The checkout boxes will be placed in areas like shopping malls, hospitals, polyclinics, F&B outlets and gyms.
SafeEntry Gateway check-out boxes will be installed at venues with high footfall, the Ministry of Health announced on Friday (Jun 18).
These places include shopping malls, hospitals and polyclinics. The system will be rolled out in the coming weeks.
In addition to installing SafeEntry check-out boxes at venues with high footfall, they will also be made available at places where individuals are likely to be in close proximity for prolonged periods with their masks off. These places include food and beverage outlets and gyms.
MOH said that this initiative was planned after receiving public feedback from users who wish to check out via SafeEntry but are unable to do so currently.
The ministry also said that installing SafeEntry Gateway check-out boxes will also help to facilitate more precise contact tracing.
These SafeEntry boxes are currently in use for check-ins where individuals place their TraceTogether tokens or mobile phones in front of the device to scan. The gateway device will be given to eligible businesses in the coming weeks.
Members of the public are encouraged to perform SafeEntry checkouts whenever possible, said MOH.
