The examination has a total of 890 subjects over 19 years old, who have been randomly selected among the Namyangju Poongyang Health Center area (Jinjeop, Onam, Byeolnae-dong, Byeolnea-myeon), according to a statistical method. The examination will be operated with an investigator visiting the subjects and holding 1:1 interviews.

This year, considering the exceptional case of COVID-19, steps such as measuring body features such as height and weight will be skipped, and the number of questions will also be greatly reduced. The subjects will answer a total of 142 questions, in which 97 of the questions are required, and 45 of them are related to COVID-19.

The city requires 5 inspectors to take a COVID-19 test, and received negative results for all the inspectors. The inspectors are provided with an environment where they could perform self-checks of their health, wear masks when visiting the subjects, sanitize their hands, and check their body temperatures so that the subjects for the examination can reduce the concern of getting infected by COVID-19. 

The head of Namyangju Poongyang Health Center Jung Tea-shik mentioned that "safe examination will be conducted while keeping prevention instructions for the COVID-19," and added that "the examination will play an important role in the development of the city, and we therefore ask for cooperation from the citizens."
