Ottawa Co. Health Department Covid - 19 Update

December 4, 2020

This information from a meeting with the county health department yesterday afternoon.

-They are getting more specific with school district numbers and are now including all cases within our district's geographical boundaries.

- Our district's geographic area positivity rate is 12%

- There are 51 total cases

- 6 are school age children

- The indicators that dictate a counties' color have dropped to 3 out of 7. We won't turn yellow until the cases per 100,000 drop

- They are still not seeing spread in schools

- Household spread is still most common

- They are not making any recommendation to go remote

- They are still waiting for ODH to adopt the CDC's new quarantine guidelines

- They have not seen a huge spike in the number of cases off Thanksgiving weekend so far

We will continue to keep an eye on the numbers in our buildings and our county.

We are asking that parents and families double the effort to regularly screen children for symptoms prior to school. Please be especially careful if you and your families have been in large social gatherings unmasked during the times outside of school. These screenings are our first line of defense in keeping our students safe and our schools open.

Thanks.

CDC director says schools are among 'safest places' kids can be

Robert Redfield stated coronavirus infections "were not acquired in schools" at White House COVID-19 briefing

By Cortney Moore | Fox News



When it comes down to where children are safest during the coronavirus pandemic, CDC Director Robert Redfield says schools are the best place to be.

At a coronavirus task force briefing held at the White House on Thursday, Redfield said evidence shows that students are contracting the respiratory illness from family gatherings and local events rather than schools.

SCHOOLS AREN’T COVID-19 SUPER-SPREADERS, NEW DATA SUGGESTS

“The infections that we’ve identified in schools when they’ve been evaluated were not acquired in schools. They were actually acquired in the community and in the household,” he explained, citing task force coordinator Dr. Deborah L. Birx, who believes Americans are getting comfortable in removing protective face masks.

“The truth is, for kids K-12, one of the safest places they can be, from our perspective, is to remain in school, and it’s really important that following the data, making sure we don’t make emotional decisions about what to close and what not to close,” Redfield continued. “I’m here to say clearly the data strongly supports that K-12 schools — as well as institutes of higher learning — really are not where we’re having our challenges.”

UNICEF: 'NO CONSISTENT ASSOCIATION’ BETWEEN SCHOOL OPENINGS AND COVID-19 INFECTION RATES

In October, the CDC updated its report on COVID-19 Trends Among School-Aged Children — United States, which analyzed health data between March and September.

Research at the time showed out of 277,285 positive coronavirus cases in schools throughout the country, transmission among adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 was approximately twice that in children between the ages of 5 and 11.

Conversely, more recent data put out by the American Association of Pediatrics on Monday stated more than 1 million children have contracted COVID-19. However, this estimated number does not necessarily mean the coronavirus was transmitted from open schools and face-to-face learning.

According to Redfield, “It would be counterproductive from my point of view, from a public health point of view, just in containing the epidemic, if there was an emotional response, to say, ‘Let’s close the schools.’”
