how long to get test results back?
Mona Cummings
48:19
County Health Department should be interested in developing a public health campaign focused on informing/empowering individuals to lower sugar consumption. Metabolic disease can begin to be reversed within weeks. There is evidence to support this.
Kathryn Weakland
48:36
I took my test at Rite Aid - it took 15 days to get my negative results
Ashley Swearengin, CVCF
49:28
@Kathryn - whoa - 15 days, but glad it was negative!
Elliott Balch, CVCF
49:33
Spanish site = ayudadelvallecovid.com
meredith wiley
49:39
that time lapse is really problematic
Ashley Swearengin, CVCF
50:23
@Eleazar - my understanding is that there is such a backlog among labs throughout the state and nation - that’s why the delay in results.
Lowell Ens
51:19
I was tested Friday early morning in Sanger LHI site, and negative results received Sunday evening.
Bob Nelson, FUSD

Thomas Ruiz
55:04
Will there be sufficient flu shots this year? Studies show that the shot may help lessen the effects of Covid if one is infected by it.
Manuel Escandon
55:47
Is it to get the flu and COVID at the same time?
Manuel Escandon
56:05
possible
Hugo Morales
56:11
Could you be more specific about the percentages of the ethnicities of the deceased? Thanks again.
Elliott Balch, CVCF
56:26
To be an "influenzer" (my pun, sorry): that email is ramaral@fresnocountyca.gov
Hugo Morales
58:07
Thank you.
Peter Vang
01:01:13
Would the county nurses be available to administer the flu vaccinations or will that be the responsibility of the influencers to find their own nurses?
Elliott Balch, CVCF
01:01:18
From Stephanie Koda: Does anyone know if there are any statistics on daycares that are open and Covid results? Curious to know the difference between schools opening and daycares.
Elliott Balch, CVCF
01:01:38
Sorry *Stefani
Elliott Balch, CVCF
01:02:10

Ashley Swearengin, CVCF
01:06:00
That’s really cool, Bob. Thank you for thinking through the logistics for meal support and for the additional visit.
Ashley Swearengin, CVCF
01:06:05

Sounds like a good fundraising opportunity

01:06:54
You can watch the PBS segments on their channels, website, or their social media channels.
Andrew Feil, ENP
01:07:53
Parent feedback on PBS schedule: When I can remember, my kids have love it and are very engaged!
Rhoda Gonzales
01:08:10
Teenagers and College students seem to be socially congregating more and contracting the virus more. Is there any campaign targeted social media that can reach this demographic and let them know they are also susceptible and it is happening in our community?
Nikki Henry
01:09:16
www.fresnounified.org
Emily Bahne
01:10:05
There are so many rumors about smaller districts opening. I hear things from families daily. Are there any charters or schools that are defying state orders and opening without a waiver?
Elliott Balch, CVCF
01:10:05
From Stefani Koda: This is great information. Does the district consider children in daycare and is daycare working with the school district for facilitation
Thomas Ruiz
01:10:18
It sounds like the teachers union has limited the amount of online time to teach, thus have their salaries been adjusted accordingly?
Lori Olivero
01:10:24
Hello! Lori Olivero - Community Outreach Manager ~ Anthem Blue Cross Medi-Cal - Zoom, WEbEx, Conference Call informational presentations still available! I’ve done quite a few and the orgs have found them helpful! Please reach out - would love to chat with you. E: lori.olivero@anthem.com M: (559) 573-1733 Have a great day! 😊
Andrea Shabaglian
01:10:31
I am a Norseman and Computech Parent. We are grateful for you Mr. Nelson! Thank you for making sure kids don’t fall through the cracks! Let us know how we can help with that, too.
Elliott Balch, CVCF
01:10:32
From Tania Pacheco-Werner: this is a fantastic model. Would the online platform you're doing be cost prohibitive to implement for smaller districts? some rural districts are obligating their teachers to go physically to the classroom and sign waivers if they have to bring their own kids with them due to lack of childcare.
Nikki Henry
01:10:48

Great job, FUSD (Bob, et al). Thank you for your service during this challenging time. I am certain that families appreciate your extra efforts to provide food provisions. You are doing the right thing… I’m confident the funding will catch up.

01:13:53
Thanks Bob. Still concerned that students not receiving a full day of education.
Nikki Henry
01:14:07
They will utilize Teams and will clarify if they are using any other online tools or apps.
Eduardo Gonzalez
01:16:25
Will the tutorial be provided by teachers during the support time and is 20 minutes per class (High School) is enough for so many students?
Kathy Mahan
01:16:31
Appreciate your thoughtfulness, collaboration and tireless efforts.
Emily Bahne
01:16:36
thank you!!
Sarah Harris
01:16:41

Can't find the school schedules for the fall at your site.
Nikki Henry
01:17:12
@Eduardo - outside of the teachers there will be more opportunities for tutorials with our Paraprofessionals and others
Andrea Shabaglian
01:17:16
What is the plan to reach those kids who are not showing up so they do not fall through the cracks?
Karmen Motley
01:17:20
Same here, where can we find the schedules

01:19:57
Thank you FUSD for all your hard work
Bob Nelson, FUSD
01:23:56
Thanks everybody! Affirmation in a time where even the best of us are all a little bit off is so greatly appreciated! We cannot do our best for our kids without all of your collective help! So incredibly appreciated!
Thomas Ruiz
01:24:46
At a time where our children are susceptible to many issues and the union to argue their case for fewer hours of teaching is shameful.
Thomas Ruiz
01:26:04
This is how things get out of hand. No accountability. Please, Please, Please, ALL Parents report shortcomings of your children's teachers to FUSD! They can't be there to see what is going on but as Parents YOU can!
Thomas Ruiz
01:26:27
Great Work FUSD and Staff!
Thomas Ruiz
01:28:25
Education is like nutrition. Reduced amounts will lead to deficiencies.
