All members and staff of the group ‘LOONA’ tested negative for COVID-19.
On July 10th, the agency Blockberry Creative said, “One of LOONA’s staff members was diagnosed with COVID-19. So, all of the members of LOONA (HeeJin, Haseul, HyunJin, YeoJin, ViVi, Kim Lip, JinSoul, Choerry, Yves, Chuu, Gowon, and Olivia Hye) and employees who worked with them preemptively tested for the virus through PCR testing.”
So far, Blockberry has not received any action from the health authorities concerning the previously confirmed staff.
However, a Blockberry official said, “Although there was no request from health authorities, we have decided to suspend the activities of their fourth mini-album ‘&.’ They will all go into self-quarantine starting from today (July 10) to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and for the health and safety of our artists.”
“We will follow the public health authorities’ guidelines. Then, we will decide whether or not LOONA will resume their activities.”
LOONA is rapidly gaining popularity around the world recently. They released their fourth mini-album ‘&’ and entered the UK Official Album Downloads Chart Top 100 at No. 21.
