"Great but that's in the western part of Broward county what about something closer to the downtown business district someone's going back to work they have an issue they want to get a quick test have a place to go so we're gonna put one in fort Lauderdale we're gonna put one in the Florida panhandle in Escambia county now they have not had a significant outbreak compared to other parts of a southeast Florida but it's important to be able to have the access for our folks in northwest Florida Leake county they're gonna have one of the lead call your border most likely no actually we're gonna do it at the twins twins stadium we're gonna do it at the at the Minnesota Twins stadium and people be able to go into the parking lot do that we're also going to do Sarasota manatee because I think you do need more testing a manatee has had nursing home outbreak so having this center may help maybe some workers will go we have we are sending National Guard in that area but I think that that would be a very good thing and then in a Miami Dade we're actually gonna have a hybrid drive in and walk inside at the Miami beach convention center so the people that want to walk up can go on one side of the building people that want to drive can go on the other side of the building so all of these out will have the capacity to probably do at least seven hundred fifty test today and because we have the high throughput lab contracts every day comes through there we can send to those some of the hospitals are involved in this and they test themselves and get good results so all of that is on the table and we think that that's very important as we move forward now more labs so this is really exciting we've been able to procure in R. V. that has a mobile lab inside of it so we're gonna be able to take this mobile lab in the R. V. drive it to different parts of Florida and then we have a forty five minute test I was working at the White House I was working with Jared Kushner we've got it set up we're gonna have fifteen thousand of these tests are gonna be able to do thirty five hundred a week so you can go to a nursing home you can have all the staff come get tested put it in the cartridges the residents and you get an answer within an hour so you would talk about identifying an outbreak and then and then keeping the cluster contained this is gonna be a huge tool for us so we think we're going to be using it for for for health care workers for nursing homes and some of our high risk areas but that concept of really having a mobile site because it's one thing that the National Guard go and swap the people they still got to send it to a lab we're not only bringing the slobs we're bringing the lab to them so we can get them very quick results so we hope to have that by the beginning of the week and start debuting that very very simple to do thirty five hundred a week of spot tests particularly in long term care facilities that is going to be a huge huge boon for effort to prevent this thing from really getting in those facilities contact tracing you're starting to hear a lot about it very few people were talking about at the beginning of this but I can tell you the state of Florida department of health in our county health departments have been doing this the entire time and in fact I think one of the reasons why the outbreak hasn't been a significant outside a southeast Florida is because they were doing the really tough work to contact trace isolate the people that test positive and then identify people who were in the contacts who may develop symptoms they've been doing this religiously this whole time and this is going to be a way that if you're in a situation we don't know what's going to happen the further down we go to this but if you see an outbreak starting to develop you identify the person that test positive trace their contacts and it's it's it's kind of like putting a puzzle together you do it and then you're able to to hopefully contain it at least somewhat sometimes entirely you can do to contact tracing so we've added a bunch of epidemiologists through this because we knew was going to be important we have some of the students from the various medical or public health schools and we're probably gonna add even more if circumstances warrant that said the contact tracing is going to continue in the state of Florida it was always part of our strategy very few people were talking about it because I just don't think that they quite understood what was going on at the time but this this saves a lot of of spread particularly in communities that didn't have the widespread transmission like you sign Dade and Broward okay so what is phase one phase one for us now when we were going about this I received input from physicians are healthcare executives small business owners elected officials unemployed Floridians who are hurting small law enforcement we had a task force that convene that got a lot of ideas together and submitted to me there's a report that I've now read that I've incorporated some of the recommendations not all but some into what we're gonna do today we're gonna put that out publicly for y'all I sometime I think today or tomorrow morning you be able to see that report so this was something where we really wanted to get it right I I I would like to announce what we're doing two weeks ago if I could but I wanted the data I wanted to fax I've been able to consult with some of the top physicians in the state of Florida some of these are in some of the best hospitals in the world about the outbreak about where they see this going and about the next steps that needed to be taken so that advice from physicians and the input was very very important and what I decided to do okay so here's phase one this really tracks what the president put out for phase one the school since they are doing distance learning are going to remain in distance learning we are not of course can allow visitors to these long term care facilities I am willing to reevaluate that if we have enough rapid tests where someone could come in test and if they test negative they want to go see one of their parents they may be a lot of men but it's going to require that capacity before re relax that make but it's tough you have people there that don't have human contact with their family and this is been going on now for almost two months so there's ways that we can do it safely you know I would certainly rate revisited I think the main changes that you're going to see are the elective surgeries are able to resume and that's gonna take place statewide people talk about elective surgeries as if it's something like cosmetic surgery something it doesn't need to happen elective in most cases just means it's elective exactly when you schedule it but it's usually something you need to get done so I want that to be turned back on the requirements of that is that the hospitals represent they're gonna continue to maintain a surge capacity of if we see an uptick in cove it that they have adequate PPE and Archit Arora rely on the state for that and that they're willing able to proactively work with the long term care facilities and nursing homes in their communities to be able to prevent outbreaks and I think they're all gonna be willing to do that the president's guidelines talked about quote large venues and they mentioned restaurants movie theaters and churches now I never close churches we relied on voluntary social distancing I decline to go for movie theaters now I just think it's practically difficult to do the social distancing indoor environments I think are more likely for transmission so even though you could have done that in phase one yeah I think prudence dictates that we go a little slow on that the restaurants what we're gonna do is allow outdoor seating with social distance things we need to have at least six feet apart from the tables and then indoors they can do twenty five percent capacity with the CDC recommended spacing I think that outdoor transmission as far as we we've seen has been more difficult than the indoor climate controlled transition and so I think being outside if you're six feet away to me that would not be any more risky than going to cosco or some of the things that Floridians have been doing throughout this whole time so I think it's a way to give people maybe maven reduce density and somebody's grocery stores I mean you have some some of these things are really really packed so maybe it'll reduce intensity thereby giving people another option and then obviously you know we want these folks to be able to get back in business if they can do it safely and I think I was convinced that that this is safe I had some medical folks recommend the outdoors to me and I thought that made more sense and so we're doing that some people the task force recommended fifty percent capacity inside I think we'll start with twenty five with the outdoor and then see how it goes retail can go for indoor now we have had a lot of retail open I mean home depot all this I was in Broward the other day they're all lined up with their face masks six feet apart outside some people come out to store the new people go in so there's a lot of process being done already on that the rest of the retail other retail was never close down any orders I did people do curbside delivery they would do phone orders but the essential activity was not considered going into a store and congregating for retail unless the retail was deemed essential business we're now while relaxing that we're allowing the twenty five percent indoor so they can continue doing the curbside everything they've been doing now have a twenty five percent indoor have to follow the CDC recommendations for social distancing we're not going to change the bars AS in that was recommended not to change the bars they did record they said you could do the gyms in phase one I'm gonna look to see what some other states how they've done and what the results are I I do want people to be able to get into jams and if I get read if I get some guidelines that makes sense and I see other states have done it and it's been okay then we'll obviously reevaluate that I would say the same with some of the personal services like the hairdressers a lot of these folks are small business folks they have been able to sell a lot of their products on curbside but this was something that that was not considered essential business or activity to have the face to face close contact I think there may be ways we've got ideas about how you can do it to make it low risk I'm gonna look to see what happens in other states before now phase one is not going to include that phase one in terms of our vulnerable populations and we've been messaging that's really since early March if you're sixty five and up if you have a significant underlying condition you need to avoid crowds avoid close contact with people outside your household and stay home as much as you can this is a disease if you look at our for Talladega rates we have at least ninety three percent of the fatalities I believe are are fifty five and over close to eighty five or sixty five and over between eighty and eighty five percent of our for tallies in Florida are sixty five and over so the risk is greater in these groups and we advise them to continue to urge caution and how they interact there's a lot of social distancing it's going to be going on restaurant retail store obviously the essential businesses we've been having of doing social distancing I would tell people the most important social distance we can do is distancing the vulnerable population from those who are not because if you're not vulnerable you may be a carrier of this and not not have symptoms are not know it and your risk you have my wrist to pass it along so we can do that yeah we're going to see a lot of progress being made as we go forward we're going to continue with the CDC guidelines about physical distance saying when in in public social groups at ten or fewer we're gonna continue doing that and were recommending face masks if you're in face to face interactions with people particularly in the workplace and if you can't adequately social distance so this is not get we're not going to find people if they don't do it and I think sometimes if you going by yourself for a job you probably don't need a facemask if you're enough for face to face business that to me is got to be a business practice and then if you're in situations just in the public we may not be able to keep that distance then this is a good thing to be able to deal Florida's next steps we are going to be data driven we're going to focus on the facts the things that we're gonna look at to go to phase two are gonna be the things that brought us to do mitigation in the first place primarily hospital capacity in hospital resources if we start seeing cases where more and more people are going into the hospital and we think that that it might be a search that they can't handle that is going to be something that we are going out look at and that is going to be something that we're obviously gonna have to take into account so long as there's continued availability so long as we're not seeing a flood of people into the hospital that obviously is going to be good progress we are also going to continue to look at the rate of positivity for our tax what's gonna happen is you saw all the expanded capacity that we're gonna have we think we'll be able to do.
