KUCHING, Aug 18 — Childcare centres (taska) and kindergartens (tadika) are only allowed to operate once their respective babysitters, teachers and assistants have received two doses of Covid-19 vaccine, says Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah.

“However, I would like to remind parents that if any of their family members have contracted Covid-19, they must call the operators immediately and not send their children to the centres,” said Fatimah, who is Minister of Welfare, Community Wellbeing, Women, Family and Childhood Development.

Assuming that positive cases had been detected in the households of children attending taska or tadika, Fatimah said the existing standard operating procedures (SOPs) required the centre to be closed for sanitisation and for swab tests to be carried out if necessary.

Fatimah said taska and tadika were given the greenlight by State Disaster Management Committee to operate because there were many requests from frontliners who needed places to look after their children when they were at work.

“With more sectors opening now, the frontliners, staff of governmental and private sectors, and reporters have requested assistance for their children to be looked after,” she said after paying a visit to the fire victims of Kpg Segubang in Bata Kawa, who are temporarily housed at the SM Min Lit hall.

Fatimah said that 98 per cent of workers and assistants at taska and tadika in the state had been vaccinated, with the remaining two per cent comprised those on maternity leave and pregnant.

She thus asked that parents be honest with the operators if positive Covid-19 cases had been detected in their households to allow immediate precautionary measures to be taken.

“Parents must also use the MySejahtera app to show to operators that they have been vaccinated and also to allow contact tracing.”

Fatimah also said a support system must be provided for frontliners to look after their children while they (parents) were at work fighting and containing the Covid-19 menace.

Fatimah also urged taska and tadika operators, especially those located in Kuching, Bau, Serian and Samaharan, to exercise caution due to the current Covid-19 situation in the state. — Borneo Post

  1. Apart from going by means of tthe entrepreneurial journey
    myself, I’ve learned that being superior at a lot of isseues at tthe very same
    time is crucial to be a venture capitalist. Though, in practice there are a loot of regulatory and operational
    risks, which aare a potential downside to tthe basic enterpris model of Angellist,
    iit will be interesting to stick to the journey of this startup.
    Therefore if our interna tesms didn’t interfacce with the startup community, they would usually bbe behijnd the
    curve (Click to Tweet). Further ssouth close to the Mexico border,
    San Diego ranks as thhe fourth biggest tech
    hubb with almost 100,000 jobs, though Orange County follows closely behind.

    Software accounted for the biggest share off investments,
    with 24 percent of total angel investments in Q1
    and Q2 2013, followwed by wellness care services/medical devices (21 percent),
    industrial/energy (10 %), retail (8 percent), biotech (8 percent) and IT solutions (6 %).
    Also, though tthe quantity of businesses raising capital venture aand the quuantity of overall offers
    fepl across all sector categories in 2016 relative to 2015, the pullback was much a lot more pronounced for the Media, Consumer
    Goods and Commercial Services sectors, even though organizations in the Software and IT Hardware sectors really saw a slight uptick inn
    the quantity of capital raised.

  2. Thanks for this glorious article. One more thing tto mention is that almost all digital cameras can come quipped with some sort of
    zoom lens that enables more or less of a scene being included through ‘zooming’ in and out.
    All these changes in focusing length are usually reflected
    within the viewfinder aand on big display screen right at thee back of the actual camera.

  3. My brother suggested I might like this blog. He was totally
    right. This post actually made my day. You cann’t imagine simply how much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!

  4. One thing I’d like to touch upon is that weight loss proram fast can be carried out by the appropriate diet aand exercise.
    People’s sizae not simply affects the look, but also the entire quality of
    life. Self-esteem, major depression, health risks, as well as
    physical skills are disturbed in weight gain. It is possible
    to just make everything right and still gain. If this happens, a problem may be the perpetrator.
    While an excessive amount food and not enough workout are
    usuaally the culprit, common medical ailments and wdely
    used prescriptiions can certainly greatly enhance size.
    Many thanks for your post here.
