40 Things You Should Never Touch Due to Coronavirus

Touching, like the other five senses, used to be effortless and one of life's great pleasures. Now, with the threat of coronavirus (COVID-19), your fingers have become a time bomb. The trigger: a once-innocent delivery box or elevator button, which could cary deadly viral particles.

Whatever you do, avoid this list of 40 things you should never touch and keep coronavirus at bay. Then share it with someone you've been meaning to get in touch with.

Does anyone know about this initiative?
https://covidtutoringsupport.weebly.com/

It sounds like a worthy cause, to support underprivileged students with tutoring during this time of HBL. But they don't say anything about themselves! And they ask for info from potential volunteers and participants. My daughter's friend forwarded it to her, but doesnt know who is behind this. Anyone with info?

Not endorsed by MOE I think. Heard some P6 teachers using it to continue lessons because that’s really the most efficient, easy & effective way to communicate the lesson. PSLE still continuing, impossible to finish teaching if by written to-and-fro only.

I can't imagine how students have HBL.
This has never ever happened.

Would there be students have no tools at home to do so?

I guess most of us will have at least one computer/laptop at home. Kids can share it with siblings/parents. and I think kids need one can let the school knows...

Was there HBL during SARS school closure?

The HBL is thru the official MOE platform called SLS (Student Learning Space). It’s just a website to login and then can see all the assignments given by the subject teachers.

If any offline assignments like read textbook certain chapter & do workbook certain chapter, parents will receive the notification letter via Parents Gateway HP app. This app was compulsory must be downloaded by Jan 2020 I think.
