Advisory to migrant domestic worker employers to assist your MDW to perform Antigen Rapid Test when the need arises

Issued on 3 November 2021

It is important to safeguard your family and the community against COVID-19. We encourage everyone to practise social responsibility including using the Antigen Rapid Test (ART) kits, that have been distributed to all households, should the need arise.

If your MDW feels well, but is worried that she has come in contact with a COVID positive case, assist her in conducting an ART.

MOM has produced an infographic and video for MDWs in their native languages, to share with them more information about the ART and provide a step-by-step guide on how to perform an ART.

Do share with her these materials (infographic, and video in Bahasa Indonesia, Burmese, English, Tagalog, Tamil) and assist her to self-test when necessary. Remind her to continue to adhere to prevailing safe management measures (SMM), and visit the doctor if she is feeling unwell.
