What we have done to our children the past year is horrible. I am sorry, but attempting to sacrifice the young through lost childhoods to protect elderly and obese people has gone way too far. The suicide attempts and kids on antidepressants are worse for our future than people who lived full lives dying.
I support option B. We need to have a combined effort to social distance in any way possible to limit the spread of the virus and to not overwhelm healthcare workers and our hospital system so we can guarantee good care to the people in need.
I strongly urge the Phoenix City Council to take the most restrictive action to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 by adopting option (b) and supporting public health.
I support option B. Please keep our children, their extended families and our community safe during this time of surging COVID cases in our communities.
It is imperative to stop the spread of COVID-19. Children can become asymptomatic carriers to then pass on to immunocompromised parents or grandparents. We need to set a strong example of public health for our community and our children.
I strongly support mitigation efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We in healthcare CANNOT withstand a worsening of our case numbers - we are already operating under extreme circumstances. And our children do not need to suffer knowing their participation in sports may result in loss of lives - perhaps even the lives of their cherished grandparents who come to watch. Please protect everyone and adopt mitigation efforts. We must have the public's help to get through this surge! Thank you
I strongly ask that the Phoenix City Council choose the most restrictive action to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 by choosing option B. We must make the best decisions for public health and protect our communities.
We need to do everything in our power to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. While this would impact my children, I feel it is a necessary step given the current healthcare resource shortages that we are facing.
I strongly urge the Phoenix City Council to take the most restrictive action to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 by adopting option (b).
I strongly support this position. We must keep our communities safe and limit all potential opportunities for increased transmission of virus.
We must take immediate action to protect individuals and slow the spread of this virus. Option B.
Our club, our teams, and the Arizona Soccer Association (ASA) have proven their commitment to following health guidelines and continue to take extra precautions to protect children and their families. We urge you to keep city parks and fields open for organized sports organizations to reserve and use for organized competitions.”
IF WE STOP MASS TESTING OUR NUMBERS WOULDNT BE SO HIGH
NO MASS TESTING=NO HIGH NUMBERS
Our healthcare system is under enormous strain and current projections show Phoenix exceeding ICU and hospital bed capacity in the near term. The council needs to protect public health and cancel the use of fields be choosing option B as a means to limit community spread.
take the most restrictive action to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 by adopting option B. we need to slow the spread and save as many lives as we can with this new surge.
Strongly support. Hospitals are nearing capacity and cases are climbing at an alarming rate. Any place we can mitigate risk it is the responsible thing to do.
A sense of normalcy aside and physical activity aside, these activities are of paramount importance to the mental well being and mental development of our children.
“I am City of Phoenix resident and a parent whose child/children play on City of Phoenix fields which include (field name(s). I am writing to ask that you please keep city parks and fields open so that the children of Phoenix can continue to participate in soccer. Physical activity has been so important to the physical, social, and emotional well-being of my child and all of the children who have chosen to play soccer and in team sports overall. (continued)
We need to take the action necessary to stop the spread of COVID in our communities.
I am also the parent of young children very actively involved in youth sports. Though an advocate for the positive physical and mental benefits associated with sport, looking at the 2000+ out of state teams that will flood our city during the surge of our pandemic does not feel responsible to me so I will be supporting a temporary pause on field usage. Shortly into 2021, if we act responsibly now, our children will return to sport in a manner that is both safe and responsible.
I support option B
