It is my understanding there is NO funding for OTHER safety net clinics. Is that correct? They are open and also needing support.

FFCRA - for employees on already o furlough, do protections apply when act went into effect? if the employee comes down with symptoms after leaving active work (cough/symptoms or school/daycare closures, etc)
Phyllis Albritton
38:42
Can you also tell us how the stockpiles are going to be distributed? Are community-based clinics on the list of sites to receive stockpile? We are all hoping so since they are open and trying to keep pressure off of the hospitals, but don't know where to get that answer.

Undocumented immigrants can access testing without cost-sharing. They just need a doctor's order and a matching ID . It does not need to be an official government ID. Any ID.For undocumented immigrants, nutrition assistance is also available through schools without identification.

Have heard (from Gov office via intermediaries) that DACA recipients and perhaps others with work authorization should apply for unemployment benefits. Trying to find out for sure if this is the case. I’m getting quite a few questions from employers and DACA recipients on this. Thank you - Pete w/ Mountain Dreamers in Summit County.

Several communities do not have safety net clinics. And it still costs uninsured to get the pre-tests for COVID.
Sara Monge
50:39
Yes, I believe we will be able to send out the chat questions with the resources and recording
Dawn Joyce

@Dede - I am not familiar with what is included in the 1115 waiver. Uninsured testing is covered with 100% federal funding. FMAP will also increase by 6.2%.
Dawn Joyce
51:14
@Susan Roberts - for the 3rd package, we will share a document outlining the health provisions in our follow up.
Dawn Joyce

Additionally, the follow up slides we will share will have more details about paid sick leave and FMLA changes.
Dawn Joyce

Excellent question about homeless individuals that are ultra vulnerable at this time. We have not seen anything included in federal packages for this important population.
Lacey Champion

There has been A LOT of problems with trying to apply for unemployment online and the website keeps crashing.
Lacey Champion
53:45
Does the state have a plan to make it easier to apply for unemployment? I know people who have been trying for the past 3-4 days to apply and are unable to
Dawn Joyce
54:11
@Lacey, the draft 3rd package requires states to ensure that people can apply for unemployment online, in person, or over the phone. That said, sites are limited by technology of course.
Lorena Garcia
54:17
what about the detained and incarcerated population. is the state doing anything there???
Phyllis Albritton

Yay for the FQs! Unfortunately, that does not include the safety net clinics in the state that are open and are NOT FQs. Glad to hear FQs are getting relief!!

Dayna Scott - would love to talk with you about coordination with local hotels to help people experiencing homelessness. I am with Violence Free Colorado and we have been encouraging domestic violence shelters and other domestic violence service providers across the state to use hotels/motels to shelter survivors who are symptomatic, have tested positive, or are concerned about being exposed in shelter.
