The coronavirus pandemic is still continuing. Besides compliance with anti-epidemic regulations such as wearing masks and prohibiting gatherings (more than 4 people). To reduce the risk of the spread of Covid-19 in the community, we encourage foreign domestic helpers to conduct the Covid-19 tests to protect both themselves and others. Here is some information about where and how to receive Covid-19 test and vaccine.
