The Covid-19 Pandemic
When the Covid-19 Pandemic hit Singapore's shores in early 2020, a stream of regulations were collectively implemented by the Inter-Agency Taskforce to provide support to migrant workers and dormitory operators in the fight against Covid. Now handed over to the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) sub-division, our Dormitory Management Team works closely with the Assurance, Care and Engagement (ACE) Group to continue efforts in ensuring that the dormitories are prepared to respond to the virus and to prevent new public health threats to our migrant worker population.
Below are a list of commonly asked Questions & Answers for our client's reassurance:
