“Social Distancing… To minimize the risk of COVID-19 spreading in the community, we all need to work together to intensify measures on social distancing. The measures taken by the Government to achieve this include, suspension of classes; work-from-home arrangement for some civil servants; suspension of some public services; and cancellation of Government events.
Members of the public are advised strongly to reduce social contact to protect themselves and others: stay at home as far as possible; stay away from crowded places; work from home if feasible; avoid social gatherings; do not shake hands when meeting other people; and avoid meal gatherings.
Enterprises are also appealed to make flexible work arrangement for employees to tie in with the Government strategies to fight the disease.” Quoted this from government website.
As church we have to comply to what the government requires from us. – But this does not mean that our service and worship with the Lord will stop. This is the moment to stay strong and holding on to the promises of God because he who promise is faithful. (Hebrews 10:23).
