he is currently asymptomatic.
The agency’s statement reads:
Hello, this is KQ Entertaiment.
This is to inform you that on the afternoon of July 9, ATEEZ’s San was notified that he was confirmed to have asymptomatic COVID-19.
On July 8, the agency had stated the ATEEZ members had all tested negative and were not classified as close contacts, and therefore would resume their scheduled activities.
Ahead of his scheduled work event that day, Yunho voluntarily decided to get another PCR test for the safety of everyone involved. He received a negative result and attended his event as planned.
The other members also decided to get another PCR test for their future scheduled activities, and San was notified that he was positive for asymptomatic COVID-19. Hongjoong, Seonghwa, Yunho, Yeosang, Wooyoung, and Jongho all received negative results.
From this moment, ATEEZ will suspend all their scheduled activities. All the members and their staff will actively participate with the instructions and procedures given by the disease control authorities.
We apologize once again for causing fans concern. As an agency, we will do our best for San’s quick recovery.
ATEEZ had been in voluntary self-quarantine for the past few days after an external staff member who worked with them on an event tested positive for COVID-19. The group had planned to resume their activities today after their initial test results showed them to be negative.
We wish San a speedy recovery.
