MNH Entertainment released a statement on March 1 confirming that they have put Chung Ha and her team in self-isolation following the trip as requested by Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Chunga Ha, however, has tested negative for the virus.

“For the sake of safety, all scheduled activities have been canceled for the time being, and we will continue to take the best possible measures and deal with [the virus] faithfully,” the statement read. “We thank everyone working hard to combat the virus, and we will do our best to protect our safety and health from COVID-19.”

As a result, Chung Ha has withdrawn from several scheduled shows, including the Head In The Clouds Festival with 88Rising in Jakarta.

As of writing, Korea has a recorded number of over 2,000 COVID-19 cases which is the highest number in the world outside of China, where the virus originated.
