  • School superintendent discusses reopening plan amid coronavirus pandemic

    12:16

    Many school districts are struggling with whether to hold in-person classes this fall as coronavirus cases spike. Some are planning a mix of in-person classes and distance learning. The superintendent for the Oakland Unified School District, Dr. Kyla Johnson-Trammell, joined CBSN to discuss her plans for the new school year.

  • COVID-19: WHERE DO WE STAND- Stages of transmission & methods of prevention

    9:05

    There are four stages of COVID-19 transmission: Stage 1- Imported cases only, Stage 2- Local transmission, Stage 3- Community transmission and Stage 4- Epidemic. To prevent the progression of the disease towards an epidemic, we need to break the chain of transmission and bring down the Ro to less than 1. The WHO and individual governments have laid down certain methods to halt the disease transmission process. In these times we need to stand together and follow regulatory protocols to curb COVID-19 progression.

  • Coronavirus: school re-opening plan in doubt as teachers raise safety fears - BBC News

    9:34

    Teachers' unions say the government's scientific experts have not fully answered their concerns about whether it’s safe for some children in England to return to school next month.

    Some teachers have said social distancing will be difficult, particularly for younger pupils. The government has proposed a phased return for primary children in England from the start of June.

    In Wales the First Minister Mark Drakeford has promised a cautious approach to easing the lockdown, saying that people’s health comes first. He outlined what he called a “traffic light” system for easing restrictions but warned he could not yet provide a timetable.

    In England people are due to spend a first weekend under the new, less stringent lockdown rules, which now allow unlimited exercise and travel in order to enjoy the open air.

  • Coronavirus: Saskatchewan to remain in current reopening phase despite consistently low numbers

    10:03

    Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe and chief medical officer of health Dr. Saqib Shahab provided an update Wednesday on the province's response to COVID-19, with students set to return to school the week of Sept. 7.

    Shahab said that teachers would have priority access to COVID-19 testing as the school year begins, but it is still important for parents to keep their children at home if ill so as to help continue to contain the spread of the disease.

    Moe announced that the province was still working out a release date, but they would be moving forward with having the COVID Alert app useable in Saskatchewan. Currently, Ontario is the only province using the app, but the plan by the federal government was to roll the app out across the country.

    Both Moe and Shahab were asked about the moving into the next phase of reopening for the province as they had been in the current one for some time, but Moe said despite the consistent low numbers, they are not looking to implement stage five.

    Moe and Shahab also stressed, with back-to-school days away, that people are still advised against non-essential travel so as to prevent the possibility of bringing COVID-19 into the province from jurisdictions that may be seeing higher numbers than Saskatchewan. The province reported just two new cases on Wednesday.

  • How coronavirus spreads outdoors vs. indoors

    6:03

    Can a runner give you Covid-19?

    Subscribe to our channel!

    If you want to stay totally safe from Covid-19, and eliminate the risk of either getting it or transmitting it, you have to stay home. But as the weather gets warmer, public places start to open up, and many places enter their fourth month of life under coronavirus, that’s becoming less and less realistic.

    At the same time, we know that coronavirus can be transmitted through the air -- and that raises some pretty big questions. Is it safe to go the beach? What about a park? Is a heavy-breathing runner going to infect you as they pass you? In short: How do you go outside safely?

    Read Vox reporter Sigal Samuel’s article about the risks of transmitting Covid-19 outdoors:

  • Coronavirus outbreak: Doug Ford gives update on Ontario reopening, addresses cottage visit | FULL

    33:26

    Ontario Premier Doug Ford on Friday discussed the province’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic alongside Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health, and Rod Phillips, Minister of Finance. This briefing comes as the province cautiously begins its economic reopening plan.

    Ontario reported 477 new cases of the novel coronavirus on Friday, bringing the provincial total to 19,598 cases. The death toll has risen to 1,540, as 63 more deaths were reported.

    Meanwhile, 13,990 people have recovered from COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, which is 71.4 per cent of cases. Friday’s report marks an increase of 2.5 per cent in total cumulative cases. It also marks the highest number of cases in a single-day since the beginning of the week.

    During the briefing, the premier addressed the recent controversy incurred when he visited his cottage over the Easter long weekend. Ford said that he only drove up alone to check on the house, since in the past there have been issues with broken pipes, and returned home shortly after. Health officials have cautioned people from heading to cottages to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to those communities.

  • COVID-19 Update 11: How exactly the coronavirus becomes airborne.

    7:16

    Different diseases have different modes of transmission. And at the same time, one disease can have multiple modes of transmission. Influenza that’s transmitted by aerosols is generally thought to be associated with a more severe illness than influenza that’s transmitted via contact or fomites.

    In this video we continue on from update #10 and examine in greater detail the impact of particle size, the concentration of viral RNA in coarse and fine aerosols, and how they differ in the transmission of COVID-19.

    Surprisingly, larger particles (from a cough or sneeze) contain less virus than small particles, and are less likely to penetrate into lungs. Individuals who are sick produce fine, virus laden particles during speaking and breathing that have a high viral load and can travel far down into the lungs of a susceptible individual.

  • Texas reports record coronavirus hospitalizations after state reopened early

    2:15

    There are currently 1,935 Covid-19 patients in hospitals across the state, topping the previous hospitalization record of 1,888 patients on May 5, according to new data from the Texas Department of State Health Services. Texas was among the first states to relax its statewide stay-at-home order, allowing it to expire April 30 and some businesses to resume operations May 1.

    Texas reported a record number of coronavirus hospitalizations Monday — weeks after Gov. Greg Abbott took the lead among governors in easing social distancing measures to help bring jobs back.

    There are currently 1,935 Covid-19 patients in hospitals across the state, topping the previous hospitalization record of 1,888 patients on May 5, according to new data from the Texas Department of State Health Services.

    Texas was among the first states to relax its statewide stay-at-home order, allowing it to expire April 30 and some businesses to resume operations May 1.

    The coronavirus has infected more than 75,400 people in Texas, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. The positivity rate for Covid-19 tests in Texas reached a low of 4.27% toward the end of May but has since jumped to 7.55%, according to the state’s health department.

    While hospitalizations are increasing, there are more than 1,600 open intensive-care beds and more than 5,800 ventilators available for critically ill patients.

    Some infectious disease experts say hospitalization numbers could be a better way to track a state’s reopening performance since it’s more difficult to skew than testing data, which fluctuates depending on how many tests are being run.

    --
    It’s been over a week since a UK minister gave a press conference in Downing Street – after daily briefings ended on 23 June.

  • Coronavirus outbreak: Scott Moe expects to release Reopen Saskatchewan plan next week | FULL

    37:41

    Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe said on Monday that if case numbers remain at the current projected rate that by next week, he plans to release his government's Reopen Saskatchewan plan in a safe way, stressing more testing and contact tracing will be vital to re-opening and keeping the province open.

    He said they would need to see a constant rate of cases at the levels they're currently at in order to determine whether to open the province and do so in consultation with Public Health. Moe also added that they would likely reopen the province in phases, reopening areas that have the least risk and monitoring the process. He said that long-term care homes and similar facilities, however, will likely have current measures in place for some time even as the province reopens.

    Asked about a report that Saskatoon is being considered a potential location for NHL games to possibly be played without fans, Moe said they would need to meet all possible requirements set out by both the province and Canada's medical health officers. The province's chief health officer Dr. Saqib Shahab said large group events would be lower than business as usual in terms of resumption.

    Saskatchewan reported two new cases of COVID-19 , bringing the total of reported cases in the province to 300.

    The province reported 14 more recoveries on Monday, bringing the total individuals who have recovered to 178.

    Coronavirus: When Will Schools Reopen? | NBC Nightly News

  • Coronavirus outbreak: Ontario reopening plan will help guide Torontos recovery, mayor says | FULL

    35:50

    Mayor of Toronto John Tory said on Monday that Ontario’s framework for reopening, which was announced earlier in the day, is a “safe and responsible approach” and it will guide the work the city's doing to ensure a safe and strong recovery.

    He said he works closely with the premier’s office as the recovery of the province is strongly related to its largest city’s recovery.

    Mayor Tory announced the launch of Curb TO, a program designed by the city’s transportation division and Toronto public health for encouraging physical distancing for pedestrians passing lineups and each other on narrow sidewalks.

    The program will start with 10 sites and will expand to more than 100 locations across the city, giving an increased access to temporary parking opportunities for quick food and essential medicine pickups and deliveries.

    Dr. Eileen de Villa, Toronto’s medical officer of health reported a total of 4,973 cases of COVID-19 in Toronto on Monday, including 4,493 confirmed cases and 480 probable cases.

    She also reported that 308 people are currently hospitalized from COVID-19, and 104 people in intensive care.

    A total of 297 deaths due to COVID-19 were reported in Toronto as of Monday.

    According to de Villa, the city has to consider important parameters before reopening as announced by Premier Ford earlier Monday, including a continuous decrease of COVID-19 new cases, sufficient acute and critical health care capacity, the availability of personal protective equipment (PPE), sufficient case and contact tracing capacity and the ability to rapidly identify new cases and outbreaks.

  • Coronavirus outbreak: Saskatchewan expands testing criteria as more businesses reopen | FULL

    1:4:58

    Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe and the province's chief medical health officer Dr. Saqib Shahab provided an update on the province's COVID-19 ongoing response on Thursday.

    Moe announced an expansion of the testing criteria throughout the province as more businesses start to reopen, saying this will lead to an increase in overall testing numbers as a result.

    Shahab said the broadened criteria will pay careful attention to those who are caregivers to people with compromised immune systems, the homeless and vulnerable populations.

    Testing will also focus on patients restarting paused treatments like cancer care and expectant mothers.

    More businesses in Saskatchewan will be able to reopen on Friday under phase 1 of the province's reopening plan, including golf courses and driving theatres. Outfitters operating in areas not impacted by current travel restrictions will be also permitted to begin their operations.

    Next Tuesday will be the beginning of phase 2 of the reopening plan, Moe said, adding that many retail businesses will be able to begin operation, such as shopping malls and select personal services including hair stylists and barbers, massage therapists and other services.

    Saskatchewan reported five new cases of COVID-19 on Thursday, four in the far north and one in Regina.

    The total number of cases in the province stands at 582 as of Thursday.

  • St. Louis Custodians Share Coronavirus Concerns, React to Schools Reopening Plan

    2:15

    ST. LOUIS — Ricky Gray is currently the head custodian at Carr Lane Middle School. He's 64, and has been with the district for 32 years. It's a job he loves doing.

    The main thing that pretty much keeps me motivated is the kids. I take a lot of pride in my job, Gray said.

    Throughout the coronavirus pandemic and all summer long, Gray and nearly 200 custodians with St. Louis Public Schools have remained on the go. The part-time and full-time employees have been busy sprucing up nearly 70 elementary, middle and high schools and the district's main building.


    It's been a very serious moment for me. You know trying to get the buildings sanitized and making the buildings safe and conducive for the kids. We're here every day and many of us haven't missed a day, said Gray.

    According to a reopening plan released by the City of St. Louis Health Department, primary and secondary schools in the St. Louis area will reopen in the fall with new guidelines.

    I think it's gonna get worse, said custodian Debra Clark.

    Clark's been a custodian in the school district for 22 years. She works at Dunbar Elementary school and worries about little ones returning to school amid the pandemic.

    We have wiped down everything in the buildings. We did the floors. We made sure the restrooms for the kids are very, very clean, and, I still think it's too soon for the kids to return to school in the fall. The kids are forever running up to you, hugging you, speaking to you and grabbing your hand. It's an elementary school and I just am concerned about their health and safety, Clark said.

    I also think it's too soon. I just don't think it's a good time for the students, Gray said.

    Gray also said at times, he and other custodians have had to reach into their own pockets and by their own face masks for work.

    A spokesperson for the school district tells 5 On Your Side that should not be happening.

    In fact, spokesperson Meredith Pierce also said, the school district does have enough personal protection equipment for custodial staff.

    In the meantime, Clark and Gray remain committed in the face of COVID-19.

    They want the buildings to be conducive to learning, so our jobs are just as important as teachers. When they all come back, they can look forward to coming back to a classroom that's thoroughly cleaned and refreshed for a new school year, said Gray.
