Exemption of Rostered Routine Testing for Fully Vaccinated COVID-19 Recovered Workers

18 Jan 2022

With effect from 17 January 2022, COVID-19 recovered workers who are fully vaccinated before 15 January 2022, will be exempted from Rostered Routine Testing (RRT) until further notice. The changes apply to the following groups: 

  1. Are workers residing in the dormitories; 
  2. Are personnel working in the Construction, Marine and Process (CMP) sectors except for border facing workers (regardless of vaccination status) who are put on 3-Day Fast and Easy Testing Rostered Routine Testing (FET RRT) cycle; and 
  3. Are frontline workers working in the dormitories and recreation centres. 

The latest RRT exemption takes into consideration that fully vaccinated recovered persons have better protection against the COVID-19 virus, and are at lower risk of symptomatic or severe disease if infected.
