School Nurses Return to School Call with the NHDHHS. Hosted by the NHDOE.
Angela Adams
01:04:54
I am going to mute all once we get started and hand this over to Ben and Beth.
Kathy Barth
01:06:46
Angela, you may not be aware that your sound is on
Paula MacKinnon
01:07:29
Its Kathryn Bonyai, not Angela
Elizabeth Lacasse
01:09:01
it's hard to hear
Lisa Chamberlain
01:09:25
Yes, very difficult to hear
tine svanholm
01:09:28
hard to hear
Janet Meade
01:09:52
I thought this started at 10?
Brenda Barth
01:09:53
Who is talking? Yes, hard to hear.
Paula MacKinnon
01:10:06
It hasn't started yet, that's a nurse's mic that's open
Mary Ann Skersey
01:10:10
Yes, I thought this started at 10 and hard to hear.
Julie Phelan
01:10:22
I thought it started at 10am?
cecile fligg
01:10:27
Is it moving to a different location?
Paula MacKinnon
01:10:27
It doesn
Christine Boston
01:10:31
It isn't the presentation just someone who is talking but didn't mute
Julie Phelan
01:10:50
ok thank you!
Colleen Krochmal
01:13:17
I see that we are recording. Will there be a copy of this posted somewhere to reference later?
Katherine Pierson
01:13:21
With a high percentage of school aged kids being asymptomatic with Covid, does it make sense to screen all for temps before entering the school?
Pamela Clay-Storm
01:13:49
If we understand the wearing of masks to be our proven primary prevention against the spread of coronavirus and understanding schools will manage individual circumstances why are masks not a mandate for the re-entry plan.
Katherine Pierson
01:14:21
Should OT/PT services wear gowns? For routine work with students?
Mary Palm
01:14:24
Should students and staff be tested for COVID prior to school reentry? And then follow up with daily screenings?
Rebecca Doucet
01:14:59
Please, describe how big a cohort should be and how many cohorts a student could be in. Our school is proposing 4, if I understand it correctly.
ALLISON DAIGLE
01:15:06
thank you for doing this webinar
Megan DeNubila
01:15:08
I am also on with Beth's login info so she should be able to get on
Erin Stewart
01:15:14
is the state looking at pooled testing for buildings and will there be municipal sewage testing to monitor for outbreaks
Kira Hayes
01:15:45
Will we be able to get a copy of this presentation?
Margaret Lohmann
01:16:03
Now more than ever we need a nurse at the DOE. Are there plans to hire one soon?
Susan Linehan
01:16:27
can we expect the state to provide us with a decision tree to follow when a student/ staff tests positive (or shows signs)?
cecile fligg
01:16:39
Infra-re thermometers have proven themselves to be inaccurate
Olivia Winkfield
01:16:40
Who will set the guidelines for when a student can return to school who show any type of symptoms? Do they require a negative test if they want to come back before the 10-14 day time period that is recommended by the CDC?
Willow Graham
01:16:44
As we work on our protocols for sick students, could you please confirm my understanding of the following: If a student is sick with ANY of the symptoms of COVID-19, they should be tested, and remain out of school (and isolated if they live on campus) until the test results come back. If they are positive, they go by the 10/3 rule to come back to school/out of isolation. If it’s negative, we could let them come back as long as they follow our regular exclusion of ill students/staff policy? (i.e., fever free for 24 hours, no vomiting/diarrhea, etc). This is incredibly important for us to understand, as a large percentage of our school is made up of boarding students. If this is the case, it is highly likely we will be putting students in isolation often (cough/sore throat/runny nose), and administration needs to be very clear with this for their own understanding and for parents.
Noa Bourke
01:16:51
Are you touching base with nurses who are running summer programs now for insights for the fall? We are in session now and all sorts of tweaking will be needed..
Judith Limondin
01:16:52
Will the questions we submitted via email be addressed?
pamela hausler
01:16:55
Will there be testing readily available for kids and staff that have suspected symptoms?
Sheryl Chuda
01:17:00
If we have to send home students (ultimately staff as well) due to cough/cold/runny nose, etc…they will need to be tested for COVID19 or see out a healthcare provider for dx or return to School note. In the NHPR Exchange program you did not answer the question about testing taking 3+ days. So we are expecting students/staff out for that long? How do we account for the lack of transportation? Are Health Care providers prepared for the influx of all of these students being excluded due to symptoms?
Theresa Evans
01:17:50
Any suggestions on placing portable HEPA filters in the health office and any classroom where there is low air flow/circulation? thank you
Willow Graham
01:18:00
What is the increased risk for a classroom if a teacher were to use a face shield while physically distanced with all students masked vs. all being masked? In this scenario, if the teacher came within 6 feet of a student (i.e., to help them with a math problem) they would put on a mask. If this is not idea/acceptable, have you seen any efficacy studies on the masks that have a clear “window” in the mouth area?
Noa Bourke
01:18:01
my staff getting tested are out for 9 days on average
Judith Limondin
01:18:13
Dr. Chan — Your thoughts on the large recently published South Korea study finding that children 10 and older can spread the virus at least as well as adults? What implications does this have with partial to full reopening of schools and the current relatively low NH infection, hospitalization, and death rates?
Steve Chapman
01:18:21
accessible and rapid testing will be key if children are not to miss school unnecessarily. What will be our statewide system?
laurie cook
01:18:22
How many symptoms do/does a person have to present with to be "sent home"? Are we to differentiate for a person's "normal" daily symptoms ~ i.e. seasonal allergies vs. possible COVID symptoms?
Rebecca Ivatury
01:18:31
We have low-to-no community transmission in our town & surrounding towns. What should our threshold be for closing school in response to community transmission? (working at a small, independent school (K-8) in Lyme, NH. We are planning for 6’ desk spacing, masks for all)
Frank Edelblut
01:18:37
We are recording this presentation so that you will be able to access it later.
Willow Graham
01:18:39
We have eliminated all team sports except for our soccer program for the fall season, as that is a large reason why students come to our school. It is not quite clear to me from the “Safer at Home Amateur and Youth Sports Guidance” what happens during game play. It seems unsafe for athletes to be masked. Would regular soccer playing be considered “close contact” if the player was in a game from another New England school? We are having our players be in their own “pod” at school, for safety’s sake. If a team pod remained masked and 6’ away from everyone out of their pod while not actively playing, could we consider this relatively “safe”?
CathyAnne Lemire
01:18:42
Hepa filter pro or con? Funding available for PPE?
Rebecca Ivatury
01:18:42
What kind of information/data can we bring to our administrators to advocate for masks for all (K-8), so our teacher-cohort feel comfortable returning to school? Some teachers or their family members are immunocompromised. We plan for mask break during nap time, recess, and PE.
Sheryl Chuda
01:18:51
Dr. Chan - will there be official changes to the guidance of out of school for 24 hours fever free to the 72 hours?
Laureen Johnson
01:19:22
What about PPE?? Will we have enough to open? Will there be a stable supply chain for NH needs?
Noa Bourke
01:19:51
proper guidance for staff who are pregnant? PPE-wise?
Carla Smith
01:21:55
Will you be posting the slides along with the recording?
Barbara Lynch
01:22:37
Please guide us in the need and use of Face Shield for smaller children, hearing impaired and lip readers.
Noa Bourke
01:24:23
Dr Chan- how do you feel about hypochlorous acid fogger machines to clean classrooms?
Lisa Wunderlich
01:28:19
hello everyone
Irene Mackes
01:28:52
So are we now going to need to send everyone home with any of those symptoms?
SHARON SUGHRUE
01:28:53
What is your comment on the testing data? How many of those tests are for people who are testing frequently for work requirements. Therefore more tests are being done but are we really testing more unique individuals? How does this impact the % positive?
Kendra Strout
01:29:54
if we are still going by the 6 feet rule why are we allowing desks to be 3 feet apart?
Teresa McCormack
01:30:46
Should we not be doing neb treatments for asthma?
cecile fligg
01:30:46
I hope 3ft will change to 6ft.
Bobbi Matuszak
01:30:50
I saw that Pediatric Physician Association is saying 3-6 ft. Which is accurate
Karen Freedman
01:31:00
Does a sty still represent one of the symptoms?
debra nagy
01:31:49
Half our younger students have runny noses and coughs on any given day. Do I send them all home? How do I decide who stays and who needs to go home?
Jean Picard
01:31:58
since the symptoms are so varied can you provide guidance for school nurses for when a student should be sent home
Meg Jenkins
01:32:05
@ Teresa we have not done nebs in the LTC setting since March
Teresa McCormack
01:32:23
Thank you Meg!
Karen Hammes
01:32:23
What about kids who vape? Does this increase spread of the virus?
Maureen Lorden
01:33:17
There has been information that the respiratory droplets stay in the air for up to 4 hours
Elyse Cote
01:33:19
the list is symptoms is so broad, we see multiple students in a typical day with these symptoms. How do you recommend we as school nurses deal with these symptomatic students in this pandemic? Should I be isolating and sending home everyone of these students??
Rebecca Ivatury
01:33:24
nebulizers & inhalers without a chamber cannotbe administered in school?
Noa Bourke
01:34:20
8 kids sharing one stall bathroom, one right after the other. all unmasked special needs kids. Concerns?
Sheryl Chuda
01:34:45
@Rebecca - my understanding is no nebs in school, MDI’s with chambers only.
Olivia Winkfield
01:35:44
For students in pre-k special ed and kindergarten, they will be moving around the room and not sitting in an assigned seat for the whole time at school. With this being said, would you recommend keeping the whole class home for self isolation if there is a student who is positive?
debra nagy
01:36:21
In the hospital setting nurses need to be fit tested to make sure N95 masks fit properly. Is that going to be provided for all school nurses? How often do we change the masks between symptomatic kids?
Teresa McCormack
01:37:10
Orders have been cancelled. Where are we getting PPE?
cecile fligg
01:37:49
is Homeland Security still going to provide PPE the second week of August?
Cindy Caravella
01:38:20
fit testing for N95?
Mark Hastings
01:38:48
N95s require fit testing based on OSHA directives
Noa Bourke
01:38:54
all of our students are unmasked special needs kids. They cough, sing, scream etc spontaneously. Do all staff need eyewear when closer than 6 ft?
Teresa McCormack
01:39:22
Our interactions with students are prolonged
debra nagy
01:40:03
Its not brief contact when you have a young child with a fever cough and other symptoms. Its prolonged close contact every visit to care properly for these students.
April Fitzsimmons
01:40:18
should nurses be wearing N95 when assessing symptomatic students? or while in isolation room
Willow Graham
01:40:40
Boarding school nurses and staff will potentially be taking care of positive cases on campus
Kimberly Perez
01:41:05
Do you have a surveillance plan for schools this fall?
Kathleen Lupi
01:41:13
Please define "surgical masks". Most masks available for purchase state that they are "non medical". Are these adequate for staff/students.
Chris Mitchell
01:41:33
Washable masks - need to purchase filters(recommended to use filter for one week), made here in NH: envomask.com
Rebecca Ivatury
01:41:36
procedure masks…surgical masks should be reserved for hospital
Karen VanHouten
01:41:47
Will NH DHHS notify the schools in the district if a child under 18 tests positive?
Holly Maher
01:42:08
Are there any true medical conditions that would preclude a student or staff member from wearing a mask in school?
cecile fligg
01:42:48
How many square feet is needed per child if they are to stay 6ft apart. what about buses using the 6ft model?
Michele Leclerc
01:42:57
If I dismiss a student home with symptoms of covid, do I need to dismiss siblings of that student if the sibling is symptom-free?
Anne Carey
01:43:03
How are we supposed to screen students and staff when we have over 500?
Barbara Lynch
01:43:44
temperature and questioning is recommended for the parent to do prior to coming to school or getting on the bus. How will we get this information daily.
CathyAnne Lemire
01:43:51
Are there any studies on mass temp taking, reliability of non-touch thermometers?
Barbara Lynch
01:44:34
Is there a digital means or an app possible that parents could enter the information to be retrieved by the SN.
Sheryl Chuda
01:44:37
Will there be any PSA’s for parents to keep home ANY ill student? Not sending ill students to school? We will have parents medicate a student and send to school..this won’t change!
Noa Bourke
01:44:41
we are in session now, our parents don't have thermometers, or send in temps of "146, or 85.6". We are not able to depend on this info in any manner.
Carla Smith
01:44:46
Can we receive an extracted copy of the chat with the recording link? Will you be answering all the questions verbally or via email? This chat contains some fabulous questions and I would like to see all answers are shared
Teresa McCormack
01:44:57
Has the BON been consulted regarding our scope of practice and what is being expected of us?
Terrie Hamlin
01:45:21
Are symptoms and temperature screening of students to be recorded in student records?
Bobbi Matuszak
01:45:22
Is it one study that says 3 feet is oK?
April Fitzsimmons
01:45:47
how did thy come to 3ft? this whole time it has been 6ft
debra nagy
01:46:22
Kids sitting" in close proximity" is not enough criteria. Kids are moving all day long, especially the young ones.
Jaacque Mey
01:46:27
Are there any studies available if effective distance for children? Was the Lancet study based on adults or children?
judi macord
01:46:38
I would think you would only record temps over 100.
Lisa Wunderlich
01:46:39
If we need to use 3 foot distancing shouldn’t masks be worn for kids greater than 2years old?
Sheryl Chuda
01:46:51
Will healthcare providers be encouraged by the State of NH NOT to right letters allowing a person to not have to wear a mask?
Kendra Strout
01:47:01
you mentioned distancing is not the only way to protect, why no face coverings in classrooms if they are only 3 feet apart?
Maureen Lorden
01:47:05
Standards for restaurants and other businesses has been 6 feet. How can it be acceptable for schools to be 3 feet?
Teresa McCormack
01:47:35
Leaving it to the schools about masks makes it very difficult to enforce
judi macord
01:48:11
Agreed Teresa McCormack, must be mandated.
Stephanie Pluhar
01:48:27
Teachers are not comfortable with the change from 6 feet to three feet
Kathleen Rawley
01:48:39
Our district is mandating face masks for staff as well as students
Teresa McCormack
01:49:01
Does the NHSNA have a position or guidelines for our return to school?
Colleen Roy
01:49:01
Please elaborate on your statement regarding face covering use in younger children "risks outweigh the benefits". What are the risks?
Janet Meade
01:49:37
What are recommendations for "mask breaks", storage of masks if off. (lanyards vs paperbag on desk?) Does it increase infection risk if student taking mask on and off (lunchtime etc)?
Pamela Clay-Storm
01:49:38
Consistent messaging for the public should be applied
Noa Bourke
01:49:52
My special needs kids are not able to wear masks at all, have significant difficulty with oral secretions, behavior, biting etc. Also will not stay in assigned seats. Cohort size given this?
Davlyn Wholley
01:50:19
Kathleen Rawley, what is the messaging to staff/parents/guardians/students if they choose to not wear a mask?
Teresa McCormack
01:50:50
This is not within our scope of practice!
Jean Picard
01:51:18
uncontrolled situation and face coverings- that would be the ES setting. kids are ,paving all the time
Jean Picard
01:51:32
moving
Olivia Winkfield
01:51:40
Can you please provide questions for the screenings so that it is the same across the state?
Ann Lanney
01:52:03
not clear why staff need to be screened at building, but relying on parents to screen students?
Kathleen Rawley
01:52:05
Our policy is still in draft yet to be approved by SB but I would imagine unless medically warranted they need to comply
Davlyn Wholley
01:53:30
If a student is sent home, evaluated by their HCP, and determined to not have COVID-19, can they return to school even with their mild runny nose?
cecile fligg
01:53:37
Please send these slides to all principals and superintendents. I think that they will appreciate them.
April Fitzsimmons
01:53:42
mild symptoms. if a student has a runny nose are they to be sent home?
Jean Picard
01:53:51
so any child with any of the symptoms
Karen Freedman
01:53:58
Many families have "Politicized" face masks. (Parents refuse to wear masks and practice the same with their children) What can be done in regard to asymptomatic/contagious students who refuse to wear masks? Should masks be mandated in order to enter school?
Kendra Strout
01:54:56
I assume we wait until results to have them come back?
judi macord
01:54:58
Will proof be required before reentering school that they've been tested and are neg?
Margaret Lohmann
01:55:04
Can we please have this page of who to exclude examples? so that it can be printed?
Jean Picard
01:55:05
please provide slides for this presentation- so we know when to exclude and test
Frank Edelblut
01:55:34
I will get the slides and load them on the department web site under COVID resources.
Ellen Blanchard
01:55:54
May students remove masks at desks 6 feet apart but not at 3 feet apart?
Meredith Thibodeau
01:55:55
After testing, should there be a second test? I've seen the first test come back negative and 3-5 days later, test positive. How long should they be excluded?
Amy Cook
01:56:16
I've read that up to 30% of tests give false negatives. Is this still the case? If so, even if the child tests, they might be positive and receive a negative result.
April Fitzsimmons
01:56:29
is research still showing that tests will only test positive while virus is shedding?
Kathleen Lupi
01:56:31
Recommend testing? So it is not required?
Laureen Johnson
01:56:32
along with my question regarding PPE availability, will NH have enough tests to administer?
Rachel Morrison
01:56:34
Testing is taking 10-14 days and some parents that are just going back to work are excepted to keep children home with each occurance? Not to mention as ourselves and other staff members in the building. I called around to testing centers and the tests are taking a long time.
debra nagy
01:57:01
Are primary care providers being prepared for this mass influx of students for testing? This list of symptoms is going to result in almost every student visiting the health office being sent for testing, especially winter months.
April Fitzsimmons
01:57:18
why did the CDC change from 72hrs to 24hrs? hasn't all research shown 72
Shawna Clifton
01:58:31
Our local pediatricians aren’t automatically testing people for covid. They are saying to stay home and then go to the ED if respiratory issues. So is that going to change?
Sarah Boas
01:58:34
Or just the opposite . . . I know of five staff members from a local LTC facility that were all asymptomatic and had "false" positive results during routine screening. When testing was done again the following day and labs were sent to a different lab they all tested negative.
Wendy Chesney
01:58:59
Do school nurses need to quarantine? Who would take care of the health needs of the students?
cecile fligg
01:59:04
How will we secure enough tests?
Elyse Cote
01:59:07
can you send us this PowerPoint?
Janet Meade
01:59:07
If improved sx, but not completely resolved, they are ok if still continuing to cough as long as improved?
Kelly Paul
02:00:17
@shawna most require symptoms to test and Ive seen some say if you have symptoms, treat as positive and still given no test.
Shawna Clifton
02:01:22
My town will test everyone. But the peds are not sending kids to be tested.
Erin Stewart
02:01:26
it seems we are moving from actual assessment (looking at throats, listening to lungs) to triage, checking temp, taking history and sending home
Laura Gifford
02:02:01
what about keeping window open to ventilate when in isolation
Teresa McCormack
02:03:20
Does the DHHS have a decision tree for us to follow? It would be nice if we all practiced the same guidelines statewide.
cecile fligg
02:03:22
Occ Health will be overwhelmed with calls and patients. How will they increase staff to manage this?
Lynn Brokus
02:03:26
If we are exposed and have to be quarantined, can we collect unemployment?
Jaacque Mey
02:03:41
I am concerned about the Teachers/staff if exposed to any students/staff with COVID 19. What is our recommendation? Do they quarantine?
Lisa Therrien
02:04:06
Can we keep several students in one isolation room sitting six feet apart with a divider of some sort
debra nagy
02:04:18
If we are in a room with someone whose symptomatic without proper PPE and so as nurses would need to quarantine for 14 days, then doesn't that apply to all staff and students exposed in a classroom or hallways, instead of just those sitting at desks around the students?
Terrie Hamlin
02:04:39
This would be a great presentation for school administrators
CathyAnne Lemire
02:04:58
Are curtains (plastic or cloth) adequate for separation?
Meg Jenkins
02:05:27
Can this be shared to the superintendent and principal associations?
Laura Prignano
02:05:49
can we get a compilation of all these questions?
Erin Gauthier
02:06:05
Please make this presentation shareable
cecile fligg
02:06:06
where will we find or afford sub's for nurses when we are out
Frank Edelblut
02:06:14
I will be saving the chat and also post that on our web site.
Amy Adams
02:06:16
who is going to be responsible for contact tracing?
Erin Stewart
02:06:26
Debra, I think we are never without PPE
Ellen Warecki
02:06:41
The sub question is a great one…I sub at schools and the pay can be appalling
Teresa McCormack
02:07:16
I have 20 days worth of PPE. Where is everyone getting their PPE these days. School health cancelled my orders>
debra nagy
02:07:19
Is there extra staff on public health because the number of calls coming in to get guidance on this is going to be extraordinary
judi macord
02:07:29
I would think public health would be responsible for contact tracking?
cecile fligg
02:07:32
Sub pay needs to be $200./day during COVID
cecile fligg
02:08:06
sUBS WILL BE TRAVELING THROUGHOUT A VARIETY OF DISTRITS. Will they need to quarantine for two weeks after each school they sub for
Kay Romero
02:08:09
What should a school do if a student refuses to comply with safety measures such as wearing a mask?
Teresa McCormack
02:09:00
Would the administrator of this presentation please send us the powerpoint slides?
Rebecca Ivatury
02:09:14
I understand no singing like choir, but can younger kids sing through their masks - this is a big part of classroom learning in young grades
Kelly Ducharme
02:09:41
I agree with some. I would really like to share this presentation with my admin.
Meg Jenkins
02:09:45
Cecile It should be that anyways!!
cecile fligg
02:09:58
Where are all of the Medical Directors?
Alexandra Ewing
02:10:16
will this powerpoint presentation be available as a resource after this meeting
Ellen Warecki
02:10:20
My district is $125/day…needs to be more
pamela hausler
02:10:25
Since there are so many questions, could Dr. Chan review the questions and send the Q & A to the group in a written form? Many of the questions I am sure have been answered with the presentation.
Ellen Warecki
02:10:28
For sub pay
Erin Stewart
02:10:36
we routinely have kids come back the day after we send them home with fever- parents don’t follow the policies even when reminded. the logistics of tracking all kids sent home, when they come back and keeping them out will need much more effort than we can do alone as school nurses
Karen Townsend
02:10:40
what if you do not have a window?
debra nagy
02:10:43
How do we conduct PE? Keeping students in classroom cohorts will require PPE indoors during bad weather? If sports are discouraged due to risks, how do we do this?
cecile fligg
02:11:06
exhaust fans to bring air out of classrooms
Jean Corvinus
02:11:06
can fans be used to exhaust outside
Erin Gauthier
02:11:06
window units ac appropriate?
debra nagy
02:11:08
PE indoors, not PPE
Amy Cook
02:11:28
Our schools do not have AC. The 5th floor is unbearably hot in September without masks. No fans? I don't know how any learning will take place.
Jean Picard
02:11:30
a decision tree from DHHS for symptoms and dismissal to home for school nurses would be really needed heading into this school year. Can DHHS provide this
Heather Boyd
02:11:59
second Jean Picard
Heather Boyd
02:12:11
s request for a decision tree.
Meg Jenkins
02:12:16
Jean agreed!!
Stephanie Pluhar
02:12:30
What is the current turn around time for testing?
Katrina Mochamps
02:12:45
When there is a mask break, where should students and staff put their masks. Many adults seem to wear them below their chins, rather than take them off.
Colleen Krochmal
02:13:10
I also agree with Jean- that would be very helpful.
Kimberly Perez
02:13:23
Should districts review HVAC systems (both for cooling in the early fall and heating in the winter) to determine if air circulation will spread droplets?
Bobbi Matuszak
02:13:27
did anyone else just lose audio?

I agree with Jean Picard as well. The list of "potential" symptoms noted at this point, basically tells me if a student comes in with any vague complaints, they should be dismissed. The potential of an exposure and the liability of keeping even a "mildly symptomatic" student in the building is so great.
Anne Carey
02:14:52
Oh I know! They need to be held accountable!
Michelle Austin

Is there discussion among government officials regarding supports for parents who will be displaced from work to care for sick children? Compliance rates for keeping sick children home would improve if employers were unable to take punitive actions against parents who need to call out sick to care for children, or who provide sufficient sick time for this reason (both must be mandates). Work is the number one reason I hear from parents who are not able to care for their sick child, and why dismissal times are often significantly delayed when children are sent home.

Thank you!
Ellen Warecki
02:19:20
There a lot of specific questions that need addressing. I also think the DOE needs to address sub nurses. There will be a great need for them. Most districts have one or two subs but many have none. The sub pay is terrible and with this added responsibility/exposure many subs will not be willing to work for the pay. Vast majority pays less than $ 125/day
