Application to convert workplaces to Temporary Living Quarters (TLQ)

The TLQ scheme has ended on 31 March 2021.

TLQ was intended as a temporary measure since April 2020 to help employers cope with the sudden challenges faced due to COVID-19.

Since then, Safe Living and Safe Distancing measures have been successfully introduced in the dormitories. Dormitory residents are subjected to regular COVID-19 tests and have access to direct medical treatment via telemedicine.
