On Thursday, January 21, 2021, President Biden told the nation that "[W}e are in a national emergency, and it's time we treated it like one."

The current vaccine distribution system does... more »

There have been conflicting reports in the media regarding what factors are slowing down the delivery and administration of COVID-19 vaccinations. However, the overarching reality is that the pace of administering these vaccines needs to ramp up on an immediate basis. According to the American Hospital Association (AHA), in order for the U.S. to vaccinate approximately 80% of our population to reach herd immunity by June... more »

Recommendations for COVID-19 Mass Vaccination Site Setup and Operations

Many Federal, State, Tribal, Territorial and Local Jurisdictions use drive-through mass vaccination clinics (hereafter MVCs) as part of their Medical Countermeasures (MCM) Response Plan. The goal of such clinics is to serve the most people needing vaccination in the shortest amount of time feasible.

Pandemic Proof Society: Mandatory Masks on Public Transit

Coronavirus has demonstrated that the US is frighteningly vulnerable to the appearance of another pandemic. We are on track to lose more people to Coronavirus than every one of our wars individually. We have already lost more Americans than many of our wars COMBINED.

Though it is difficult to say, Coronavirus is not the worst pandemic to come. It is far gentler than what may be out there. This is frightening, because... more »

Point of Entry Screening for Coronavirus

I recently saw 4 American airports and noted that none of them performed any form of Coronavirus screening for arrivals or departures. While all airports had nearly universal mask use, ensuring passengers were relatively safe during travel, this does nothing to stop the seeding of Coronavirus in other communities, especially at events such as family dinner.

Although this can come off as a theoretical concern, it must... more »

COVID upswing coincides with 9/11

This could simply be a coincidence, but I feel I should report it.

I was looking at the daily number of new cases of COVID nationwide and I notice that it peaked on July 16, dropped to a minimum in mid-September, and since then has been rising dramatically. I did some mathematical analysis and discovered that the date the number of new case began increasing was Sept 12. This set off alarm bells in my head because it's... more »

Amendment to Presidential Proclamation 10014 to reunite families of LPRs

Consider adding an amendment and resume visa issuance to spouses of Legal Permanent Residents (LPRs). Currently there's an exemption under PP 10014 for spouses of US citizens but spouses of LPRs are not included. LPRs are taxpayers as well, and deserve to be reunited with their loved ones.

COVID-19 protocols and other conditions might be set in place and review issuance on a case by case basis as suggested for other... more »

Exempt family members from travel restrictions

Exempt family members without the age and marital status status criteria. It is easy to document at border control with official paperwork, and it allow families to be reunited with their loved ones. Quarantine and testing could be imposed.

Denmark, Norway and Austria are successfully putting these loosen measures it in place in a safe matter, so I believe that the US could be just as successful.

Develop a "headset" to emit negative ions and Far UVC light near the face and thus reduce the transmission of Covid-19.

This is a request for the Executive Branch to pursue the research, prototype development and testing of a concept for a lightweight, low cost, wearable device designed to be worn consistently and which has the potential to greatly reduce the airborne transmission of Covid-19. The proposed device would incorporate existing technologies which have already been proven to fight viruses. It would lessen the prospect of the... more »

Establish a certification system which grades the safety of distinct indoor environments against the transmission of Covid-19

This idea concerns Covid-19. Since the Covid-19 campaign no longer exists here, I have no recourse but to post this idea, and many others, in the five current campaigns which still exist here.

It appears that DHS no longer reviews ideas that are submitted on this site. I hope they will disprove this assumption by communicating with me on each of my ideas and directly address any potential which they may have.
