In August 2019, we learned that LG Innotek is providing dual and triple camera modules for the iPhone 11 and is expected to provide Apple with next generation Time-of-Flight (ToF) modules with 3D detection capability.
Today we learn that LG Innotek has closed one of its camera module factories in South Korea after a worker tested positive for COVID-19.
However, the Reuters report did not specify which factory LG Innotek has closed in Gumi. The list of Apple 2019 suppliers indicates that Apple is working with five LG Innotek factories in Gumi, as shown below.

Last week we released a report called “Samsung Electronics has closed its Galaxy S20 Z Flip plant in Gumi over the weekend until Tuesday due to COVID-19. “
