Starting from Monday, up to 6 people are allowed to gather.
This is slightly eased from the four-person meeting cap that's been in place for the past four weeks,.. but the business curfews remain.
The updated measures will hold for at least another three weeks.
Eateries, bars, gyms, public baths should close by 9PM, while hagwons, PC rooms, and kids cafes can stay open until 10 at night.
The curbs on mass gatherings and events are being kept in place as well, allowing up to 49 people if there are unvaccinated people in the mix, and up to 299 people if everybody is vaccinated.
With Omicron a looming threat, authorities continue to be wary, keeping the curbs in place at least until after Seollal, the Lunar New Year holiday.
Vaccine passes, on the other hand, have been withdrawn from department stores and supermarkets.
The Seoul Administrative Court last Friday suspended vaccine passes in department stores and markets in the city.
So health authorities have decided to just remove vaccine pass rules from all malls and markets nationwide altogether.
A more detailed announcement about this is due later on Monday.
Meanwhile, none of Pfizer's COVID-19 pill recipients have reported any anomalies or side effects from the pill.
The South Korean government began rolling out Pfizer's oral COVID-19 treatment, Paxlovid last Friday,.. and 9 people who are being treated from home started taking the treatment on the same day.
Central Disease Control Headquarters said that most of these patients have shown visible improvement in their conditions without any reports of side effects.
