South Korean officials have rolled out a plan for "everyday life in quarantine," which outlines a two-year strategy for getting back on track after the coronavirus pandemic end, according to Yonhap News.

This roadmap addresses “31 areas, covering almost every situation that people would face in their daily lives,” starting with thorough handwashing, practicing safe distancing and self-isolation if coronavirus symptoms begin to appear, according to Yonhap News.

“These guidelines were created with a purpose of balancing people’s daily lives and quarantine activities and aim to begin with people’s understanding and participation. The guidelines are also prepared with a mind that they can be upgraded with people’s creative ideas,” said Vice Health Minister Kim Gang-lip.

The plan also urged bowing instead of handshakes and communicating with teleconferencing rather than face-to-face, wearing face masks in public and keeping social gatherings to a minimum. 

Restaurants and other in-store operations are also recommended to change seating arraignment to enhance social distancing, widen spaces between tables and seating guests in zig-zag patterns to keep them far enough apart.

The country's Health Ministry said the guidelines are not meant to be seen as laws but rather recommendations that could be revised with input from the public.

South Korea is one of the countries that has slowed the spread of coronavirus without imposing any stay-at-home orders or business lockdowns.

Currently, it has 10,708 confirmed cases of coronavirus, with 240 deaths.
