do the maps disaggregate data by age and race?
Brie Hunt - IMPH
39:19
Right now race and ethnicity data are only available publicly at the state level
knochejw
39:40
The maps do not disaggregate data by age and race. Demographic data is available here: https://scdhec.gov/infectious-diseases/viruses/coronavirus-disease-2019-covid-19/sc-demographic-data-covid-19
Nancy Lee
40:45
To follow-up on the question Tamika posed, what additional information is available? Age, race, gender, any additional socioeconomic data points that might help us in our support throughout communities?
Mamie Nicholson
41:34
If you receive a positive test result but have no symptoms, should you still quarantine for 14 days and should you be re-tested at the end of 14 days.
Brannon Traxler
41:54
Age, race, ethnicity, gender, chronic diseases
knochejw
42:16
Yes, a positive test result in an asymptomatic person requires isolation for 10 day. Retesting is not required.
Bunnelle Front Desk
42:59
The death count says 446 with COVID 19. Does that mean those 446 died from the virus specifically, or died with a positive test result?
knochejw
43:20
Because it can take up to 14 days for someone to develop symptoms if they were a close contact of a case, the quarantine period for the close contact is usually 14 days.
Brannon Traxler
43:57
446 who died also had tested positive for COVID-19 and were either reported to DHEC by the provider as a COVID-19-related death and/or included COVID-19 on death certificate
Chris Steed
44:43
Based on Dr. Duwve's statement, does it mean it will take 2-4 weeks to see if poor social distancing compliance over memorial day weekend (like Myrtle Beach) will impact transmission?
Brannon Traxler
45:54
Chris- Yes, that is correct
Brie Hunt - IMPH
46:00
What is the gender breakdown of people who have been tested (regardless of outcome of testing)
knochejw
47:09
Brie-we don't have that data readily available
jjais
47:55
Jane Jasien-St. Christopher's Children
Paige Knowlson
48:22
DHEC has approved elective testing for individuals working in nursing facilities. Will the same be true for employees of direct support/care agencies? We will need to return to 1:1 supervision/care for individuals with medical complexities and want to ensure all employees test negative before returning to work
Brie Hunt - IMPH
48:31
So there is no antibody test that predicts future immunity?
knochejw
49:21
Brie, we do not know enough to say whether a positive antibody test provides long term immunity
Amy
51:42
What is the cost to receive a test?
knochejw
52:33
Amy, there should be no cost associated with being tested at a DHEC site or privately (insurance providers were requested to waive charges)
Chris Steed
53:01
ME TOO!! I'm in trouble.
Benjamin Bullock - Together SC
53:02
...I'm in trouble, aren't I?
Suzie Foley
53:23
Yes, Ben and Chris!!
Brannon Traxler
54:00
Paige- DHEC approval is not required for a provider to order testing, but I am not aware of plans to facilitate that testing at this time. Testing employees who work in direct care with medically complex individuals could be considered for elective testing. Keep in mind, however, that the test only reflects their status at that point in time and doesn't guarantee they won't become infected and contagious.
Paige Knowlson
55:05
Thank you, Brannon. The Mobile Testing Clinic map lists an $80 charge at the testing facility closest to us. Is there a waiver of the testing fee for direct care dividers?
Cindy Johnson
55:48
Can you spread the virus in a saline pool, chlorine pool and fresh water lake?
jjais
55:52
Thank you. Can you update the projected containment period? The projected gathering size? Thank you
Tim Veeck, Habitat for Humanity of York County
56:35
If an employee were to indicate that they have a family members exhibiting symptoms associated with COVID-19, but they do not have an official diagnosis. What is the guidance for how to handle that employee? Would it be prudent and safe to require a 72 hour quarantine or is the recommendation always a 14 day quarantine?
knochejw
57:16
Paige, I would recommend contacting the site about a waiver request
knochejw
58:23
Cindy, the virus spreads via droplet (cough, sneeze) primarily. There is some survival on surfaces. The virus does not spread via water contact. However, people swimming at community pools need to follow safe practices/minimize contact.
knochejw
59:00
JJais can you clarify your question?
Cindy Johnson
59:43
Thank you. What if the people in a lake are children in treatment for cancer or in remission?
Amy
59:45
What are recommendations for group fitness activities outdoors.... what kind of mask? How close together can people be to remain safe with a cloth mask.
Lili Coleman
01:00:39
Is it true this virus supercharges one's immune system and if that is true, taking vitamins to strengthen your immune system would be counter productive?
Stanley Chepenik
01:00:51
Would you eat in a restaurant if the servers and hosts/hostesses are not wearing masks?
Benjamin Bullock - Together SC
01:01:28
I'm now terrified, that I might accidentally pass the virus to any number of more vulnerable folks whom I know and love
knochejw
01:02:18
Quarantine periods are for contacts of confirmed cases. In any case, everyone should be following safe practices--social distancing, washing hands frequently, wearing clothe face masks, etc.
Annie Vulpas
01:02:30
Is there a cost associated with the pop-up testing sites from DHEC?
Brannon Traxler
01:03:04
Cindy- standard recommendatinos for immunocompromised children should be followed, but the lake water itself is not a risk factor for transmission
Marti Colucci, Leezas Care Connection
01:03:25
If we are serving vulnerable populations.... how often should we test ourselves to make sure we safe?
knochejw
01:03:30
Annie, no there should be no cost with pop-up sites
jjais
01:03:54
In the past there has been on a graph on the scdhec site. Containment was from 6/1 through 8/1. Gatherings of 8 or less during that time. Do you have an update at this time? Thank you
Sarah Covington-Kolb
01:04:06
Mr. Bullock - no need to be terrified, but it is an important point that infected people can spread the virus before they have symptoms. THAT's why we all need to keep up our physical distancing.
christineellis
01:04:15
I’m wondering if the guidance from WHO, CDC and SCDHEC/State of SC is consistent in terms of protection from COVID-19. If not, what is the process for determining the best course of action to recommend to South Carolinians?
sandy
01:04:35
Are there any projections as to when social distancing may be lifted?
knochejw
01:05:36
Gym guidance: https://governor.sc.gov/sites/default/files/Documents/Executive-Orders/FINAL_Re-Opening%20Guideline_Fitness%20CentersGymsYMCA2%20(003).pdf
Brannon Traxler
01:05:42
Amy- the main point for group fitness activities is that people should be socially distanced at least 6 feet between them
Amy
01:06:13
If we work with a vulnerable population (cancer survivors), would it be considered a best practice to encourage them to get tested if they are symptom-free?
LaTisha Vaughn
01:06:39
I am also wondering about the reopening of schools. I am concerned about the feasibility of the recommendations for school aged children, the practicality of social distancing in schools that are already over crowded, when even half the number of children attending will still not allow them to be in compliance, bus transportation.
Brannon Traxler
01:07:25
Everyone- two very helpful webpages, with many links on each: www.scdhec.gov/covid19 and www.accelerate.sc.gov
Mamie Nicholson
01:07:51
Do you have a schedule for testing of all nursing homes/assisted living facilities?
Brannon Traxler
01:08:29
Mamie- the third (final) phase is occurring this week. Phases 1 and 2 were performed over the previous two weeks
Sarah Covington-Kolb
01:08:49
So what Dr. Duwve is saying is that half of infected people may not have symptoms at all, but CAN still spread the virus to others. Again, that's why it's important to maintain physical distancing and wear masks.
Brannon Traxler
01:08:53
That is the statewide nursing home testing
Chris Steed
01:09:13
DHEC is only testing skilled nursing facilities, correct? Or are they also testing Assisted Living and CCRCs? Group homes?
Brannon Traxler
01:09:31
Chris- at this time, only skilled nursing facilities (nursing homes)
Chris Steed
01:09:46
Thank you!
Brannon Traxler
01:09:50
*for the statewide testing project
Melanie Huggins
01:09:54
What percent positive rate is a good indicator? I heard DHEC say below 10% in some presser. And for how long?
knochejw
01:10:35
Melanie, the lower the percent positive the better.
Melanie Huggins
01:10:37
Where can we find testing numbers per county? And percent positive rate per county?
Brannon Traxler
01:11:15
jjais- You may be referring to the IHME modeling that was included on the DHEC COVID-19 webpage. You can see that modeling at https://covid19.healthdata.org/
Melanie Huggins
01:12:17
I guess what Im asking if you are following the percent positive as one of your indicators that it is okay to open…is below 10 percent a good indicator.
jjais
01:12:21
Excellent, thank you.
Brannon Traxler
01:14:29
Melanie- the county breakdowns for testing is not available at this time. And yes, below 10% is a good indicator, though still the lower than 10%, the better. We would like to see it trending consistently low
Brannon Traxler
01:15:44
LaTisha- there is a task force called acceleratED that is looking at the safest way to bring students back to school
Melanie Huggins
01:16:13
Thanks Brannon! And Dr. Bell has said we need to a “significant downward trend for 14 days” before considering reopening in Richland County. Is that an average? How does DHEC quantify that?
Tim Veeck, Habitat for Humanity of York County
01:16:46
Are there specific symptoms out of the ones typically listed that seem to have the highest prevalence among those infected?
Tamika Williams
01:17:33
Thank you to Dr. Duwve and DHEC staff for an informative presentation. Thanks to Erica and Forrest for facilitating.
Penny Wright - Hope Center for Children, Spartanburg
01:18:10
is there a point at which the state/county level have agreed to slow reopening based on a spike in positive results?
Brannon Traxler
01:18:44
Melanie- we recommend a consistent, downward trend for at least 14 days but we also look at % positive, hospitalization data and trends, and death data to get a full picture of disease activity.
knochejw
01:18:58
Tim- major symptoms are fever, cough, shortness of breath. But we've recognized other symptoms may be present as well, including headache, muscle aches, GI and neurologic symptoms (such as loss of smell or taste).
Brannon Traxler
01:19:18
Penny- I am not aware of specific criteria
Patricia Williamson
01:20:18
I'm sorry if I missed this question, can the virus be spread on fabric covered chairs, clothing etc?
Lily Zhang
01:21:29
Thanks to Dr. Duwve and SC DHEC staff for providing this incredibly valuable education, and real time resources of monitoring!
Nancy Lee
01:21:35
Our organization would like to offer a one-hour virtual training from a healthcare professional to TALK through safety standards, best practices, resources, etc. We are all obviously following items online, but having a voice, much like this session has offered, has been a MAJOR request throughout our organization all across the state. Do you have any recommendations on someone specifically I could contact? I'm not having the best luck securing a speaker. NOTE: Habitat serves 36 counties in SC. We can bring our 31 organizations together for this single hour. I can be contacted at Nancy@schabitats.org. THANK YOU for this information!
knochejw
01:21:36
Patricia, the primary mode of spread is droplet (cough, sneeze, talking), but the virus can live on hard surfaces for varying, but limited amounts of time (dependent on material and conditions)
jjais
01:21:44
Thank you all.
Cindy Johnson
01:22:09
Thank you so much for this workshop. It was very relevant.
Nancy Lee
01:22:10
