I mean, it's a sign perhaps, that the mass mandate may be effective. Was it something that everybody thought could work in the medical field? Absolutely, state health officer Dr Scott Harris says. Yeah, I certainly I think that the mandate is working. Certainly hope so, he says. I think it's really difficult to prove that there's a 1 to 1.

"This is all things considered from NPR News. I'm Mary Louise Kelly and I'm Ari Shapiro Cove in 19 infections are now on the rise in 40 states, and that is forcing many governors to rethink their reopening plans. In Alabama yesterday, Governor Kay Ivey extended her state's safer at home orders until the end of July. Well, we're not overwhelm dead. We should not think that because someone feels more normal than spraying that we're back to normal fact his folks we are still in the thick Of this virus disease, and it is deadly. The state is now logging an average of 1000 new cases a day. Hospitalizations are at their highest level since the pandemic began. Dr. Scott Harris is Alabama's state health officer, and he joins us now welcome to all things considered. Safer at home order that the governor extended yesterday is largely a set of recommendations. Why not go farther and put restrictions in place to get this under control? I think we certainly would prefer to have additional restrictions that we felt like they could be effective. In fact, the current safer at home order has restrictions on retail capacity on restaurants, including capacity in certain sanitation and hygiene practices. It continues to have some Physical distancing requirements related to groups and, frankly, we don't necessarily get the compliance. We would like to see. Even with the current orders in place. You're saying that you would put more restrictions in place if you felt like they could be effective. Other states have like closed bar's. For example, Alabama has not. Are you saying in order to close bars wouldn't be effective. I think in order to close bars would be effective in many ways, but not as effective, perhaps as things that I wish we could have done a few months ago. We ask a lot from the state. Originally with our stay at home order, and for the most part, people complied, but really at this point that the state does not really have An appetite for AA lot more restrictions. And you know, By the time I r stay home order was ready to be rescinded. We had quite a number of people who were flaunting the order. We have law enforcement. There was Had stated publicly they were not going to enforce the order. And frankly, it's very difficult. Tio help voters in place if they're going to be flooded. So just to make sure I understand you correctly. You're saying something like An order requiring people to wear masks instead of just recommending, which is the current state of play. An order requiring people to wear masks might be effective might save lives but would not be followed by people in Alabama. So there's no point in putting such an order in place. Is that right? No, I think it's very clear that orders to wear masks are not being followed in many cases already. What we learned is that we absolutely have to have local buy in support of local officials and local legislators. If we're going to have success with these orders, we have encouraged municipalities throughout the state to, for example, have mask ordinances, and in fact, many have and yet enforcement has been a big issue. So it's been very difficult to contemplate a health order that would apply to all parts of the state big and small. At the same time, Many mayors have said that they would have an easier time controlling local outbreaks if the state had a stronger response. I mean, they're saying you're kind of hang them out to dry here. No. Well, we're actually in Alabama are mayors actually have the authority to institute those orders? Any family would like And many of them how I think it's easy for them to blame the Health Department when it's actually within their ability to do that, if they would choose to do so. Another area where Alabama differs from state. Seeing spikes like California and Florida is that those states of closed beaches. Alabama has not. Why leave them open? I think closing beaches actually would help prevent transmission of disease. There's no question about that. And yet, as we begin to open things back up, regardless of the rules that are in place, we still have difficulty you have Inc from the public in many of those areas, so if it would be incredibly effective, I think that would certainly be something we would like to do. Just not convinced that would be the case. How does politics play into this? I mean, does the political will exists to do the things that need to be done to keep people in Alabama safe? I think it depends on what things you think need to be done. There's a lot of opposition to things that people feel like is an infringement of their personal liberties. It's very frustrating to us in public health. We feel like we have, you know the data to support what we want to do, and we're trying to make recommendations to keep people healthy. And yet, unfortunately, it feels like the science doesn't win the argument all the time. You know, depending on who we're discussing those with it's really kind of a mixed bag around the state. Dr. Scott Harris is the state health officer for the state of Alabama. Thank you for joining us today. Thank you for having me. To Boston. Now.

"I'm Mary Louise Kelly and I'm Ari Shapiro Cove in 19 infections are now on the rise in 40 states, and that is forcing many governors to rethink their reopening plans in Alabama yesterday, Governor K. I've extended her state's safer at home orders until the end of July. Well, we're not overwhelmed yet. We should not think that because I will Some of fields more normal than spraying that we're back to normal fact his folks way are still in the thick. Of this virus disease, and it is deadly. The state is now logging an average of 1000 new cases a day. Hospitalizations are at their highest level since the pandemic began. Dr. Scott Harris is Alabama's state health officer, and he joins us now welcome to all things considered. You are thieves safer at home order that the governor extended yesterday is largely a set of recommendations. Why not go farther and put restrictions in place to get this under control? I think we certainly would prefer to have additional restrictions that we felt like they could be effective. In fact, the current safer at home order has restrictions on retail capacity on restaurants, including capacity in certain sanitation and hygiene practices. It continues to have some Physical distancing requirements related to groups and, frankly, we don't necessarily get the compliance we would like to see even with the current orders and plenty You're saying that you would put more restrictions in place if you felt like they could be effective. Other states have like closed bar's. For example, Alabama has not. Are you saying in order to close bars wouldn't be effective. I think in order to close bars would be effective in many ways, but not as effective, perhaps as things that I wish we could have done a few months ago. We ask a lot from the state originally with our stay at home order. And for the most part, people complied. But it really at this point that the state does not really have an appetite for AA lot more restrictions. And you know, By the time our stay home order was ready to be rescinded. We had quite a number of people who were flaunting the order. We had law enforcement. There was Had stated publicly they were not going to enforce the order. And frankly, it's very difficult. Tio put help voters in place if they're going to be flaunted, so just to make sure I understand you correctly. You're saying something like An order requiring people to wear masks instead of just recommending, which is the current state of play. An order requiring people to wear masks might be effective might save lives but would not be followed by people in Alabama. So there's no point in putting such an order in place. Is that right? No, I think it's very clear that orders to wear masks are not being followed in many cases already. What we learned is that we absolutely have to have local buy in and and support of local officials and local legislators. If we're going to have success with these orders, we have encouraged municipalities throughout the state to, for example, have mask ordinances, and in fact, many have and yet enforcement has been a big issue. So it has been very difficult to contemplate a health order that would apply to all parts of the state big and small. At the same time, Many mayors have said that they would have an easier time controlling local outbreaks if the state had a stronger response. I mean, they're saying you're kind of hanging him out to dry here. No. Well, we're actually in Alabama are mayors actually have the authority to institute those orders? Anytime we would like in many of them have? I think it's easy for them to Blame the Health Department when it's actually within their ability to do that, if they would choose to do so. Another area where Alabama differs from state. Seeing spikes like California and Florida. Is that those states of closed beaches. Alabama has not. Why leave them open? I think closing beaches actually would help prevent transmission of disease. There's no question about that. And yet, as we begin to open things back up, regardless of the rules that are in place, we still have difficulty you have Inc from the public in many of those areas, so if it would be incredibly effective, I think that would certainly be something we would like to do. Just not convinced that would be the case. How does politics play into this? I mean, does the political will exist to do the things that need to be done to keep people in Alabama safe? I think it depends on what things you think need to be done. There's a lot of opposition to things that people feel like is an infringement of their personal liberties. It's very frustrating to us in public health. We feel like we have, you know the data to support what we want to do, and we're trying to make recommendations to keep people healthy. And yet, unfortunately, it feels like the science doesn't win the arguments all the time. You know, depending on who we're discussing them with. It's really kind of a mixed bag around the state. Dr. Scott Harris is the state health officer for the state of Alabama. Thank you for joining us today. Thank you for having me. To Boston. Now.

S. Senate is meeting in a pro forma session but it's possible some bill could pass the Associated Press reporting the Senate democratic leader Chuck Schumer says agreement has been reached on major elements of the nearly five hundred billion dollar corona virus eight packages package for small businesses as well as additional help for hospitals and virus testing and that's at four PM eastern and now governor Tom wolf of Pennsylvania he held a teleconference about eleven AM eastern with reporters on the corona virus pandemic this runs just over half hour good morning thank you thank you everybody for being here Agence trying to to do what we can to to so that I can be as successful as you need me to be given the unusual circumstances that we're we're all going through but I I just really appreciate your willingness to to try to make this work and and I hope the you you know that we're doing the best we can so now turn it over for your questions Sarah thank you governor and personal start with Stephen Caruso from capital star followed by Alex Ruoff from Bloomberg even hi I'm gonna walk me through times so my my main question is just on your public health measures in the enforcement of ban you know it seems like the enforcement behind a white state police have issued just less likely since individuals violate state home they've issued no citations to businesses yet the massive goals you have set or just guidance I think we should be going out of the thing that it bothers you taking the sort of tax when it comes to enforce very concerned that that could be you know like sort of taken advantage of by people if they just maps in maps the side that they were not going to listen to these orders anymore yeah that's a great question actually the state police have written warnings and there has been one citation as far as I understand the individuals and local law enforcement has has also but basically this is this is a reckoning that that if we have to enforce it it's not gonna work one point eight million Pennsylvanians basically yourself and forcing us in in the key is that law enforcement needs a law enforcement nor the legislators nor me nor the pope that anybody is is or seen anybody to do anything or all being directed and guided by the fires here and buyers that determines what we need to do if we ignore these these ideas about staying at home if we ignore social distancing if we ignore every two the idea that we need to avoid every chance to in fact somebody else with this disease we do that and that at our peril and that's not me talking that's not a state police officer talking it's it's the virus and I think that in the end to the extent this is working in Pennsylvania and we are flapping the curves it's not because of enforcement is because people in Pennsylvania are actually taking the measures to keep themselves in the people they love and the people around them safe thank you this is a repair C. span radio programming from Tuesday next we have Alex threw off from Bloomberg followed by Elizabeth Hardison at capitals star Alex she Alex on the call the Bloomberg I'm sorry I don't beat myself my apologies thank you governor for taking the time to answer the questions these questions I would ask you you talked a little bit yesterday about you know we re opening the state you're gonna need more you know testing and surveillance capacity you have a sense of where you are in terms of what you have and what you need and how you get there could you call out you know those steps of of how you get to where you need to be to have adequate testing and surveillance capacity for you know the re opening case yeah we question really comes down to how can we give individual workers confidence to go back to work how can we give individual customers the confidence to go back to to shop or browse the place and and I think we we we we do that is with a much more robust testing than we have right now so every day we are working the department tells Pena the entire ministration team is working to an increased capacity spastic the other thing we need is is capacity in our health care system to to treat people who have symptoms and and have this disease and we spent every day a lot of time every day working on that reporting on that and then going back to work to try to get there we we we have done a good job with N. ninety five masks we are in good shape with ventilators so we we are working hard to do more with a surgical masks and gowns but we have surgical masks on the way in and I think we should be okay there gal she still having issues beds ICU beds so we we we measure this every day but if we're going to be successful in the as were successful re opening but it's going to depend on the ubiquity of our testing capacity at the end and how many tests we have all over the state we're we're we're we're increasing that daily in the hope is that we will be in the position fairly quickly to see that needs repairs or diagnostic tests have to be a as you know has already approved antibody tests and and so we we continue to look at that we I think those those are the things we we're going to need and as we as we do our phase three opening we're gonna be doing that in sync with with the capacity for testing my sense is that that by announcing a specific date the date certain that we actually do a better job of focusing all of our efforts on expanding expanding that capacity in expanding the the capacity of the healthcare system to deal with the problems that persist yes thank you the participants from capital star followed by Samuel Gardner from CDS three eleven hi hi governor I think similar question one Alex is I want to ask you if you could help us in much detail if you have what exactly the state is doing to ramp up its testing capacity and like what the current barriers are that you're encountering whether it's requiring re isn't the requiring testing equipment I also want to ask you what it takes when as much detail as possible what steps you're taking to establish a contact tracing programs and if you're of a like kind of ballpark budget and until like work force estimate for what a lot what it will take to put in place really robust contact tracing in Pennsylvania yeah that's a lot of questions but let me see if I can remember but you get to the place where you can get some of the questions that you ask but but in terms of of testing there are a couple different issues first of all the the the the capacity do we have enough platforms and do we have enough of the chips we seem to be in pretty good shape with the number of platforms but we don't have and I think other stations in the same thing is what it takes to actually have the test reagents the smog and things like that so we're we are going out to to the private sector and and working through FEMA to get these things and and we we continue to do that and and and I feel we're making some some progress there the other thing is is not just how many test platforms you have or how many even kids you have it's how are you distributing those and so we're working with vast sites we have a top three of those I think Randy mostly eastern northeastern part of the state but we're also working with small order for states and in order to to make this work we we have to continue to get more and more places for people to to to to go at all nobly we also have I think it's lack four everyone has a a test where you can actually take the swaps do a self test send it off and have it compacts that I I'm not sure how how that's working but again that's the kind of thing that we want to get to this has to be something that is distributed throughout Pennsylvania and and we're working on making sure we have platforms making sure that we have three agents and and things that it takes two to make those platforms allows platforms to work and we're working on the distribution of sites of people all the way I think of the diagnostic test well we we have to get to the point where people can do that frequently and and in their in their homes when it comes to the antibody testing while the FDA has recently approved a few of those when we we continue to look to look at that we have a lab the state lab in Exton and I think a really good director there and and at the lab they're looking at all these new zero serological tests that or or after I want to make sure that that they actually do what they are intended to do so far that the jury is out but I think that's also going to be important to building confidence and then you talk about contract tracing that is something that that we are not working on as we are working on I don't have a budget and I don't don't think that there are at least as far as I'm concerned orders department health is concerned we have found the best way to do that so we don't we don't have a a lot of good things on that at this point we certainly do not have a budget that connecting I answered all your questions governor Tom wolf on a teleconference thank you Daniel Gardner from CVS three followed by Jolie long from WGAL Daniel Daniel Gardner on if not we'll move to Jolie long from WGAL followed by Jeff Spicer from PLS the only hi this is actually more Burkholder flick WGAL virtually I can you hear me OK I think I'm not missed okay thanks for taking my call a quick question about unemployment benefits you know course even hearing a lot from people frustrated with filing having problems with pin numbers any progress we're making on that front since this affects so many Pennsylvanians yeah we we had a huge surge in initial claims and and that overwhelms system so we we're doing a number of things we've invested in technology which which is continue to drop the of the wait time online we have a lot.
