The reasons for not recommending face coverings for young children are still relevant - safety concerns, cleanliness, staff having to assist and put themselves at risk.
Tina L. Walker
32:13
nasal congestion AND runny nose not just a runny nose?
Pam Meaney, Tollhouse Preschool
32:41
Why do the COVID tests continue to take 4-5, sometimes 7 days to get returned.
Stephanie McCosker
32:48
Close contact is regardless of having a mask on correct?
Merrimack Valley Montessori School
32:53
So what are the definitive recommendations? Mask or no mask for children 3-6 years - and when did that change - like how would we know that it changed since safer at home isn’t updated

this is just a reccomendation
Linda

I would imagine opening your windows more often would help with air exchange, correct?
donnamarsh
37:05
If we can’t get an HVAC upgrade is there no benefit of an air exchange system in each room in a shelter? This is in addition to recommended measures being taken.
Beth Daly
38:16
@Pam Meaney - You can monitor testing turn around times on our dashboard. Most PCR tests at all of the major labs are completed within 2 days. Rapid tests are now available as well for symptomatic people and those results come back the same day. Here is our testing dashboard with turn around time data: https://www.nh.gov/covid19/dashboard/testing.htm#dash
Pam Meaney, Tollhouse Preschool
39:56
Thank you Beth. Most of our families have a quick turn around, but I just had a staff member that took 5.5 days. are there certain places we should be sending families or staff members? And does it cost more for rapid tests?
Lindsay Pierce she/her/hers
39:56
@Stephanie McCosker: When we identify close contacts to people with COVID-19, the use of masks does not exclude someone from being identified as a close contact. The use of a mask is a very effective preventative measure, but does not eliminate risk.
Christina DAllesandro
40:48
Is testing still free? We are hearing reports of being charged for testing and this is a barrier for parents and child care workers.
Lindsay Pierce she/her/hers
41:24
@Tina Walker thanks for the clarification! New or unexplained Runny nose alone is a symptom that should prompt exclusion and testing
Francesca Trial
41:33
if a child has a cough, tests negative, how long we allow cough to linger before we require testing again?
Alicia Deaver, Rise for baby and family
42:00
One of my employees who went to urgent care on Friday with her 10 month old with an ear infection, said the urgent care told her insurance would not cover the rapid test, because it is not designed for children under the age of 5. Not sure if that will come up again. However, we have been getting the full test result back within 24-48 hours here in Keene.

Lindsay Pierce she/her/hers
43:04
The NH DHHS/NG testing sites in Concord and Londonderry offer no-charge testing.
Christina DAllesandro
43:13
Thank you @Lindsay. I would just like clarification on cost - should we expect to have to pay for tests, for all tests or just some tests?
Kristin Ayers
43:32
We have a family that 3 out of 6 household members had tested positive. The 3 positive members have come to the end of their 14 day quarantine (the whole family quarantined). The family was told that at this time the 3 that had tested negative need to now start their quarantine. Is this the correct? That would be a total of 28 days for the children (that tested negative) out of child care.
Janell Davis
44:48
@ Kristin Ayers... that's crazy
Merrimack Valley Montessori School
45:10
OK, so a minute ago in this chat someone said that Runny Nose was not a reason for exclusion - Not sure who is answering the chat but we need to be clear
Lindsay Pierce she/her/hers
45:16
@Christine DAllesandro cost may vary based on site and insurance. Medicaid does offer a testing eligibility program: https://business.nh.gov/DOS_COVID19Testing/MedicaidTestFAQ.pdf
Christina DAllesandro
45:23
Will this presentation be shared?
Kimberly McKenney
45:45
I am now confused on the runny nose
Tina Sapienza
46:18
Once a child gets a test and they test negative, do they still need to be excluded for another of time?
Merrimack Valley Montessori School
46:19
Agreed - on this chat someone said runny nose does not exclude…..
Becky Parton
46:20
If people want a video to share about "Layers of Protection" (I know I'm going back a few minutes), Dartmouth pediatrician Kim Gifford helped us record this quick clip you can share. It does talk about the Upper Valley specifically, but otherwise is relatable: https://youtu.be/OncMAiv3pWQ

My feeling is that a runny nose may not be Covid-19, but it is a symptom of some illness - other than a chronic condition like allergies -,so the child does not come to school until the runny nose is gone.

Deirdre McPartlin

Is antigen testing effective with children under 5 years?
Pam Meaney, Tollhouse Preschool
51:15
Why are Dr's writing these notes? Why are they not following your recommendations?
Sally Tot Spot
51:50
We are asking parents to contact their Health care providers for their child’s potential Covid symptoms and the providers are unwilling to allow the child to be tested for Covid AND are refusing to provide a Dr. note as to why they are refusing to order the Covid test.
Jennifer
51:51
What if family doesn't want to test their child, how long do they need to stat out of the center for?
JoAnn Kasper
52:05
is there a salvia rapid test. We had a few children that were nasal tested and are anxious when having their nose wiped.
Carrie Chasse
52:32
What if a child has a runny nose and fever and the doctor says it's due to teething?
Patricia Tilley

The Universal Guidelines say: Symptom-based criteria are met for discontinuation of isolation:1. At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first started,AND2. At least 24 hours have passed since last fever (off any fever reducing medications),AND3. Symptoms have improved; orii. Approved COVID-19 testing is negative, at least 24 hours have passed since their last fever (off any fever reducing medications) and symptoms have improved.

patients are being billed for tests , over $100 per test- really difficult for families with multiple children

testing should be free, it is to difficult for these parents to pay for it every other week for each symptom.

Can we please get clarification highlighted VERY STRONGLY at public forums, that a negative test 72 hours after exposure or 72 hours after travel DOES NOT mean that you don't have to quarantine for 14 days - you could STILL test positive after that initial negative test, up to 14 days after exposure/travel. SO many people are NOT understanding this. They think a negative test is the end-all, be-all and they no longer have to follow quarantine requirements.

It is taking a very long time for contact tracers to contact individuals who have had an exposure - they should not wait to quarantine - can this time be reduced?
Christiane

Currently takes up to a week to be contacted
Melissa

One of my employees just had to have her daughter tested and because it wasn't a doctor referral she has to pay the full 265.00. Her daughter did have symptoms.

Why are these tests so expensive ?
Christiane
01:02:24
Our employees who need to be tested and have our Anthem insurance are incurring costs up to $ 100
Amanda

yes - exactly.
Melissa Gray
01:03:46
If a parent travels via public transportation (airplaine) out of new England, we require the parents to quarantine and do not allow the parent into our building. However, the parents are then home with the child and touching, in close contact with the child. Does the child need to be kept out of childcare?
Patricia Tilley
01:04:02
IF cost is a barrier due to insurance co-pays, individuals can get tested at the National Guard sites. If they do not have insurance, they can apply for the Medicaid testing benefit.
Liz Giza
01:05:01
Is the Medicaid benefit only for one test, or can people apply for it each time they are tested?
Christiane
01:05:02
Yes, but it is a hardship to travel to Concord or Londonderry from our area of the State - free tests should be much more available in every city - for sure!
Lindsay Pierce she/her/hers
01:05:39
@Melissa Gray- Only those who traveled would need to quarantine. In the case you shared, the child would still be able to attend childcare/school. You are correct that the parent who traveled should be staying home and not allowed in your facility.
Christina DAllesandro

@Elizabeth Telbot -can we get a response to Liz’s question about whether or not the Medicaid benefit is one time or can be used multiple times?

Regarding Medicaid benefit, it can be used more than once. When I said it was a one-time benefit, I meant that it is different from traditional Medicaid and you don't have to meet the eligibility of Medicaid and it does not give you other Medicaid benefits... it has one sole purpose, not necessarily one-time.
