SINGAPORE (May 1): Dormitories severely affected by the coronavirus are set to have on-site Community Care Facilities (CCFs) to house Covid-19 positive migrant workers who display mild symptoms or are clinically well.

With this, patients will be moved to these CCFs immediately upon diagnosis and need not await a transfer to an off-site medical site as is currently done, the Inter-Agency Task Force on Covid-19 said on Friday. Off-site CCFs presently housing patients include D’Resort, Singapore Expo and Changi Exhibition Centre.

Meanwhile, on-site Community Recovery Facilities (CRFs) will also be set up to care for non-infectious patients discharged from CCFs.
