please say again what percentage of those with COVID have a fever as a symptom>?
Mary Croteau
13:35
What is considered "prolonged" contact?
Marion Anastasia
14:37
What is your opinion? the state is recommending that for the start of the school year, teachers who have traveled be allowed to work if they traveled by private car, had no close contact with anyone with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 and wear a face covering at work for at least 14 days.
Kristin Franklin
22:39
Shouldn't we also screen for people who have had had house guests from someplace other than New England within the past 14 days?
Jerry Gregoire
23:55
I had a question from a parent asking if we were going to have students change masks “every 20 minutes per CDC guidelines”. Is this necessary?
Robert Gadomski
24:47
Can the DOE send this presentation to all of the superintendents?
Angela Adams
26:08
We will post the recording of this meeting and the presentation on the DOE web site.

What is recommended for schools without central HVAC regarding airflow? Open windows? Portable AC units, HEPA filters? I am seeing a lot of different information out there.
Jessica Pine
32:52
How long do you recommend we keep schools closed after a positive case is reported?
Sarah Surrette
34:05
What about families that travel for work? Parents are pilots or flight attendants or ER doctor/nurse working directly with COVID patients or under investigation of COVID? Are they allowed to come to school? How do private schools accept their enrollment?
Amy Clark
37:15
Is there any recommendation of water fountain use in schools? Also, is there any recommendation for discontinuing use of air hand dryers in bathrooms? Thank you.
Ann Diorio
37:22
Angela, can you please post the link where this will be found after posting. There is just so much on the website now.
Lisa Witte
39:11
I don't think the idea of 'exceptions' to the quarantine is a good idea...
Lisa Witte
39:14
My two cents
Bill Lupini
40:29
This guidance on teachers traveling would be very difficult to explain to parents who would not have the same flexibility for their students? Frankly, this feels more like a rule of convenience than anything based in science.
Lee Anne Robertspm
40:44
If a student is sent home w/symptoms does the class need to stay out and do families need to be notified?
Lori Noordergraaf
41:47
will you post-share the power point?
Angela Adams
42:26
I will post the presentation and the recording on the DOE web site. We will let you know where it is posted.
David Backler
42:53
If we have a student with mild symptoms and we send them home should we still expect them to be out for 10 days?
Bill Lupini
43:00
Have you expressed your view recommending against physical and close contact sports to the NHIAA?
Lisa Witte
45:10
It's been very problematic for us - we've taken a hard line based on your recommendations about contact sports and it has not gone over well.
Beth McClure
45:13
If students are seated at a table that does not allow for 3 feet of social distancing but there is a plexiglass barrier between them, does that layer of protection allow us to have, say, 3 children at a table?
Kristen Stuart
45:14
Can you post a link to the slide show?
Steve Zadravec
45:47
will we be contacted by DHHS for any positive case? what will that timeline look like and what would our role be in contact tracing?
Debra Taylor
45:54
please post slideshow link.
Sarah Shor
47:50
If anyone who’s been within 6 feet for more than 10 non-consecutive minutes is considered a risk, then how can we not exclude siblings?
Donna Palley
49:34
Should our students be wearing masks when they are learning or playing outside?
Debra Taylor
52:07
please post the slide show.
David Thiel
53:31
Do you recommend that all teachers be COVID tested before they begin to interact with students?
Mary Croteau
55:24
What about Fans?
Eric McGee
55:52
yes - what about fans in classrooms?
Mary Croteau
56:06
Meaning fans situated near windows to bring in more outside air.
Kristen Stuart
57:25
Who and how do we notify if/when we have positive test cases in ou school communities?
Bill Lupini
01:01:20
Just for clarity, your recommendation would be that we should not be playing high school football this fall . . . is that correct?
Lisa Witte
01:01:31
NHIAA thinks everyone should play
Tracy Strout
01:01:31
Is there guidance regarding carpet, no carpet?
Mary Croteau
01:03:00
Where can our COVID "contact person" access training?
Kristen Stuart
01:04:26
is there a number or email specifically we use to contact you?
Kathleen Murphy
01:04:40
Is there a metric that would help us in deciding whether to pivot from one model to another?
