Coronavirus: MOM, BCA remind employers to provide meals for construction workers during stay-home period

Employers must make sure their foreign construction workers under the newly mandated stay-home notice get proper meals, the authorities said on Tuesday (April 21).

The Ministry of Manpower and the Building and Construction Authority said in a statement that employers are responsible for providing sufficient food to workers, who are not allowed to leave their residences for 14 days...

...Several migrant groups, like Home, have been helping to make up for the shortfalls.

For example, the Alliance of Guest Workers Outreach has partnered MWC to start an emergency meal support programme specifically targeted at workers in smaller FCDs .

It distributed more than 88,000 meals to almost 9,000 workers between April 10 and 20.
