We just received the options through our school district for next year.  In person or online, with the ability to switch at the end of each 6 weeks.

 

I think...we'll stick with the virtual schooling we'd already looked at.  I imagine going through an established system would be better organized than the frantic rush I'm sure is happening in the local school district to figure things out.

Conditions that qualify as mask exemptions have smaller scope than many realize

 
By: Scripps National
Posted at 2:15 PM, Jul 20, 2020
 
and last updated 4:26 PM, Jul 20, 2020

There's some misunderstanding about medical exemptions to wearing masks.

A legal expert tells us the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) makes it so businesses must make reasonable accommodations to everyone. The key word there is reasonable.

“The problem with what's going on right now and some of the things that have been going around the internet, is that the advice, kind of spurious advice that's being put forth is to use the provision for reasonable accommodation as a sword rather than as a shield,” said David Tarrien, an associate professor at WMU-Cooley Law School.

 

Tarrien says the conditions that qualify as a mask exemption have a smaller scope than many realize. For example, he says asthma patients likely do not fall under that scope. But later stages of pulmonary respiratory disease, emphysema, or a serious mobility issue can be "legitimate" reasons.

Furthermore, you could face repercussions for lying.

“If they're claiming that they have a disability and they don't have a disability, if that is found out, then there are criminal and civil penalties for that,” said Tarrien.

As for privacy concerns, Tarrien says store employees are allowed to ask customers why they're not wearing a mask. If you refuse to answer, they may refuse entry.

Even if you give a legitimate reason to not wear a mask, you may still be refused entry. That's because the ADA does not apply if there's a “direct threat” to someone's health or safety.

Tarrien says HIPAA privacy laws also do not apply in this kind of situation. That only protects your information from being shared inappropriately among medical facilities.

I have an extended family member whose daughter is a school principal. They have decided that it will be a virtual classroom until January when the second semester will start. They will reevaluate then. 

 

Another friend said they will have classrooms for middle school through high school. They will do it on a rotation basis. She didn't elaborate on how they would do that. She did say that no one is allowed in the building except for students and school personell. No parents allowed in the building. She said they will test all the students temperature four times a day. Everyone must wear a mask at all times. Those logistics boggle the mind. 

 

Both of these parents live in Maryland and are subject to change.

The state says that 10,347 new coronavirus cases and 90 deaths occurred on Monday in Florida, and that statewide, there have now been 360,394 infected and 5,072 Florida residents killed.

Unauthorized sources say the figures collected by the state are about 18-20% higher, depending on the figure.

We had a blackout for several hours last night and on until maybe three or four this morning.   No AC until about then, anyway.  Storm with 60 mph gusts and some hail, out of nowhere.  No significant damage here, though.  The well is still down, so no showers--just sponge baths to cool off, just like after a hurricane.  As to the following article, Arizona should take heed:

Is Florida a coronavirus ‘epicenter?’ How to interpret the numbers amid an outbreak.

 

 

As Florida’s coronavirus cases and deaths surged to record levels in July, some national media reports labeled the state an “epicenter” for the disease.

Experts generally shy from using the word epicenter, but is Florida worse off than other states? Are we the outlier?

Delays and varying levels of testing make apples-to-apples comparisons across states and regions challenging.

But looking at the raw number of new cases, the number of new cases per capita and the percentage of people testing positive can provide some context for what’s happening in Florida.

Several data points are stubbornly high, which means Floridians are increasingly at risk of encountering people carrying the virus.

To get a clearer picture, here are some ways experts look at infections, and what the numbers can teach us about the outbreak in Florida.

Cases in Florida are growing fast.

The daily number of cases is the data point that makes the most headlines, including when Florida broke a national record with 15,300 reported cases in a single day earlier this month.

It may seem simplistic, but this number is essential for informing policy and public safety decisions, experts say.

“The total amount of cases is important because it speaks to the amount of resources that will be needed to control the epidemic and medical care for the ill,” said Jose Szapocznik, a professor of public health at the University of Miami.

However, the new cases reported by the Florida Department of Health can be days or weeks old, and irregular reporting from testing laboratories can lead to dips and bumps in the data. Just such an irregularity may have been behind this month’s record-setting spike.

To help account for these random dips and bumps, experts typically use the average of cases over the past seven days.

“When you smooth over a seven-day period,” said Tom Hladish, an infectious disease researcher at the University of Florida, “you tend to get rid of those weekly artifacts that have nothing to do with disease transmission and everything to do with test processing.”

In Florida, one or two days of newsworthy spikes have given way to daily numbers consistently higher than 10,000 new cases per day. In the past week, 11,000 new cases have been reported each day on average — almost double what the state was seeing at the end of June.

In the past month, Florida has seen nearly 208,000 new infections, or about 10,000 per day on average, more than any other state over the same period.

But the overall state numbers don’t tell the whole story. Instead, we looked at regions that the U.S. Census Bureau calls “core-based statistical areas.” These areas are large enough to average out random noise, but still small enough to give a better idea of where the most concerning hot spots are located.

 

Looking at the data this way, Florida has three of the 10 fastest-growing hot spots in the country: Miami, Tampa Bay and Orlando.

The Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach area has seen nearly 76,000 new infections since the beginning of the month, or nearly 4,000 infections per day on average. This is the highest number of any U.S. region.

The Tampa-St Petersburg-Clearwater region is the eighth-highest in the country, with more than 21,000 infections, or nearly 1,200 infections per day, since the beginning of July.

Orlando follows at ninth, with almost 20,000 infections since the beginning of the month.

Just looking at the number of cases can be misleading because places with larger populations will have more cases and 1,000 cases in a large city can look very different from 1,000 cases in a rural town.

Cases per capita is more informative when thinking about your personal risk of infection, said Matthew Hitchings, an infectious disease researcher at the University of Florida. “Higher per-capita infection rate means your risk of having contact with an infectious person is higher.”

Take the examples of Miami and Los Angeles, the two cities with the greatest increase in cases since July 1. Miami has seen 75,000 cases in that time, 25 percent more than the 60,000 in Los Angeles.

However, Los Angeles has nearly double the population of Miami, which means there are more than twice as many new cases per person in Miami than in Los Angeles.

Since July 1, Miami has seen more than one new case for every 100 residents, by far the highest of any high-population area in the country. Among regions with more than 1 million residents, four of the 10 with the highest per-capita infections are in Florida.

Tampa Bay is the seventh-highest of the large regions, with 66 new infections per 10,000 residents.

Experts rely on the number of infections per 10,000 residents when making comparisons across states and countries, said Jeffery Shaman, a professor of epidemiology at Columbia University. However, “those numbers can mean very different things depending on the testing capacity, so it all makes for comparisons across geographies a little challenging.”

To help control for differences in testing rates, experts also look to the percent positive rate.

Even controlling for testing, Florida stands out.

Like the number of cases per capita, the percentage of people that test positive for the coronavirus shows how much the virus has infiltrated a population.

“Higher than 10 percent for several days is a dangerous sign,” said Ali Mokdad, a professor of health metric science at the University of Washington, and “you want to see this coming down as you do more tests.”

Testing in Florida has ramped up in the past month, doubling from nearly 30,000 tests per day in mid June to 60,000 in the past week on average. Still, the percentage of tests that returned positive crept up and up, increasing from 10 percent a month ago to nearly 20 percent in the past week.

A percent positive rate of 20 percent means that one infection is discovered for every five tests. Only Arizona has seen a higher percentage in the past month.

However, tracking the percent positive across time or between locations can be misleading. Changes in reporting or testing strategies can affect the results just as much as developments in infections.

“An extreme example would be if a state or county decided to stop testing hospitalized patients and start testing random people on the street,” Hitchings said. “This would drop your percent positive but not in a way that reflects a drop in cases.”

The Florida Department of Health, which releases testing and case data, has come under fire after the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported that the state may be underestimating the percent positive. The Sun Sentinel found that the state may have been double counting negative test results and combining two test types into a single statistic.

Recent reporting has also highlighted misreporting and delays by the testing labs.

Across Florida, the percent positive varies from as high as 30 percent to as low as 10 percent. In both the Miami and Tampa Bay regions, one infection is discovered for about every five tests.

Even public health experts like Shaman say it’s frustrating to follow all of these numbers when so much is changing.

“It’s not a random sample of everybody and it’s not ideal from a science perspective,” Shaman said. “But from a public health perspective the primary goal is to use resources as best we can to figure out what’s going on.”

What we do know is that the number of cases in Florida continues to increase and the percentage of people testing positive remains high.

As this trend continues, experts warn that you’re more and more likely to run into someone carrying the coronavirus.

That’s when precautions like social distancing and wearing a mask become even more important, said Hitchings. “The idea of masks is to reduce your probability that, upon meeting an infectious person, you actually get transmission.”

And that’s another thing experts agree on: When the numbers feel overwhelming, the only thing you have in your control is your behavior.

“If we wear our masks, we can open our businesses faster. If we wear our masks, we can delay the onset of the second wave,” said Mokdad. “We do our part to save the economy and save more lives. … I think you get the message.”

July 21, 2020 The New York Times
Transmission among the troops
As the coronavirus surges across the United States, the military is emerging as a potential source of outbreaks both at home and abroad. Since April, the infection rate among the country’s military services has doubled, and more than 20,000 members have tested positive for the virus.

The U.S. is the only country in the world with a military presence in dozens of other countries, and outbreaks have emerged on bases in Japan and South Korea, and in war zones including Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria.

There is also evidence that the military may be spreading the virus domestically. Officials in Georgia and California have traced outbreaks to local bases, which can be ideal environments for the virus to spread. Barracks are tightly packed, intense elbow-to-elbow training sessions are the norm, and recruits often head off base to socialize at bars and beaches.

Our colleague Thomas Gibbons-Neff, a former Marine who covers the military, said that military bases generally followed public health guidelines at higher rates than the communities that surround them. But members of the military skew younger, he said, and as with young people across the country, many are exhausted by lockdowns and want to get back to normal life.

“The invincibility complex is there, how could it not be?” he told us. “I think if you’re fine with joining and going into harm’s way, then you’re probably fine with getting the virus.”

Exporting the virus to bases abroad may also damage America’s relationships with local populations, he added.

“It adds to the quiver of issues of having American troops stationed in your country,” Thomas said. “If you’re in Germany or Okinawa, there’s usually a benefit to having troops there, but this is one more thing for people there to ask, ‘Well, what is the benefit?’”

Many U.S. cases aren’t being recorded
Epidemiologists have long believed that the actual number of virus cases in the U.S. is much higher than the official count, which is currently more than 3.8 million. Now, a new analysis based on antibody tests, the largest of its kind to date, has proved them right.

The study, by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, found that the number of infections in different parts of the country was two to 13 times higher than the reported case count, suggesting that many people who were asymptomatic or did not seek treatment might have helped spread the virus.

But the findings also indicated that the virus has touched relatively few people — only 2 to 3 percent — in many regions, including South Florida. New York City showed a rate of 23.3 percent, but even that is far from achieving herd immunity, which experts say could happen once 60 percent of a population has been exposed.

A plea for standardization. Dr. Thomas Frieden, a former C.D.C. director, called on state health officials today to adopt uniform data reporting guidelines for the virus, which other public health experts have said were long overdue.

A nonprofit health advocacy group that Dr. Frieden now runs concluded that states report only 40 percent of the data needed to fight the pandemic. In an Op-Ed for The Times, he outlined the 15 indicators that his organization recommends should be regularly collected and published.

Nothing good will come out from this.  It is just getting worse.  VA is under mandatory for wearing mask and there are so many that will NOT wear one. It is not because of a medical condition either. They just don't think they should have to wear one. DH has a good medical reason for not wearing one and he just stays home. If I take him anywhere, he still puts on a mask though with his cong. heart failure it is harder for him to breath, he still does it. If he decides to go to a store with me it is only to get out of house. He stays in car with AC unit. So I pack a small cooler with drinks for him and me as well since it is so hot out right now.

I live in the same county as The Cleveland Clinic. Today they mandated that CLOTH masks are not to be worn in any of their buildings. Only paper masks. You may wear cloth masks outside on the campus' but not inside. They said they are finding issues with cloth. I heard it on the news but couldn't find anything online about it. 

 

Here is my thought on it. IT'S ONLY MY THOUGHT!

 

In looking for paper masks I kept reading that they were " non-woven". That seemed to be a major marketing plus. I think that might be the key. Cloth is woven so there are tiny holes. You can easily spread the fibers apart. With the paper masks they more solid. It's like the fibers are melded together. Also, the paper masks are three layers with one layer 'usually' water resistant. Just my idea. 

 

So, The Cleveland Clinic does not recommend CLOTH masks to the point of banning them in their buildings.

 

Anyone sew here? I wonder if the fusible web fabric would be good mask matreial? It's pretty thick and non-woven. I think. Might be too heavy though? Just thinking out loud. With all of the places requiring masks, they could be hard to get again in the future.

A dear gentleman I know has it. 

He is in a VA facility in Texas due to brain damage from a series of bad falls.  Those things feed each other.  He usually knows he is in a hospital, but usually thinks he is in another state or country, and recognizes his wife when she calls even though he cannot remember her name.  (A few contacts a week is the secret to premium patient care.)  Alzheimer's has also kicked in, and he had a condition that caused the falls.

So recovery is not necessarily what the prayers are for.  Just that whatever is meant to be for him--recovery or release--comes to him without distress.

Only his wife is allowed to call him in the Covid Unit.  Turns out only she and one of their five children were calling anyway.  The nurses are impatient with these calls.  "Ma'am, can you even understand him?"  "It doesn't matter, I love to hear his voice."  Heavy sigh.

It took us until April 28 to hit a million confirmed cases.

1 million cases to 2 million took another 45 days. 

2 million to 3 million took 27 days.

3 million to 4 million took 15 days.

Sheeeesh......I think you just gave me the reason why my mom is now having so much trouble doing their shopping....she also has congestive heart and living at high altitude and very conscientiously wears the mask.  :o   Oye!  We've been pushing her to let DH get her groceries again cuz of this severe fatigue she experiences when she shops.  She said she "was going to have to let DH do her shopping again...as county numbers of COVID keep going up"   Yet DH's going tomorrow and she shopped today.  Then my dad has to carry it ALL up their stairs.  Doesn't do him much good either with him being on O2 all the time.  

 

Thank you for mentioning this.  We'll have to consider this!

DH and I have been of that opinion too.  He wears a cloth mask that's provided at the restaurant.  He has to keep changing them out....they get soaked with his respiration.  THEN they are not letting air thru well at all and you get O2 deprivation.  He had to tell another worker to go change masks when she got a rather sudden, severe headache.  And that's only part of the problem. 

 

The weave...or 'felting'  is key to how much protection vs O2.  Some are wearing crochet masks.....most of them know it's a protest.  Some think they're pretty and have the brains of a toad, thinking they will provide protection.  :buttercup:   Some homemade ones are fairly good....if folks have put some thot into the material they use.  But...a good, ole bandana hankie works to catch most sneeze/cough exhalations.  Certainly better if you hold it tight over your face if you're sneezing/coughing.  But this does not address normal exhalations unless something is over your mouth/nose all the time you're indoors ...cuz we're talking airborne.  :sigh: 

 

Frankly, at doc appt, I put my large, folded-4-layers, bandana over my surgical mask [the real medical type...we've had a box for years from DH's office] if I'm going to cough/sneeze cuz of the blow-out on each side.  Talk about 'exhalation valves'....   But breathing thru even those made me overheated.  Masks are not without problems, for sure!

 

MtRider ....but we keep trying to adapt!  :shrug:

Some think they're pretty and have the brains of a toad,  :laughkick:  :laughkick: 

 

I'm looking for a mask that says "Trump 2020" on the front. If they weren't $20 each, I'd buy a few cases and pass them out to my friends/family. If enough people wore them, the mask requirement from our liberal county seat would be dropped.    :grinning-smiley-044:    :lol:

 

As more and more stores require masks, I'm shopping less and less. I'm finding the bank account is rewarding me for my anti-mask attitude.    :amen:

Well I'm on the not-liberal side ....usually.    ;)    I don't think mask usage is a strict split with Red/Blue.  But like other topics, "crossing the aisle" has become ....touchy.  :shrug:  Not that I pay attention much about that.  :grinning-smiley-044:

 

I DO side [with whoever] on masks only in areas where it IS spreading and for activities where distancing isn't possible. We have counties where there has been 0-5 cases in 6 months.  No sense there.  I hope our Gov will give a variance in those places.  But our county is going up right now.  It would really help DH, myself, and my fragile folks not to be hiding  :behindsofa:  for the next couple years. 

 

If we were all young/healthy....    :shrug:    But if I'm going to die...COVID seems like a particularly gruesome, terrifying way to go.  My mom's cousin died of COPD....nasty!  :(   [ I was THANKFUL yesterday that the Blow-In-Tube test for that was normal!]  

 

And having constant bronchial issues for the past 7 months ANYway.....  I've been quite protective of my breathing.  [Me and this COUGH, have GOT to part ways sooooooon!  Hmph!]

 

MtRider  :ph34r:   :americanflag:    Fully for RIGHTS; Fully for RESPONSIBILITY.....and the balance of those is tricky.  :imoksmiley:

Mt. Rider, Cong. heart failure will zap your energy as well. DH has no energy to do much as he gets very short winded if he tries to do much. He can't walk very far without sitting down to rest.  But hoping the heart rehab will help that. 

We talked with his doctor today by phone and he will be calling again next week. We are now thinking about him having a procedure done called Watchman.  It is a quarter size thing that they put in left side of heart to keep you from having a stroke. It is elective surgery. He cannot take the blood thinners as this was part of the problem. His platelet counts were off the charts. Really bad. Medicare pays for it and once this is done he won't need blood thinners anymore. Just the asprin. 

 

Mt. Rider, praying that your mom will be able to get through this mess. She needs to be really careful as well as your dad. It will be hard for her to wear a mask. 

I would love to have a Trump 2020 mask and yes they are expensive.  I do have a couple of Trump 2020 signs in my yard. I have libs. living around me.

I'm all for masking up I guess. If it will help anything. At the very least in not going to fight it. Whatever. I'll look like I'm doing my part even though I'm not sure I am. 

 

I see people, mostly guys, get out of their car and tie a bandana on. Problem is, the bottom part is hanging loose. They look like the bad guys in a John Wayne western. Then they get back in the car and take it off. You know they are using the same 'mask' in the next store they go in. Probably using the same one for weeks at at time if the truth be known.

Yemen is nearly 1700 by now.  Was at 1 for so long.....if makes you wonder what happened? 

Was watching Papua New Guinea at the bottom for a while and then........  "merely" 32 but that's what happened to Yemen too.    :( 

 

Hawaii still 1.8 per 100,000 people.  We'll see what happens when the extra $600 for unemployment stops.  Most families have several jobs among those of an age to work.  Many have multi-generational homes too.  All that helps.....except if they all work in the tourist industry. 

 

MtRider  :pray:  ....for ALL of us!
