Employers have been asked to arrange for their domestic helpers to either “stay-in” at their home or in a separate place, “subject to the accommodation environment”.

The Labour Affairs Bureau said that it also hopes that the domestic helpers “can fully cooperate with their employers’ accommodation arrangements” and work together in efforts to prevent Covid-19.

In cooperation with the government’s Covid-19 prevention work, the bureau requested both employers and employees to understand each other, communicate and overcome difficulties together.

Both resident and non-resident employees violating rules on going outside or not wearing a KN95 facemask when out and about are liable to imprisonment of up to two years or a fine in line with the Law on the Prevention, Control and Treatment of Infectious Diseases.

Moreover, with pandemic prevention currently being at “a critical stage”, the bureau reminded the public that non-essential crowd gathering activities should be “avoided or reduced as much as possible” while the flow of people in the community should be lessened to minimise the risk of the virus spreading, The Macau Post Daily reported.
