    SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA, January 6, 2021 — From today (Jan.7), the Seoul Metropolitan Government introduces a phone call based entry log system to 72 facilities where the digital weak uses frequently such as public offices, welfare facilities, medical institutions, and markets.

    Each facility will be entitled a six-digit number starting with 14(e.g. 140000) and giving a call to this number certifies one’s entrance time automatically. The former entry system like QR code or handwriting will also continue.

    While preparing QR codes and handwritten lists at the same time, the method of registration for entry is expanded by establishing the phone call based entry log system.

    Numbers can be checked on the banners or information boards in each facility. The call is free of charge. After the pandemic is over, all six digits can be used as the representative phone number of each local government’s civil service counseling.

    The city government plans to implement the phone call based entry log system for 72 sites first and expand it after conducting satisfaction surveys in the future.

    Han Je-Hyun, Deputy Mayor of Safety Management Office of the city government, said, “Entry log system has become more diverse and easier, especially for people who have difficulty using QR code.” He added, “Based on the satisfaction measurement, the system will be expanded to the multi- purpose facilities.”
