Prompts for CAG to answer as a community:1. What did we learn about our collective ability to respond to COVID?2. What would we do differently/better this year?3. What questions do you have about our response going forward?
Jennifer Cabán, SSA

Would recommend amending day care to early learning facilities, child care, etc. Day care is not a term really utilized in the field. Thank you!
Gabriela Galicia

Also the cost of home tests in stores is high $23.99 in store.

Anecdotal reports today is that the WalMart site has them at $17.98 with 2-day delivery.

Biden Administration is making an effort to require insurance companies to pay for home tests
Arlene Nehring

Is there a forecast on the availability of test kits for our local school districts?
Carla Keener
01:29:45
ACOE had test kits they were distributing, I believe.
Neetu Balram
01:30:38
The County Office of Education distributed test kits to school districts, charters and private schools
Neetu Balram
01:32:08
Surplus test kits were distributed to early childhood education network orgs
Arlene Nehring
01:32:42
Understood. Are those available in sufficient number to get us through the surge? My understanding is that only enough for a week were distributed.

01:33:31
It seems that some districts strategy is one of testing, so they would need multiple weeks of test kits in order to support their needs.
Jennifer Cabán, SSA
01:33:35
Just to note, the ones for early childhood providers were just received today by resource and referral agencies. A communication will go out to the provider network soon.
Aneeka Chaudhry, HCSA
01:34:00
I believe ACOE will get additional supply as State has more
Jennifer Cabán, SSA
01:34:39
State is providing resource & referral agencies will receive additional kits and surgical masks towards the end of the month.
Neetu Balram
01:34:39
Some school districts are part of the state's testing pilot. others have regular testing. school districts that are seeking testing are able to access state resources. county office of ed and the county can help make that connection
Kim Rhoads

Johnson and Johnson is no longer a recommended vaccine. CDPH discussing stopping purchasing

Thanks Kim!
Carla Keener

I heard that Sonoma County had lowered the #s considered safe for large gatherings, both inside and outdoors. Are we looking at something similar here?
Arlene Nehring

Sorry Emergency Medical Services (EMS)!
Mary Lou Breslin
01:40:51
A quick question for Donata: How long does it take to get a home visit for vaccination or testing after a request is made? Thanks.
Neetu Balram
01:40:57
Not at this time. Given how widespread COVID-19 is, a similar order would not significantly impact the trajectory of the pandemic in Alameda County.
Winny Knowles
01:41:11
The fact that the state has changed the quarantine requirement for hospital nurses at the bedside when they are infected is unacceptable in my opinion when they are infected with COVID-19 as a means of providing staff.
Nicholas Moss
01:41:31
We are not planning to restrict gatherings using legal orders at this time
