ATEEZ San has been diagnosed with COVID-19!
The surprising news comes shortly after KQ Entertainment revealed that all of ATEEZ members have tested negative for the virus after an external staff member tested positive, they had not been classified as close contact and resumed their scheduled activities.
However, on July 9, the agency returned with a new statement to reveal that San has now tested positive on the afternoon of July 9 and is currently asymptomatic.
The way they found out he’s tested positive was through member Yunho who decided to get another PCR test voluntarily for the safety of everyone involved. He received negative results and attended his schedule, the members decided to get another test too for their future activities and San was notified he tested positive. Hongjoong, Seonghwa, Yunho, Yeosang, Wooyoung, and Jongho all received negative results.
As a result, all of the ATEEZ members will be halting activities for the time being and will proceed according to the instructions given by the health authorities.
We wish San a speedy recovery.
