Delegate McQuinn, Thank you for sharing your story.
Danny, we've talked about this over the past few weeks and now I'd like to add a layer to my standing questions. Part of the realization we're facing is that How are our City/State leaders bringing resources to the organizations that are already working in
forgive me that sent before I finished
Dr. Bohannon. So glad you are on this call. Hope you are well. Good information. Stay well, be safe and thank you for all that you do.
Good to see you again Dr. Bohannon, enjoyed your input.
From: Sheila Ashby - Good to see you again Dr. Bohannon, I enjoyed your input.
If you have questions, please submit via chat.
Part of the realization we're facing is that we none of our agencies nor community organizations have the capacity to meet the public health need to scale. How are City/State leaders bringing resources to help build the capacity of organizations that are already working within our communities throughout the city as well as what engagement efforts are under way to include community members in the process of working toward their own health and safety?
Dr. Bohannon, Your information was very helpful to me in understanding how this virus affect those with asthma.
Torey Edmonds, VCU Healthy Communities for Youth
Dr. Harris is muted. Please unmute.
Kevin can’t hear you
FROM DEL. MCQUINN: Thank you for the opportunity to share my story with COVID-19! And, thank you all for joining today’s conversation. Be well!
Dr. Harris, have you seen an increase in children experiencing anxiety or depression?
Dr. Lindstorm, It is great to hear all the things you are doing for people, especially the elderly, that are in need of your services. This information can be so helpful to so many.
Please continue to share your questions and comments for our panelists.
https://directorsblog.nih.gov/2020/05/07/study-finds-nearly-everyone-who-recovers-from-covid-19-makes-coronavirus-antibodies/ To the medical professionals on the panel, is the Commonwealth working across state and continental lines with this information to create a vaccine?
Can anyone shed light on how we are coordinating our efforts to "re-integrate" in the broader societal context with the surrounding counties and I would add surrounding states? Are there things working well in near municipalities that we might learn from here in RIC?
Greetings everyone, thank you Ms. Pennywell for the opportunity to join this conversation. Please accept my apologies if this question has been asked, since African Americans are more at risk in acquiring the COVID virus and residents in housing areas are not responding to the free COVID testing how can this type of social presentation be given to them? If it has been offered how was the participation? How can we (residents) assist in getting others that are at a higher risk of getting the virus join this type of conversation? The information given has been great, thank you for sharing.
For those of us returning to work that work inside spaces with large public and employee traffic are there any basic protocols that we should ALL be considering as we return to work in addition to masks, gloves, etc.? We will have gone from mandatory physical distancing to what will become an innate tendency to return to "normal" interaction. What directives are being given across public service agencies in order to arrive at the best ways to "re-integrate" without neglecting our own safety?
Thank you for that question, if time permits hopefully Dr. Avula can provide more information about the testing that is being done in public housing communities. The great news about this chat is that it will be recorded so this information can be shared and replayed
To get tested person will need to have a doctor's reference letter to get this done, or can be a walk-in?
What has the been the level go engagement of people coming to be tested?
no need for a doctor's reference letter
What is the process of testing? What does it look like? Can you walk us through how testing is done? What does it involved?
Are masks available at testing sites?
Should everybody get tested, even without symptoms?
we are giving out masks at our testing events
Thank you for the detailed information Dr. Jennings
Can you be tested without symptoms because they may be asymptomatic?
how about individuals who are asymptomatic?
Are there plans to expand taking testing to sites where large groups will reengage once the state is open? For instance, will you offer it at college campuses or move to large houses of worship?
Bon secours has freevideo visit for patient wth covid symptoms
i'll jump in on the question of asymptomatic testing after this question
In heavy populated areas (black communites) how is testing being encouraged and are there testing sites available in those areas?
Thank you to the members of the panel and all the information that you have given. I look forward to sitting in with you all again.
There are federal cell phone and internet programs (Safelink and Assurance) with avenues for internet access for people who live in low-income areas and receive social services benefits that could be used for telemedicine. Verizon has a plan for low-income residents as well.
Dr. Avula said that he was going to answer the asymptomatic question as well.
Thank you all for your great questions, we are cataloging them and working on getting them submitted to our panelists
We have asked the panelists whose schedules permit to stay on longer to answer questions. Thanks again for attending and all the engagement
