Linda and Maurizio were the assigned Safe-Distancing Ambassadors (SDA) auditing the safe-distancing measures implemented for
’s cadre conference this afternoon. Both are tour agents by profession. Because of COVID-19, they have pivoted and adapted to become SDAs. Like the hundreds of other SDAs in our hawkers centres and markets etc., all of them have played a vital role for Singapore by keeping the community safe. The presence of a SDA, though understated and underestimated, has been a critical part of the fight against COVID-19. And their efforts are all the more significant as many found their regular jobs decimated by the virus’ impact on the economy. This is what resilience looks like. Respect. And thank you.
