This meeting is being recorded.
Sheri Thompson-Alvarez
37:23
Can you share how many were fully vaccinated?
Katey Roemmele
39:19
Dr. Hansen, Do you have any recommendations as to where to buy rapid tests?
Sandy Stratton
39:20
I'm hearing about fraudulent vaccine cards. How is the University verifying the reporting for students and employees?
Roxane Ronca
39:44
If students are vaccinated, and therefore are not regularly tested, but they tell me they feel sick and ask what should they do, do I send them to student testing at college hall?
Jessica Lindsay
40:39
Is "Western's COVID Dashboard" being kept up to date?
Lea Aune
41:27
There is a voluntary testing program available to vaccinated employees; information about the program and steps to enroll can be found on the HR website: https://hr.wwu.edu/employee-testing-program
Andreas Riemann
43:26
If a student is getting a positive COVID test and they went to class shortly before, will instructors be informed as they, the instructor, and other students probably would be close contacts?
Cindy Monger (she/her)
44:16
The dashboard says zero cases. I'm wondering if it is possible to get full transparency with positive cases. Not just through the student testing, but any cases that are connected to WWU as identified by the health department.
Tracey Bertels
44:29
There have been students who entered College Hall to ask where the COVID testing is. I feel this leaves the CH employees more at risk. How will you handle this?
Robert Clark
45:43
What about those of us with the J&J vaccine?
Sheri Thompson-Alvarez
47:20
Is contact tracing being done for those students who tested positive yesterday?
Kris Baldridge
47:41
Can employees book voluntary testing appointments at the airport site? Last week you could only book at Meridian St.
Kate Blizzard
48:32
What about the WA Notify app? Will Students be recommended to use that App to notify folks?
Lea Aune
49:29
Employees enrolled in the voluntary testing program can book appointments at the Meridian location only. We will check with NW Labs to see if we can offer the airport location as an option.
Jessica Lindsay
56:09
Will we have time to talk about the Green Pass/COVID Pass or Tracker?
Susan Cahill
56:11
Classes must be taught in their approved modality starting winter unless Temporary approval through ACC is acquired.
Sharon Colman
01:05:17
If the Remote Work Agreement is initiated by the supervisor, does the esign need to be routed to the employee to sign off on? Or do I just send it straight to HR?
Adam Lorio
01:05:19
A couple more notes on the dashboard: Last date/time data is refreshed is shown in the lower right corner. The Box for # of cases through the quarter, shows ongoing totals of Student and Employee cases that have been reported to us.
John Furman
01:06:27
Here’s the link to the building ventilation information https://www.fm.wwu.edu/building-ventilation-information/ and here’s the link to the data tool: http://bac-datatool.fm.wwu.edu:443/DataTool/#apogeeView
Katey Roemmele
01:06:50
This question got missed as it was at the beginning of the thread: Does Dr. Hansen (or anyone else) know where to buy rapid test kits, either in town or online.
Mikayla King (she/her)
01:07:25
data tool like does not open
Lea Aune
01:07:26
Sharon: Yes, the remote work agreement should be signed by the employee. Thank you!
Jennifer Gildner
01:07:41
Is Old Main not included in the building ventilation info or am I just missing it?
John Furman
01:09:18
Both Old Main and Performing Arts are done - we will get those on the site!
Jessica Lindsay
01:09:37
I saw a bunch of rapid tests near the registers at Walgreen's on Samish
Adam Lorio
01:10:44
Regarding Personal Exemptions: We had a small number approved for students prior to the updating of the policy. Since personal exemptions are no longer accepted, every student on a personal exemption has either: submitted vaccine information or applied for an updated medical or religious waiver. There are currently no approved personal exemptions.
Tonya
01:14:34
Is the same temporary exemption available for staff?
Sheri Thompson-Alvarez
01:17:36
David - can you get the Pfizer booster at any location in Whatcom County offering the Pfizer vaccine?
Jessica Lindsay
01:17:53
Did we already talk about the COVID Pass/Green Pass?
mulderc
01:18:36
I understand that the students are being sent badges regarding their status each day. Are employers on campus checking these badges when students report to work, and is it appropriate that employers ask like some of the instructors are?
ras
01:19:55
Doesn't showing the pass divulge the student's vax status? (the second green pass in the samples on the health center's website).
mulderc
01:22:19
Yes it does. Thank you
Kate Blizzard
01:23:09
Who is allowed to request to see the badge status?
ras
01:23:33
I'm seeing the green pass says "unvaccinated" right on the pass (on the sample page)
Juliet Evans
01:24:00
Can student employees voluntarily participate in surveillance testing on campus if they are vaccinated then?
Shelli Soto (she/her/hers)
01:25:57
Staff and faculty acting in their official capacity as institutional actors and in fulfilling their official university duties.
Wanna Lo VanCuren
