I thought Melissa was the slate guru now. Is she not?
April Kent
43:24
Kyana gave the Slate presentation this morning as well. She gave a great overview!
Kyana Cruz
44:54
Hi Jesus, Melissa is an admissions coordinator that assists with everything admissions, she rocks!
Jesus
45:15
ah!
Terri Law
46:59
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

Testing and contact tracing MUST be the bread and butter for any reopening process
Margaret Garduno
56:07
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.
Kimberly Blea
56:44
Margaret that is the Public Health Office. Yes, they are doing testing there and at El Centro Family Health.
Margaret Garduno
57:02
Yes I believe so.
Benito Pacheco
57:27
Drive-thru testing is also available at Alta Vista Hospital.
Margaret Garduno
57:54
So there are a few places that is good for those who want to test for it.
Kimberly Blea
57:57
Yes, you are correct Benito. I believe daily from 1-2.
Jesus
58:25
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?
Orit אורית
01:00:15
100% agree with Jesus.
Kimberly Blea
01:00:59
We're developing a testing plan currently that will include contact tracing, as well as surveillance testing.
Margaret Garduno
01:01:03
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.
Gloria Gadsden
01:01:40
@President Minner - will be provide gloves, masks and sanitizer for staff who cannot afford it as we start the phase-back process?
Orit אורית
01:03:05
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.
Margaret Garduno
01:03:27
So what if some refuse to take this test? Will individuals be let go of? I'm sure I will get calls.
carolina sherman
01:04:16
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.
Ian Williamson
01:04:16
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.
Jesus
01:04:17
Yes, That is also another important part. Testing once is not enough. Everybody should be retested regularly
Jesus
01:05:17
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
Ian Williamson
01:05:48
Yes, it is finding that balance.
Gloria Gadsden
01:06:54
@President Minner - will bwe provide gloves, masks and sanitizer for staff who cannot afford it as we start the phase-back process?
Kimberly Blea
01:08:10
We're working on purchasing HU branded face coverings.
Geri Glover
01:08:19
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.
Gloria Gadsden
01:08:46
Okay. Thank you.
Gloria Gadsden
01:09:26
We can't really hear you...
Jesus
01:09:37
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
Jesus
01:12:46
Thanks Sam!!
Orit אורית
01:12:46
All good points, Jesus
sbaca
01:12:56
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
Jesus
01:13:39
GOod opint Sylvia. Gloves are no good if people do not change them regularly
carolina sherman
01:13:40
the 57 hours stay home is working for the Nation here, we need to continue with that.
Margaret Garduno
01:13:50
Have an awesome day everyone.
Jesus
01:14:01
Cheers people
