  • Additional Installation of Temporary Screening Clinics for Citizens’ Free COVID-19 Testing

  • Welfare, Health & Security News SMG 10695

    25 Districts of Seoul Operational Status of Temporary COVID-19 Screening Clinics Free Anonymous COVID-19 Testing Regardless of Symptoms

    The Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) will sequentially operate 56 temporary screening clinics for citizens to get free anonymous COVID-19 tests regardless of symptoms in order to block the spread of COVID-19 in Seoul, which has recorded the highest daily confirmed cases.

    Until now, citizens were able get tested for COVID-19 at designated screening clinics—albeit difficult—only after the results of epidemiological surveillance on confirmed cases and their pertinence thereof. Now, with the additional installation of temporary screening clinics, free anonymous COVID-19 testing is available to all citizens regardless if they show symptoms or not. Moreover, PCR and rapid antigen tests are also available in addition to the PCR testing of nasal swab specimen collection.

    The SMG selected 56 areas for the installation of temporary screening clinics in cooperation with autonomous districts, including accessible vacant parks as well as major subway stations with great foot traffic and parking lots of public facilities that have suspended operations due to reinforced social distancing.

    Operational Status of Temporary Screening Clinics by District (as of 9 AM, Jan. 5)

    *Saliva/PCR tests excluded for all clinics

    ※ Operation (hours, etc.) subject to change depending on clinics’ operating circumstances.
