UP10TION members Bitto and Kogyeol, who previously tested positive for COVID-19 and were in a designated facility, were released on December 13 and 14, according to instructions from health officials.
In the COVID-19 test performed during their release from isolation, Bitto tested negative and Kogyeol positive. As he is asymptomatic and non-infectious, health officials told Kogyeol that he could resume his daily activities. In the meantime, however, he will go into self-quarantine and undergo additional tests.
In addition, Kuhn, Sunyoul, Gyujin, Hwanhee and Xiao, who isolated themselves separately under the supervision of health authorities, were tested again for COVID-19 on December 14 after two weeks of self-quarantine. On December 15, Kuhn, Sunyoul, Gyujin, and Hwanhee received negative results, and Xiao tested positive.
Kuhn, Sunyoul, Gyujin and Hwanhee received confirmation that they could easily return to their daily life and activities, having completed the required time of self-quarantine and received negative test results.
During the self-quarantine period, Xiao stayed in an isolated place without coming into contact with anyone and is asymptomatic. He will undergo an additional test according to guidelines set by the health authorities.
We will again do our best to maintain hygiene to prevent COVID-19 and manage our artists.
