Singapore: Up to 50000 migrant workers to be allowed in community space

Business Standard, Singapore, 23 April 2022 - Up to 50,000 migrant workers, living in dormitories and working in Singapore's labour-intensive sectors, will be allowed to go about among the community on weekends and public holidays from 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, said the Ministry of Health on Friday.

The migrant workers, largely from India, Bangladesh and China, may spend up to eight hours out each time, whether on weekdays or weekends.

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.
