Worker Movements at S11 Dormitory on 5 July 2020

  1. The Ministry of Manpower is aware of a video circulating online, on migrant workers gathering at S11 Dormitory on Sunday, 5 July 2020.

  2. The migrant workers who gathered were dormitory residents who are residing in a cleared block for recovered workers. 

  3. On that day, the dormitory operator was re-assigning rooms in the block, to group workers based on their employers and worksites, as part of the Safe Living measures that dormitory operators must implement. The measures are to reduce the risks of reinfection of COVID-19, and to enable migrant workers to return to work safely.

  4. The initial instructions from the dormitory operator had caused some confusion amongst the migrant worker residents, which led to them gathering at the common area. The dormitory operator immediately tried to resolve the situation, and was able to disperse the gathering within 30 minutes. All the residents involved were wearing masks.
