SINGAPORE - After months of being cooped up in their dormitories, some 50 foreign workers had the chance to stretch their legs in Labrador Park and HortPark on Wednesday , as part of a trial run to allow more healthy workers out of their dorms on rest days.

The MOM's director of engagement for the foreign manpower management division, Mr Tan Shu Xiang, said the outing was organised to allow the workers to relax and enjoy themselves, especially as the last few months have been challenging for many of them. Workers are still largely restricted to their workplaces and dormitories, or approved locations like recreation centres, as part of measures to control the virus spread among the population.

Wednesday's outing was also supported by the National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre, and non-profit initiative A Good Space, they added.
