Masagos Zulkifli on COVID-safe interaction between children-in-care and natural parents(Updated: )
Children-in-care continued to stay in touch regularly with their natural parents even with safe distancing measures in place for households, said Social and Family Development Minister Masagos Zulkifli. Replying to a Parliamentary question on Thursday (Oct 15), he said it is important to maintain the ties between the children and their families, as this will pave the way for them to return to their natural parents. This is done through video conferencing and phone calls. As for those who could visit their natural families at home, health checks are made first to keep them safe from COVID-19.
