Seems to me that with 3000 businesses in Nevada County one of our new challenges will be training businesses in the protocols for safely managing brining people back to work.

As an FYI - The ultimate testing goal is to ensure that all those who are or become symptomatic can be tested.

Dr. Cutler is talking more about CA input. Nevada County is removed from that. Rocklin has started opening up parks, golf courses and more. They started on April 16th.

The 211 symptom tracker disaggregated data is not available to Public Health yet, correct? What is the functional goal of the tracker?
Erika Seward
02:21:50
The Governor’s Stay-at-Home Order and the Essential Workers List do not mention what people are allowed to do besides for work purposes. Recreational activities, walks, hikes, or exercise are not included. Consequently, Public Access Activities do not appear to be explicitly authorized by the Stay-at-Home Order. The County Public Health Order does authorize Public Access Activities. The list of allowed “Essential Activities” includes engaging in outdoor activity, provided the individuals comply with social distancing requirements, such as walking, hiking, biking, or running, as well as outdoor recreation activities at parks and other open spaces. Do you anticipate this changing? Any new news here?

Hi Pascale, in a nutshell, the symptom tracker is intended for PH and others to see potential community disease spread outside of the confirmed lab tests. We feel there was value to this while demand for testing exceeds testing capacity.

Thanks Jill

Kimberly...can you please mention a couple of local manufacturing companies that have pivoted in order to provide some of the materials that we've been in need of?
Jennifer Singer

Parks are open in San Mateo (sings about social distancing are up) but cases are also “increasing exponentially” according to Covid Act now so that may change
Jennifer Singer
02:41:16
I don’t need to comment, just sharing with everyone
Andy Burton
02:41:35
Thank you.

Only essential businesses are supposed to be open. Recreating from home is safe but as soon as we get on the road we endanger others. I know the balance is tough but this is a pandemic and the measures we are being asked to follow by public health should be observed as closely as possible.
Erika Seward
02:48:02
There are many neighborhood trails and preserves that are accessible, open and with signs posted with CDC guidelines (no comment, just fyi).
Erika Seward

Thanks Amy Irani for working out a safe scenario to open up farmers markets in May. Our local farmers appreciate that.

It was referenced earlier that we have only 12 lab confirmed cases of COVID-19 in western Nevada county. It seems important to mention, however, that due to limited testing capacity, the lab confirmed cases likely do not accurately represent the true spread of illness in the community.
Andy Burton
02:51:06
Ms. Irani...offline question. Wil the use of infrared thermometers be recommended or mandatory when restaurants begin to open?
Lisa
02:52:29
Thanks Jill for sharing that information. Unfortunately the public only knows what they see on the County's Covid site. So that is the information we answer to.
JBlake2
02:53:59
Yes, good point, Lisa. We'll continue to try to get that message out to all.
Amy Irani
02:55:04
good afternoon Mr. Burton, great question and tis is something that my colleagues are discussing as e create the guidance documentation. we would incorporate guidance from Dr. Cutler and Jill Blake as well.
Lisa
03:03:05
I agree with Kristin, In Grass Valley because we have the majority of essential businesses so there are many stores open we have not seen a surge in cases.
Gil Mathew
03:03:46
There are some conversatiosn that some institutions will not open until there is an actual vaccine available, Sierra College is such a case.
Azriel LaMarca
03:04:34
Is there any available information about the California Disaster Loan?
Sabrina Nicholson - NCRCD

My brother is a small business owner who is listed as "essential". His revenue is down 80% so far. Is there help/training available for those small businesses that don't manage to make it through?
