ITZY's Yeji tested positive for COVID-19, here's what's next for the band

ITZY postpones its third anniversary celebration due to Yeji, Lia and Yuna's health status

ITZY cancelled their third anniversary celebration which was to be broadcast on YouTube because the members underwent a rapid test for COVID-19 diagnosis and Lia tested positive during the test.

The other members, although they came out negative, underwent a PCR test just like Lia to confirm whether they are negative or positive to the diagnosis, however, this morning their agency JYP Entertainment released a statement on the matter.

Yeji also tests positive for COVID -19

Although previously only Lia had been diagnosed with COVID-19, the other members took the PCR test to make sure whether or not they have the virus and now the result came back positive for Yeji. This morning her agency issued the following statement.

"Hello, this is JYP Entertainment.

We are writing to notify you as ITZY's Yeji was tested positive for COVID-19 on the morning of the 14th. Previously, Yeji's test results on the 12th were inconclusive so she took PCR testing on the morning of the 13th. Yeji was then tested positive on the morning of the 14th. 

Lia is fully vaccinated including her second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and she is now in treatment at home without any symptoms other than a slight fever. 

Yuna tested negative. Yuna is also fully vaccinated and she is currently in quarantine per the health authority guidelines. 

We promise to do our best for the treatment and recovery of our artists, prioritizing their health so that they can greet fans in healthy conditions soon.
Thank you."

For the moment Yeji is being treated at home with all the health measures that the relevant authorities indicate, apparently Yeji only has a mild cough, however, she will be in quarantine until she fully recovers as well as her partner Yuna who is still waiting for a concrete result.

On the other hand, the rest of the ITZY members have tested negative. MIDZY will have to wait for the celebration of the third anniversary of the band, since it was postponed due to these inconveniences.
