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

    Operations of temporary screening clinics that were scheduled to be open until Sun, Jan. 17, 2021 have been extended for four more weeks until Sun, Feb. 14, 2021 in connection with the special preventive measures for the Seollal holidays.

    The temporary screening clinics, installed at main subway stations and public parking lots with easy public access and heavy floating population, were operated for 32 days from Mon, Dec. 14, 2020 to Thu, Jan. 14, 2021. During this period, 536,312 individuals were tested (daily average of 16,759)—of which 1,671 (0.31%) tested positive and were placed under isolated treatment. The temporary screening clinics blocked the spreading of the virus from asymptomatic individuals and contributed to the reduced number of confirmed cases.

    However, in consideration of the number of people tested on a daily average and the efficiency of the screening clinic operations, four of the existing 56 locations will be merged with nearby screening clinics to lessen the fatigue of medical teams. Two screening clinics (one in Gangseo-gu and one in Seocho-gu) will be moved to another location starting Mon, Jan. 18 to allow for more people to get tested.

    The screening clinic at Parking Lot of Magok Indoor Badminton Courts in Gangseo-gu will be moved to the Magok Zone 8 Public Parking Lot (728-43, Magok-dong), and the screening clinic at the Banpo Sports Complex in Seocho-gu will be moved to Yangjae Neighborhood Park (311, Yangjae-dong) for operations starting Mon, Jan. 18.

    Locations and hours of the temporary screening clinics can be found on the SMG website, by calling 120, or searching “임시선별검사소” (temporary screening clinic) on NAVER Map or Kakao Map.
