The South Korean government has eased the nation's social distancing measures to Level 2. Restaurants are now allowed to operate after 9 p.m., while franchise coffee shops and bakeries can receive eat-in customers. Here's more on what's allowed and what's not.

A customer enters a franchise cafe.

[Soundbite] "Dining in? (Yes.) Then check in using your QR code, please."

They are now allowed to drink beverages inside cafes.

[Soundbite] KIM JONG-HAK(CUSTOMER) : "I'm glad I can use cafes again, but I'm still a bit concerned. So I keep my mask on."

Restaurants, which had been allowed to provide take-out and delivery only, can now allow customers to dine in. Indoor gyms, small private academies of fewer than 300 people and reading rooms have also re-opened. Of 12 kinds of high-risk facilities, restrictions have been lifted only for internet cafes. However, eating and smoking inside internet cafes are still prohibited, and customers must be spaced apart. Those younger than 19 are banned from entering internet cafes. Vendors seem relieved for now. But they still struggle to make ends meet.

[Soundbite] KIM KEUM-JA(RESTAURANT OWNER) : "Business is still slow. But I feel much better after the changes."

[Soundbite] CHOI WAN-SUN(INTERNET CAFE OWNER) : "I think it's illegitimate to ban eating and drinking inside. It's tantamount to keeping my place closed."

In Seoul, which saw a resurgence of COVID-19 cases, some of the restrictions remain in place. The ban on gatherings of more than 10 people has been extended until after the Chuseok holiday and the Hangeul Day weekend. The Seoul Metropolitan Government has rejected applications for more than 110 mass rallies of 400,000 people.

[Soundbite] SEO JUNG-HYUP(ACTING SEOUL MAYOR) : "The ban on gatherings of more than 10 people is a strong measure that falls under Level 3 social distancing. We made this decision in light of public concern."

Restrictions will also remain in place for crowded areas in Hangang River parks in Yeouido, Banpo and Ttukseom. The ban for indoor gatherings of more than 50 people and outdoor gatherings of more than 100 people is still effective, and masks remain mandatory both indoors and outdoors.
