The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic poses particular challenges for migrant workers around the world . This study explores the unique experiences of foreign domestic workers (FDWs) in Hong Kong, and how COVID-19 impacted their health and economic wellbeing . Interviews with FDWs (n = 15) and key informants (n = 3) were conducted between May and August 2020 . FDWs reported a dual-country experience of the pandemic, where they expressed concerns about local transmission risks as well as worries about their family members in their home country . Changes to their current work situation included how their employers treated them, as well as their employment status . FDWs also cited blind spots in the Hong Kong policy response that also affected their experience of the pandemic, including a lack of support from the Hong Kong government . Additional support is needed to mitigate the particularly negative effects of the pandemic on FDWs.
