Facemask Requirement


Updates as of November 13


When indoors, one must wear a facemask at all times.

When outdoors,

  (1) where crowds gather (rallys, concerts/performances, events), one must wear a facemask at all times, regardless of the level of social distancing measures; 

  (2) otherwise, one must wear a facemask when it is difficult to keep a distance of 2m from others.

* Where it involves unidentified crowds or high-risk group of people, penalties may be imposed if one does not wear a facemask.


When indoors, one does not have to wear a mask when staying in an isolated place (home, office, etc.) or staying with a family member or roommate.

When outdoors, one does not have to wear a mask when it is possible to keep a 2m distance from others (jogging, walking, etc.).

Also, for activities that cannot be done with wearing a mask (dining, swimming, sauna, washing faces and brushing teeth, giving a performance, sports match, etc.), one does not have to wear a mask.


Penalties can be imposed from November 13, when one does not wear a facemask at a facemask required place*, even after being advised to wear one on site. Also, penalties may be imposed when one wears an unauthorized facemask or one does not completely cover their nose and mouth.

In compliance with the COVID-19 code of conduct and the recent administrative order on compulsory wearing of a facemask in Seoul, it is required to wear a facemask indoors at all times, and it goes the same when you visit any campus building. Wearing a facemask is also required outdoors when it is difficult to keep a 2m distance from others.


In Korea, it is also mandatory to wear a facemask on any type of public transportation. Those who refuse to wear a facemask will not be allowed to board. This policy applies to campus shuttles as well. 



On-campus Mobile Questionnaire

One can access the questionnaire through the QR code, URL or SNU mobile app (SNU support > Shuttlebus Questionnaire) and must choose the particular shuttle route and fill it out with the name and mobile number.

To enter a campus building, visitors must wear a mask and use the hand sanitizer at the entry. The majority of campus buildings require visitors to fill out the mobile questionnaire. One can access the questionnaire through the QR code, URL or SNU mobile app (SNU support > Mobile Questionnaire). In the questionnaire, the visitor must choose the particular campus building number they visit and fill it out with the name, mobile number, and the purpose of the visit.
