SEOUL, Jan. 7 (Korea Bizwire) — Seoul’s Yeongdeungpo District Public Health Center said Wednesday that five new smoking booths have been added to non-smoking streets in the financial district of Yeouido to minimize the risk of passive smoking while protecting the rights of smokers.
The booths have an open design, allowing natural ventilation to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
The district posted instructions for all visitors to refrain from entering the booth when suffering from coronavirus symptoms, maintain a two meter distance from other smokers, withhold conversation while smoking, and avoid spitting.
The district designated the pedestrian road near the main financial street in Yeouido, Yeouido Station, and the street in front of the National Assembly as no-smoking zones last year.
