Dear Ministry Task Force. Mr Gan Kim Yong, Mr Lawrence Wong and Mr Ong Ye Kung.
I fully understand Singapore cannot close borders for long term. May I urge a stronger control of import cases by enforcing a stricter measure of 7-14 days SHN at dedicated facilities for all inbound travellers, regardless of nationality.1) Latest Israel data shown Pfizer efficacy wane after 5 months and is only 39% effective against Delta infection.
2) With Omicron new variant, community spread is expected to increase.
3) We are battle weary. We do not want to have another round of drastic measures with import cases again.
4) I hope MTF can review Airport/VTL safety and strengthen internal measures first.
5) Kids below 5 years old are not able to vaccinate yet.
6) With opening of borders, other new mutated virus will enter. We do not want to take 4-5-6-7th booster as long term side effects not known yet.
Border is our 1st important line of defence we must fiercely guard.
Healthcare system is our last important step of defence we must protect. It takes both hands to clap. No point asking us to vaccinate but there are increase import cases causing community spread. WHO has not declare endemic yet. We should take cautious approach to safeguard our health and safety.
If severe community outbreak again, the world will shut against us.

The Squamish Canyon Project is going to Public hearing on March 10th 2020. As a community we need your support to get our voices heard.
We have until 4pm on March 10th 2020 to submit our opposition and our signatures.
The current proposal for Phase 1 includes an 800m elevated boardwalk, 200m of canyon walkway, ticket booth, public washroom, concession stand, event space, children's play area, small merchandise area and a small stage.
Phase 2 will include the addition of 2 bridges over the canyon with additional boardwalks and lookout platforms.
As a community we are opposed to this development for the following reasons:
- Environmental Impacts - According to the ESA Mapping it has a "high" rating (https://squamish.ca/discover-squamish/maps-and-data/mobile-web-maps/esa-mapping/
- Negative impact on protected species in the local area.
- Highway entry point and leverage of the Mamquam FSR for site access (not suitable for this volume of traffic) - Has alternative been considered and the Mamquam FSR runs along "Critical Habitat" according to the Canadian Wildlife Service.
- Health impacts due to increased dust - No Silica assessment has been shared (that we are aware of)
- Proximity to residential dwellings
- Noise pollution - (Amended following the public hearing) - An "amplified" noise assessment was completed for the site itself (not traffic / road focus)
Please join our community and support our fight to ensure a full impact assessment is completed and that all alternative options are fairly considered.Read more

Petition to Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, Eric Garcetti, Los Angeles Marathon, Barbara Ferrer
We are concerned about the hundreds of thousands of people who will be traveling to Los Angeles for the 2020 Los Angeles Marathon March 8 when the new coronavirus is spreading globally.
Many large scale events all over the world have been cancelled due to the new coronavirus. For example, the French canceled the Paris Half Marathon last week in an attempt to control the further spread of the disease. In Italy, the historic Venice carnival has been canceled and various fashion shows over Milan Fashion Week did not go ahead. Tokyo Marathon urged spectators to avoid the course and limited its race to elite runners. The Arnold sports festival in Ohio will have athletes competing but there will be no spectators.
Italy had 20 confirmed new coronavirus cases on Feb 21. As of today, less than 2 weeks later, there are 3927 cases confirmed in Italy. The Los Angeles Marathon will bring 25000 runners, not counting in numerous spectators. This will significantly increase the risk of Coronavirus spreading in Los Angeles.
Please consider our petition of postponing/canceling the 2020 Los Angeles Marathon for the safety of Los Angeles residents, especially the children, the elderly, the pregnant, and people with the weak immune system and pre-existing conditions.
Thank you!Read more
On March 11, 2020, the P.E.A.R.L.S community recieved a letter that stated that a member had been potentially exposed to COVID-19. As a result to this, the WCHD has decided for no further action to be taken. Many parents, students, and staff have agreed that there should be a school closing or more action toward the matter of the potentially exposed individual(s). This is not out of greed, or laziness, but for concern for the P.E.A.R.L.S. family and Yonkers family. We decided to not take action against the school, but the WCHD as they are the ones who made the decision and the school itself has little control on whether they should close. Also, we also think that the school use a 24-hour period to thoroughly sanitize the schools. The school was said to be sanitized, but comments from teachers and observations found that most equipment, tables, carts, etc., were not moved during the weekend when the supposed sanitization occurred, making us to think that not enough effort or time was taken.
We, believe that the 24-hour period should be taken to allow students to rest and for the school to sanitize. We are not asking for multiple days or weeks for the matter, unless the situation deems it necessary. We hope that we are able to send out a message to the Yonkers community to ensure the safety of the members of P.E.A.R.L.S. Hawthorne school, and all of Yonkers. Read more

Congregational Family Meeting
First, we want to express our support of the elders of our church in this current environment. We understand that the current situation is more stressful that we can imagine. We are praying for them all, the church, and this current situation. We are thankful that they are taking steps to assure accountability.
We understand that certain issues need to be addressed in the short term, but we also want to make sure that steps are being taken to avoid issues like this in the future. We would like to share some of those thoughts with you today.
A primary concern of ours is that the church is being sold at the end of this month. Our visionary pastor, who is no longer preaching at our church, had a vision of this grand project. We are selling our church at the end of this month, and putting ourselves on a path of pursuing that vision, at a great risk and at a great cost. Is this the vision of the church or was this the vision of the former visionary pastor?
The church had put forth the idea of paying off the mortgage and becoming debt free, but this was quickly changed. This happened without much input or much communication with the congregation. Our church is now set on a path to sell our church and develop an $8 - 20 million dollar project in Somers Point.
Given the current situation, does this make sense? Do we know if we can financially afford to build this new church? Is this the direction that the current leadership and congregation want to move?
It is our belief that this project should be put on hold. We have too many risks and too many unknowns to pursue this project at this time. We believe we should pursue breaking this contract and attempt to stay in our current house of worship until we have more clarity as to the direction of the church. Some of us, our families, and our friends witnessed a painful church split in real time. The splitting of our body seems to have mitigated the need for a larger facility at this time.
In Acts 22:24-26, we saw Paul use the courts and the laws to escape getting flogged. It is our belief that we should explore all legal options, including going to court, to avoid a contract that may not be in the best interest of the church and the congregation. (25 But as they stretched him out to strap him down, Paul said to the centurion standing there, “Is it lawful for you to flog a Roman citizen without a trial?”)
Understand that we come to you in Christ and in love. We are appreciative of the efforts the elders have put forth, recognizing that they have been carrying a heavy burden. Please know that we are praying for them and want to work together to support them. We are presenting this to you because this is OUR church home and we would like to preserve it.
Respectfully, we have created this document for your consideration. We appreciate your time and efforts.

How can we as students be expected to respect a disrespectful, and rude instructor? A lot of sophomores who attend Pflugerville High School have to endure this issue everyday. Ms. Fish is our long term sub for English II, while our actual teacher is out due to a health condition. During the month that Ms. Fish has been our sub, us students, have received nothing, but a bad attitude, excessive sarcasm, condescending behavior, and a large amount of disrespect. She hardly offers any legitimate help on our assignments and rudely denies to answer any of our questions when we need assistance. She offers no help towards us students at all and the majority of us agree that she is an extremely negative addition to the classroom environment even though she’s supposedly our instructor and is suppose to help and educate us for the future.
