Lee Gikwang And Yang Yoseob Diagnosed With COVID-19

On August 6, Around Us Entertainment revealed that the two members of Highlight had been given a COVID-19 diagnosis. Additionally, until August 8 Yoon Doojoon and Son Dongwoon will be sequestered.

The full statement from the agency is as follows:

“Greetings from Around Us Entertainment. Yang Yoseob and Lee GIkwang, two of our artists, both tested positive for COVID-19. After entering the nation on August 3, Yang Yoseob underwent PCR testing; the findings were negative. The COVID19 diagnosis was made today after he underwent a second PCR test on August 5 due to some mild bodily aches (August 6). The PCR tests carried out following their arrival in the nation on August 3 yielded negative results for Yoon Doojoon, Lee Gikwang, and Son Dongwoon as well. They had fast antigen tests on August 6 even though they weren’t exhibiting any COVID-19-related symptoms. Lee Gikwang tested positive as a result, while Yoon Doojoon and Song Dongwoon came back negative.

Yoon Doojoon and Son Dongwoon also underwent PCR testing today, and as a result, they will remain in self-isolation until Monday, August 8, when the test results are released.

Three doses of the COVID-19 vaccination were previously administered to Yang Yoseob and Lee Gikwang. Lee Gikwang currently has no symptoms, and Yang Yoseob just has a few minor physical aches. By the recommendations of the government health officials, Yang Yoseob and Lee Gikwang will halt all planned activities and concentrate on self-isolation and at-home treatment.

For our artists to meet their fans in good health, we will prioritise their health and do everything in our power to help them with their treatment and recovery. Additionally, we’ll work to ensure everyone’s safety by strictly adhering to the rules of health authorities”
