VIVIZ’s Umji Tests Positive For COVID-19
Unfortunately, VIVIZ member Umji had tested positive for COVID-19 on 28 January. As per Big Planet Made’s statement, Umji had already received the two COVID-19 vaccines. However, since a staff member was in close contact with a COVID-19 patient, Umji caught the virus.
At present, she is displaying minor symptoms and is isolating; she will be undergoing home treatment. In addition to this, the other two VIVIZ members (SinB and Eunha) have tested negative. But, because of the incubation period, they will get PCR testing daily to keep their health status in check.
The staff will also get PCR testing as soon as possible to avoid any further spread of the virus. The agency shared that they will do their best to follow all the guidelines laid by quarantine authorities.
In the end, Big Planet Made apologized for causing concern among the fans and netizens. They shared that their artists are their priority and hope Umji recovers soon.
VIVIZ is an upcoming Kpop girl group consisting of ex-GFriend members, Umji, SinB, and Eunha. They are scheduled to debut in February with a mini album. Furthermore, any alterations in the debut schedule are not announced yet.
Wishing Umji a speedy recovery!
