North Korea to allow foreigners to visit water parks, a first during pandemic
Foreign diplomats in Pyongyang will be able to visit water parks and other sites for the first time since the pandemic began, relaxed government rules seen by NK News show, as North Korea continues to claim COVID-19 cases are trending down.
The country’s maximum emergency anti-epidemic system installed to curb the influx and spread of the virus, however, will remain in effect, according to the text of the rules.
Diplomats who wish to visit the places noted in this week’s new rules should alert North Korea’s foreign ministry in advance and follow quarantine regulations, the text indicates. But NK News understands foreigners are not required to get tested for COVID-19 for such visits, though they must undergo temperature checks and sanitizing.
