"This intern places Children and adolescents at considerable risk of morbidity and, in some cases, mortality beyond the educational impact. Social impact of school closures. There has been substantial impact on food security and physical activity for Children and families. That's the American Academy of pediatricians, Dr Lloyd Fisher that incoming president of the Massachusetts chapter of that Academy of pediatricians, told reporters. While for most Children, Koven, 19 has not had the devastating and life threatening physical health effects effects that have occurred in adults. The negative impact on their education, Mental health and social development has been substantial unquote. Nothing can take the place of the daily face to face interaction, our Children experience when attending school in person, Dr Fisher said. Senate Health Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander American colleges overall considered the best in the world will be permanently damaged, even closed if they remain in Brown University Presidents Christina Paxson's words, ghost towns, Mitch Daniels, the president of Purdue, wrote. In the Washington Post Up ahead, quote. Failure to take on the job of re opening would not only be anti scientific but also an unacceptable breach of duty. So today, in addition to hearing more about the concerning rise in cases and hospitalizations in some states, I'd like to ask our witnesses and their statements and the answers to questions. Put yourselves in the place of one of America's approximately 14,000 superintendents off school districts or the principal or headmaster, one of 135,000 schools or is president or chancellor of one of 6000 colleges and help them answer the question of how to reopen schools and colleges safely. Doctor found hope that in your opening statement or answers to questions, you suggest steps. A superintendent Mike Take open school safely, and not only how to keep Children safe. But keep safe. The adults teachers, parents, grandparents, with whom they come in contact Dr Han will there be treatments or medicines this fall that will help speed the recovery from Cove in 19 or reduce the possibility of death. I believe the fear of going back to school or going anywhere these days is in large part because of the fear of severe illness or even death if that risk and be lessened by new treatments. It increased confidence in going back to school. I'd also like to commend Dr Hahn and the work the FDA did to get tests on the market quickly as possible to help understand the spread of the virus. Since then, FDA has worked out which tests have not worked as well as they should and taken steps to remove them from the market. That's what's supposed to happen in the urgency of a pandemic, Admiral draw in our last hearing. You said you expected there to be 40 to 50 million diagnostic test available. Month by September. Is that still true? And exactly how does the school district go about making sure it gets those tests and who pays for them? What are the prospects in the shark tank at the National Institutes of Health that there will be new, reliable and inexpensive tests so we can have even more widespread testing and Dr Redfield, you're continuing to work on updated guidelines about going back to school and college safely. And our CDC employee's going to be available in our states. They'll work with school districts to develop their plans. And what advice do you have about the arrival of the flu season? This fall at the same time as covert 19? This is a lot to discuss. But there will be time during the next 2.5 hours to answer Most of those questions. Let me quickly highlight three areas that have come up in our four earlier hearings this month that I think need clarification. First on contact tracing no doubt. Contact tracing is crucially important. It advised the people who might have been exposed so that people who don't so that they don't intern exposed someone else. According to an NPR report on June 18 states have already hired at least 37,000 contact tracers. State officials and John Hopkins Center for Health Security issue issued a report estimating the need for as many as 100,000 contact tracers, several reports suggested. Congress appropriate money to pay for those tracers. The reality is Congress already has on April 24th Congress appropriated 11 billion, which has been sent to states and tribes for the expenses of testing that legislation explicitly said the money could be used for contact tracing. This is in addition to 755 million from the first emergency appropriations legislation on March 6. That could be Used for contact tracing and that's in addition to the March 27 legislation in which Congress appropriated $150 billion. I mean 1.5 billion in the care Zack for states. Territories and tribes to use for covert preparedness and response. The care. Zack also included the $150 billion to states but a significant amount of that $150 billion has not been spent, even though it is all designated for expenses related to covert 19 which include contact tracing, for example, Tennessee's governor has told me he's reserving as much as a 1,000,000,000 of that so that he could Termine. What flexibility hasn't spending the money. Washington State has not spent much as 1.2 billion Missouri State Treasury says they've not spent about a 1,000,000,000 According to report, my state health officials and Johns Hopkins an average salary for a contact tracer would be a little more than $35,000. This adds up to about 3.5 billion for 100,000 contact tracers. So the point is, Congress has already sent two states plenty of money to hire all the contact tracers that air needed second who pays for the testing. And the cares Act. Congress voted to make off over 19 tests available to patients at no cost. Senate Help Committee Chairman.

"Don't know but I was hoping that I was going to go to the schools website and I was going to read their decision and say okay. This makes sense I was just hoping. I'm a please make it make sense. The university was cutting eleven varsity teams, including men's track and field, and also elevating sailing to Varsity status. Brown President Christina Paxson said the school wanted to make its sports teams more competitive Brown. University is embarking on a bold plan to reshape athletics for student athletes here she is in a video posted to the schools website. This is a strategic initiative to redistribute resources to elevate the excellent Varsity and club sports at Brown. She also said the move quote aligns with our diversity and inclusion efforts expanding opportunities in competitive club sports. Then I got angry then I got mad, because not only were the arguments like nonsensical in my view, but they also were misleading. The way that is being presented makes it seem like club and Varsity or at the same level club teams do not get funding from the university in a major way they. Don't give recruiting spots Russell knew that if men's track and field was no longer a varsity team, there would be even fewer of those coveted recruiting spots for sports often played by people of Color I went on to browse website, and they counted the number. Black guys are on the roster for track and then I looked up baseball crew. Ice Hockey and Lacrosse. Black is on track and field than all of the other sports combine some other sports, and I have a single black person. Some those other sports and I have a single non white person on them. Wrestle connected with Brown track alums. The thought the story deserves national attention. Russell decided to write something up. I'm person without a platform. You know I think. I had four hundred dollars on twitter, one as wonder. Right my ideas out to get him out. Wrestle also thought he could send what he wrote to media outlets in hopes that they'd cover the story themselves, so we got to work I worked like pretty much all day on it.

home here's cal state university chancellor Timothy white speaking on CNBC by the time we get to August and may very well be the case they were able to open more than we think we will be now but we're worried so much about the second wave is going to come in the fall so we're preparing for virtual with the hope of being able to pull back once we get into August and September a little bit many other universities plans to adopt a mixed model of online and in person classes brown university's president Christina Paxson described fall it brown like this to NPR you know I'm imagining something where the large lectures or are captured and students watch them online and then they come together in small discussion groups to talk about the issues to work through problem sets things like that other schools will ask students to come to campus in Schiff's Stanford undergrads will rotate through the school spending two quarters in residence and one quarter remote meanwhile some faculty and staff have pushed back saying they don't feel safe returning to classrooms even ones that are emptier than usual for more on this let's go to the university of Texas Austin which is making plans to re open for its fifty thousand students UT Austin will open its doors this fall but close early students will go home for thanksgiving and stay home joining us now is professor art Markman who heads up planning for the fall semester and sits on the school's central planning committee for the corona virus welcome it's great to be here thanks well so your plan involves opening this fall in closing at thanksgiving do you have in a sense at this point of what open is going to look like so open is going to be not open in the way that campuses are traditionally open we're going to be were our largest classes are four hundred largest classes are gonna be taught online although they may have some sections that meet in person all of our classes that do meet in person are going to be spread out a little bit more so we're gonna hold classes and in larger rooms and and cap our occupancy at forty percent students will be where students and faculty be wearing masks and so it's going to be an on campus experience but not one that's like what we've seen in the past and what about dorms are they going to be a full capacity well the university of Texas is an interesting place a very small all proportion of our students are live on campus so most of our students actually living and housing around the community we do have some housing in dorms and it will not be complete full capacity are smaller rooms that that word sometimes used his doubles will likely be singles in the fall for the protection of the students and we will reconfigure some of the rooms that are larger to to create enough protection for students that that it didn't look out for those situations where we would have doubles and is the idea of closing at thanksgiving that you don't want people going away and then coming back to campus yeah that's right I mean we want to minimize the number of times that we have people go away and come back so obviously everyone's going to descend on the campus in August and and and they will have come from points distant and and we we anticipate that people are going to have to engage in some good social distancing when they arrive but we we generally only have about a week of class after thanksgiving before exams start and so I think the general feeling here particularly in discussions with lots of other universities that are contemplating the same thing is that having everyone go away and then come back for one more week of class just felt like an unnecessary risk so does it make sense then to start earlier so that you don't lose that week of learning yeah that's a great question we would like to have as much time as possible to get ready to implement the fall semester and so we didn't feel like it would be prudent to start early we actually have a little bit of play in our schedule to begin with and so on we can get most of our instructional time in before thanksgiving and then faculty will still be able to present some additional material online in the week after thanksgiving so we we think we can take care of of of creating a good educational experience even if we start at the regular time as you know the cost of college is a huge issue in this country do you think you're going to face any pushback from students and families about essentially paying the same for less well I I don't think we're providing laughs I think again we're we're having you know there will be material it's get the gets presented will be presented in you know online and we as a university have a long history of of really doing good online education we've we've got some prefer TV quality studios that we use both for broadcasting classes synchronously as well as doing things where the classes is recorded in the students watch it later so I think we're providing a really great experience for the students and so we're not really give in the last we're just we're just changing up the modality and our faculty will have plenty of time to prepare for that because we we we've already announced that to them right now according to the Texas Tribune you're planning to conduct some five hundred corona virus tests a day how is that going to be done in who gets tested yeah so there's there's really two kinds of testing that are gonna be done obviously there's going to be the symptomatic testing that's gonna be done by through a medical school and then there's gonna be some some a symptomatic screening that we're going to do and the way that that's going to be done is we're we're coordinating with our student health services and and really trying to test both those folks who might be most on the front lines so that might be staff who are in gauging directly with people some of our student athletes and then in addition to that I will be testing people in a more random fashion just to make sure that we have a a sense of where we are in the community and so right now we look it looks like we'll be somewhere between about five hundred and a thousand tests per day capacity for for that kind of work and what happens if somebody tests positive so like like every other organization where we're going to be engaging in a process of testing tracing and isolation so somebody tests positive then we would we would make sure that they connect with health services to to engage with them we would want them to isolate we also are working on a variety of ways of doing contact tracing so that we can find out who that individual has come into contact with and reach out to those people to get them to isolate in order to see whether they become symptomatic and and if so then turned to for them to go on and get tested are you looking beyond the fall at this point or is that just you're hoping for the best in that you're not gonna have to do this again in the spring you know our expectation is from the beginning that the corona viruses here with us for the foreseeable future and we are planning with the assumption that there won't be either a cure of vaccine widely available until next year probably about a year from now if it happens earlier that's great but we'll put our plan is is to is to assume that what we do in.

Who heads up planning for the fall semester and sits on the schools central, Planning Committee for the Corona Virus Welcome. Great to be here, thanks! Well so your plan involves this fall and then closing at Thanksgiving. Do you have a sense at this point of what open is going to look like? So open is going to be not opened in the way that campuses are traditionally open. We're going to be. Our largest classes are four hundred largest classes are going to be taught online, although then they have some sections that meet in person. All of our classes that do meet in person or going to be spread out a little bit more, so we're going to hold classes in larger rooms and cap our occupancy at forty percent. Students will be where students and faculty will be wearing masks. And so it's going to be an on campus experience, but not one. That's like what we've seen in the past. And what about dorms are they going to be at full capacity well, University of Texas is an interesting place. A very small proportion of our students are live on campus, so our students actually live in in housing around the community we do. Do, have some housing dorms and It will not be complete. Full capacity are smaller rooms that that were sometimes used as doubles will likely be singles in the fall for the protection, the students and we will reconfigure some of the rooms that are larger to to create enough protection for students that include for those situations where we would have doubles. And is the idea of closing at Thanksgiving that you don't want people going away and coming back to campus. Yeah! That's right I mean we want to minimize the number of times that we have people? Go Away and come back so obviously going to descend on the campus in August, and they will have come from points distant, and we. We anticipate that people are going to have to engage in some good social distancing when they arrive, but we generally only have about a week of class after Thanksgiving before exams start, and so I think the general feeling here. particularly in discussions with lots of other universities that are contemplating the same thing as.

I never expected in a million years that the Los Angeles Lakers which. I'm a big fan of the team but I'm not a big fan of the fact that they took four point six million dollar loan. I think that's outrageous and I'm glad they've returned it. The Coronavirus Task Force member explains how federal stimulus efforts are working and not working. How the government will review large loans before granting forgiveness and how this crisis is unlike ones that came before but businesses had nothing to do with this. This was not bad business. Decisions like in the financial crisis is not over levered real estate. The Treasury Secretary says this time around government crisis response should also be different class. Brown University President Christina Paxson on getting back to school this fall students are still learning. It may not be under ideal circumstances but during this pandemic nobody is working under ideal circumstances. It's Tuesday April. Twenty eight twenty twenty squad. Pod Begins Right now. Good morning everybody. Welcome to Squawk box here on CNBC. I'm becky quick along with Joe. Kernan Andrew Ross Sorkin the paycheck protection program or the PC resumed yesterday with a new influx of three hundred ten billion dollars from the federal government. That is intended for small businesses for more on this right. Now let's welcome Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Mister Secretary. Thank you for joining us today. Good morning it's good to be with you. It's good to talk to you. You know I was hoping we can start with a little bit of a dive into how you see this program. What's happened there has been a lot of outrage out? There as people found out that some big companies had applied things. Ruth's Chris Steak House shake shack autonation. Some of their car dealers getting money in this program and there have been some reports in the media about big banks putting those big customers first in line ahead. It's small businesses. I know that you've come out and said that this is really intended for small businesses. That don't have access to the public markets. But I just wondered if you've had a change in your thinking on how this should be used as as this whole situation evolved as the markets kinda firmed up a bit or if this was something that you thought from the very Gecko and you think some of these big companies. Big Banks are are in the wrong and we're bad actors in this situation. What how did this evolve? Let me first say I. I really think the program has been an incredible success. It's impacted over thirty million workers so far and by the time we get through this funding. I think it will have impacted over sixty million workers which as I've said before is about half the private workforce supporting small businesses that was always the president in Congress's intention and that's what we're delivering on. I think it is. It is unfortunate that there's a small number of companies that have created a lot of publicity that took loans. I think it was inappropriate for most of these companies. Take the loans It was clear. There was a certification We don't think they ever should have been allowed to we put out an Faq clarifying the certification in saying that if they paid back the loans in two weeks so that we could reprocess that money they would have no liability otherwise they would have liability. And I I must say I'm encouraged by the number of people that have paid them back. I never expected in a million years that the Los Angeles Lakers which. I'm a big fan of the team but I'm not a big fan of the fact that they took a four point six million dollar loan. I think that's outrageous and I'm glad they've returned it or they would have had liability and let me just say I'm GonNa be putting out an announcement this morning that for any loan over two million dollars the SBA will be doing a full review of that loan before. There is loan forgiveness so we will make sure that what was the intent for tax payers is fulfilled here but let me say again the program overwhelming success a million of the loan so far or for companies under ten people. What do you think the impact has been in terms of trying to keep people employed have? Have there been people who have gone and had to file for employment or do you think that this program has saved a lot of people from actually having to do that has kept them in their workplace. I think it saved a lot of people and I think for those people that are on unemployment. It's going to bring a lot of people back matter of fact we're having a small business event at the White House today. Where unlike the Lakers stories? We're going to hear some stories of great small businesses who this really saved their business and I can tell you you know the number of emails I get from people who send on the stories of a legitimate small business that was about to close their doors that is either keeping their people on her rehiring. People were businesses that had to close their doors because the no fault of their own. The city shutdown business is going to bring back those people so as we reopened these companies will have the liquidity to pay. Their workers occurs to me that not every part of the country is dealing with this equally. There are a lot of states that closed down later than others and they're obviously others that are opening up quite a bit earlier. Are Any of these funds going to be directed to the areas that are most hard hit to try and make sure that the businesses that maybe have been forced to close a couple of months already and could continue to see Along closure would would those businesses be prioritized? What we're absolutely working on that and and we want to make sure that this money is getting to where it should be and let me say. I'm I'm highly encouraged that the average loan size is coming down. Matter of fact the average loan size in the backlog was less than a hundred thousand I'm also encouraged. Were on a call every day where we have over a hundred. Cdfi's that are making loans. We think we're going to increase that to four hundred so particularly in communities that have been hardest hit that we make sure that they get that money and we're going to do what we need to do to make sure that everybody is treated fairly in this program. Mister Secretary what you tell people who say. Look some of these big companies. Maybe should or shouldn't have tried to get this money. But do you blame the banks. The banks that issued these loans to then given the rules that you at spelled out or were the rules themselves not clear enough. The rules were very clear but let me also say the certification was a certification by the borrower. And one of the things we did is we wanted to make it very easy. The banks were really middlemen here and the banks were were not required to do the diligence. I really felt the borrowers who made these certifications. Now there were some banks early on who put things up on their website and prioritize their customers. We immediately told them that was wrong. They took it down so you know I wanted to be very clear. It's the borrowers who who have criminal liability if if they made the certification and it's not true and as I said we're GonNa do a full audit of every loan over two million dollars. This was a program designed for small businesses. It was not a program that was designed for public companies that had liquidity again. The certification was very clear in saying that if people had other sources of liquidity. They could not take this loan. Mister Secretary what do you say about those larger companies that maybe were turning those loans but the true effective it is that they're gonNA continue to furlough employees to the degree that this is an employment for all program shake shack is not necessarily going to now put people back on the on the payrolls whereas had they had access to some of these loans if you felt that they were a properly eligible despite whatever liquidity think they might have they may decide as a business decision not to bring people back whereas a lot of the smaller companies who would have access to this would bring people back knowing that they'd get the loan ultimately forgiven and we keep people in their jobs again? Let me just be clear. The purpose of this program was not social welfare for big business. The purpose of this program was to help small business. That's as small business program and it was meant for small businesses that didn't have liquidity. Now there are a lot.
