EARLEY HAS ESTABLISHED A PEDIATRIC SUBCOMMITTEE AS PART OF OUR HOSPITAL SURGE, AND WE HAVE A MEETING TOMORROW SO THAT WILL BE SOMETHING WE CAN TALK ABOUT: ALSO, THERE WAS SOME COMMENTS ABOUT THE CHANGES IN OUR PEDIATRIC REPORTS THAT THE FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH HAS DONE WE’VE BEEN WORKING WITH THE COUNTY STAFF AND WE’RE LOOKING TO CREATE A LOCAL REPORT SO WE CAN TRACK PEDIATRIC CASES IN SEPARATE ABLING GROUPS AS — AGE GROUPS AS DR. CURRAN HAD SORT OF PRESENTED ABOUT A MONTH OR SO BACK JUST THE LATEST DATA, THE NUMBERS ARE TRENDING DOWN, SIMILAR TO THE OTHER PART OF THE REST OF THE COMMUNITY 689 WE’RE SEEING 28 CASE AS DAY ON A SEVEN-DAY AVERAGE TO 18 ABOUT HALF OF THOSE ARE IN OUR MIDDLE SCHOOL TO HIGH SCHOOL, 11 TO 18, AND THE REST ARE SPLIT PRETTY EQUALLY BETWEEN THE 0 TO 4 AND 5 TO 10 LOOKING AT A RATE PER 100,000, THEY ARE A LITTLE LESS THAN THE REST OF THE COMMUNITY SO AGAIN, WE ARE GOING TO BE READY TO TRACK THAT AS WE MOVE FORWARD SO LET ME BEGIN I’LL BE REVIEWING THE EPIDATA I’LL GOING TO DO A REALLY HIGHER LEVEL THAN I’VE DONE IN THE PAST DETAILED MR. WAGNER’S GOING TO WALK THROUGH I THINK THE DASHBOARD THAT SPEAKS FOR ITSELF SO MR. WAGNER, WOULD YOU PUT UP MY FIRST SLIDE, PLEASE? OKAY

AS OF TODAY, WE HAVE JUST OVER 35,000 WE’VE ADDED 208 WERE REPORTED TODAY THE HOSPITALS HAVE SEEN A NOTICEABLE DECREASE IN ADMISSIONS, AND THE NUMBER OF PATIENTS WITH COVID THAT ARE IN THEIR HOSPITAL ARGING ABOUT 300 A DAY VERSUS WE HAD UP TO 600 SEVERAL WEEKS AGO UNIVERSITY VILLAGE SENSESES HAALSO DECREASED BUT WE ARE — CENSUS HAS ALSO DECREASED BUT WE ARE RECORDING MORE DEATHS THAT’S NOT SURPRISING GIVING IT’S A LAGGING INDICATOR WE’RE REPORTING 513 AGAIN, HOPEFULLY WE EXPECT THIS TO DECREASE AS OUR HOSPITALIZATIONS HAVE ECREASED SUBSEQUENTLY LOOKING AT THIS SLIDE, THIS IS THE, I’M LOOKING AT THE COMMUNITY-BASED TRANSMISSION LEVEL OF TRANSMISSION AS WE STEP DOWN WE’VE NO LONGER IN THE HIGHEST LEVEL OO WEEK AGO WE WERE JUST ABOVE THAT 175 WE’RE IN THE RED WHICH WAS SUBSTANTIAL AND UNCONTROLLED TRANSMISSION SO WE’RE NOW AROUND THE MIDDLE OF THE ORANGE AREA SUBSTANTIAL TRANSMISSION CONTROLLED LOOKING AT N A DAILY NUMBER OF ABOUT 16 PER 100,000 PER DAY, SO OUR GOAL IS TO GET TO THE YELLOW NEXT WHICH IS WHERE WE’LL BE AT MODEST TRANSMISSION THAT’S UNDER 10 CASES PER DAY PER 100,000, AND THEN ULTIMATELY, GET DOWN TO THE GREEN WHERE WE CAN HAVE MINIMAL AND SUPPRESSED TRANSMISSION THE POSITIVITY RATE IS ALSO CONTINUING TO DECREASE AS YOU’LL SEE WE’RE DOWN ON A SEVEN-DAY AVERAGE AROUND 7% AS MR. DUDLEY AND HAS BEEN NOTED, THE DECREASE IN TESTING IS CONCERNING AND IF WE KEEP SEEING THIS GOING DOWN, I — OUR RELIABILITY OF ABOUT, SO I AM HOPEFUL, A LITTLE EXCITED THAT I’VE SEEN DEVELOPMENT OF NEW TESTING TECHNIQUES I THINK THE MOST NOTICEABLE WAS THE SALIVA COLLECTION IT WOULD REALLY HELP IN SOME OF THE SITUATIONS THAT WE WOULD WANT TO DEAL WITH IN THE FUTURE CURRENTLY INVOLVES A LAB STILL RUNNING, BUT I HOPE TO SEE THOSE EVOLVE SO NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE JUST WANTED TO AGAIN, GIVE US A PERCEPTION OF WHERE WE WERE AND WHERE WE ARE SO IF YOU LOOK AT THE FAR LEFT IN EARLY JUNE, JUST BEFORE THE PHASE 2 OPENING, WE WERE PRETTY LOW, BUT IF YOU LOOK CLOSER, WE STARTED IF YOU LOOK TO SEE THAT UPTREND START, AND WE AROUND MIDDLE OF JUNE, THE UPSLOPE WAS RELATIVELY STEEP THEN WE HAD A SUSTAINED PEAK FOR REALLY ABOUT TWO WEEKS FOR THE FIRST TWO WEEKS OF JULY WE’RE NOW SEEING THIS GRADUALLY FALLING AGAIN REMINE WE’RE STILL IN A SIGNIFICANT DEGREE OF COMMUNITY-BASED TRANSMISSION NEXT SLIDE AND I KEEP TRYING TO, I WANT TO KEEP AN EYE ON THE REGION WE’RE ALL PART OF THIS THIS VIRUS — NO BOUNDARIES AND SO IF YOU LOOK AT THIS OVERALL, WE’RE PRETTY MUCH ON IN THE SAME RANGE PASCO AND PINELLAS ARE LEADING THE WAY BUT CLEARLY WE NEED TO KEEP DOING WHAT WE’RE DOING OUR OAL IS TO ULTIMATELY GET DOWN TO THE GREEN THAT’S NOT A, WON’T BE A POINT IN TIME IT’S GOING TO BE, TAKE IS SUSTAINED EFFORTS SO I THINK THERE ARE GOOD TRENDS, BUT WE STILL HAVE A WAYS TO GO >> LES MILLER, JR.: DR. HOLT, COULD YOU GO BACK TO THE LAST SLIDE? THIS IS THE SEVEN-DAY POSITIVITY RATE I KEEP HEARING THAT THE ULTIMATE FACTOR THAT WE LOOK AT IS THE 14-DAY POSITIVITY RATE AM I RIGHT? >> WELL, THE 14-DAY IS HOSEN BECAUSE IT REFLECTS STABILITY OVER TIME WHEN YOU’RE IN A RAPID CHANGE, THE BEST WAY TO PREDICT WHERE YOU’RE GOING IS THE SEVEN-DAY I’VE USED THE SEVEN-DAY POSITIVITY RATE HERE JUST

BECAUSE I CHOSE THE SEVEN-DAY PER 100,000 JUST TO DISPLAY ULTIMATELY THE 14-DAY DOES, DOES INDICATE FOR ALL OF THESE INDICATORS A, THE, THE SUSTAINABLE OR THE, THE, THAT WE ARE IN A STEADY STATE IF YOU WILL I’LL STOP HERE >> LES MILLER, JR.: SO WHERE ARE WE FOR THE 14? DO YOU HAVE ANOTHER SLIDE HAT SHOWS THE 14-DAY POSITIVITY RATE? >> YEAH, THAT’S GOING TO BE PART OF OUR DASHBOARD IT WILL SPEAK FOR ITSELF AND THAT’S — MR. WAGNER, WE HAVE BOTH OF THOSE >> LES MILLER, JR.: OKAY, THANK YOU >> I’LL GO AHEAD KEVIN WAGNER, BUSINESS ANALYST, HEALTH CARE SERVICES DEPARTMENT MEMBERS OF THE BOCC, I’LL PRESENT THE DASHBOARD THAT IS PUBLICLY AVAILABLE FOR THE CITIZENS AS DISCUSSED BEFORE, ITEMS IN GREEN SHOW A TREND OR A POSITIVE NATURE THAT WE’RE HOPING FOR ITEMS IN THAT SALMON OR RED COLOR ARE AREAS OF CONCERN ON THE PUBLIC DASHBOARD, THE LANDING PAGE AS INDICATED EARLIER BY DR. HOLT, WE ARE ABOVE 35,061 CASES CONFIRMED THROUGH TODAY’S UPDATE ON THE TOP ROW, A LITTLE OVER 500 INDIVIDUALS HAVE BEEN, ARE FATALITIES AND ABOUT 1.47% OF THE CASES HAVE RESULTED IN FATALITY AND NEARLY 24,000 HAVE RECOVERED THE INFORMATION THAT WE HEARD EARLIER TODAY WITH REGARD TO HE SEVEN, ROW 2, REGARD TO THE SEVEN AND 14-DAY CHANGE OF DAILY CASES, WE’RE LOOKING AT A ROUGHLY 235 ON A SEVEN-DAY AVERAGE OR SEVEN-DAY COUNTY AND 250 ON A 14-DAY COUNT SO THAT SPREAD OF CASES AS WE SHOW ARE NOW IN — GOING DOWNWARD THE ITEM IN SALMON COLOR IS HE ITEM OF CONCERN AGAIN THE TESTING ON A TWO-WEEK AVERAGE OF TESTING, WE’RE AROUND 25,000 THE PREVIOUS WEEK OOKING AT A TWO-WEEK AVERAGE, WE WERE AROUND 29,000 SO THAT IS A CONCERN TO YOUR QUESTION, COMMISSIONER MILLER, THE 14-DAY POSITIVE RATE IS AROUND 8.2% WE UPDATE THIS ONLY ONCE ONE SO SUNDAYS AFTER A COMPLETE WEEK OF TESTING HAS OCCURRED SO OUR NEXT SUNDAY AFTERNOON, THIS WILL BE UPDATED AGAIN BUT THE TREND WHEN WE LOOK AT SOME OF THE DALIES ARE GOING DOWNWARD AS WELL ROW THREE IS THE HOSPITALIZATION DATA AGAIN, THIS IS A SUBSET OF ALL THE AHCA DATA WHAT’S PRESENTED IS THE TGH DATA EXCHANGE WHICH ENCOMPASSES THE MOST OF THE OSPITALS THAT REPORT AND THERE IS A BIT OF A LAG WE HAVE ELECTED TO USE THIS BECAUSE IT SHOWS THE TRENDING COMPONENT OVER TIME SO THAT PROVIDES A GREAT VALUE FROM AN INFORMATION STANDPOINT SO AGAIN, THE TRENDING IN THE HOSPITALIZATION DATA SPEAKS FOR ITSELF IT’S TRENDING IN THE DOWNWARD DIRECTION BUT WE ARE MONITORING IT CONTINUOUSLY WITH REGARD TO THE CASES, I’LL SPEAK TO THE MAIN CHART AT THE BOTTOM I BELIEVE IT WAS ASKED TO INCLUDE THE OPENING SIGNIFICANT OPENING DATES WITHIN THE COMMUNITY AND THE MASK ORDER THE MASK ORDER WAS ON JUNE 22nd HIGHLIGHTED IN ORANGE AND THEN WE SEE THE NUMBER OF CASES PER DAY TRENDING DOWNWARD BEGINNING LATE JULY AND BEGINNING OF AUGUST TO WHERE WE ARE NOW IN HAT 250 TO 235 A DAY BASED UPON THE SEVEN OR ROLLING DAY AVERAGE SO AGAIN, THAT TREND IS FLATTENING AS DR. HOLT INDICATED AS WELL OPERATIONS THE TESTING DATA, I’LL SPEAK ON THE FIRST ROW RIGHT-HAND SIDE AGAIN, THE 14-DAY AVERAGE OF TESTS ON A WEEK IS AROUND 25,000 BUT REALLY WHEN WE LOOK AT THE WEEK OF THAT LAST WEEK THAT STARTED THAT WAS COMPLETED, IT WAS ONLY A ITTLE UNDER 21,000 TESTS PREVIOUS WEEK WITH NEARLY 30,000, THE AVERAGE IS 25,000 SO AGAIN, WHEN WE LOOK AT THAT ONE WEEK, AS INDICATED BY MR. DUDLEY AND DR. HOLT, THE TESTING’S GONE DOWN SO I ONLY EED 21,000 IN A WEEK COMPLETED AND THESE ARE REPORTED TESTS SO AGAIN, IT’S NOT REPORTED IT’S NOT GOING TO BE COUNTED IN THIS DATA SET BUT THIS IS REPORTED TESTS AT THAT TIME AGAIN IS HOSPITALIZATION RATE OVERVIEW FIRST ROW, THIRD BOX, GAIN, THE LARGEST KNOWN HOSPITALIZATIONS RELATED TO COVID ARE THE 50-PLUS AGE GROUP

YOU CAN SEE 50, 60, 70 AND SUCH GOING FORWARD WITH REGARD TO THE HOSPITALIZATIONS ON THE SECOND ROW, AGAIN THE TREND HAS GONE DOWN THIS IS THE TGH SUBSET DATA SO THERE IS SOME, A LAG, BUT AGAIN, FROM A TRENDING STANDPOINT, WE ARE SEEING A TREND DOWNWARD IN THE HOSPITAL CENSUS OF INDIVIDUALS IN THE ICU WITH COVID AND THE INDIVIDUALS IN, IN IMPATIENT WITH COVID AS WELL SO THAT’S TRENDING DOWN AND THE INDIVIDUALS ON THE DAILY THAT SUBSET IS TRENDING DOWNWARD AND I’LL STOP THERE THANK YOU >> LES MILLER, JR.: OKAY DR. HOLT, ANYTHING FURTHER, SIR? >> NO, SIR, WE WOULD BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS >> LES MILLER, JR.: COMMISSIONER OVERMAN, YOU’RE RECOGNIZED >> KIMBERLY OVERMAN: THANK YOU AND THANK YOU BOTH FOR YOUR REPORT AND I REALLY TRULY APPRECIATE IT OUR DASHBOARD IS REALLY HELPFUL AND THE 14-DAY AND 7-DAY NUMBERS LOOK SO MUCH BETTER BECAUSE — I’M A LITTLE CONCERNED ABOUT THE TESTING NUMBERS FALLING, AND CURIOUS IF THERE HAS BEEN ANY INDICATION WHY THAT HAS OCCURRED OTHER THAN PEOPLE ARE JUST NOT FEELING BAD BUT MY BIGGER ISSUE HAS TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT WE’VE GOT ABOUT 11 OR 12% POSITIVITY RATE IN HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY WHEN IT COMES TO PEDIATRICS, AND WHILE OUR AVERAGE NUMBER FOR GENERAL POPULATION IS IN THE 8% RANGE IN THE FUTURE WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO EE IS ACTUALLY THE NUMBERS THAT ARE BEING REPORTED BUT BY THE STATE IS A, YOU KNOW BELOW THE AGE OF 18 PEDIATRIC NUMBER, AND THEY’RE SHOWING, BASICALLY THE NUMBER OF CHILDREN IN HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY THAT IN THE LAST 14 DAYS HAVE TESTED POSITIVE IS IN THE 361 RANGE AND ABOUT 11.6% YESTERDAY IT WAS 12% SO THAT’S A IT FOR EA HIGH NUMBER BUT IT’S A VERY — IT’S A PRETTY HIGH NUMBER BUT A SMALL NUMBER GIVEN OUR POPULATION ON TESTING CHILDREN SO I’M CURIOUS, IF WE’RE SEEING GREAT NUMBERS ON THE GENERAL AGE OVERALL POPULATION BUT WE’RE SEEING A RELATIVELY HIGH NUMBER IN TERMS OF OUR PERCENTAGE POSITIVE ON CHILDREN TESTED POSITIVE, WHAT IS THE NUMBER, DR. HOLT, THAT WOULD, WOULD GIVE YOU IF YOU HAVE PERMISSION TO DO SO, GIVE YOU THE ABILITY TO INDICATE THAT IT WOULD BE WISE TO MAKE A RECOMMENDATION REGARDING THE NUMBER OF THE CHILDREN THAT GATHER TOGETHER FOR EXAMPLE IN BRICK AND MORTAR? AS THE SCHOOL BOARD YOU INDICATED THAT YOU DIDN’T HAVE A POSITION WHEN IT CAME TO A RECOMMENDATION ON OPENING OR REOPENING AS A MATTER OF FACT, IT WAS YOU REPRESENT THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT AND YOU PROVIDE TECHNICAL ADVICE ASSISTANCE AND ADVICE BUT YOU DIDN’T HAVE A POSITION AT WHAT NUMBER WILL YOU HAVE A POSITION BECAUSE WE AT THE COUNTY CLEARLY HAVE TO MOTIVATE AND BE PREPARED FOR THE INCREASE IN EXPOSURE THAT OCCURS IN THE WHEN CHILDREN ARE UNABLE TO SOCIAL DISTANCE AT SCHOOL SO IN ORDER FOR US TO BE READY TO DEAL WITH THE SURGE THAT OCCURS, EVEN THOUGH IT’S NOT OUR CALL WHETHER THE SCHOOL OPENS OR NOT, IT IS OUR CALL TO BE PREPARED, SO I NEED TO KNOW WHETHER YOU WILL BE ABLE TO GIVE US A RECOMMENDATION ON HOW WE BE BEST PREPARED TO DEAL WITH THE SURGE SHOULD IT OCCUR AND WHEN WOULD YOU MAKE THE RECOMMENDATION TO THE SCHOOL BOARD THAT THEY CONSIDER NOT DOING BRICK ND MORTAR AT WHAT NUMBER? AT WHAT DATA METRIC FOR PEDIATRIC EXPOSURES OR POSITIVITY NUMBER WOULD YOU MAKE A RECOMMENDATION? >> YES, MA’AM I KNOW THIS HAS BEEN A HALLENGE FOR EVERYBODY TO APPRECIATE AND UNDERSTAND THE ROLE THAT THE FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH HAS TAKEN AS FAR AS IN OUR PARTNERSHIP WITHIN THE EMERGENCY ORDER THE GUIDANCE OF >> LES MILLER, JR.: LLTING THE — IMPLEMENTING THE CDC AND EFFECTIVE A CONTACT TRACING PROGRAM SO THE FIRST STEP WE’RE INVOLVED VERY CLOSELY WITH IS UPON REOPENING WE DO EXPECT CASES, WE EXPECT CLOSURES, AT LEAST OF CLASSROOMS, AND IS THEN

POTENTIALLY SCHOOLS BASED ON THE OUTCOMES OF OUR INVESTIGATION AS IT RELATES TO WHEN TO CLOSE SCHOOLS, INDIVIDUALLY, MY OPINION AND THIS ISN’T OFFICIAL FROM THE FLORIDA DEPARTMENT, IS WE REALLY SHOULDN’T BE CLOSING SCHOOLS JUST COUNTY BY COUNTY THERE HAS TO BE CRITERIA ON AT LEAST A REGIONAL BASIS AS WAS DISCUSSED AT THE SCHOOL BOARD, THERE ARE MANY GUIDELINES, RECOMMENDATIONS, WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION, CDC, THE HARVARD GLOBAL ALL OF THEM HAVE SOME RANGE OR VARIABILITY THAT INVOLVE POSITIVITY RATE OF THE COMMUNITY OF AROUND THAT 5%, AND THE CASE RATE PER 100,000 ALSO AROUND THAT FIVE NUMBER I THINK WOULD BE ACCEPTABLE THE DECISION ABOUT WHAT IS THE TRIGGER AS I THINK WAS ALSO TALKED ABOUT AT THE SCHOOL BOARD MEETING, IT COMES DOWN TO THE, WHAT LEVEL OF ACCEPTABLE RISK YOU HAVE, SO MY ROLE IS TO HELP THE DECIDERS MAKE AN INFORMED DECISION AND PARTICULARLY AS IT RELATES TO SCHOOL SYSTEMS, NOT SCHOOLS, BUT EVEN WITH SCHOOLS, I CAN RECOMMEND IT’S UP TO THEM TO DECIDE IF THEY WILL ACCEPT THAT ON THOSE CONDITIONS I DONOT HAVE AN EXACT NUMBER YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT WHAT IS GOING ON NOT ONLY IN THIS COUNTY, BUT THE REGION AND TO MAKE PARTICULARY A DECISION REGARDING A SYSTEM SO I KNOW A WORDY ANSWER TO A COMPLICATED AND SOME PEOPLE APPEAR TO BE THINK IT’S A SIMPLE QUESTION BUT IT’S REALLY NOT SO I’LL STOP THERE, MA’AM >> KIMBERLY OVERMAN: I APPRECIATE IT WHAT I WOULD LIKE YOU TO REPORT TO US BY THE NEXT MEETING IS WHAT METRICS AND NUMBERS WILL YOU UTILIZE TO MAKE A RECOMMENDATION? >> LES MILLER, JR.: WHOA, WHOA, WHOA, WHOA, WHOA, WHOA YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE HIM MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS US AND UTILIZE THEM OR SCHOOLS >> KIMBERLY OVERMAN: NO, I’M ASKING WHAT, WHAT METRICS AND NUMBERS WILL HE USE FOR MAKING A RECOMMENDATION SO WE CAN MONITOR THOSE NUMBERS AND BE PREPARED THERE POSSIBLE — FOR POSSIBLE CHANGES IN EMPLOYMENT, ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, HOSPITALIZATIONS, ANY OF THEZ THINGS WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL IF WE HAD OSE NUMBERS, AND IT DOESN’T SOUND LIKE WE HAVE THEM WE HAVE A LOT OF NUMBERS, BUT WE DON’T HAVE A SPECIFIC LIST OF METRICS THAT HE IS DEFINING OR INDICATING HE IS GOING TO USE, TO MAKE A RECOMMENDATION TO THE SCHOOL TO ADDRESS THE SPREAD THAT IS OCCURRING IN THE SCHOOLS >> LES MILLER, JR.: COMMISSIONER OVERMAN, I DON’T THINK WE AS A BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS CAN ASK HIM TO DO THAT FOR, TO DICTATE WHAT HE WOULD GIVE TO US TO RECOMMEND TO SCHOOLS WAIT A MINUTE WAIT A MINUTE AS I SAID BEFORE, I UNDERSTAND, HEY, I UNDERSTAND YOUR CONCERN I GOT THE SAME CONCERN I TRULY, TRULY, TRULY UNDERSTAND YOUR CONCERN AND, AND I’VE LOOKED AT THIS EVERY DAY AND TRY TO FIGURE OUT WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE THEY DOING, A POSITIVITY RATE OF 8.24% IN HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, WE SHOULD BE TALKING ABOUT 5%, AND YOU JUST SAID A PEDIATRIC POSITIVITY RATE OF 12%, WHY ARE WE DOING THIS? BUT FOR THIS BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS TO BE ASKING DR. HOLT TO GIVE TO S WHAT HIS SUGGESTION SHOULD BE OF OPENING THE SCHOOLS, THAT’S NOT OUR CALL THAT IS NOT OUR CALL I’M GOING TO ASK MS., MS., MS. BECK TO PLEASE EXPLAIN AND TELL US IN STATUTE WHAT SEPARATES OUR RESPONSIBILITY FROM THE SCHOOL BOARD’S RESPONSIBILITY BECAUSE WE’RE — SOUNDS LIKE WE’RE GETTING READY TO CROSS THE LINE ND GET OURSELVES IN TROUBLE HERE I UNDERSTAND YOUR CONCERN, I REALLY DO, BUT I THINK WE’RE ABOUT TO GO A LITTLE BIT TOO FAR A LITTLE BIT TOO FAR FOR THIS BOARD SEPARATION OF POWERS BETWEEN US AND THE SCHOOL BOARD WE ARE NOT LIKE OTHER SCHOOL DISTRICTS, THAT WE WILL CONTROL THAT WE DON’T DO THAT IN THIS COUNTY; IN THIS STATE SO YOU SOUND LIKE YOU’RE GETTING READY TO CROSS A LINE THAT COULD

GET US ALL IN A LITTLE BIT OF TROUBLE HERE MS. WISE, WOULD YOU EXPLAIN WHERE WE ARE STATUTORILY THAT SEPARATES US FROM THE SCHOOL BOARD? >> YES, I WOULD BE HAPPY TO CHRISTINE BECK, COUNTY ATTORNEY OTHER THAN THE STATUTES AND OTHER, THERE ARE NUMEROUS STATUTES THAT SET OUT THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICTS, BUT I THINK THE MOST IMPORTANT ITEM IS THE FLORIDA CONSTITUTION ITSELF AND IN THE FLORIDA CONSTITUTION, ARTICLE 9, SECTION 4, IT SIMPLY STATES THAT THE SCHOOL BOARD SHOULD OPERATE SCHOOL AND SUPERVISE ALL FREE PUBLIC SCHOOLS WITHIN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT, AND IT, IT GOES ON BUT IT DOES PROVIDE A PRETTY CLEAR GUIDE LIST OF WHERE THOSE LINES ARE WHAT I MIGHT ADD THAT MIGHT BE HELPFUL IS I DO UNDERSTAND THAT THE SCHOOL BOARD IS MEETING AGAIN SOON AND PERHAPS IF SHE WANTED TO SEE THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH WOULD TAKE IT UP TO THE SCHOOL BOARD, THAT MIGHT BE APPROPRIATE, BUT WE CERTAINLY ARE TRYING TO BE VERY MINDFUL OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY SEPARATIONS AND THE SEPARATE JURISDICTIONS AND THE SEPARATE RESPONSIBILITIES, AND I HOPE I ANSWERED YOUR QUESTION, CHAIRMAN MILLER, BUT IF THERE’S SOMETHING I HAVE OVERLOOKED, PLEASE LET ME KNOW >> LES MILLER, JR.: NO, YOU DID ANSWER THE QUESTION AND THAT’S THE POINT I WAS TRYING TO GET ACROSS THERE’S A SEPARATION OF POWERS BETWEEN THE TWO, AND COMMISSIONER OVERMAN I KNOW WHERE YOU’RE ABOUT TO GO KIND OF STEPS OVER THOSE SEPARATION OF POWERS, WHAT YOU WANT HIM TO BRING BACK TO US AND THAT’S GETTING A LITTLE BIT OVER THE LINE THE INK IS STARTING TO SPREAD OUT ND WE SHOULDN’T BE GOING THERE >> KIMBERLY OVERMAN: OKAY OKAY CAN I — >> LES MILLER, JR.: BELIEVE ME, I UNDERSTAND I TRULY BELIEVE IF I WAS A JUDGE, I WOULD PROBABLY RULING IN FAVOR OF SOME OTHER PEOPLE THAT ARE SUING THE COMMISSION OF EDUCATION AND THE DECISION THEY MADE AN APPOINTED COMMISSIONER TELLING AN ELECTED BAHY WHAT TO DO DELVE INTO SCHOOL BOARD ISSUE AND WE SHOULDN’T BE DOING THAT I JUST FEEL RIGHT NOW WHAT YOU’RE ABOUT TO DO THE INK WAS GETTING READY TO SPILL OVER THE LINE AND I’M ASKING YOU TO PLEASE NOT DO THAT >> KIMBERLY OVERMAN: LET ME REVERT BACK TO THE DATA THAT WE HAVE BEEN EVALUATING AND THE INFORMATION THAT WE HAVE BEEN SEEING THAT ARE NOT THE METRICS I JUST ASKED FOR THAT WOULD GIVE THE SCHOOL BOARD WHATEVER IT IS THEY HAVE THE ABILITY TO DO WHAT WE HAVEN’T SEEN IS THAT WE ARE AT 5% AT A ROLLING 14-DAY AND 11 TO 12% OF THE PEDIATRIC LEVEL, AND E NEED TO LOOK FORWARD AND BACKWARDS TO SEE WHERE WE’VE BEEN AND WHERE WE’RE GOING TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR EMERGENCY RESOURCES AND, AND PEOPLE ARE PREPARED JUST AS WE DO WITH HURRICANES WHEN WE SEE A — TRACK, WE MAKE SURE WE’RE PREPARED SOEGIVEN THAT WE HAVEN’T SEEN ANYONE TAKE ACTION ON THE DATA WE HAVE BEEN TRACKING THAT WOULD RECOMMEND THAT T NOT REALLY SAFE O — IN PLACE, I WOULD LIKE GUIDANCE ON WHEN WE, YOU KNOW, SAY SOMETHING OR HOW WE PREPARE OUR STAFF FOR BEING OVERWHELMED WITH EXPOSURES THAT WILL OCCUR GIVEN THAT MANY PEOPLE WITH NO SOCIAL DISTANCING POSSIBLE I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT TO RECOGNIZE THAT WE ARE SEEING A POSSIBLE RISK THAT WE NEED TO PREPARE FOR I’LL STOP THERE IAL >> LES MILLER, JR.: I’LL AGREE WE NEED TO BE READY BUT IT’S NOT OUR CALL >> KIMBERLY OVERMAN: I GET IT I GET IT UNFORTUNATEL Y, IT’S NOT OUR CALL COMMISSIONER MURMAN, YOU’RE RECOGNIZED >> SANDRA MURMAN: I WAS SO ENGROSSED IN YOU ALL’S CONVERSATION THAT I ALMOST FORGOT WHAT I WAS GOING TO ASK I WANT TO KNOW, DR. HOLT, JUST A SIMPLE QUESTION BECAUSE I KEEP BRINGING THIS UP EVERY MEETING ABOUT WHAT’S THE END GAME HERE I KNOW THAT I DON’T WANT — I MEAN, IF THE POSITIVE RATE GETS TO 5% OR LOWER, DO YOU CONSIDER THAT A POINT WHERE WE CAN MAKE CHANGES IN UR POLICIES, OR I GUESS I JUST WANT TO ASK THAT AND, AND ALSO DO YOU THINK WE SHOULD WAIT SEVERAL WEEKS AFTER THE SCHOOLS OPEN JUST IN CASE THOSE NUMBERS CHANGE AGAIN? >> YES, MA’AM AGAIN, I DON’T SET POLICY

I CAN EDUCATE ON, AND MY OPINIONS, IN MANY CASES, THEY’RE, THEY’RE, IF THEY CARRY ANY WEIGHT, IT’S STILL UP TO THE INDIVIDUAL ELECTED OFFICIALS TO MAKE THAT DECISION >> SANDRA MURMAN: BUT IN YOUR OPINION IS 5% GETTING TO BE A SAFER THRESHHOLD? NOT TALKING ABOUT POLICY, JUST IN YOUR OPINION? >> ABSOLUTELY, AS LONG AS OUR TESTING REMAI REREMAINS AT LEAST ABOVE THAT WHAT DR. LOCKWOOD INITIALLY SET WHICH WAS SORT OF, MY LOWER THRESHOLD, NUMBERS OF 5% OF TESTING DOES GIVE US A CONFIDENCE THAT WE ARE TESTING ENOUGH TO IDENTIFY THOSE THAT ARE POSITIVE THAT ALSO MEANS THAT AS THE CASES ARE REDUCED, THEN WE HAVE A MUCH BETTER CHANCE OF RESPONDING RAPIDLY TO CASES AND REDUCING THE TRANSMISSION INSCHOOLS AS ANYTHING OPENS TYPICALLY AND E SAW IT I THINK WITH THE MASK ORDER, YOU ONLY REALLY BEGIN TO SEE SOME IMPACT PROBABLY BE ABOUT THREE WEEKS AFTER SOME CHANGE AND EVEN ON THE UPSLOPE I SAW IF YOU SAW COMPARED TO OUR OPENING AND WHERE WE HIT THE JULY MARK, SO I DON’T THINK YOU’LL KNOW MUCH UNTIL THAT OCTOBER 1st, AROUND THERE, THREE OR SO WEEKS, FOUR WEEKS AFTER THE OFFICIAL OPENING AND I’LL STOP THERE >> SANDRA MURMAN: THAT’S KIND OF MY FINAL THOUGHT I APPRECIATE ALL THE WORK YOU DO I DON’T MEAN TO PUT YOU ON THE SPOT OR ANYTHING BECAUSE I UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WORK FOR THE STATE AND THE STATE IS KIND OF DICTATING SOME OF THE POLICIES THAT ARE OING OUT THERE SO BUT I DO APPRECIATE YOUR INFORMATION ALWAYS I THINK IT’S VERY HELPFUL THANK YOU >> LES MILLER, JR.: COMMISSIONER KEMP, YOU’RE RECOGNIZED >> PAT KEMP: THANK YOU I’LL TRY TO NOT E REPETITIOUS I GOT CUT OFF THE Wi-Fi AND GOT ON THE PHONE INITIALLY DR. HOLT YOU WERE TALK ABOUT PEDIATRIC TESTING AND AT LEAST AT THAT INITIAL CONVERSATION, I WASN’T CLEAR FROM THE WAY THAT YOU AID IT SO YOU’RE OW GOING TO BE DIVIDING YOUR TEST RESULTS, THEY’RE GOING TO BE SEEN BETWEEN THE AGES OF 0 AND 4, 5 AND 10, AND 11 AND 18, IS THAT ACCURATE? >> I DON’T HAVE THE EXACT RANGES WE HAVE I THINK WE BROKE THEM UP A LITTLE DIFFERENT IT’S IN THE FINAL PHASES OF I THINK GETTING REVIEWED BUT IT WILL, IT WILL EFFECTIVELY BE FOUR TO FIVE AGE RANGES FROM 0 ALL THE WAY UP TO THE YOUNG ADULTS I THINK WE WENT UP TO 24 OR 5 I THINK JUST TRYING TO CAPTURE BOTH SCHOOLS, PRIMARY, SCHOOLS, HIGH SCHOOLS, AND UNIVERSITIES >> OKAY,, I WAS CONCERNED AND I WROTE DOWN THE NUMBERS EARLY, EARLY ON WHEN YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT THIS EVEN BEFORE THE STORM PRESENTATION AND WHAT YOU SAID THEN WAS 0 TO 4 TO 5 TO 10 AND 11 TO 18 BUT I WOULD JUST BE CONCERNED THAT WE GET THESE NUMBERS BECAUSE WE’RE HEARING, THOSE ARE VERY, VERY DIFFERENT IMPACTS YOU KNOW, AS I’VE READ IN OTHER LITERATURE ACROSS THE COUNTRY IN PARTICULAR 10 OR 11 CAN BE AS APPARENTLY SPREAD AS MUCH AS ANY ADULT AND THEN I THINK IT WOULD BE IMPORTANT TO SEPARATE IT OUT SO WHEN YOU GET TO 18 YEARS OLD AS WELL 18 TO 25 SO I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN THOSE CATEGORIES JUST FOR THE RECORD THE OTHER IS WE SEEM TO BE TESTING AS I UNDERSTAND IT, FAR LESS IN THESE AGE GROUPS BECAUSE THEY ARE FAR LESS SYMPTOMATIC AND THEN THEY DON’T COME O US SO IS THAT, THAT’S ACCURATE THAT WE HAVE FAR LESS TESTING OF THOSE GROUPS >> YES, MA’AM, I THINK THAT IS ACCURATE THIS AGAIN IS PROBABLY BEST TO LOOK AT THE RATE ER 100 TO SEE IF HOW THAT COMPARES I HAVEN’T LOOKED AT

SPECIFICALLY, BUT MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT AN UNDERTESTED POPULATION, NOT NOT SURPRISINGLY GIVEN, IT’S REALLY PURELY DRIVEN BY THE PARENTS AND DRIVEN BY THE SITUATION OF EITHER SYMPTOMATIC HILDREN AND WE KNOW THERE’S A, 30 TO 40% OF PEOPLE INFECTED ARE ASYMPTOMATIC THE OTHER GROUP THAT WE HAVE DONE MORE TESTING IS IN THE CONTACTS IF THEY’RE IN A FAMILY OR KNOWN TO HAVE BEEN EXPOSED WORKING WITH THE SCHOOLS, WE’RE PLANNING, WE’RE PREPARING AND WE ANTICIPATE SIGNIFICANT MORE TESTING AS CHILDREN CALL IN FOR SICK, SICK CALL, AND POTENTIALLY EVEN OR EXPOSED SO THAT MAY CHANGE IN THE COMING WEEKS I’LL STOP THERE >> PAT KEMP: AND IS THERE ANY PROTOCOL? SINCE A LOT OF THE KIDS ARE ASYMPTOMATIC AND WON’T HAVE TEMPERATURES OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT, IT COULD BE VERY POSSIBLE THAT HUGE NUMBERS OF KIDS INFECTED WITH COVID COULD BE BYPASSED FOR TESTING, CORRECT? I DON’T ANYTHING THAT WOULD BRING THAT TO OUR ATTENTION EXCEPT IF THEY WERE SYMPTOMATIC >> I MEAN, YOU’RE CORRECT IN OUR CURRENT TECHNOLOGY, THE WAY IT’S WORKS WITH THE NASAL SWABS, OR EVEN ORAL SWABS, ARE SOMEWHAT DIFFICULT IN CHILDREN, BUT IT REALLY LIMITS THE, THE SURVEILLANCE FROM I THINK UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH FLORIDA’S GOING TO TEST A CERTAIN PERCENTAGE OF THEIR STUDENTS COMING BACK CAN’T REALLY DO THAT IN THE SCHOOL SETTING AT THIS TIME BUT IF THE TECHNOLOGY CHANGES, THAT COULD MAKE IT EASIER BUT ESSENTIALLY IT’S GOING TO BE DRIVEN BY SYMPTOMS AND PARENTAL DESIRE, PARTICULARLY ASSOCIATED WITH THE CONTACT EXPOSURES THAT I’VE TALKED ABOUT >> PAT KEMP: ALL RIGHT IT SOUNDS LIKE WE COULD HAVE WIDESPREAD SPREAD ITHOUT KNOWING IT >> LES MILLER, JR.: LAST QUESTION, COMMISSIONER KEMP COME ON >> PAT KEMP: WELL, ONE OF THE SPEAKERS AT THE BEGINNING HERE SAID — I HAVE A COUPLE MORE ONE OF THE SPEAKERS AT THE BEGINNING SAID THAT, THAT THERE’S A NEW PROTOCOL AND THAT THE GOVERNOR HAS STATED THAT WE, NAT INSTEAD OF REPORTING EVERY DAY, THAT THERE WOULD ONLY BE BE REPORTING IN TWO WEEKS AGAIN THAT SOUNDS REALLY DANGEROUS IS THAT ACCURATE? AND IS THERE ANY REASON FOR THAT BUT FOR LACK OF TRANSPARENCY? >> I’M CERTAINLY NOT GOING TO SPECULATE ON THE REASONS, BUT WHAT THEY’VE DONE IS CHANGED TO WHAT THEY CALL THE 14-DAY AVERAGE SO WE ARE REPORTING EX-OFFICIO THEY ARE REPORTING IT DAILY AND IT CHANGES, IT’S JUST THAT SO YOU DROP THE DAY 15 DAYS AGO AND ADD THE ONE HERE AND YOU GET AN AVERAGE OUR DATA, WHILE WE’RE GOING TO BE, OUR AIMING FOR WOULD BE ACTUALLY THE NUMBER OF NEW CASES PER DAY TO LOOK AT, AND BUT ULTIMATELY IT GOES BACK TO THE THE 14-DAY AVERAGE, SEVEN-DAY BETTER, YOU NEED TO AVERAGE THEM OUT YOU GET TOO MANY SWINGS IF YOU JUST LOOK AT ONE DAY AT A TIME IT’S LIKE WATCHING THE STOCK MARKET >> PAT KEMP: WELL, THAT’S TRUE EXCEPT, YOU KNOW, I WOULD LIKE TO JUST KNOW THAT WE’RE GETTING IT BEFORE 14 DAYS BECAUSE BY THEN IT COULD BE AS WE KNOW HAVE GONE WILD I JUST LIKE TO, OU HAD MENTIONED REGIONAL AND SYSTEMS AND REGIONAL REPORTING AND THINGS LIKE THAT AND I WOULD SAY THAT WHILE THE DASHBOARD IS GOOD TO HAVE BECAUSE IT DRILLS DOWN TO HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, WHICH IS OUR CHARGE, I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS IT DOES IS IT SEPARATES US FROM UNDERSTANDING JUST HOW IN THE CONTEXT OF THINGS, HOW, WHILE THINGS ARE IMPROVING, GREATLY, AND I AM VERY HAPPY TO SEE THAT AND I, I ATTRIBUTE THAT IN HUGE PART TO MASK MANDATES, BUT I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS IT DOES IS OBSCURES HOW, HOW HIGH AND HOW BAD WE HAVE GOTTEN AND YOU KNOW, I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT, AND I’M WONDERING IF WE CAN GET THIS IN CONTEXT, YOU KNOW, AMERICA BEING THE MOST INFECTED NATION IN THE WORLD, FLORIDA THE SECOND MOST NUMBER OF CASES IN THE WHOLE U.S. AND THE SECOND PER CAPITA NUMBER OF CASES OF ANY STATE IN THE NATION, BUT AS WELL, MIAMI, BROWARD, AND PALM BEACH BEING THE CENTERS, AND THEN TWO OTHER

COUNTIES HAVING HIGH, HIGH CONCENTRATIONS, AND THOSE ARE HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY AND ORANGE COUNTY AND WHILE THE GOVERNOR HAS ALLOWED FOR MIAMI, BROWARD, AND PALM BEACH TO DECIDE FOR THEMSELVES ON THEIR OWN PROTOCOLS ACCORDING TO HOW SERIOUS IT IS THERE, I WOULD JUST, I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT FOR US TO KEEP TRACK OF THE FIVE COUNTIES, OF HE STATE, AND PERHAPS SOME OTHER NATIONS AS GREAT MODELS, BUT I THINK TO HAVE THIS IN CONTEXT BECAUSE AS NUMBER FOUR FOR INSPECTIONS IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA, WITH THIS HUGE PER CAPITA, WE ARE THE ONE COUNTY AS NUMBER FOUR THAT HAS THE MOST HARM AND YET THE LEAST POWER TO IMPOSE AND CONTROL AND TRY TO BRING THIS DOWN TO THE LOWEST POSSIBLE LEVEL OF EVENT AGAIN WITH OUR ECONOMICCK UP DEVELOPMENT AND OPEN OUR SCHOOLS AND DO ALL THE THINGS WE NEED TO DO WE ARE UNIQUELY — >> LES MILLER, JR.: COMMISSIONER KEMP, LET’S BRING IT IN FOR A LANDING, PLEASE >> PAT KEMP: YEP WE ARE UNIQUELY HARMED BEING NUMBER IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA AND BEING DENIED THE ABILITY TO REGULATE ACCORDING TO THE SCIENCE WHEN WE CAN GET IT AND HAVING THOSE RECOMMENDATIONS AND I’LL JUST SAY THIS MY DAUGHTER LIVES IN CANADA I’VE BEEN FOLLOWING CANADA THEY HAVE TWICE OUR POPULATION, 40 MILLION PEOPLE WE HAVE SOME 4,000 CASES THEY HAVE 90 IT’S INCREDIBLE WHAT YOU CAN DO WHEN YOU’RE GOING TO IT EVEN WITH THIS VERY HIGHLY DANGEROUS VIRUS WE COULD BE DOING SO MUCH BETTER SO I’M GLAD TO SEE THE NUMBERS COMING DOWN, BUT I THINK WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THIS IN CONTEXT AND ACT ACCORDINGLY >> LES MILLER, JR.: DR.
