Advisory to migrant domestic worker employment agencies on resources to teach MDWs how to conduct Antigen Rapid Test

Issued on 3 November 2021

To provide better safeguards for the community against COVID-19, MOM requires employment agencies to conduct Antigen Rapid Test (ART) for migrant domestic workers (MDWs) within 24 hours prior to deploying the MDW to her new employer.

To help MDWs understand more about ART and how to conduct the ART, MOM has produced materials in their native languages (an infographic, and video in Bahasa Indonesia, Burmese, English, Tagalog, Tamil). Do share these materials with them.
