Is daily testing needed @statesdj ? In CA we test close contacts every three days, a negative test on day 6 and no further testing required.

In Georgia: Student close contacts continue attending school w/no symptoms & test negative every day for 7 days.…
More states doing what CA doing...
" a number of school districts are turning to testing to keep more children in the classroom & avoid disrupting the work lives of their parents. The resource-intensive approach — sometimes known as “test to stay” or modified quarantine
@CDCgov says that it “does not have enough evidence” to support the test to stay/modified quarantine approach. Instead, it recommends that close contacts who have not been fully vaccinated quarantine for as long as 14 days.

Has your child just started, or just gone back to, school and you're desperate to hear about their day, but your questions are met with mumbles, grunts or silence?

Knowing when - and how - to ask new school starters about their day is a bit of an art form. Here are some of my best tips:

There has been a lot of talk of preparing new school starters over the last few weeks and lots of discussions about how to help them with big feelings as they settle in, but one huge missing part of the conversation is talking about how the *parents* feel. Image
Your child starting school is a huge deal for you too, but there’s far less advice to help you with your feelings. Image

Without ANY mitigation measures in school, can we at LEAST ask for a decent list of symptoms to help families identify #COVID infection, please?

We are worried.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Schools back for 3 weeks 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

#DeltaVariant is ripping through schools.

From 16th Aug - 2nd Sept inclusive: 💥26,836 cases age 0-19💥

💔~1% will be hospitalised (268)
💔~14% will be #LongCovidKids (3757)
💔~0.01% - 0.03% will die (2 - 8) 😢

#LongCovid #COVID #BackToSchool
Some schools in 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 have already been forced to close due to staff absence from #COVID19

Some classes are are half empty as children continue to pass #DeltaVariant between one another.

🛑On 16th Aug 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 recorded 477 new child cases
🛑On 2nd Sept 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 recorded 2596 new child cases
Local Authorities and @scotgov continue to reassure us that children are not transmitting #Covid19 in schools.

Apparently school pick up/drop off is the culprit.

Do we think that is true? Does #DeltaVariant have such high intelligence that it refuses to enter school buildings?

A #HCWforVaccines thread about the power of #gratitude & action. So, 2 days ago, my #HCWvsHunger co-captain & muse tweeted this out of the blue, tagging me. 👇 1/X
And I immediately texted her that she needed to give me a heads up because:

1) I can’t say no to this
2) I can’t say no to @acweyand

1) Can we ask for your help, please?

The @nhs says;
The main symptoms of COVID-19 are:

✅a high temperature
✅a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot, for more than an hour, or 3..…
2) or more coughing episodes in 24 hours

✅a loss or change to a sense of smell or taste – this means they cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal more coughing episodes in 24 hours

We have been asking the #NHS to update this list since
3) LCK started.

The @CDCgov has a more comprehensive list of symptoms.

As #kids are going #BackToSchool without mitigation measures we can expect to see child cases increase and families need to know how to spot infection and when to get a #PCR #test. (Keep reading)

1) We have been politely asking the @NHSuk to update its child #COVID19 symptom list since the end of 2020.

How can we expect families to recognise #COVID symptoms if they are not clearly listed?
We are deeply concerned.
2) @CDCgov list updated Dec 2020 is more comprehensive

Nasal congestion
New loss of taste or smell
Sore throat
SOB or difficulty breathing
Abdominal pain
Poor appetite / poor feeding…

With a new school year in the US, UK and across the Northern Hemisphere, I thought I'd share some crowd-sourced ideas and activities to connect with new students.

Here are 28 Activities and Ideas for Teachers to Get to Know Your New Students.

#backtoschool #megathread 🧵↓
#1 - Coat of Arms 
Students create a coat of arms or shield design that best represents them. Draw images or symbols that show:

🛡 Favourite subjects
🛡 Sports
🛡 Hobbies
🛡 Family
🛡 Places
🛡 Something they are good at

Use each child's shield in a class display.
#2 - New Class Bingo
A bingo card each with different statements about each other. Such as:

🟢 has a brother
🟢 walks to school
🟢 has two sisters
🟢 does martial arts

Give the group time to talk to each other and get a signature in each box. Full house wins a prize!

Schools in areas where coronavirus cases are under control can restart physical classes for Std 5-12th in rural areas & 8-12th in urban areas from Aug 17. Safe resumption of schools is being considered to ensure all students have equal access to education amidst the pandemic.
Municipal commissioners in Mumbai, Thane and Collectors of the 11 districts where restrictions still continue as per #BreakTheChain guidelines dated 2nd August, have been empowered to assess risk locally and decide on school reopening in their jurisdiction.  #BacktoSchool #COVID
Consent of parents is paramount to us, 81% parents said in @scertmaha survey they want schools to reopen so on July 15, 8-12th Std. classes were started in corona free villages. Parents will have final say on physical presence of their wards, attendance norms have been relaxed.

I’m not sure who to report this to, but YET AGAIN @halfon4harlowMP, the CHAIR of @CommonsEd is OPENLY LINKING HIMSELF to #UsForThemUK who are #antimask #antivax, anti - ANY #COVID mitigation in schools.

This is NOT OK!

@LaylaMoran @AppgCoronavirus @ChildrensComm @NAHTnews
#UsForThemUK are linked to #CRG & other @Conservatives MPs, #HARTGroup & others, who’re relentlessly spreading #CovidDisinformation in the name of putting “children first”.

NO ONE who cares about the health & wellbeing of children should be promoting them.
They’re part of a web of ANTI-MITIGATION “campaigners” who want schools to open in Sept WITHOUT ANY PROTECTIONS against #COVID19 in place for 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿pupils, staff & families.

Every HT needs to know that the pupils in THEIR CARE, almost all of whom are unvaccinated, are NOT SAFE!

A landmark court case is a case of legal importance, usually settling a signficant matter, and which decision is used and followed by the judiciary to decide cases dealing with the same issue. Here are 26 important Supreme Court Landmark Decisions over the years.1/28 #SCOTUS
Marbury v Madison: judicial review created; The act and the ensuing last-minute appointment of new judges by outgoingJohn Adams (the so-called “midnight judges”) were decried by the incoming president, Thomas Jefferson.

Plessy v Ferguson: “separate but equal”; In the pivotal case of Plessy v. Ferguson in 1896, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that racially separate facilities, if equal, did not violate the Constitution. 3/28 #BackToSchool #SCOTUS #DemsWork4USA

#BackToSchool The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) is the highest court of our land. The 9 justices decide the constitutionality of our laws and they hear select cases as a court of last appeal. Since Presidents pick nominees, elections & voting matter a great deal!
Article III of the Constitution establishes the federal judiciary. Article III, Section I states that "The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish."
Although the Constitution establishes the Supreme Court, it permits Congress to decide how to organize it. Congress first exercised this power in the Judiciary Act of 1789. This Act created a Supreme Court with six justices & established the lower federal court system.

#BackToSchool Conservatives like to insist that they revere the U.S. Constitution, though many have very little familiarity with it. There’s many more amendments than just their favorite, #2.
1/ Thread #Constitution #DemsWork4USA
We have 3 Branches of Government:
1. Legislative: makes laws; Article 1
2. Executive: enforces laws; Article 2
3. Judicial: interprets laws; Article 3

When the Constitution was written there were two entrenched factions. Federalists: supported the Constitution; wanted a strong central government,;  Madison, Hamilton, and Jay wrote Federalist Papers trying to get the public to support the Constitution.

#BackToSchool#Filibuster” is a funny word. It rolls off the tongue surprisingly well for a blocking tactic! Its history is longer than you’d think.
Here’s a look at the filibuster, how it works and the current political firestorm over it.…
Unlike the House, the Senate places few constraints on lawmakers’ right to speak.
Senators can easily use the chamber’s rules to hinder or block votes. Collectively these procedural delays are called #filibusters. 2/20
Senate records say the term began appearing in the mid-19th century. The word comes from a Dutch term for “freebooter” and the Spanish “filibusteros” that were used to describe pirates. 3/20 #Filibuster #Pirates

#BackToSchool With all the investigations & talk about Congressional Committees, it’s important to review some history & understand the impact CC’s have had in the past? Why is it so much harder to get accountability today? (Hint: Think elephant)… 1/13
Conducting investigations is one of the most public activities in which congressional committees engage. 2/13 #JusticeMatters #investigation #accountability #TheBigLie #demswork4usa
During the Progressive Era of the 1890s through 1920s, members could gain the attention of muckraking journalists by holding investigative
hearings to expose corruption in business and government. 3/13 #Corruption #accountability #Congress #TheBigLie
