LOONA TO SIT OUT FIRST ROUND OF QUEENDOM 2 DUE TO COVID

COVID strikes again.

Blockberry Creative has stated LOONA will not be unable to attend the first preliminary performance of Mnet's 'Queendom 2' due to COVID-19. 


The label issued the following statement on February 28th KST:


"Greetings, my name is Blockberry Creative. We are notifying HaSeul, YeoJin, and Vivi of LOONA's positive COVID-19 test results.


After a few members tested positive via a self-test kit on the 25th, LOONA members underwent a PCR test. HaSeul, YeoJin, and Vivi tested positive for COVID-19 on February 26th. 


YeoJin has received three doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, while HaSeul and Vivi have received their second doses. All three members have now ceased all activities and are following the health authority's guidelines.


The remaining members tested negative on the 25th's PCR tests, but have been testing continuously using a self-test kit due to the virus's dormant phase. Some members tested on the 27th using a self-test kit and have since undergone a PCR test. We will follow up on the results of the tests.


As a result, LOONA will be unable to compete in the first preliminary round of Mnet's 'Queendom 2' on February 28th.


We apologize to our fans and partners for causing concern and promise to do everything possible to safeguard the health and safety of our artists."
