Dear Editors,


As a precautionary measure following the Westlite Woodlands Dormitory cluster, MOM’s Assurance, Care and Engagement (ACE) Group, with the Ministry of Health (MOH), the Building Construction Authority (BCA) and the Economic Development Board (EDB), began pre-emptive COVID-19 testing operations across various dormitories and worksites last week. These tests are in addition to the Rostered Routine Testing (RRT) conducted on dormitory residents every 14 days, and includes both workers recovered from previous infections and workers who have never been infected. From 23 to 26 April, more than 5,500 workers were tested.
