Feb. 20, by when all distancing curbs will be scrapped except for mask-wearing mandates, a government health panel said.

I thought in 2022 fully vaccinated folk would no longer be forced to wear a mask. I thought wrong.

Maybe 2023?

What! Even outdoors in uncrowded areas? Is it going to be a blanket rule, or just indoors and crowded outdoor areas?

Hereís the article:

https://news.yahoo.com/south-korea-plots-course-scrapping-104907948.html

Things will be back to normal February 20th, four months from now, is the plan. Back to normal except the mask mandates will stay in place. Hopefully there wonít be any more big variants like Delta Plus spreading so much, or feared so much, that the timeline is further delayed.

Not a lot of detail it the link but in other parts of the world the lessening of restrictions has been tied to vaccination rates rather than a specific date. In our state the plan is to remove the mask mandate when 90% of the population over 12 years old are fully vaccinated. Given Korea is at a little under 72% now  https://covidvax.live/location/kor, you wouldn't expect it to take another year, unless they're waiting for approval of vaccines for kids under 12 and much higher levels of vaccination among the whole population.

And what if it never gets above 90% because of conspiracy theorists? Then everyone keeps having to wear a mask outside of their home forever regardless of vaccination status?

I'd imagine, they'll try a combination of carrot and stick. So far the only carrot they've used is a sausage sizzle and a million dollar lottery with each vaccination. I'd imagine that'll be increased to cash incentives, and restrictions of behaviour for the unvaccinated. Social cohesion is already becoming a problem for a lot of small business owners that are faced with restrictions on the number of customers they can have within in their venues. That said, the goal posts may well move again.  Having just spoken to my barber who owns another business in the city, he doesn't expect some things to ever be normal again as some people have fundamentally changed their behaviour and ways of doing business. A significant number of people will continue to work from home which has dire consequences for small business in the CBD area.  It's a great time if you have a pathology business but I wouldn't want to be working in an ICU when the state and international borders open and Covid eventually rips the remaining unvaccinated, elderly and those with weak immune systems. Our Commie pinko health service will be strained to the absolute maximum.

That 72% is for the entire population. It seems it will reach above 80% by the end of this year which will make it one of the highest vaccination rates in the World. Well, 72% could be already described as such.

I'm pretty sure that 72% represents the eligible population, that is 12+, which is a very good result, but not really 72% of the entire population. I will stand corrected if someone can demonstrate otherwise though.

Nope, that is for the entire population.
As of this morning 36,709,777 people are fully vaccinated from 51 million something population.

And 79.6% (92% for over 18s) have received a first dose

Ok, I stand corrected, but it says something about the Korea's aging and shrinking population.

To be fair, the high school seniors were already vaccinated in August. So far the fully vaccinated are 17 or above. Rather than 18 or older. The 12-17 age group started receiving their first jabs this month. (or maybe it's next month?) Anyways, none of them are fully vaccinated yet.

Well, given the initial supply shortages that's a fairly rapid and high rate of vaccination. So it makes you wonder why they're holding out so long with the mask mandate. I guess they're still very concerned about the kids. Perhaps the goalpost might move in more favourable direction once approval to vaccinate kids under 12, hopefully sometime soon.

I'm just guessing but perhaps seeing how other countries ended up with zero restrictions.

Although outdoor masks might not be a thing for much longer. And not even indoor from early next year. The details will be revealed soon.

''Wearing masks will continue to be mandatory indoors at least through the first and second phases. Letting go of masks may be possible in the last phase, the headquarters hinted. ''

Someone hit the house lights switch at Yongsan IMAX the other day during Dune. Right in the heat of the battle sequence.

Well, could be worse. Old man could have shat himself in the aisle and then you have 20 minutes (or however long until the end) of sucktitude rather than 2.
