Singapore — A concerned parent feels that schools are not yet a safe place for kids and called on other like-minded parents. They continually received MOH’s Health Risk Warning (HRW) for 7-day ART monitoring.

In a Facebook public group, Complaint Singapore, Stephen Chua expressed his concern for his two kids going to school since he received a Health Risk Warning (HRW) for both his kids from different schools. In his post, he called on other parents who think the same.

He asked, “Anyone agrees with me that school is also not a safe place now to send the kids. Cos i receive twice 7-day warning alert from MOH in january for both my school children.”

A number of the parents in the group agreed with Mr Chua. They ranted on how some citizens tested positive and yet were not required to be quarantined. Most parents pushed on teaching children proper hygiene as it would help combat other types of hand, foot, and mouth diseases.

Tino Buranasilapin, commented, “Got COVID left and right in schools. Frankly they should change it to online. It’s very dangerous and they have to disinfect the classes every time there’s covid”

Some parents believe that nowhere is safe due to the Omicron surge.

Dila Nabila offered her advice, saying, “Yup school is not a safe place and you can choose to let your child stay at home until the end of hrw date. Teach your child to mask up, follow sdm and maintain their hygiene. Not only for covid, even for other diseases like hfmd.”

The Ministry of Health (MOH) in their report stated that they have been closely monitoring the omicron cases and that booster shots are vital riding through this wave.

MOH advised citizens compliance and support, “We seek the continued cooperation and support of all in complying with the adjusted protocols and measures as we pave the way to living with COVID-19.” /TISG
