ICB/IHP Special Meeting

Testing
Potential shortage; quantity of testing likely to drop. Likely will be testing turnaround-triage-protocol, e.g. fast for sick, slow for asymptomatic. FINY must rely on behavioral precautions. 

Population Changes and Fall Flu Shots
IHP plans to poll population on who will extend their stay on Fishers Island. IHP asks that individuals who wish to be vaccinated make their request in advance.

Action Items
Need to distribute information about testing, new extended-residency census, and flu shot. Will post this information on the website; Chris plans to send a letter to the community.

Question-Takeaways

  Testing shortage expected across whole YNHH system

  No testing protocol for asymptomatic students. If sick, neg. test required for reentry.

  14-day isolation period likely necessary for visitors.
