How do we protect our workers as face-to-face access is now being introduced for children in care? how do we protect the children? and Families? From as health and safety standpoint, our members are concerned.
Michelle Smith
02:25:08
what suggestions do you have to ease caregivers worries about allowing safe access with bioparents and minimzing risk of bringing covid back into foster home?
Karen
02:25:14
Hi Catharine, will children in care be required to take the vaccine if one is introduced? particularly children without a physical or mental problem
MWilliamson
02:25:58
Will child welfare workers be offered a vaccine once it is introduced?
Bernadette Bowyer
02:26:15
Are the tests in Canada accurate and reliable and readily available? What kind of tests are they, blood, swabs etc?
pbowden
02:26:32
I heard today that there is new research that children are not carriers of Covid-19. With all of the different sources, is this a true story?
Sheri.Hyman
02:27:18
also, do you have any resources to share related to supporting children's MH needs during the pandemic?
L Blackwood-Japal

Can someone get the virus more than once?
Chantal Ron Paradis
02:28:30
as a foster parent, once access visits are reinstated with bio families, for older youth social distancing may be a little easier to manage. however, for younger children, it may be very difficult. what can we do to mitigate exposure in these situations.
enewton
02:29:12
what is effective screening if ppl are sick and don't know?
Marguerita powell
02:30:09
it is allergy season for some how do I know the difference?
Chantalle and Chris

You have mentioned leaving objects in a garage. How long should it be left. How long does the virus live on objects? in the air?
Vastie Mohan
02:31:06

Ailing的 iPhone

Tanya Clarke

frontline workers and the children as well?
Lori Galliera
02:33:27
What agent should we clean surfaces with to protect against this virus?

02:33:54
yes the workers.
amarquis
02:35:21
What would you recommend if the foster parent/kin caregiver is immune compromised and child is to attend access visits with a parent?
CCampbell
02:36:08
During access visits between parents and children would you recommend PPE for all parties involved in the access visit and to what level. i.e. is a surgical mask and gloves enough or if symptom free would washing hands and distancing be enough.
Juliana Ciach
02:37:02
are you saying that we should ignore what the World Health Organization is telling us about social distancing. when it comes to access
Juliana Ciach
02:38:07
what if access leads to an outbreak in the fostering community
Bernadette Bowyer
02:38:14
Will OACAS be developing policies around access visits, worker, family, kin contact with each other again. What baselines will have to be met in order to restart the process, a lot of the foster parent community falls in the older segments of society?
Juliana Ciach
02:38:37
like what is happening in the nursing homes
Bernadette Bowyer
02:40:14

Marguerita powell
