YG Entertainment announced on the 24th that BLACKPINK member Lisa has tested positive for COVID-19.
The other 3 members, Jennie, Rose, and Jisoo, are currently awaiting their PCR test results. They took the test although they did not come into close contact with Lisa. (UPDATE: The other members have tested negative.)
The company said it has shared the information with health officials and took tougher preemptive measures than the health authorities' guidelines.
Below is YG Entertainment's official statement:
"Hello, this is YG Entertainment.
BLACKPINK's Lisa was diagnosed with COVID-19 this afternoon.
The other 3 BLACKPINK members haven't been classified as close contacts as of yet, but they immediately took PCR tests after hearing of Lisa's positive COVID-19 results. They're currently awaiting their results.
We shared this information quickly and accurately with representatives and staff, and we took strong preemptive measures beyond the guidelines of health authorities.
We'll continue to provide full support with the health of our artists and related staff members as our top priority. If there are any changes in the future, we'll once again notify you quickly."
