  • Extended Operations of Temporary Screening Clinics

  • Welfare, Health & Security News SMG 1787

    Free COVID-19 testing with ID even if you're asymptomatic! (starting Feb. 15, 2021)

    The Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) is continuing its operation of temporary screening clinics that were to be operated until Feb. 14. The SMG plans to continue its extended operations until social distancing is set to below level 2.

    However, for more responsive and efficient management, anonymous testing will no longer be available. Previously, citizens were able to get tested at temporary screening clinics by providing just their contact information, but citizens will now be required to provide their personal information, including name, date of birth, and phone number.

    Moreover, the SMG plans to reduce operations of some temporary screening clinics in consideration of factors, such as a general decline in the number of confirmed cases and the operational capacity of screening clinics.

    Citizens are advised to check each temporary screening clinic’s hours of operation in advance as the operational status may vary depending on circumstances.
