All Dormitories Declared Cleared Of COVID-19

81% of Construction, Marine & Process (CMP) Foreign Workers Have Green AccessCode

  1. With effect from today, all dormitories have been declared cleared of COVID-19, with the exception of 17 standalone blocks1 in six Purpose-Built Dormitories (PBDs) which serve as quarantine facilities. This means that all workers living in dormitories have either recovered or have been tested to be free from the virus, except for 22,500 workers in isolation in Centralised Government Quarantine Facilities and the remaining 17 standalone blocks in PBDs.

  2. Upon COVID-clearance, the dormitory residents will be able to resume work once the dormitory operators, employers and workers have made the necessary preparations2 to do so in a safe manner. With the completion of dormitory clearance, and BCA giving permission for all construction firms to resume work from 10 August 2020, the majority of foreign workers (including dormitory residents) are now able to resume work (i.e. have Green AccessCode).
