Advisory on extension of Rostered Routine Testing policy and Government subsidy

Issued on 28 December 2021

  1. In view of the current COVID-19 situation, the Fast and Easy Testing-Rostered Routine Testing (FET-RRT) regime will continue in 2022 for workers residing in dormitories and/or working in construction, marine shipyard and process (CMP) sectors.
  2. As announced by Ministry of Health, the Government will continue to provide subsidised Antigen Rapid Test (ART) kits until 31 March 2022, for workers in sectors that are on mandatory RRT. However, for workers who are medically eligible for vaccination but remain unvaccinated or partially vaccinated, they will not be eligible for the subsidised kits.

    Distribution of Subsidised ART Kits
  3. Eligible workers on 3-day FET-RRT1 regime will be issued 1 box of 25 ART kits each, to fulfil their testing requirements until end of February 2022. Workers on 7-day FET-RRT2 regime will not be issued with additional ART kits, as they were allocated enough kits in mid-October 2021 to last until end of February 2022.
  4. The additional ART kits will be made available based on the following arrangement:
    • For eligible workers staying in selected dormitories listed in Annex A – MOM will deliver the ART kits to the selected dormitories between 30 December 2021 and 15 January 2022. The dormitory operators will distribute the kits to their eligible dormitory residents.
    • For eligible workers staying in other dormitories – The dormitory operators can collect the ART kits on behalf of their dormitory residents, from any of the 3 recreation centres (RCs) listed in Annex B starting from 30 December 2021. The dormitory operators would need to show the workers' work passes at the collection point for validation.
    • For eligible workers not staying in the dormitories – Employers may approach their respective sector leads i.e. Building and Construction Authority (BCA) or Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) for the ART kits.

FOOTNOTE

  1. Currently, workers on 3-day FET-RRT regime include vaccinated workers, as well as unvaccinated workers or partially unvaccinated workers who are medically ineligible for vaccination.
  2. Eligible workers on 7-day FET-RRT were previously issued with 25 ART kits.
