    1. How Strict Should Schools Be About Masks? In Orange County, The Question's Part Of The Reopening Debate: LAist

      How Strict Should Schools Be About Masks? In Orange County, The Question's Part Of The Reopening Debate: LAist

      If Orange County public schools resume in-person instruction in the fall, the county's Department of Education has advised schools to 'encourage' students to wear masks and face coverings 'to the extent feasible.'

      But several members of Orange County's elected Board of Education have voiced skepticism about the scientific consensus that masks help prevent the spread of COVID-19 — and they think the department's guidelines don't strike the appropriate balance.

      Board members are now moving to publish their own set of guidelines that — according to this document — will advise OC schools that 'requiring children to wear masks during school is not only impossible to implement but not based on science and could be potentially harmful.' Another guideline: social distancing is 'unacceptable.'

      Most companies today provide insurance cover for their employees, but your corporate insurance plan might not be enough — certain diseases might require specialized coverage.

    4. Majority on O.C. School Board talk against masks, social distancing for next school year

      Majority on O.C. School Board talk against masks, social distancing for next school year
      -->

      When the Orange County Board of Education met this week to talk about how schools should reopen from the coronavirus shutdown, one of the central subjects of the debate was conspicuously missing: facemasks.

      In a spacious room with at least 40 people – in front of an online audience that over the course of the evening grew to more than 700 – only one board member, Beckie Gomez, as well as county employees and a handful of attendees, wore facial coverings.

      All the missing masks aligned with the agenda set by the board’s conservative majority at its forum Wednesday night in Costa Mesa.

      Though the Orange County Department of Education recently released its official suggestions for how school districts should re-open – emphasizing guidance from public health sources – the board’s conservative majority wanted to discuss other ideas, emphasizing less social distancing and more traditional in-class education.

      Poop as a predictor of coronavirus outbreaks?

      The vast brown rivers of sludge that gush into sewage treatment plants may help to identify new waves of coronavirus, scientists tell CNN.

      In Germany, which has been cited as an example of how to curtail the pandemic, a research trial is sampling wastewater from large urban areas in an attempt to find evidence of the virus.
      The goal is for almost all sewage plants to install these coronavirus early warning systems in order to track the spread of Covid-19.

      The Facts Behind 7 Common Face Mask Misconceptions

      Myth 1: You don't need to wear a face mask if you don't feel sick.
      This was the prevailing advice at the beginning of the pandemic, but not anymore. Experts have learned more about the coronavirus and how it spreads, and now the recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is that everyone — including people who feel perfectly healthy — should wear a face covering in public settings where it may be difficult to maintain at least 6 feet of space from other people. Think: grocery stores, pharmacies, retail shops, hair salons, crowded parks and more.

      Infectious Coronavirus Encounters Now Likely In LA | Pacific Palisades, CA Patch

      LOS ANGELES, CA — Coronavirus hospitalizations are up across Los Angeles along with new COVID-19 cases, a troubling trend as community transmission appears to be increasing.

      On Tuesday, health officials reported a total of 2,614 new cases across the county along with 34 more deaths and a total of 1,515 hospitalizations. Though the county has seen an uptick in hospitalizations, the recent averages of between 1,350 and 1,450 are still below the pandemic peaks of more than 1,900. The county is not in immediate danger of hospitals being overwhelmed with coronavirus cases, said the county's health services director, Dr. Christina Ghaly. However, if the spread of the virus continues to accelerate, it could threaten the availability of intensive-care unit beds, she warned.

      Black Melanoma Patients Face Treatment Delays

      Black Americans with melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, wait longer for surgery than white patients, a new study finds.

      "We already knew that black patients with melanoma have a worse prognosis and that longer time to treatment is associated with worse survival, but we didn't fully understand the relationship between race and time to treatment after controlling for various other factors," said study first author Raghav Tripathi, from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland.

    11. Key challenges for hospitals in the age of COVID-19

      Key challenges for hospitals in the age of COVID-19

      Prior to the arrival of COVID-19, a great many hospitals were facing daunting challenges —financial, regulatory and managerial. In April 2020, all three rating agencies lowered the financial outlook to negative, citing increased costs and a reduction in admissions and outpatient visits as creating new financial pressure on hospitals. Those came on top of existing concerns around low reimbursement from government payers and coverage shifts from employer-sponsored insurance to Medicare.

      What the rapidly spreading virus has wrought, beyond its epidemiological effects, is to severely exacerbate the aforementioned challenges. No health care organization – be it general-purpose, teaching, acute care, research or trauma care – has been exempt from the wrath of the coronavirus.

      How having cancer can put Covid-19 patients at higher risk of dying

      Researchers are learning more about the risks cancer patients face if they become sick with Covid-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus that has swept through the world.

      Patients whose cancer was getting worse or spreading were more than five times more likely to die in the space of a month if they caught Covid-19, researchers said this week during the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.
      Even if the patients' cancer wasn't spreading, coronavirus infection nearly doubled the risk of dying, the researchers found.

      Coronavirus cases in Orange County continue to surge with 229 new cases reported Thursday, bringing the countywide total to 3,968.

However, although testing is being ramped up, the increase in cases was not attributed to the uptick in tests conducted, he said.

      Doctors are just starting to learn what recovery from COVID looks like and whether it will cause long-term damage to its survivors – both physically and mentally.

      The symptoms came suddenly but took a long time to leave.

      Akhink Omer, 31, still remembers the exact date: March 9. One day she felt perfectly fine, and the next she was hit with feverdiarrheafatiguecoughing fits, severe body aches and “the worst headache of my life for the first few days.”
