Covid-19 rules: More migrant workers, up to 50,000 on weekends, may visit public places from April 26

Today, Singapore, 22 April 2022 - Up to 50,000 migrant workers living in dormitories here will be allowed to go about among the community on weekends and public holidays from next Tuesday (April 26), an increase from the 30,000 limit now.

On weekdays, the limit will be raised to 25,000, up from the 15,000 now.

They may spend up to eight hours out each time, whether on weekdays or weekends.

The Ministry of Health announced this on Friday (April 22) along with the easing of several other Covid-19 regulations that it described as a “milestone” progress towards living with the coronavirus.

With vaccine-related infection controls such as checks on vaccination status being lifted in most settings from next Tuesday, unvaccinated migrant workers will also be allowed to resume activities within the community.

Unvaccinated migrant workers will also not be required to apply for exit passes or take pre-visit antigen rapid tests before going to designated recreation centres.

Those who are vaccinated were already doing this from the start of this month.
