(16 Aug 2020) The National Museum of Korea and the National Library of Korea shut their doors after staff members from both facilities were diagnosed with the coronavirus.
The national library was the first to close of the state-run culture facilities on Friday (15 Aug), when a staff member was diagnosed with Covid-19 earlier that day. The national museum followed on Sunday, announcing that a staff member had been diagnosed late Saturday and that it will close for the time being.
The two facilities began tracking the workers’ schedules to see who they came into contact with, but the library and museum both confirmed that neither of their roles required them to interact with visitors.
