Hi everyone from Sahar
good afternoon one and all
good afternoon, it takes up to 14 days for symptoms to appear, how long after exposure does it take to test positive?
@Katherine Williams we see a doll in your camera view, I think you need to turn the camera around
For some reason I wasnt able to get in the meeting. sorry!
Wendy & Jeff Wood
what are the chances of newborns contracting
These resources are posted at www.oacas.org
Thank you for your attendance.
Hi, can you give us information on Kawasaki disease? it was on the new today and a few children have it in Montreal and the number of children is larger in Europe
If children are required to attend face to face access with parents what protocols would you suggest for when the reenter the home ? Ie. clothes in wash, etc
Thank you Katharine!
Is infection rate in children low or is it possible that they just aren't symptomatic and are spreading virus?
Thank you Katharine!!
any particular recommendations re: young children with HIV?
Awesome information Katharine! 👌👏 Thank you 😊
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.
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?
Hi Catharine, will children in care be required to take the vaccine if one is introduced? particularly children without a physical or mental problem
Will child welfare workers be offered a vaccine once it is introduced?
Are the tests in Canada accurate and reliable and readily available? What kind of tests are they, blood, swabs etc?
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?
also, do you have any resources to share related to supporting children's MH needs during the pandemic?
Can someone get the virus more than once?
Chantal Ron Paradis
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.
what is effective screening if ppl are sick and don't know?
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?
what about kids in care and does not have no immunization
should we give masks for children playing outside in the yard? how about other activities such as biking?
frontline workers and the children as well?
What agent should we clean surfaces with to protect against this virus?
yes the workers.
What would you recommend if the foster parent/kin caregiver is immune compromised and child is to attend access visits with a parent?
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.
are you saying that we should ignore what the World Health Organization is telling us about social distancing. when it comes to access
what if access leads to an outbreak in the fostering community
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?
like what is happening in the nursing homes
would you suggest salt water to gargle also for nasal irrigation .
what about kids who does not have immunizations and in care with the agency.Are they at risk
Thank you Catherine & Wendy
that was my question too
MD are giving immunization but only one foster care giver allowed call early for appointments
How affective is hand sanitizer if no access to wash hands Ie: in the car leaving grocery store, appointment?
what kind of "wipes" should be used? I have heard Lysol doesn't work and one should use alcohol wipes is this accurate?
Thank you very much, very informative
