The notice reads,

“Hello, this is Fantagio.

On September 16, ASTRO’s JinJin was not feeling well and went to get a PCR test for COVID-19 just in case. At the time, he received a negative test result.

On September 18, he felt abnormal symptoms once again and went to get another PCR COVID-19 test. On September 19, it was confirmed that he had tested positive.

At the moment, JinJin has entered self-quarantine as per the orders of the disease control authorities and is waiting for guidance about further necessary measures.

ASTRO members Moonbin, Sanha, who crossed paths with JinJin, and all the staff members are being tested for COVID-19 and are awaiting their results. All scheduled events have been cancelled and everyone will enter voluntary self-quarantine.

We apologize for causing such concern to many people. In future, the agency will continue to prioritize the artists and staff members’ health and do our best for our artist’s quick recovery.”
