Illinois emergency rule requires hospitals, health care facilities to track staff vaccination records, test results

Illinois emergency rule requires hospitals, health care facilities to track staff vaccination records, test results

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (NEXSTAR) — All hospitals and health care facilities in Illinois must begin keeping records that monitor vaccination status and Coronavirus test results for all of their staff, according to a new emergency rule issued by the state on Friday.

The Illinois Department of Public Health quietly filed the emergency rules with the Secretary of State’s office at the close of the first week under Governor Pritzker’s new vaccine mandate for health care workers. Pritzker’s mandate would require all workers at health care facilities and schools to be fully vaccinated or submit to weekly testing. The new reporting and record-keeping rules apply to hospitals, assisted living centers, skilled nursing facilities, sheltered care facilities, veterans homes, and a variety of other health care facilities licensed with the state, and go into effect immediately.

“Each establishment shall maintain a record of fully vaccinated staff, unvaccinated staff, and weekly testing,” the rules say, though they offer no specific instructions on how facilities should report that information to the state.

“The emergency rule is silent on how they are going to collect,” Danny Chun with the Illinois Health and Hospital Association said in a phone call on Monday. “You can’t just turn on a light switch and start a new reporting system ‘effective immediately.’”

The new emergency rules don’t appear to allow any room for unvaccinated health care workers to decline a Coronavirus test.

“Staff who are not fully vaccinated may be permitted to enter or work at the establishment while they are waiting to receive the results of their weekly test,” the rules say. Otherwise, the state rules mandate that any workers who refuse the vaccine for religious or medical reasons “shall undergo the testing requirements.”

The Illinois Health Care Right of Conscience Act says, “It is the public policy of the State of Illinois to respect and protect the right of conscience of all persons who refuse to obtain, receive or accept…health care services and medical care…and to prohibit all forms of discrimination, disqualification, coercion, disability or imposition of liability upon such persons or entities by reason of their refusing to act contrary to their conscience or conscientious convictions in providing, paying for, or refusing to obtain, receive, accept, deliver, pay for, or arrange for the payment of health care services and medical care.”

When asked last week if his new executive orders mandating vaccines and tests clashed with state law, Pritzker dodged the legal question, and shifted the focus to public safety.

“What we put in place is something that is workable, something that the vast majority of people are going to be following,” Pritzker responded. “I know that there are people who are attempting to challenge these things in court. I would just say that this is a very unhelpful thing to do, and it is going to make schools and healthcare settings less safe.”

New medical research released by the CDC earlier this month showed unvaccinated people were 10 times more likely to be hospitalized and 11 times more likely to die from COVID-19 than people who were fully vaccinated.

Facebook puts Instagram for kids on hold after pushback

Facebook puts Instagram for kids on hold after pushback

Facebook is putting a hold on the development of a kids’ version of Instagram, geared toward children under 13, to address concerns that have been raised about the vulnerability of younger users.

“I still firmly believe that it’s a good thing to build a version of Instagram that’s designed to be safe for tweens, but we want to take the time to talk to parents and researchers and safety experts and get to more consensus about how to move forward,” said Adam Mosseri, the head of Instagram, in an interview Monday on NBC’s “Today” show.

The announcement follows an investigative series by The Wall Street Journal which reported that Facebook was aware that the use of Instagram by some teenage girls led to mental health issues and anxiety.

Yet the development of Instagram for a younger audience was met with broader opposition almost immediately.

Facebook announced the development of an Instagram Kids app in March, saying at the time that it was “exploring a parent-controlled experience.” Two months later, a bipartisan group of 44 attorneys general wrote to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, urging him to abandon the project, citing the well being of children.

They cited increased cyberbullying, possible vulnerability to online predators, and what they called Facebook’s “checkered record” in protecting children on its platforms. Facebook faced similar criticism in 2017 when it launched the Messenger Kids app, touted as a way for children to chat with family members and friends approved by parents.

Josh Golin, executive director of children’s digital advocacy group Fairplay, urged the company Monday to permanently pull the plug on the app. So did a group of Democratic members of Congress.

“Facebook is heeding our calls to stop plowing ahead with plans to launch a version of Instagram for kids,” tweeted Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey. “But a ‘pause’ is insufficient. Facebook must completely abandon this project.”

Haunted house actor accidentally stabs boy he was trying to scare, police say

BEREA, Ohio (WJW)– An actor at an Ohio haunted house accidentally stabbed an 11-year-old boy on Saturday, police said. Officers were called to the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds in Berea shortly after 8 p.m.

The boy arrived at the haunted house and was approached by one of the actors who was carrying a large bowie knife. The police report said the 22-year-old man scraped the knife along the ground in the front of the group and then stabbed at the ground near the boy’s feet to scare him.

The knife went through the child’s Croc-style shoe and cut his toe. Staff and officers treated his injury, then the boy put his shoe back on and insisted on finishing the haunted house.

Police said the actor admitted that using the knife was a bad idea. He said he didn’t intend to hurt anyone.

Officers confiscated the knife, and the boy’s mother requested no criminal charges.

Great Barrington school staff member accused of raping student

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. (WWLP) – A staff member of a Great Barrington school that offers special education services to children has been accused of forcefully raping a student.

A Berkshire County District Attorney’s Office spokesperson identified the staff member as Douglas Agyeh. He was arraigned on September 16 in Southern Berkshire District Court on single counts of rape of a child with force, and rape of a child aggravated by a 10 year age difference.

In a statement to NEWS10’s sister station, 22News, Hillcrest Educational Centers, Inc., the organization that runs the Great Barrington school, said the alleged sexual abuse has been reported to local and state authorities.

“We were shocked and outraged when we recently learned of the alleged sexual abuse of a student by a staff member at one of our residential schools in Great Barrington,” they stated.

Services the school provides include individualized and comprehensive clinical, psychological and special education services for children, adolescents, and families in Berkshire County, and the Northeast. They also offer nonresidential and residential options and are state-licensed, certified, and accredited.

Hillcrest is committed to preventing any kind of abuse to our students and meets or exceeds licensing and accreditation standards for training staff and reporting suspected abuse or neglect. After reviewing surveillance video, which we collect specifically to deter and detect inappropriate behavior, we reported the suspected abuse. Hillcrest is cooperating in full with the investigations. Hillcrest leaders will be reviewing all related policies, training, and procedures going forward to ensure we are doing everything we can to prevent any future incidents of abuse.”

GERARD E. BURKE, PRESIDENT/CEO, HILLCREST EDUCATIONAL CENTERS, INC.

Charter school, innovation zone employees can’t get elected to Denver school board

Charter school, innovation zone employees can’t get elected to Denver school board

The Denver school board expanded its conflict-of-interest policy Thursday to ban employees of independent charter schools and semi-autonomous innovation zones from serving on the board.

The policy already barred district employees from being board members. But it didn’t account for employees at independently run charter schools, or employees of the nonprofit organizations that oversee innovation zones. The zones are groups of district-run schools granted waivers from certain district and state rules.

The school board has the power to authorize charter schools and innovation zones, and also to decide whether or not to renew them every few years.

The current seven-member school board passed the policy change unanimously and without public discussion. The timing is notable: the next school board election is Nov. 2, and four of the 13 candidates were affiliated with the district professionally last school year.
