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'
@MariettaCitySch 'No student may ride the bus or enter the school building until the negative test is received for that specific day of quarantine. Likewise, no staff member will be allowed to enter the building until cleared to do such.'
@MariettaCitySch 'Each day’s negative test result will allow the student to attend school and participate in MCS athletics and afterschool activities on that specific day.'
@MariettaCitySch 'Each eligible student and staff member will receive details about the “test and stay” option once they are identified as a close contact. If they choose to participate, the close contact will be expected to register and select a preferred 30-minute window'
@MariettaCitySch 'The close contact will remain in their car while getting the rapid antigen test in a drive-thru format.'
@MariettaCitySch 'At-home rapid antigen tests will not qualify for "test and stay." The rapid antigen test must be administered through the MCS-MAKO Medical partnership.'
@MariettaCitySch 'Rivera said the new protocol is based on a model developed by the state of Massachusetts and endorsed by the state's department of public health and department of elementary and secondary education.'
@MariettaCitySch Not approved policy: '"While this approach is not officially endorsed in Georgia or Cobb County, it holds incredible promise to reduce the impact of lost instructional time for students and staff who are identified as school-based close contacts."'

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.'

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.'

'“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?
