The Anglican Church yesterday asked the government why the blanket ban remains on opening churches and places of worship while allowing schools, clubs, gymnasiums, restaurants and cinemas to open subject to certain restrictions.

The Church in a statement issued by the Bishop of Kurunegala Rt. Rev. Keerthisiri Fernando Presiding Bishop of the Church of Ceylon and Bishop of Colombo Rt. Reverend Dushantha Rodrigo said the regulation lacks a rational basis and is disproportionate and discriminatory against minority religions in particular.

Full Statement: The Church of Ceylon (The Anglican Church of Sri Lanka) expresses deep concern over the anomalies and inconsistencies in recently released COVID and public health regulations.

The regulations allow the opening of schools, clubs, gymnasiums, restaurants, cinemas and various other entities subject to certain restrictions, but maintains an almost blanket ban on opening churches and places of religious practice. In our opinion, this lacks a rational basis, is arbitrary, disproportionate and discriminates against minority religions in particular.

If students can congregate in classrooms; people engaged in sports and recreation gather in small places and share equipment; whether people can exercise in confined, air-conditioned spaces or watch movies and other forms of entertainment in closed, air-conditioned auditoriums; how can one consider that a gathering of people for an hour or two in a church or similar building for community worship subject to the requirements of social distancing, limited numbers and other standard safety precautions, poses a risk to public health ?

The illogical and unreasonable restrictions enacted in the recent set of guidelines therefore violate the rights of members of our Church as well as the rights of many other people of all faiths who have been unreasonably denied the right to manifest their freedom of religion and freedom. conviction. in worship, observance, practice and teaching in accordance with Article 14 (1) e of the Constitution.

We are forced to publish this statement because several letters to the competent authorities requesting clarification on this matter have not been answered. We recognize the need to restrict certain activities in the interest of public health to deal with the pandemic. However, such restrictions cannot be arbitrary and discriminatory in effect and must be reasonable and have a public health justification.

We call on the government to revise its health guidelines to allow religious worship subject to general social distancing restrictions, numbers based on a percentage of full capacity, and other relevant health and safety protocols.

Only listed companies targeted to raise 114 billion rupees

By Shamindra Ferdinando

Finance Minister Basil Rajapaksa said his proposals to impose a 25% retroactive surtax on listed persons or companies that earned more than Rs 2 billion in 2020/2021 and to increase VAT (value added tax) at 18% from the current 15% would not be abandoned.

Appearing on ‘Salakuna’, a weekly political show broadcast Monday night live on ‘Hiru’ FM Rajapaksa stressed that he would not bow to pressure from those affected by his proposals. In response to Chamuditha Samarawickrema, presenter of ‘Hiru’, the FM said only President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa and the Cabinet could intervene.

FM Rajapaksa said he had discussed the issue with the Chambers and had not opposed the imposition of the surcharge for a year or two due to the devastation caused by the pandemic, although they were be opposed to random changes in taxes.

However, companies that had not been listed on the Colombo Stock Exchange were excluded from the tax net despite being also rich in cash, much to the surprise of the business sector.

Rajapaksa urged the media not to engage in a campaign to pressure the government to remove the proposals.

Introducing the budget for 2022, Minister Rajapaksa proposed (a) a one-time 25% surtax on persons or businesses with taxable income exceeding 2,000 million rupees for the 2020/2021 tax year. The government planned to recover Rs 100 billion from this tax and (b) VAT on banks and financial service providers should be increased from 15 percent to 18 percent. Minister Rajapaksa stressed that this tax should be paid monthly from January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022 and not passed on to customers. The government expected to raise 14 billion rupees through the tax.

When some members of the opposition interrupted Minister Rajapaksa immediately after announcing the 25 percent surtax on a selected group of companies, the FM said it would like to see who represented the interests of the targeted companies.

The Inland Revenue Department indicates that the following companies are likely to be subject to the proposed single tax surcharge: LOLC Holdings (Rs. 23,075 mins), Commercial Bank (Rs. 16,940 mins), Ceylon Tobacco (Rs. 15,578 mn), ExpoLanka Holdings (Rs. 14,830 mn), HNB (Rs. 14,096 mn), Dialog Axiata (Rs. 12,034 mn), Ceylinco Insurance (Rs. 8,880 mn), Sampath Bank (Rs. 8,442 mn) , Vallibel One (Rs. 8,117 mins), Sri Lanka Telecom (Rs. 7,880), Hayleys (Rs. 7,637 mins), Distilleries Company of Sri Lanka (Rs. 6,962 mins), LB Finnace (Rs. 6,807 mins), Royal Ceramics Lanka (Rs. 6 135 mins), Central Finance Company (Rs. 5,544 mins), Tokyo Cement Company (Lanka) (5 Rs. 425 mins), People’s Leasing and Finance (Rs. 5,295 mins) , Dipped Products (Rs. 5,140mn), National Development Bank (Rs. 5,117mn), John Keells Holdings (Rs. 5,026), Carson Cumberbatch (Rs. 4,804mn), Richard Pieris and Company (Rs. 4 680 mins), Melstacorp (Rs. 4,425 mins), LOLC Finnace (Rs. 4,365 mins), Nations Trust Bank (Rs. 4,055 mins), Hemas Holdings (Rs. 3,621 mins), Bukit Darah (Rs. 3,541 mins), Cargills (Ceylon) (Rs. 3,481 mins), CIC Holdings (Rs. 3,132 mins), Haycarb (Rs. 3,047), SeylanBank (Rs 3,039 mins) .), Lanka Walltiles (Rs. 2,960mn), Nestlé Lanka (Rs. 2,947mn), DFCC Bank (Rs. 2,745), Ceylon Guardian Investment Trust (Rs. 2,721mn), Citizens Development Business Finance (Rs. . 2,554), Lanka Tiles (Rs. 2,475 mins), Lion Brewery Ceylon (Rs. 2,471 mins), Singer Sri Lanka (Rs. 2,452 mins), Ceylon Cold Stores (Rs. 2,334), CT Holdings (Rs 2,288 mins), Chevron Lubricants Lanka (Rs 2,225 mins), Commercial Leasing and Finance (Rs. 2,216 mins), Access Engineering (Rs 2,173 mins), Teejay Lanka (Rs 2,139 mins), Pan Asia Banking Corporation (Rs. 2,048) and Commercial Credit and Finance (Rs 2,005).

Former Samagi banker and lawmaker Jana Balavegaya Eran Wickremaratne strongly opposes the budget proposal. Asked about his position on FM Basil Rajapaksa’s decision and whether the latest proposal is similar to the tax imposed by the UNP but not enforced, MP Wickremaratne told The Island: “The private sector is not averse to paying taxes. They want a predictable tax environment so that they can plan and execute business plans. A single tax is arbitrary and unpredictable. It destroys business confidence. This weakens planning as well as the confidence of foreign investors in the country.

Referring to the abolition of the one-time super earnings tax declared in 2015 but never implemented, SJB legislator Dr Harsha de Silva stressed that two wrongs do not do a good.

Sources said the cash-strapped government could also have targeted unlisted companies. However, policymakers had conveniently restricted the target group from the listed group.

Responding to questions from “Salakuna,” Minister Rajapaksha strongly defended the sharp tax cuts imposed immediately after the change of government in 2019. The minister said a sharp tax cut saved many private companies, including the one which employed the team of journalists “Salakuna”. The minister said so when Chamuditha Samarawickrema claimed that the government had caused unnecessary revenue problems by reducing a range of taxes amounting to well over Rs. 500 billion.

While Muslim worshipers are delighted to be able to attend Friday prayers again once mosques, suraus and religious halls open to the public on November 19, they urge their congregations to follow standard operating procedures (SOPs) and remain cautious.

Suri Seri Begawan Mosque Youth Manager Raja Pengiran Anak Damit in Kampong Manggis Madang Haji Ismail bin Haji Mohamad said he was grateful for the reopenings, but also urged members of the congregation present at the prayers Friday and day to observe the SOPs.

He also reminded worshipers to book their slots as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

Other protocols to follow include bringing ID cards, performing home ablutions, and checking that their BruHealth code is green or yellow.

Devotees attending prayers should also be fully immunized, wear face masks, bring prayer rugs, and practice social distancing, including avoiding speaking or shaking hands with other members of the congregation.

Once the prayers are over, they should vacate the premises immediately. Speaking to the Bulletin, Ahmad Fadzillah said that while everyone is happy to offer Friday prayers or daily prayers at the mosque, they should also pay attention to cleanliness when they visit.

“We will also have to follow the instructions of frontline soldiers deployed in mosques to ensure security,” he said.

Meanwhile, Haji Isa is grateful to Allah the Almighty for once again being able to perform Friday prayers in a mosque.

He urged his fellow worshipers to cooperate in adhering to the guidelines.

“As we look forward to visiting mosques starting this Friday, let us remember that we should always express our gratitude for being able to return to the house of Allah the Almighty,” adding that the Friday prayer is a time to pray together for Allah the Almighty to remove the deadly virus from the world.

The Environment Minister said he was following health guidelines at all times after receiving different results in two tests for Covid.

Eamon Ryan added that he was aware of the perception that different rules applied to ministers after attending the Cop26 climate change conference in Glasgow on Monday.

On Saturday the leader of the Green Party announced he had canceled his visit to Glasgow after testing positive for the coronavirus, but on Sunday he said a second test gave a negative result and said he would do the trip.

Speaking to media in Glasgow, Mr Ryan said he passed the first test on Friday.

He added: “It was pretty standard. On Saturday I got the text saying you’re positive. I went home and followed all the protocols.

“The main thing I had to work on was my contact tracing. I contacted the Taoiseach, the Tánaiste.

“After that, the HSE contacted my private secretary. The details of the first test weren’t conclusive, even under these circumstances you get a positive reading.

“It’s standard to have a second test, especially in circumstances where you weren’t symptomatic and were only getting the test as part of a routine trip.

“So I did a test that night and the next morning it came back negative.

“I followed the medical advice to the end. I didn’t have to isolate myself. If I had ignored this advice, I would have been against the health advice. The health advice was to go about your business as usual. That’s what I did.

When asked if he was aware of the perception that there was one rule for government figures and another for others, he replied, “I am very aware of this. But the only thing I could do was follow the health advice, follow the protocols, do what the HSE told me.

“I kept in touch with the Taoiseach and the Tánaiste and followed the protocols. So I said why shouldn’t I travel? I would not take the advice of the HSE.

Earlier, the HSE said repeated PCR testing could be recommended on a positive result “in certain cases” following confusion in the public over Mr Ryan’s Covid status.

A spokeswoman for the HSE said Monday: “In some cases, when clinically indicated, repeat testing may be recommended for an individual.” She said this was “generally based” on a discussion between the testing lab and the person requesting the test.

She said this “takes into account a number of factors, such as the lab result itself, including any viral targets detected, etc., the reason for the test and the condition of the person doing the test. “she said.

The spokesperson said a repeat test can be scheduled through the HSE Testing and Trace program, with a review of the results informing that person’s advice.

However, these tips do not appear to be on the HSE website for the general public. This advises people with a positive result to self-isolate and begin the process of finding contracts.

According to the website, only people whose result was “undetermined, invalid or inhibitory result” are asked to take a second test to confirm their infection status.

Meanwhile, Mr Ryan said he believed the Cop26 conference was about creating ‘momentum for action’.

He said: “John Kerry (the US climate envoy) said today that it was the week that decided the decade – I thought it was good.

“I feel like last week has gone relatively well, in terms of part of the methane pledge and the deforestation pledge.

“I think this cop is about creating momentum for action and creating transparency and urgency for action.”

Mr Ryan said Ireland will commit € 10 million next year to the International Adaptation Fund.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: To describe children’s adherence to four preventive health guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic and to study the correlates of adherence at the caregiver level.

METHOD: Two hundred and thirty-six caregivers (75% women) of children aged 6 to 12 (Mage = 8 years; 53% of men living in the United States assessed children’s adherence to four preventive health guidelines between 10/16/2020 and 11/14/2020. Caregivers also assessed the perceived importance of each directive in limiting the spread of the virus and the perceived difficulty in achieving compliance from children.

RESULTS: Child adherence was highest for mask wear (median [Mdn] = 96%) and hand hygiene (Mdn = 95%). Compliance with social distancing guidelines was lower. Mdn’s respect for social distancing with family outside the household was 80%, and Mdn’s respect for social distancing with friends was 72%. Additionally, for each of the four guidelines, less than half of the sample reported 100% adherence (range = 20% to 43%). Adherence was positively associated with caregivers’ perceptions of the importance of a given behavior in limiting the spread of the virus (rs = 0.38-0.62) and negatively associated with the perceived difficulty in obtaining the child’s adhesion (rs = -.37-.25).

DISCUSSION: Current results indicate that parents perceive children’s adherence to social distancing to be more difficult than children’s adherence to mask wear or hand hygiene. Lower perceptions of the importance of caregiver behavior and greater perceived difficulty in achieving child compliance were associated with lower compliance with all tasks. Brief, targeted interventions (e.g. motivational interviews, parenting behavior management training) may be well suited to improve caregivers’ perceptions of the value of behavior, while addressing behavioral issues that interfere with adherence. of the child.

Travel to Dubai: Are you planning to travel to Dubai? Indians have sought to travel abroad after being locked away at home due to the pandemic for a long time. Dubai is among the favorite destinations for many Indians, whether for work or leisure, not least due to its proximity and given the fact that Expo 2020 as well as many cricket tournaments are currently taking place in the city. Emirati, the journey to the other nation is more than ever. Still, the pandemic is not yet dead and the UAE, which has succeeded in keeping the virus under control to a large extent now, has strict protocols in place for people traveling to the country.

So here’s what you need to know and what to expect when traveling to the other country amid current COVID-19 guidelines.

Once all documents like passport, visa and airline tickets are in order, travelers must undergo a COVID-19 RT-PCR test within 48 hours before the time of departure. The report should be printed and handy, as it is checked by airlines as well as during immigration checks. But this is not the only report. Within 6 hours before the departure time, travelers must undergo a rapid PCR test at the airport in India. This test costs between Rs 3,900 and Rs 4,500 and a printed report can be obtained from dedicated kiosks at the airport within an hour of the test.

However, passengers should be aware that these tests take a long time due to the long queues and, therefore, they should arrive at the airport well in advance to be able to take the test within 6 hours. following the departure, but also have sufficient time. proceed with registration, immigration and security checks.

This report, coupled with the RT-PCR test report performed within 48 hours of departure, is verified at airline check-in kiosks, and even immigration control staff can request these reports. These tests must also be presented to airline staff upon boarding.

But that’s not where the testing ends. Once travelers have arrived at Dubai Airport, they are required to undergo another COVID-19 PCR test at the airport itself. The report of this test is usually sent out within five to six hours, during which time passengers must remain in isolation at the hotel. If this test turns out to be positive, travelers are required to self-quarantine in accordance with Dubai Health Authority guidelines.

When arriving in India as well, a passenger must be tested within 48 hours of departure and this report is verified by airlines at the check-in kiosk as well as upon boarding the flight.

Upon arrival in India, the airport can either require passengers to undergo another test or order them to remain under observation for 14 days to check for any symptoms of COVID-19.

October-November is the dangerous time to spread the Covid-19, according to the Prime Minister

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday called on the entire population to maintain the health protocol, in particular the wearing of masks, because the coronavirus could strike the country again as winter approaches.

“We see that all the countries of the world have experienced the coronavirus during the winter,” she said.

Referring to the upward trend of Covid-19 in the United States, England and Europe during winter, the Prime Minister called on all to be careful of colds and coughs as winter approaches .

“I call on all of Bangladesh to be careful because the cold and cough can hit them as winter knocks on the door,” she added.

The Prime Minister said this while receiving 2,645,000 blankets for the poor from the Bangladesh Association of Bank (BAB) for his relief before the winter season.

She joined the blanket handover ceremony held at the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) from her official residence in Ganabhaban in the capital.

On behalf of the Prime Minister, his Principal Secretary, Dr Ahmad Kaikaus, received the blankets and a check for 10 lakh Tk for the Prime Minister’s Relief and Welfare Fund from 37 private banks.

The Prime Minister also called on the authorities concerned to launch a massive campaign across the country to raise awareness about the upsurge in Covid-19 infection during the winter.

She again assured that all people eligible for vaccination according to the WHO would be vaccinated by the middle of next year.

Vaccination of schoolchildren will start in a day or two, she said, adding that around eight million people would receive the second dose on Thursday as part of the mass vaccination marking the prime minister’s 75th birthday.

Describing October and November as the dangerous time to spread Covid-19, the Prime Minister urged everyone to remain cautious during the period, even after receiving the blows from Covid-19.

She also urged everyone to take fruits and foods fortified with vitamin C while following health guidelines to stay protected against the deadly virus.

The prime minister said his government was able to keep the country’s economy running during the coronavirus despite stagnation around the world due to the pandemic.

She said her government’s goal is to reduce poverty and increase the purchasing capacity of the local population, which will help expand markets and boost trade and commerce.

Sheikh Hasina said his government has opened up the country’s bank, insurance and other private sector organizations, as these become powerful like public organizations and can contribute to the development of the people and the nation.

She said her government would build a developed and prosperous Bangladesh as envisioned by the father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

The Prime Minister praised representatives of private banks for donating the blankets and money to the poor, ensuring that the poor will get what they gave.

She said, “You are always moving forward to help the poor.

BAB Chairman Nazrul Islam Majumder spoke at the ceremony while representatives from other banks were also in attendance.

SKOKE, IL – Village officials have designated Skokie’s Halloween times from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. this year.

Cheaters were encouraged not to ring the doorbell before or after these hours and to limit treats to homes with porch lights on.

The village health service staff suggested that residents consider the Halloween 2021 Health and Safety Recommendations.

Public health officials suggest that children and others dressing up for Halloween incorporate a face mask into the costume, but avoid wearing a costume mask over a mask to prevent the spread of COVID-19 due to the risk that it prevents breakage.

IDPH orientation for neighborhood tips includes the following:

Outdoor areas are safer for trick-or-treating than closed indoor areas, such as apartment buildings, which pose a greater risk of transmission. It is strongly recommended to make treats in small groups for a short time at each door, as opposed to large groups. If outdoor trick-or-treating isn’t possible, there are steps people can take to make indoor trick-or-treat safer. Guests indoors should open doors and windows as much as possible to promote increased ventilation, and masks should be worn properly. Hand washing is important, especially for those who distribute and receive treats.

Households who did not want treats coming to their door were encouraged to turn off their exterior lights or post signs on their doors informing visitors that they are not participating.

The day before Halloween night, 45 local businesses will be handing out candy and other surprises in downtown Skokie Trick-or-Treat.

Music from a DJ is scheduled at the southeast corner of Lincoln Avenue and Oakton Street, with local businesses showcasing more than 300 Halloween-themed posts designed by students at Skokie School District 69.

Official candy bags are available the week of October 25 or the day of the event at Al’s Cycle Shop, Crafty Beaver Home Center, Edward Jones Investments, Indigo Home Remodeling, Law Offices of Naheed Amdani, Mini-Man Monkey Brains, Skokie Chamber of Commerce or Swift Child Care Center, according to an announcement from village staff.
