Good: 'The Kennesaw State University faculty senate has voted overwhelmingly in support of vaccine mandates at University System of Georgia institutions, as well as mask mandates at institutions in areas of elevated community transmission of COVID-19.' mdjonline.com/news/ksu-facul…
'The KSU faculty senate's votes do not change KSU or USG policy but essentially serve as an official opinion of KSU faculty and urge the university system to change its COVID-19 policies. KSU faculty senate members are elected by their department faculty'
'The USG's current policies "strongly encourage" but do not require mask wearing and vaccination at USG institutions.'
'The University of North Georgia similarly passed by a wide margin late last month a resolution calling on USG Acting Chancellor Teresa MacCartney and the president of UNG to issue executive orders mandating adherence to CDC mask guidelines.'
'Professors at other Georgia universities have made COVID-related headlines as the school year has begun, including an 88-year-old University of Georgia professor who resigned in the middle of a class last month after a student refused to wear their mask correctly'
'Meanwhile, some professors have reportedly bucked the USG's lack of mask mandates, requiring masks in their individual classes.'
BS: 'In an emailed statement to the MDJ on Monday, USG spokesman Aaron Diamant said the system's leaders "remain committed to keeping our campus communities healthy and safe."'
'Diamant pointed to a "$200 well-being credit" for all employees who get vaccinated and said the USG continues to work closely with the Georgia Department of Public Health.'
'Diamant also said the university system's 26 colleges and universities have administered thousands of vaccine doses, "and continue to help faculty, staff and students get vaccinated either on campus or with a local provider."'
'"While we urge vaccination for everyone, we recognize it is an individual decision to receive one and not required to be on our campuses," he said.'
'Pincock said KSU's faculty resolutions support a letter from the USG Regents Advisory Council for Biological Sciences, which called for the USG to apply a portion of its own policy on vaccinations to COVID-19 and to adhere to guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control'

And, now, the horrifying comments by @CobbSchools board chair Scamihorn.
@CobbSchools 'Nicole, a pediatric nurse, said she spoke on the phone with him after the first week of school. She asked him what CCSD was doing to protect children under 12 who can’t be vaccinated. She said he told her that children don’t get it.'

More re:@MariettaCitySch new test-and-stay which is similar to quarantine-at-school. They have mask mandate: 'mdjonline.com/news/marietta-…
@MariettaCitySch 'Only school-based close contacts are eligible for "test and stay." Students and staff identified as close contacts of a COVID-positive person outside schools are not eligible for "test and stay."'
@MariettaCitySch 'The eligible student or staff member will be required to have an MCS-administered rapid antigen test on each school day of their 7-day quarantine. Upon receipt of a negative test result, the school will be immediately notified the student/staff member can attend school'

'“Because we have the most (COVID cases) we’ve had right now.”' ajc.com/sports/georgia…
'Smart’s impromptu report came after he was asked to update the condition of Ron Courson. Courson, the Bulldogs’ hall of fame trainer and executive associate athletic director for sports medicine, tested positive for COVID-19 Wednesday.'
'In addition to Courson, Smart said Georgia has “three or four guys with COVID,” meaning players, and that does not include “a couple of staff members.”'

Vaccine uptake might be higher if people had to actually pay for this experimental treatment. Of course, we taxpayers really are paying ajc.com/news/atlanta-n…
It's great, but it's no replacement for vaccination. /And/ things like drive-through clinics and pop-ups in libraries, rather than actual medical facilities, seem unsafe.
And results are mixed: 'He recently referred a middle-aged woman who was unvaccinated. But, despite the treatment, she ended up hospitalize'

Correct link for @AJC community conversation with school leaders re:#COVID19:
@ajc, chat is disabled for the community conversation.
@ajc @ajc, since chat is disabled, here is what I want to know from the @CobbSchools super Ragsdale---The evidence is in. Masks are reducing transmission. Just compare 14-day per 100K for 5-17 for Gwinnett (415) and Cobb (918). Will you mandate masks, even temporarily? If not, why?
