Travelers from the US and Europe entering South Korea will now be required to download a government self-quarantine smartphone app, according to the country’s Central Disaster Relief Headquarters.
The app will remind users to check their symptoms every day, and will monitor their location to confirm they are following the quarantine order.
Those violating quarantine without a proper reason will be immediately reported to the authorities, and deported if they are foreign citizens. Police will immediately respond to the site when a person leaves their quarantine without authorization.
Violating quarantine is punishable by up to one year in prison or a fine of up to 10 million won ($8,150).
