States grapple with plans for end to coronavirus public health emergency

“The issue and the challenge is that CMS, I am sure, doesn’t want to send states a signal that the public health emergency is ending, given where we are. But on the other hand, states feel like they need some indications of what to do and when to do it,” said Allison Orris, counsel with Manatt Health and a former federal health policy official. “I think that there’s an understandable question from the HHS perspective of when do we say that for states and we don’t want to freak out states right now.”

A CMS spokesperson pointed to existing guidance to states saying that the enhanced federal funding for Medicaid — of 6.2 percentage points being added to states’ Federal Medical Assistance Percentage rates — will stop at the end of the quarter when the public health emergency ends.

The spokesperson said it’s too early to speculate on potential status

Cal/OSHA’s Emergency Mandatory COVID-19 PTO Provision

On November 19, 2020, the California Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board, the standards-setting agency of the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA), adopted an emergency standard regarding COVID-19 workplace prevention. The Standards Board submitted the new final rule to the Office of Administrative Law, which may approve the rule within as few as 10 days. This means employers may have to comply with the emergency standard as soon as Monday, November 30, 2020.

The emergency standard imposes a number of new requirements on California employers. These requirements include preparing a “written COVID-19 Prevention Program,” notifying employees and third parties of potential COVID-19 exposure, providing face coverings, and offering to test and/or testing employees for COVID-19 in certain situations.

In addition, in proposing the final rule, Cal/OSHA exercised authority employers generally associate with the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement. As explained more fully

A supporter of President Trump protests the election results in Philadelphia, Penn., November 8, 2020.

The emergency petition, filed in state court, takes issue with a voting reform bill that passed Pennsylvania’s Republican-held legislature in October last year. The lawsuit claims that the law’s allowance of  no excuse mail-in voting is “unconstitutional” and seeks to block Pennsylvania counties from certifying their vote results ahead of the deadline on Monday to do so and invalidate millions of mail-in ballots cast in the 2020 election.

The group is led by Pennsylvania Representative Mike Kelly and GOP congressional candidate Sean Parnell, who has not conceded since his defeat this month by his Democratic rival, Representative Conor

COVID-19: Labour spokesman calls anti-vax content ‘garbage’ after demand for emergency social media law | Politics News

Anti-vaccination content on social media is “poison” and “garbage” and should be “stamped-out”, Labour has said.

With hopes rising of a COVID-19 jab being rolled out by the end of the year, the opposition has called for emergency legislation to remove “dangerous anti-vax content”, such as posts against the use of vaccines.

The party wants the government to bring forward laws that would include financial and criminal penalties for companies that fail to act against such content.

Shadow health secretary Jonathan Ashworth told Sky News’ Sophy Ridge on Sunday that “dangerous nonsense” is being spread on social media by people who are against inoculations and it “erodes trust” in vaccines.

There is “poison, garbage (and) conspiracy theories” online and “it’s all nonsense”, he added.

Mr Ashworth said Labour wanted to work with the government to tackle the issue.

He is calling for “strong public health messaging” because people will have

Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel was recovering from emergency surgery Tuesday night for bleeding to the brain.

Adel was hospitalized in serious but stable condition, according to Jennifer Liewer, spokesperson for the office. 

Before she was taken to the hospital, The Republic was told the county attorney was at home waiting for the first round of election results. Adel, a Republican, and Democrat Julie Gunnigle are vying to become the first woman elected county attorney. The race between the candidates is close. Adel now holds a slim lead in the race as ballots continue to be counted.

Operations at the office are running as normal, according to Liewer. Ken Vick, chief deputy, is continuing his normal role as Adel’s second in command. 

“Staff have been kept informed and are leaning on each other for support,” she said.

Amistad: every ballot must be counted and voters must have fair and equitable treatment

AMHERST, Va., Nov. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Today, voters in four battleground states went to court with emergency filings to challenge the management and monitoring of unattended ballot drop-boxes that pose a serious threat to properly cast ballots via the comingling of proper ballots with improperly cast ballots.

Since most ballot drop-boxes are unattended, and there have been no official protocols for the management of the ballots from these boxes immediately after the polls close, these voters in Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin are requesting the courts provide immediate access to security camera video footage for each drop-box in these battleground states. “Transparency is a key to honest and

State of emergency lifted after days of rallies

Pro-Democracy protests continue across Thailand
Mass gatherings have rocked the capital Bangkok

Thailand has revoked an emergency decree it imposed a week ago as it tried to end months of protests against the prime minister and the monarchy.

An official statement said the “violent situation” that had led to the decree had eased.

The measures, which banned gatherings of more than four people and imposed a curfew, prompted even larger rallies.

On Wednesday protesters gave PM Prayuth Chan-ocha three days to step down or face more demonstrations.

In response, Mr Prayuth signalled he would lift the decree but asked protesters to reciprocate by toning down their “hateful and divisive talk”.

The student-led movement is demanding the resignation of Mr Prayuth, a former general who seized power in a 2014 coup and last year became prime minister after a controversial vote.

They want a new election, amendments to the constitution and an end to the harassment
