Larry Donargo (aka Lorenzo) - Butler NJ BOH
Alexander Woods in Lansing, Michigan serving on the Board of Health.
Have any Boards been engaged by their health officer or other for any input into the COVID responses?
How about the use of the broad powers of quarantine/isolation?
CCPHC has 5 members so we have met in one large meeting room with 10 or less people total
We were given drafts of the plan for reopening and materials sent to public for review and feedback
John Novak DmD, In Reno, NV, Chair, Washoe County District Board of Health,
The Health Administrator for Leon County Health advised me on where to get the nasalpharyangeal swab for PCR testing.

John Novak---we have 150 fte, . Full time professional staff -- 4 epidemilogists. We are having assistance of 50+ natl guard.
CCPHC has an area on our website dedicated to all things coved. All data is refreshed daily to see the number of cases, deaths, hospitalization, positive and negative tests. The public can view anytime
Here’s the dashboard for Clay County Public Health Center in Clay County, Missouri: http://mophep.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/e82ea9a196db450c83dabbc702575bc2
Ohio's legislature passed a bill to limit the authority of the Director of the Ohio Department of Health
In Missouri too; a senate bill just passed committee that makes boards of health advisory only to county commission or executive
CCPHC director has gotten negative feedback after the stay at home order. The Missouri house has a bill that will take that ability from the health department and give it to the county commission. This would not be good for our county relations
The Governor here in Ohio, Mike DeWine says he will Veto the restrictions proposed to Limit the Director of the ZHealth Department's Powers
We have unified command that includes the emergency managers and healthcare system directors. Some law enforcement has been included.
I’d like to learn examples of how BOH can contribute to the implementation of CDC recommendations being implemented or ignored in their local communities. For example, wearing of masks.
CCPHC works well with local emergency management entities and staff in all cities within our county. The DOH has a great relationship with them.
finishing the question….as it relates to restaurant employees and customers
Public health has not had this much visibility since H1N1. This is a moment for communication with the general public.
Once things taper down it is vital that local health departments don’t go back to being invisible and irrelevant.
I would like to help any HD that is struggling with this.

It's a tough topic (information sharing), because there are good points on all sides of issue.
we can certainly compile a summary of the chat as examples!
Every 2-3 weeks :)
