Last week of phase 2, so community cases will have miracle to drop. 😅 If not next week how?

Thinking when will gahment announce what will happen from 14 Jun? 🤔 Thurs or Fri?

My guess is Wed or Thurs.

They need to give FnB businesses time to react for resuming eat-in. Includes increasing staffing levels, re-configuring table arrangement and also ordering more supplies. So a few working days will be needed.

really hope it will ease up and we can have dine in by next week even in small numbers ..

also good for the smaller businesses ..

but the worry always is that we continue to still have all these illegal ktv gatherings and blatant disregard of distancing rules .. catch all of them and let them contribute to nation building!

So when they announced no dine-in measure that time, how many days in advance before it kicks in ah?  So roughly we should know when they will announced the new measures from 14 Jun this time lo. Actually other than F&B business, companies also need to react and inform their staff on the wfh measure. My boss is waiting for the gahment announcement to decide on the wfh arrangement next week. [rolleyes]

I would guess high chance they will allowed dine-in next week since they always say our community cases are very stable?! Lol.

Classic over the top Hollywood cheese, but rolling it out during the middle of the same actual pandemic is an interesting touch...

Some of the elements are a little too relatable.

Lockdown week number 213?

100% WFH in 2024?

TT app to have a temperature sensor in 2022?

Stay inside.

Stay safe, sane & sanitised.

You think they will immediately allow Return-To-Office?

My take is 

 

Default - WFH

Dine-in: 4-5 pax

The problem so far has been reliance on one technology. Whilst it was good we eventually got the Moderna option to Pfizer, it's almost identical and doesn't actually provide that "Plan B" required.

Since the beginning, work should have been to approve two different technologies.

Some mistakes keep repeating themselves isn't it?

Anyone in construction?

Construction supplies?

 

Heres some stupidity:

 

Dear Sir,

 

Recently, the full implementation of the RRT swab tests for all personnels including delivery personnels has taken effect. There was so hiccups earlier due to BCA not opening up applications for non construction trades to apply. It has since been resolved and all logistics companies are complying.


However, we received news of an absurd new pilot program where selected sites requires additional on-site testing of delivery persons. This is simply inhumane.

Already, time is wasted on the bi-weekly RRT, to queue and get one swabbed takes an average of 2 hours. Okay, fine, we follow as we understand its necessary and since all workers living in dormitories are going through this.

But its absurd to even suggest one to get a swab test done again before entering a construction site. The same delivery guy needs to deliver say 5 to 10 sites everyday. To do the same amount of swab test a day is simply insane, crazy.

All our drivers threaten to quit and perhaps become a Grab Food or Panda delivery person. Why be subjected to being treated so lowly, like beggars or worse an animal. Imagine being swab test everyday, or worse every 5 times, 10 times a day. I think by the 3rd or 4th time, the drivers would need a new nose job.

We will not adhere to such nonsense scheme and we suggest BCA to scrap this pilot trial. To adhere to this trial means all companies think this is a good idea, supporting this measures,  but its the worse idea ever.

Meanwhile for all such pilot sites, no deliveries of goods will be arranged to these sites.

Imagine, to go to every hawker center, every shopping malls, to have a swab test on everyone entering these places. What chaos will it causes.

 

Feedback to BCA.

 

Those who are in this trade should know.

 

I send this feedback thru bca feedback online.

 

See any replies.

SCMP - Coronavirus mutated 32 times inside South African HIV-positive woman over course of seven months

A while ago I read scientists speculated the UK variant "alpha" plausibly originated from a similar immunocomprised patient zero somewhere, as opposed through the "regular" self selection mutation mechanism in the population.

In other words, immunocompromised people can act as a sort of "mutation superspreader".

Most immunocompromised people would already be under some sort of care or surveillance, but looks like they deserve special attention in a viral pandemic.

That's my guess as well, if they going to extend, no grace period required, so if you don't hear anything by Fri, means extending..

Something has to be announced soon.

In Sg, there is no such thing as extend without announcement.
