Additional Measures For Newly Arrived Foreign Workers

To further reduce the risk of transmission from newly arrived migrant workers into the workplace, the Multi-Ministry Taskforce (MTF) has decided to extend the post-Stay-Home Notice (SHN) 7-day testing regime to all newly arrived Work Permit and S Pass workers in Construction, Marine and Process (CMP) sectors from higher-risk countries/regions. Previously only those headed to dormitories needed to be subject to the additional 7-days testing. MTF has also decided on mandatory On-Arrival Serology test for foreign domestic workers (FDW) and confinement nannies (CN) who have recent travel history to higher-risk countries/regions. The additional test will help to identify FDWs who have recovered from an old infection and can therefore be released early from SHN in Singapore.
