They will continue to receive health benefits, paid for by the city. We'll know by June 1 if any / how many of these may turn into layoffs or longer furloughs.
So, sorry to say again, but stay tuned.
I've asked for case data by race/ethnicity and I'm told that's forthcoming, but maybe not for tonight.
And, briefly, a demo of the Google/city services eligibility calculator I wrote about last year: boulderbeat.news/2019/11/17/goo…
Majority are still 20-29

We're considering what we might want to do based on what the governor does, Zayach says.
And we need better testing and surveillance.
When we have expanded testing, Zayach says, we can ID ppl who've been infected, who they've had contact with, and isolate them.
Zayach: "We do know there is more transmission in younger age groups than was expected when this first appeared."
Zayach: "We're talking about this going forward."
"The logistics of enforcing those orders is difficult but it's also important."
Zayach also says that antibody testing (to determine who may be immune) is still likely "months away." So we'll need to have a "push for masks."
Zayach: I'd want to see it at a state level.
Vissers: Idk about that. "We don't have that many grocery stores in town. If they called us," we could drop them off. Enough for what they need.

No, Zayach says.
Huntley: We'll do that.
Typically we've been running closer to 20, he says.
I think that means ppl who seemed like they had COVID but didn't...?
"We know that heart disease hasn't suddenly diminished in our community."
13 positives among BCH employees; no positive case in over a week. They've been traced to the community, not the hospital.
Zayach: I wasn't trying to draw a correlation to the number of cases.
Good news for anyone behind me on a bike.
And, he says, being side-by-side is safer than following behind someone.
If you think you have symptoms or if you want to determine whether or not to seek medical attention.
That's in addition to a $3.6M savings from the hiring freeze
562 or 95% of our seasonal & temporary staff
"With these moves, I think we've made good progress with making our (budget) gap smaller," Pattelli says.
Brautigam: We furloughed many, many employees and we are wanting to maintain their privacy. We're not going to release info about individuals who have been furloughed.
He expresses sympathies to the staff.
