[브레이크뉴스경기남부=김정은기자] 용인시가 방역 사각지대에 놓인 외국인 근로자의 코로나19 백신 접종 활성화와 방역관리를 위해 총력 대응에 나섰다.

 

불이익을 우려한 불법체류 등 외국인 근로자들이 진단검사나 백신접종을 기피하고 있어 시 특성에 맞는 맞춤형 대책이 필요하다는 판단에서다.

 

시는 14일 관계기관 5곳과 ‘외국인 방역관리 민관협의체’를 구성하고 오후석 제1부시장(시 재난안전대책본부 차장) 주재로 대책 회의를 열었다.

 

이날 회의엔 시 방역 관련 11개 부서와 용인동부경찰서, 중부지방고용노동청 경기지청, 수원출입국 외국인청, 다문화가족센터, 외국인복지센터 등이 참여했다.

 

우선 시는 이들 5곳 기관과 협력체계를 구축하고 외국인에 대한 방역수칙 점검 및 백신 접종률 제고에 힘을 모으기로 했다.

 

또 외국인이 자주 접속하는 온라인 커뮤니티와 지원센터를 중심으로 방역 수칙을 안내하고 다양한 언어로 된 홍보자료를 배포키로 했다.

[Break News Gyeonggi Nambu = Reporter Kim Jung-eun] Yongin City has launched an all-out countermeasure to vitalize the vaccination and quarantine management of COVID-19 for foreign workers who are in the blind spot of quarantine.

 

This is because foreign workers, such as illegal immigrants who are concerned about disadvantages, are avoiding diagnostic tests or vaccinations, so it is necessary to take measures tailored to the characteristics of the city.

 

On the 14th, the city formed a “private-private consultative body for quarantine management for foreigners” with five related organizations and held a countermeasure meeting presided over by the 1st Deputy Mayor No.

 

The meeting was attended by 11 departments related to quarantine, Yongin Dongbu Police Station, Jungbu Regional Employment and Labor Office Gyeonggi Branch, Suwon Immigration Office, Multicultural Family Center, and Foreign Welfare Center.

 

First of all, the city decided to build a cooperative system with these five institutions and to work together to check quarantine rules for foreigners and increase the vaccination rate.

 

In addition, it was decided to guide the quarantine rules centering on online communities and support centers frequently accessed by foreigners and to distribute promotional materials in various languages.

 

For foreigners who have difficulties in getting vaccinated due to their language, it is recommended to provide an interpreter and strengthen the quarantine management obligations of employers and employers who hire foreign workers so that workers are allowed to leave blank when receiving vaccinations or preemptive tests. We plan to intensively inspect workplaces that are not cooperating with quarantine measures.

 

In this regard, on the 13th, the city issued an administrative order to require domestic and foreign workers to undergo a COVID-19 diagnostic test by the 26th, as well as business owners who employ one or more foreign workers among workplaces with less than 100 employees in Cheoin and Giheung-gu. .

 

First Deputy Mayor Oh Seok-seok said, "As foreigners cannot be an exception to quarantine, we will actively cooperate with related organizations so that they can comply with quarantine rules and even complete vaccinations."

 

Meanwhile, Deputy Mayor Oh attended the monthly meeting of the Residents' Autonomy Committee held at the Administrative Welfare Center in Lee Dong-eup prior to the meeting and asked residents to actively promote the operation of the vaccination center so that undocumented foreigners can get the vaccine.

 

Starting with Pogok-eup on the 18th, the city will operate the ‘Corona 19 Visiting Vaccination Center’ for foreigners over the age of 30 living in 7 towns and villages in Cheoin-gu, including Yangji, Idong, Namsa, Wonsam, Baekam, and Mohyeon.

 

언어로 인해 접종에 어려움을 겪는 외국인을 위해선 통역을 지원하고 외국인 노동자를 고용하는 사업주와 고용주의 방역관리 의무를 강화해 근로자들이 예방접종이나 선제 검사 등을 받을 때 공가를 허용토록 권장한다. 방역에 비협조적인 사업장에 대해선 집중 점검에 나설 방침이다.

 

이와 관련 시는 지난 13일 처인·기흥구 소재 100인 미만 사업장 중 1인 이상 외국인 노동자를 고용하고 있는 사업주와 내·외국인 노동자를 대상으로 오는 26일까지 코로나19 진단검사를 받도록 행정명령을 내린 바 있다.

 

오후석 제1부시장은 “외국인이라고 방역에 예외가 될 수 없는 만큼 이들이 방역 수칙을 준수하고 백신접종까지 마칠 수 있도록 관계기관과 적극적으로 협력해 나갈 것”이라고 말했다.

 

한편 오 부시장은 이날 회의에 앞서 이동읍 행정복지센터서 열린 주민자치위원회 월례회의에 참석해 미등록 외국인들도 백신을 맞을 수 있도록 찾아가는 접종센터 운영을 주민들에게 적극 홍보해 달라고 당부했다.

 

시는 오는 18일 포곡읍을 시작으로 양지, 이동, 남사, 원삼, 백암, 모현 등 처인구 7개 읍·면에 거주하는 만 30세 이상 외국인을 위해‘코로나19 찾아가는 접종센터’를 운영한다.
