The last Wednesday of February is PinkShirtDay#PinkShirtDay .
A boy who went to school in a pink polo shirt at a high school in Nova Scotia in 2007 was terribly teased. Two senior boys who heard it handed out 50 pink T-shirts to their friends and protested silently with them the next day, which was the beginning of the anti-bullying movement.
What happened in a small town in eastern Canada has taken the wave of social media and is now spreading around the world as Pink Shirt Day @pinkshirtday. You can wear anything that is bright and conspicuous pink. This is a good opportunity to insist on the opposition to bullying. If you go out, please join us.

Voluntarily quarantined at the hotel for about 3 days until the PCR test results are available. All costs for inspections, accommodation, meals, etc. are expected to be about $ 2,000 per person. More details such as the period will be announced soon.
If the PCR test you received at the airport on arrival is positive, you will either stay in a government-designated quarantine or be transferred to a medical institution. Even if it is negative, it requires 14 days of self-quarantine at home. The government will strengthen the surveillance system. Violations of the quarantine order will result in six months in prison, a fine of $ 75,000, or both.
