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. These workers are also required to take a Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Test upon arrival from 5 February 2021.
