SEVENTEEN’s Dino has tested positive for COVID-19.
On August 17, PLEDIS Entertainment released an official statement to Weverse to announce the news. He tested positive in Los Angeles and he’s now self-quarantining.
Since the group is currently on the North American leg of their world tour, he will have to skip some of those as well as their upcoming appearance on the late-night talk show “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on August 18.
Here is the agency’s statement:
This is PLEDIS Entertainment.
We would like to provide you with information on SEVENTEEN member Dino being diagnosed with COVID-19, as well as adjustments in his activities.
Dino took a PCR test in Los Angeles on August 16 (PT) and was confirmed with COVID-19. He is currently experiencing a mild sore throat and has been under self-quarantine and administering self-treatment, away from the other members.
All SEVENTEEN members other than Dino took PCR tests and the results came back as negative.
In this regard, the Los Angeles concert scheduled on Wednesday, August 17 (PT), “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” to be aired on Thursday, August 18 (PT), and the Houston concert scheduled on Saturday, August 20 (PT) will proceed as planned with 12 members except Dino who will thoroughly comply with the guidelines of the health authorities in the United States.
