Singapore — A total of 342 foreign workers who live in a block in Space@Tuas have been moved to a government quarantine facility following the detection of a new Covid-19 infection in the dormitory.
The Ministry of Manpower announced this on Thursday (Oct 1). The new case had been discovered on Monday during rostered routine testing.
According to the ministry’s preliminary assessment, “the physical segregation measures to prevent workers across two different blocks within the dormitory from intermixing could have been breached”, which means that some of the workers may have been mingling with others.
As a precautionary measure, a Stay Home Notice (SHN) was immediately issued to the workers residing in the two blocks to ensure there was no further spread of infection.
But, when the investigation concluded, “it was established that it was unlikely for workers from different blocks to have intermixed”, and therefore the SHN was lifted for the unaffected block.
The ministry also made an appeal for compliance with strict safe living measures within the dormitories to dormitory operators, employers and workers, to limit and minimise the need for isolating workers, and so that entire blocks need not be given SHNs.
It stated: “All stakeholders must play their part:
All worker dormitories, including Space@Tuas, had been cleared of the infection last August, but infection clusters have shown up over the past weeks.
To date, Singapore has had a total of 57,896 Covid-19 cases, including the 10 new cases reported on (Friday (Oct 2). Of the new cases, one is a community case and five are imported cases “who had all been placed on Stay-Home Notice upon arrival in Singapore”, said the Ministry of Health. /TISG
