For group tracing, can you clarify that it is required that all students test between days 3-5.
Amy Nazarenko-Barbero Contra Costa
23:35
Jessica: yes, the student was on campus during the infectious period, Tuesday.
Natalie Lenz-Acuna
24:04
Thank you so very much for the updated links.
Jill Lucia
24:10
Now that boosters are available for 12+, should this be a consideration for up-to-date for this age group?
Jill Knipstein
25:03
In order for staff or students, who have tested positive, to return to their site, do they need provide a copy of their negative test in order to return after day 5? Otherwise if we don't have proof of their negative test, they remain isolated/quarantined for 10 days?
Christina Mashore
25:59
Your new grid says to use test date as day 0, even with symptoms present. Now you just said to still count from symptom onset..... ??? Please clarify!
Aimee
28:37
Is tracing required or recommended when students are seated outside for lunch? Is there a difference between inside and outside eating?
Dianne Driscoll
32:36
Can you put the link to the revised grid in the chat again?
Sarah Berry
32:49
For a close contact in the household, if the positive case tests negative on or after day 5, does the case need to continue to wear a mask at home until day 10?
LMullis
32:50
I came a little late. Can you put the new grid link in chat again.
Andi
33:05
Please semd the new grid, our school never received it.
Will Harper, CCHS Public Information Office

New grid: https://cchealth.org/covid19/pdf/COVID-SCHOOLS-GRID.pdf
Jessica Griswold
35:50
Last time on the call, if we are short staffed we are exempt of tracing on SPOT. Is that still the expectation? What is the newest guideline?
Kathy Rooney
36:23
SRVUSD recommends based on “should”
Hilary
36:52
Agree with Aida that people have been confused by use of the word "should," interpreting as a suggestion.
Aida Glimme
36:59
I see the SRVUSD comment and OUSD is following SHOULD as well
Kathy Rooney
37:00
Must get testing would be impossible with the high numbers of cases
Vanessa Caigoy
37:26
Are other schools and districts running into the messaging issue in that Group Tracing is only for students but OSHA has not implemented such for teachers of those classrooms?
Kathy Rooney
38:03
YES. the OSHA issue is very problematic
Kaitlin Bailey - District RN
44:24
Helpful tip: crtl+F brings up a search bar on the page and you can type "Grid" to quickly find it if you miss it scrolling.
Aimee
47:05
If a student tests positive, and ends their isolation period on or after day 5 with negative test, what day would they be able to participate in extra circular activities?
Dianne Driscoll
47:55
Is there criteria for closing the whole school anymore? A certain amount of cases in the school?
Jackie Oria
47:56
Are we combining cases with an EE#? Should we be looking up EE #?
Jackie Oria
48:37
What was the 1st question you asked about 90 day testing exemption? I heard the answer was no but missed the question!!
Gena Howarter
51:47
Now that the guidance has updated to state that staff must be boosted in order to not have to quarantine when exposed, does this mean they are no longer considered fully vaccinated and therefore need to participate in weekly surveillance testing?
Heather
55:15
what if a household member is positive for Covid and the student is isolated when the symptoms begin, and the member (relative other than parent) and is fully vaccinated 6 months ago can they return to work? the work is a school
Kaitlin Bailey - District RN
57:26
Even though it doesn't change the scenario, what is the timeframe for "major outbreak" or can that be found on Cal/OSHA?
Sofe (Sefanit) Mekuria
01:03:46
Here is what I found for Calsoha:
Sofe (Sefanit) Mekuria
01:03:47
(1) This section applies to any workplace covered by section 3205 if 20 or more employee COVID-19 cases in an exposed group, as defined by section 3205(b), visited the workplace during their high-risk exposure period within a 30-day period.(2) This section shall apply until there are fewer than three COVID-19 cases detected in the exposed group for a 14-day period.

If we hold an event indoors in a big room with multiple classrooms, classes would be seated separately, would all classes have to test if one kid is positive, since they are sharing an indoor space. That is if we are using the new group tracing model.
Kaitlin Bailey - District RN
01:10:49
I'm not sure if this question has been asked before: if we are requiring students to show proof of a negative prior to returning to school, is it acceptable to receive it at anytime even though some home tests can only be read within a small time frame before results become inaccurate. I'm sure we can't expect parents to drive their child's negative test to the school immediately the results don't degrade. Hopefully that made sense.

Here is the link to the standard CalOsah temporary standards: https://www.dir.ca.gov/dosh/coronavirus/ETS.html

Thanks so much!

01:14:42
Also general law for COVID: https://www.dir.ca.gov/title8/3205.html
Lili Lum
01:17:39
where can we see high priority zip codes
Jill Lucia
01:17:58
Can we add the information directly on the spot form is we have an additional case? I only saw an upload button.
Liz Dachauer
01:18:31
The guidance FAQs says that we do not need to track the testing with the group tracing. Can you clarify? Are we tracking testing for group tracing?
Sofe (Sefanit) Mekuria
01:19:45
You don't have to track the results, but we do want you to that people got tested in this method/group tracking.
Karen Thornburg
01:22:51
The grid states that students/staff is previous lab confirmed COVID in past 90 days do not need to quarantine. With the lack of availability of lab testing over the winter break, are we able to accept reported home test reports of COVID to exempt these students/staff?
Sofe (Sefanit) Mekuria
01:24:33
I think given the large number of cases and home test use, that it is appropriate to use home test as a marker given you have the records of this +
