Coronavirus remakes South Koreans' Thanksgiving traditions

First of All. HAPPY CHUSOK!!

Chuseok, the Korean thanksgiving, is all about families returning to their hometowns and having a family reunion. 

However, the COVID-19 pandemic has the Health Ministry strongly encouraging the public to stay home and keep a safe distance during the nation's major traditional holiday. 

The government's anti-virus steps during this year's Chuseok include a ban on eating at restaurants at highway rest areas and the installation of plastic partitions at outdoor tables there. It will also charge expressway tolls, which were suspended during the holiday in past years. Authorities will also ban big folk festivals and encourage online memorial services for ancestors.
