The first day when the mandatory wearing of indoor masks was lifted. An awkward yet comfortable atmosphere was created.
The Korea Volleyball Federation (KOVO) announced on the 27th that it will be recommended to wear indoor masks for spectators entering the stadium from the 31st according to the government’s quarantine policy for the new coronavirus infection (Corona 19).
It has been 27 months since the mandatory mask-wearing measure introduced in October 2020 to prevent COVID-19. 안전놀이터
On the 31st, KGC Ginseng Corporation and Korea Expressway Corporation’s 2022-2023 V-League Round 5 first match was held at Daejeon Chungmu Gymnasium, and the fans who visited the stadium were different. There were fans who took off their masks, but most fans wore them.
An official from KGC Ginseng Corporation said, “We do not restrain people even if they do not wear a mask, but we plan to broadcast on-site from time to time as it is recommended to wear a mask in a crowded space.” Supporters, game recorders and safety personnel wore masks.
The coaches who go to the game are also awkward. Korea Expressway Corporation director Kim Jong-min entered the interview room wearing a mask. Director Kim laughed, saying, “I have to cover it up because it’s ugly.” On this day, coach Kim played the game with his mask lightly hanging over his chin.
Koh Hee-jin, director of KGC Ginseng Gongga, took off her mask. Director Goh, who was the Samsung Fire & Marine Manager for men, was not free from’Corona 19’ in the last 2020-2021 season, 2021-2022 season, and this season, took off his mask for the first time after becoming a command tower.
Director Ko said, “I take it off for the first time after becoming a coach. It’s awkward, but it’s comfortable,” he laughed, saying, “I think I need to be careful about the shape of my mouth.”
