I thought Melissa was the slate guru now. Is she not?
Kyana gave the Slate presentation this morning as well. She gave a great overview!
Hi Jesus, Melissa is an admissions coordinator that assists with everything admissions, she rocks!
Kyana is in a new role and is our primary slate person - and while I agree that Melissa rocks and has been great with Slate, we are trying to focus Kyana full time on it
Love the poem!

Testing and contact tracing MUST be the bread and butter for any reopening process
I heard they are doing free testing not sure what the building is called going through the back road towards the NMBH to your left. I will find out and let you all know.
Margaret that is the Public Health Office. Yes, they are doing testing there and at El Centro Family Health.
Yes I believe so.
Drive-thru testing is also available at Alta Vista Hospital.
So there are a few places that is good for those who want to test for it.
Yes, you are correct Benito. I believe daily from 1-2.
Ideally, we should have a institutional approach that everyone that comes to campus needs to be cleared to come via testing. That would lower the chance and risk for those that come to campu8s
Continously clean, some people can't use mask, how is the CDC looking into that?
100% agree with Jesus.
We're developing a testing plan currently that will include contact tracing, as well as surveillance testing.
Well if you have had shots since child everyone has covid it just wakes up from what the scientists were saying this passed weekend. Like cancer everyone has these cells only some have it where it wakes up. I thought that was very interesting.
@President Minner - will be provide gloves, masks and sanitizer for staff who cannot afford it as we start the phase-back process?
Current rapid testing as 15%-40% false negative. Not sure how HU plans to address that. Masks etc., won't resolve daily contacts and touching of surfaces.
So what if some refuse to take this test? Will individuals be let go of? I'm sure I will get calls.
It doesn't help if persons are allergic to flu shots, OTC meds. We were told our company has to give out testing approval, we can't go out get tested ourselves, it is very unethical for people at work here.
I have been talking about testing too Jesus and think it is a good idea. Question that has been asked: How frequent is the testing? Daily, weekly, monthly? At some point the frequency overwhelms the system.
Yes, That is also another important part. Testing once is not enough. Everybody should be retested regularly
Yeap. I do not see it is needed to test more than biweekly and monthly should be the less frequent. That is just my gut feeling
Yes, it is finding that balance.
@President Minner - will bwe provide gloves, masks and sanitizer for staff who cannot afford it as we start the phase-back process?
We're working on purchasing HU branded face coverings.
Students are likely to be asymptomatic, or not get very ill; whereas, us "old" folks are a different story. Also, I am sure you have seen the pictures of beach parties and pool parties over Memorial Day weekend. Kids just want to have fun. It is a very elusive monster, this virus.
Okay. Thank you.
We can't really hear you...
BUT we used to think about "vulnerable" population under the notion that young ones are "invulnerable" . This is a mistaken notion. younger people (even teenavers and children) can suffer and die of COvid complication
We are recommending any type of face covering from home that is washable. This can include scarfs, bandanas, etc. - Sylvia Baca

ALSO, the virus is not static. When it can hop from host to host easily (as in among young party goers) it becomes more aggressive. We do not hear this on the media because to talk about evolution (the virus evolves more virulence) produces sucha knee jerk reaction among some people that it is nto discussed BUT having th virus run amock among the young people is very dangerous
All good points, Jesus
In place of gloves, we are also recommending that people wash their hands often and/or use hand sanitizers that will be available in buildings. There will be posters from the CDC placed around the campus providing recommended hygiene practices. — Sylvia Baca
GOod opint Sylvia. Gloves are no good if people do not change them regularly
the 57 hours stay home is working for the Nation here, we need to continue with that.
Have an awesome day everyone.
stay safe and take care all
