Would pooled testing be effective in this scenario?
Golds !

Can someone pls explain exactly what areas we are looking at for the yellow zone (pr all zones) threshold? Does the term community apply to Bronxville? And is it the Village specifically or the 10708 zip code? W respect to the 2.5% is that based on a larger region or the same “community”? And, this is for Ruth Walter - is there a place we can track the rate on a daily basis? We can see the update on cases, but not the actual rate. Thanks very much.

On the NYS site https://forward.ny.gov/percentage-positive-results-county-dashboard, it looks like Westchester County has 4.1% rolling 7 day average for percentage of positive COVID tests. Is another number being used for the yellow zone?

do the students tested have to be a range of different age groups

another question for Dr. Montesano. Was there thought to going virtual for the week following Thanksgiving in light of the risk returning college students bring to their families? Many schools in the county are opting to go virtual to be safe.

PCR tests are most reliable. Thank you for following the science and the county guidelines!
kristinmsmith
50:02
Are we notified of every positive case in the school?
Eugénie Harrison
50:21
how many cases in total has the school had?
Legislator Ruth Walter
50:42
Responding to Golds: if you heard CE Latimer, he will advocate for specific communities as he understands our different communities.
Eugénie Harrison
50:49
thank you Dr Kelly
Kate Sallada
52:23
if you're waiting for a mandatory pcr test because of symptoms can you be allowed into remote learning even if it's less than 48 hours as results are unpredictable and can be promised in 48 hours and not be resulted for over 72?
WD
52:34
This is for Dr Kelly, While one of the kids is waiting for the PCR test results which can take up to 3-5 days, could the other siblings attend school?
Roy Montesano
54:02
Sorry trying again Re: micro cluster memo https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EzNuTaysNBS-01iArweig5e6QVVussfk/view?usp=sharing
Phil Murphy

@WD I got a PCR yesterday (asymptomatic, negative) and the results came back in 24 hrs. Not sure if typical.
Thomas
56:15
Phil - where did you get tested with such fast turnaround time? 24 hours is good
Rachel Kelly
56:21
Siblings staying home while awaiting their sibling’s test results would depend on the circumstances. Please reach out to me or the nurses office if this scenario arises so we can ask specific questions and determine next best steps. Thank you.

@Thomas I got tested at the tent at Lawrence Hospital. It was ordered by my MD prior to a visit. Not sure if you can walk in there or not.
Kate Sallada
57:50
Lawrence testing tent is Rx only unfortunately
Rachel Kelly
58:02
My understanding is that “going remote” due to a quarantine or awaiting test results requires a 24 hour notice - Tricia can confirm that for us.
Karina Wyllie
58:13
@thomas city md does the rapid test now
Karina Wyllie
58:33
15 mins results
Tricia Murray
58:40
Yes, we ask that you give us 24 hours notice for remote instruction.
Elissa Fory
59:56
My kids and I had a cold at the beginning of Oct - all COVID PCRs negative thank goodness - our test results (all tests done the same day thru NYS) were staggered apart by several days - the school and teachers were very understanding and worked with us on work.
Rachel Kelly
01:00:12
Four students and one employee have tested positive (3 of the 4 students were in one family) since we opened in September.
amy mouton krause
01:00:15
City MD has rapid test in 15 mins but if negative and you have any covid symptoms, they recommend a PCR which took 4 days.
Nora L
01:00:25
City MD’s rapid test results are not reliable. So many false positives.
Elissa Fory
01:01:13
There is publicly available information on schools and positivity rates thru NY state. To Eugenie and Kristin: Check out this public information from New York State. https://schoolcovidreportcard.health.ny.gov/#/hom
WD
01:01:31
Took one of my kids to PM Pediatrics last week and PCR result took 3 full days and we were told all of us should quarantine until it came back negative. So, We had to keep the other siblings at home while waiting for the result so was wondering what was our school’s protocol
Karina Wyllie
01:03:17
thank you Dr vastola for your amazing work and dedication!
Karina Wyllie
01:03:26
you are amazing 🙏🏼
Rachel Kelly
01:03:30
Certainly if any family member presents with a symptom or has had close contact with a positive case, all family members should quarantine while awaiting test results. Hope that helps clarify!
Tara Saridakis
01:03:41
Thank you Dr Vastola!
Joyce Vastola
01:04:02
You are welcome!
Joyce Vastola
01:07:58
It was delicious thank you!
Sue Kim Griffin
01:08:05
for Tricia: In the case of remote learning, has the school considered doing a shortened virtual day, especially for the youngest students in kindergarten?
Tricia Murray
01:11:19
We've talked about giving K-2 more breaks during the day, time off of the screen and time to more around. However, we would like to mimic the school day as much as possible.
Maura & Mike Herman
01:12:14
Thank you, Alanna! Great cause and effort.
Karina Wyllie
01:12:35
so true!!! 🙏🏼❤️
Sue Kim Griffin
01:12:49
tricia - thank you for thinking of the needs of our youngest learners. more breaks/more off-screen time to move would be very helpful
Karina Wyllie
