Advisory to MDW employers on Heightened Alert to minimise the spread of COVID-19

Issued on 15 May 2021

Minimise the spread of COVID-19 in line with Phase 2 (Heightened Alert)

To further minimise the spread of Covid-19, rules on social gathering have been further tightened with effect from 16 May 2021 to 13 June 2021. Inform your Migrant Domestic Worker (MDW) of the stricter measures.

  1. Avoid crowded areas
    • Encourage your MDW to stay home as much as possible on her rest day.
    • If she has to go out, keep it short.
    • Alternatively, allow and encourage your MDW to take her rest day on a weekday.
    • If your MDW decides to stay at home for her rest day, you should not assign work to your MDW.
  2. Reduce interaction further
    • Limit the group to a maximum of 2 people.
    • No intermingling between groups.
  3. Dining-in suspended
    • No dine-in at restaurants, food courts, and hawker centres.
  4. Remind your MDW to wear a mask at all times when going out, and see a doctor immediately if she is feeling unwell.
  5. We have provided the information in their native languages. You can use the materials to explain to your MDW.
