An Yu Jin Tests Positive For COVID-19
A week after her labelmate Jang Won Young was diagnosed with COVID-19, An Yu Jin has also tested positive for the virus.
Last week, both An Yu Jin and Jang Won Young underwent testing for COVID-19 after learning that they had crossed paths with a staff member who later tested positive for the virus. While Jang Won Young’s test results came back positive, An Yu Jin tested negative at the time, though she still went into self-quarantine as a precautionary measure.
On September 4, Starship Entertainment announced that while in self-quarantine, An Yu Jin had tested positive for COVID-19 after developing a sore throat and fever.
The agency’s full statement is as follows:
Hello, this is Starship Entertainment.
While in self-quarantine, our artist An Yu Jin has tested positive for COVID-19.
On August 28, An Yu Jin underwent PCR testing after a non-company staff member with whom she had crossed paths tested positive for COVID-19. On the morning of August 29, her test results came back negative, but because health authorities classified her as a close contact of the COVID-19 patient, she went into self-quarantine.
During her self-quarantine, An Yu Jin voluntarily used self-testing kits to test herself, and while closely monitoring her health, she began to show symptoms of a sore throat and fever. After notifying public health authorities, she underwent PCR testing, and on the morning of September 4, her test results came back positive.
She is currently following the instructions of health authorities and taking all necessary measures.
We apologize for giving many people cause for concern. Our agency will adhere to health authorities’ guidelines and do our utmost to help our artist recover quickly.
Wishing both An Yu Jin and Jang Won Young a speedy recovery!
