My daughter told me that today is the second Friday the 13th in 2020. Feels appropriate.

Please clarify: If symptomatic, you are allowed to return to school after a negative test? It was my understanding you still had to quarantine for 14 days unless there was an alternate diagnosis, regardless of a negative test.
Susan Wolf Ditkoff (host)

I think there is also guidance that if you are a close contact, you are out for 14 days, AND you should get tested even though you still have to quarantine for 14 days no matter what.

Can you also discuss the accuracy of tests? Thank you.

Do you have numbers of how many cases we’ve had at PSB in the student body or staff in the last 1-2 weeks? How does that compare to the PSB thresholds (5 per week for students and 1 per week for staff)from a few slides back?
Anne Sheridan

To follow up on Sangeeta’s question, are staff who test positive reported in your data if they live outside of Brookline?

briefly, indoor dining in a restaurant is very different than indoor dining in a classroom- for many reasons. first, mixed cohorts, second, adults eating, third, less control over how much people are speaking etc. Japanese study came out recently associating w alcohol use & indoor dining as well.

I have to sign off. Take care everyone. Stay positive - we’re used to say “we’re all in this together” early in the pandemic. It’s still true.
