In a press statement, MOM said that as of June 28, 87,000 workers have recovered or been tested to be free from the virus and are in cleared premise.

These workers can return to work once dormitory operators, employers and workers have made the necessary steps to minimise the risk of new infections as the workers go to work on a daily basis.
