Information About the H1N1 (Swine Flu) Virus

June 2, 2009

ATEK is closely monitoring the situation in regards to the H1N1 (swine flu) virus. We will update our site with useful information frequently.

Along with many Korean citizens, a number of non-citizen English language instructors have already been quarantined. It is important that everyone be treated fairly and in accordance with WHO guidelines. The WHO publishes a checklist for national authorities on how to contain the virus and offers information on handling quarantines.

We are in the process of contacting government agencies, the embassies of the countries that send teachers to Korea, and following up on all news of the teachers who have been quarantined. We are also investigating the legal right of foreigners to refuse to be tested or quarantined if they show no symptoms and have not traveled recently.

If you have additional information (personal testimony, school closings, testing of teachers who were not at risk, etc.) please contact us.
