We humbly ask the Hawai’i community to review and support this letter, calling for our Hawai’i leadership to adopt a COVID-19 elimination strategy, which is truly the solution for Hawai’i’s economic recovery.

HAWAII SCHOOL TEACHER AND STAFF ANONYMOUS SURVEY AND QUESTIONNAIRE

The American Academy of Pediatrics recently came out with an updated statement regarding the reopening of schools. The AAP states,“Local school leaders, public health experts, educators and parents must be at the center of decisions about how and when to reopen schools, taking into account the spread of COVID-19 in their communities and the capacities of school districts to adapt safety protocols to make in-person learning safe and feasible.”

This is an anonymous survey aimed at all private school teachers and staff, however we welcome the input of public school teachers and staff as well. We would like to get your perspective on school reopening plans and preparedness. If you work at multiple schools, please complete one survey per school.

FREE COVID-19 Contact Tracing Online Course offered by Johns Hopkins University

In this introductory course, students will learn about the science of SARS-CoV-2 , including the infectious period, the clinical presentation of COVID-19, and the evidence for how SARS-CoV-2 is transmitted from person-to-person and why contact tracing can be such an effective public health intervention. Students will learn about how contact tracing is done, including how to build rapport with cases, identify their contacts, and support both cases and their contacts to stop transmission in their communities. The course will also cover several important ethical considerations around contact tracing, isolation, and quarantine. Finally, the course will identify some of the most common barriers to contact tracing efforts — along with strategies to overcome them.
