What to make sure everyone understands the difference between “isolation” and Quarantine: at least as I understand the CDC’s definitions. Isolation refers to separating a sick individual who is contagious while quarantine restricts the movement and separates people that have been exposed. 
APH - agree?

As you develop the quarantine strategy, could we get some clarity around whether minors (RHY, not CPS) would be eligible for a motel room?
karmanv

No Lara. We can send out confirmed definitions

From the current Isolation Facility plan which is in line with the algorithm below (per APH):Quarantine (asymptomatic clients who have been exposed to positive COVID-19) & Isolation (symptomatic Person Under Investigation with or without positive test)

Other communities have included basic needs (food, laundry, etc.) and health services in the operations plan for Q/I hotel and alternative spaces.

National consultants are working with City and ECHO to develop operations plans that are inclusive.

When this shortage in testing predicted to be resolved?
Barbara Poppe
27:52
The shortage of testing is a national problem
IritUmani

Must be crazily frustrating for people like Kathleen to wait in a dormitory situation without residents being tested. My support to you. And is there something that we, as a group, can do to change this situation?

Would the hotline be open to a dedicated line just for Street Outreach workers?
Julie
30:39
We have been working on a pre-screening process that we anticipate rolling out ASAP (aiming for tomorrow); this will focus on symptoms, risks and potential exposure. It's a first step while awaiting the national testing issue to be improved.
Laura Evanoff
32:06
Keep typing any questions or comments - if we don't get to them today we will work on finding answers and bringing it back to the group during the call tomorrow morning!

We would need immediate access once someone identified as symptomatic.

Vella and Laura---million thanks for your work.
Julie

@krdorrier - Yes. As soon as hotline folks are trained, this process will roll out. If we roll out before they are ready, it will overload the system and not be immediate. There's a group focused on safe transportation options as well so we can get people where they need to go based on the direction from the hotline nurses.
