Please begin when you

' re all set. > > Thanks'so much, Laura.> Good afternoon, every person. Thanks for having. me on the telephone call today.
I appreciate the opportunity. to present this work.
Zoos supply several benefits. to people and pets.
They supply academic. programs, support preservation, as well as aid us find out even more to. protect endangered types
and also boost biodiversity. Sadly, zoo animals. place ' t escaped the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and also. are amongst the different species reported with SARS-CoV-2. around the world. These images reveal the species.
that have actually been reported until now in 30 countries.
Since November 24th,. public health and wellness as well as pet health authorities.
have actually checked out 317 animal SARS-CoV-2 cases in. the USA, not consisting of mink.
ranch outbreaks. Most of infected.
pets, apart from mink, have been family pet dogs,. mostly felines as well as dogs.Outside of pet cats, canines, and also mink,

zoo pets have been a. distinct human pet interface where
we have seen the best. variety in types contaminated.
On the lower two rows of this. slide you can see jaguars, binturong, hyenas, gorillas,. otters, cougars, tigers, angling cats, lions, snow.
leopards, and also coatis. These cases have actually educated us a.
whole lot concerning the series of species that can be contaminated.
by the infection. Zoos have long been taking.
safety measures to avoid COVID-19, as well as right here you can see an instance.
from the Detroit Zoo'' s web site, which supplies capacity.
visitors info on COVID-19 avoidance when they'' re making a. appointment for their browse through. These COVID-19 mitigation.
methods vary by center as well as the location, relying on.
the neighborhood COVID-19 statutes. In enhancement to the efforts.
to keep site visitors risk-free, zoos are shielding caretakers.
as well as pets, as seen here with a caretaker wearing a.
facemask also while dealing with a lion in an.
outside unit. However individual protective.
equipment protocols and also other mitigation.
policies additionally differ by facility as well as may be influenced.
by regional policies. Some zoos have additionally started.
immunizing pets making use of a pet specific injection.
created by Zoetis.But once again, the vaccination. plans differ by center.
As well as in spite of these. safety measures, we ' re still seeing.'situations in zoo animals. Regretfully, with several rare and.
jeopardized types impacted, as well as it appears like a.
brand-new species weekly. This number reveals the animals.
that have been reported favorable because the beginning of the.
pandemic with the variety of SARS-CoV-2 favorable animals.
reported in the United States on the Y axis and also.
the month reported on the x axis, because.
February 2020. Friend pets, zoo pets, and wild animals types.
are represented. It does not include the.
mink farm break outs. The initial zoo cases were.
recognized in tigers and lions at the Bronx Zoo in April 2020. As well as given that July of this year,.
we'' ve seen a raising trend of SARS-CoV-2 cases.
in zoo animals. You can see the colors begin.
mainly pink and also orange, representing house cats and also.
dogs, as well as after that turns to greens and also blues, standing for large felines and also other zoo animals.
in July 2021. As of November 24th, there have.
been 114 pet situations reported from 32 United States zoos and also other.
captive wild animals facilities in 22 states, and this.
number is growing.So, government

, state,.
and also neighborhood animal health and also public health companions.
have conducted epidemiologic examinations of zoo.
animal instances for more information regarding the features.
and training course of health problem in these pets. An important inquiry addressed.
throughout the examination is whether or not the zoo animal.
situation had a recognized direct exposure to a validated human instance. Fifty-five percent of the zoo.
pet instances thus far had a recognized direct exposure to a human.
confirmed with COVID-19. Of those with a known.
human direct exposure, it was most commonly a caretaker.
in close call with the animal that was identified as.
the source of exposure. The caretaker may have been.
asymptomatic or symptomatic at the time of a contact. There has actually also been evidence of animal-to-animal transmission.
among zoological collections. For those zoo pet cases.
without a known exposure, the possible source may.
have actually been various other personnel who were not recognized,.
a site visitor, potentially an asymptomatic.
zoo pet, or perhaps even wild animals. Up until now there hasn'' t been. evidence of transmission from contaminated zoo. pets to individuals.
So, with the zoo investigation. still continuous and also provided that there are still many. unknowns about the source of exposure, regarding types.
vulnerability to the virus, and the extent of.
disease in these varieties, we'' ve been asking ourselves exactly how.
do we interact making use of a One Wellness approach to ideal secure.
human health and wellness and also pet health and wellness? Just how do we make sure that.
we'' re stopping spillback of the infection from contaminated.
zoo pets to site visitors, personnel, and volunteers? And also just how do we avoid.
zoo pets from obtaining contaminated.
in the initial area? Numerous initiatives are.
underway to intervene.Public wellness, animal health and wellness,.
restricted wildlife facilities, as well as expert organizations,.
such as The Association of Zoos as well as Aquariums, are collaborating.
on outbreak investigations, recognizing danger variables.
and also efficient interventions and also best practices, conducing.
outreach to facilities, and we established the.
COVID-19 Infection Prevention and Control Analysis Device for.
Restricted Wild Animals Facilities, which I will speak about.
in a little bit a lot more detail. This tool is a checklist.
that gives an overview for baseline biosecurity.
actions and also controls that need to be in place.
to avoid transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in between.
pets and also individuals in settings with restricted wildlife, such.
as zoos, shelters, fish tank and also wild animal rehabilitation.
facilities. The device was established based.
on various other infection prevention, control evaluation devices,.
that goal to avoid the spread of infection, and.
particularly COVID-19, in locations where individuals live or.
hang out in close distance, or else called.
gather together settings.It was established utilizing a One. Health technique with input from public health, wild animals. wellness, the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, and also.
reps from the zoos themselves. This tool is indicated to be used.
by the administrators in fee of infection prevention and also.
control at the center, which might consist of job-related.
health, personnels, vet personnel, or.
centers and maintenance. Since reduction.
procedures vary by center and also geographical area, we.
wanted to supply a source to help determine gaps in control.
steps and also attend to those voids with possible enhancement.
tasks. With the objective helpful.
facilities create a split strategy utilizing numerous.
techniques to decrease the spread of illness between people,.
whether they'' re working or seeing the center.
and also animals that are housed at.
these centers. So, the tools consisted of.
of a checklist with seven particular areas.
seen below, and also resources. It'' s available as a fillable PDF as well as may be made use of.
digitally or printed.The sections

be utilized together, which is what we.
recommend, or individually if a facility has.
a specific area that they wish to enhance. This is an instance of the.
list, section one, General Infection.
Avoidance as well as Control. The individual would certainly read the.
series of indeed no doubt and for a lot of the.
preferred answer is indeed, yet if the answer is no,.
after that the answer is specified. The column on the right includes.
ideas as well as resources to enhance the certain.
biosecurity area to aid overview renovation.
activities or the identified gaps. So, for instance, for concern.
one right here, are COVID-19 sign as well as temperature level screening.
systems in location? If the response is.
yes, wonderful, move on. But if the answer is no, the.
user can look at the column on the right, where we'' ve. consisted of pointers to enhance this biosecurity location by applying a.
testing system, and we'' ve provided.
some examples. Area one additionally.
includes concerns on at risk types.
management, consisting of whether the center.
has identified vulnerable pets, which caretakers are.
dealing with those animals, and also if the number of.
caretakers working with those pets is.
being maintained to a minimum. Additionally, it asks if.
caretakers are collaborating with pets in the.
appropriate sequence.Going initially, caring.
for prone pets that are healthy and balanced, and. last caring for pets with professional signs. compatible with SARS-CoV-2.
And this area likewise. includes inquiries about design controls,. such as physical barriers as well as air flow system checks. Area 2 concentrates on. hand hygiene questions, such as access to hand washing. terminals or hand sanitizer as well as if there is suitable.
signs to direct individuals.
to those stations. Area 3 concentrates on.
environmental cleansing and also asks the person to listing.
the products made use of for cleansing and also disinfection.
in the veterinary and animal real estate locations to.
make certain that they'' re EPA authorized for COVID-19 which.
they'' re being used according to the tag directions. Area four: Vaccination as well as.
Examining, inquires about the plans for human and also animal vaccination.
as well as screening protocols. Facilities may require– may.
take into consideration calling for an evidence of unfavorable test outcome and.
or proof of COVID inoculation for those site visitors.
participating in activities where they might have.
closed contact with pets, such as behind the.
scenes experiences.Section 5 focuses and also. team as well as site visitor education as well as it asks if employees. obtain training on which pets are vulnerable as well as the illness prevention. practices in area.
It also asks whether visitors. received comparable info. By providing this information to. both personnel as well as visitors we intend to boost conformity with. mask usage and maintaining a distance from the pets and various other. COVID-19 mitigation protocols.
Area 6 focuses on individual. protective equipment use as well as if there is a respiratory system. defense program in position at the facility for. staff members and volunteers.
Respiratory protection. is particularly vital to
prevent virus transmission as well as centers may consider. updating to fit checked N-95s for those staff members collaborating with. or around at risk animals.Section seven has a couple of. additional questions on other
public health.
control procedures, such as if the facility.
has a process for reporting presumed.
animal situations as well as if there ' s a. versatile authorized leave policy to motivate unwell.
staff members to remain home. The tool consists of sources
. for additional information on every one of the areas included.
in the checklist. There ' s a list of.
federal source pages'.
And a checklist of professional. company resources.
So, what ' s following? These treatment. activities are still continuous. The Association for Zoos and Aquariums is distributing. the tool to members as well as the Zoo and Aquarium All Hazards.
Partnership is organizing a webinar next week for members to find out.
more concerning zoo animal infections with COVID-19, avoidance.
steps, including the list, and to listen to study.
from impacted zoos.We ' ll also proceed.
collaborating on break out investigations, studies to identify.
risk aspects, as well as give technical.
knowledge as needed. This has genuinely been.
a team initiative, of which I play a bit part, so I'' d like to regards.
say thanks to all entailed, consisting of all the zoo personnel.
that aren'' t provided right here by name, however who have actually been complying.
during the epi examinations as well as doing the boots.
on the ground work of applying reduction.
techniques along with their day-to-day animal care.
as well as other responsibilities. And also I'' m satisfied to take.
concerns at the end. Thanks >>. > > Thanks, Dr. Varela. Our next discussion, Inconsistent Nitrogen Dioxide.
drops during COVID-19 lockdowns: Lessons for safeguarding.
near-term public health as well as developing longer-term.
environmental plans is by Dr. Susan Anenberg. Please begin when you'' re all set. >> > > Hello there every person. Good afternoon. Thank you so a lot.
for having me right here. My name'' s Susan Anenberg.I ' m an Affiliate Teacher at the George Washington.
University Milken Institute College of Public Wellness.
as well as I'' ll be speaking today about just how air top quality changed.
during COVID-19 lockdowns as well as what that exposes in.
regards to environmental justice and also public wellness as well as longer-term environmental.
plans. I want to start by.
saying thanks to several of the major contributors.
to this job, a lot of specifically Dr. Dan.
Goldberg and Dr. Gaige Kerr from George Washington.
University. So, I would just want.
to start by discussing why research nitrogen.
dioxide or NO2. You may have come across NO2. It'' s one of the 6 criteria. air toxins regulated by the united state Environmental.
Protection Company and it'' s a tracer. for metropolitan traffic. It'' s a burning. relevant air contamination that is launched whenever.
we'' re igniting fuel.In metropolitan areas it

. really is a significant tracer for web traffic related air. contamination, which suggests that when we research. NO2 it aids us to recognize transportation. emissions and also what that indicates for public health and also exactly how we. might develop ecological policy to reduce the. public health and wellness repercussions of website traffic related
. air pollution. NOx exhausts, which.
is a forerunner to NO2, so NOx emissions and also. nitrogen oxide are forerunners to fine
particle. issue or PM 2.5 as well as ozone, which are
2 extra. requirements air toxins, and really the
leading. factors to the concern of condition from air contamination in the USA. and also around the globe.
So, in order to minimize. PM 2.5 as well as ozone, we have to reduce NOx exhausts, in addition to other air. toxin discharges.
Nitrogen dioxide. itself is related to bronchial asthma development. amongst children.
That is not simply. bronchial asthma exacerbation, although NO2 is also connected with asthma emergency department. sees as well as medical facility admissions
. However NO2 is associated. with brand-new development of asthma amongst kids, as well as. so it ' s a toxin'of concern, specifically for.
pediatric health.In current years
have significant advancements in space-based air high quality.
observations that is satellites that are orbiting the planet and.
taking snapshots of air top quality in between the planet'' s. surface and also the satellite. We can actually use space-based.
NO2 columns that is the amount of NO2 in between the surface of.
the planet and also the satellite, we can in fact use these– usage.
these space-based NO2 columns to comprehend what people on.
the ground are really revealed to due to the fact that these NO2 columns.
are really extremely correlated with ground-level concentration. Therefore below we simply have actually a.
map of New York at the top and Washington D.C.At the.
bottom, as well as our best estimate of NO2 concentration in both of.
these cities, and you can see, you understand, the high–.
very high focus in the largely inhabited.
midtown locations, yet likewise surrounding.
all roadways. We have actually estimated the percent.
of pediatric bronchial asthma occurrence, that'' s again new
situations. of bronchial asthma among kids that can be connected.
to NO2 air pollution in hundreds of cities.
worldwide. I'' m simply revealing here.
the leading 125 cities, the most populated 125 cities. And what we can see right here.
is that the portion of brand-new pediatric bronchial asthma.
instances that are estimated to be attributable to NO2.
contamination varies completely approximately 48%, and also that'' s. in Shanghai.So, what that indicates.
is that virtually fifty percent of brand-new pediatric bronchial asthma situations in.
Shanghai can be attributable to traffic-related.
air contamination. Since fraction is not small.
for various other components of the globe, which you may assume of as.
having better air high quality than Shanghai, so I desire.
to draw your attention to the top right– sorry,.
the leading left panel below where it says high revenue. If you start on the left.
and you begin to review, you'' ll see Los Angeles and. New York City City, and also in these– in these cities concerning 33% of new pediatric bronchial asthma.
cases are attributable to NO2 contamination. In Washington D. C. where I.
online and also where I have 3 youngsters who are growing up as well as creating lungs,.
it'' s about a quarter.
So, a quarter of brand-new. pediatric bronchial asthma cases in Washington D.C. can be characteristic– attributable to traffic-related.
air contamination. Currently, back in February.
and March 2020, my associate Dr. Dan.
Goldberg was simply pouring via satellite.
images and attempting to recognize just how.
urban concentration of nitrogen dioxide.
differ between cities across the United States.
and also all over the world, and also he produced a map that.
appeared like this shortly after COVID began.
and also lockdowns began as well as individuals quit driving as.
much, we saw regarding a 50% decrease in guest automobile website traffic throughout much of the.
United States.And so really we. were completely established in the beginning. of the lockdown to take advantage of the unprecedented. amount of information regarding
air quality that we. have from the new generation of satellites, and also. link that along with the unprecedented
. modification in human activity that we were experiencing. throughout this all-natural experiment of COVID-19 lockdown.
As well as so, he developed. this map where anywhere where you see blue is. where NO2 focus in 2020 were lower. than they were in 2019, as well as we can see much reduced. NO2 concentrations in much
of the major cities. across the United States, including Los Angeles,. Chicago, San Francisco, New York and Washington. As well as we wished to comprehend, you.
understand, at around the very same time as the lockdowns were happening, we were experiencing a. seasonal adjustment, we were going from winter to spring.And at the very same time, a lot of the United States was. in fact experiencing really damp

as well as gusty weather condition. I don ' t recognize if you– if you recall, but. much of the east shore and also really Los Angeles. were experiencing extremely damp as well as gusty weather that was. in fact maintaining air pollution levels low, despite the. anthropogenic emission modifications.So, we would like to know just how
huge would these NO2 goes down be if we normalized out the meter–.
the atmospheric impact, as well as what does this expose regarding environmental justice.
concerns associated with air high quality? We understand from numerous other research studies.
that air pollution remains to be inequitably dispersed.
across the United States and within our city, and also this is.
actually an unprecedented natural experiment that enables us.
a home window to explore that.And we wished to know. just how did differing levels
of city transport adjustments. throughout the lockdown create these NO2 decreases. So, Dan Goldberg produced. several approaches for trying to disentangle the. anthropogenic emission changes that we were experiencing based on individuals staying at home during. lockdowns from the seasonal as well as atmospheric.
effects of all-natural impacts that were keeping contamination. low around the very same time that the lockdowns began.
As well as I won ' t go via this. carefully,'so I simply desire to point
you to the. portion of the slide at the right that ' s. boxed in red.This is the 20 city standard, the typical across

20. North American cities where the Y-axis is. the percent modification in column NO2 observed.
from the satellite. Currently when we simply compare.
2020, the lockdown period versus the earlier part of. 2020, in January and February, we saw about a 40 %decrease in NO2,. generally, throughout the 20 cities as well as we saw those
results being– being communicated. by reporters where there were stories coming out regarding exactly how clear the. Los Angeles horizon were– was as well as how the air was much better.
to take a breath in Washington D.C. But again, that doesn ' t. inform us what part of that NO2 drop was due. to those all-natural changes versus anthropogenic. emission modifications.
Therefore, Dan developed several. methods to disentangle that and also they all came. out around the exact same, typically for these 20 cities. that about fifty percent of the NO2 drop that was experienced,. typically, throughout these 20 cities is. because of atmospheric modification and also regarding fifty percent was due to.
the anthropogenic changes.And so, the anthropogenic–
the anthropogenic modifications were. in charge of regarding a 20% decrease in column NO2 quantities
. during the lockdown duration. Dr. Gaige Kerr, who ' s. a research study scientist at George Washington College, was being employed around. the very same time. We were quite fortunate for'him to. join our team and also start to dig in to demographics tract degree NO2.
concentration and compare that with demographics to understand what. the natural experiment of COVID-19 lockdowns disclosed. about environmental injustice.And so, there ' s a whole lot.
going on in this slide. It was published in. PNAS earlier this year and you can see the paper on the.

right-hand side right here if you desire to find out more, however I. simply wish to tip you through the top row. here where it states all, that is all census tracks.
across the United States and we ' re checking out NO2. column amounts as observed by the TROPOMI satellite sensor. And also we see that when we.
contrast the standard period that is'previous to COVID-19.
with the strong adapter line, we see that the NO2. focus in the least
white demographics. tract across the USA, shown with the. orange dot are nearly– are greater than dual.
the NO2 concentrations in one of the most white demographics.
tracks shown in heaven dots. As well as so that ' s, you recognize
,. once again, not shocking. We understand that these inequities. exist in NO2 focus in between the very least white demographics track. and the most'white census track, but we intended to. understand what took place to those differences during the. COVID-19 lockdowns as well as we see that with the rushed. port line.And so, what we saw was.
that both the orange dots as well as the blue dots shifted to the.
left as well as what that suggests is that satellite NO2 column were. lower during the lockdown, compared to the. standard period, and also they in fact went down more
for the least white. census track contrasted to the most white census track
. So that ' s, you recognize,.
perhaps a good newspaper article, yet it ' s in fact extra.
complex than that because what we found was. that'the NO2 focus in the least white census. track during the lockdown
still exceeded the NO2 concentrations in one of the most white demographics. track before the lockdowns, and also we see that in the. orange dot attached to the rushed port. line being shifted to the right compared with. heaven dot connected to the solid port line. So, what this shows.
is that the variations in NO2 concentration prior.
to the lockdown was so huge, that also regarding a 50 %decrease in passenger automobile web traffic. throughout the lockdown was not nearly enough to erase the disparities.And we see this pattern linger. across every one of the significant cities in the USA and.
it likewise holds for earnings and instructional attainment.

Now we ' re checking into this.
a little more to attempt to comprehend what are the.
vehicle drivers of these NO2 declines and also the different sizes. of NO2 drops that we saw, also after we disentangled. the all-natural influences from the anthropogenic. discharge modifications. And it turns out an actually
. great location to take a look at this is in Europe where the. various nations of Europe have very various. portions of diesel in their
traveler. car market. Right here in the United States, nearly all of our traveler.
vehicles are powered by gasoline, but in.
Europe it can range from simply a few percent of– the gas can range from. regarding a couple of percent market share of the guest vehicle. sector to even more than 50 %. And also it turns out that the.
higher the market share of diesel traveler automobiles. the greater the modification in NO2, the greater the decline in NO2. throughout the COVID-19 lockdown. So, what this informs
us is that diesel lorries. are much more contaminating than fuel vehicles, and. if we were to remove diesel from the traveler car.
market, we would certainly attain declines in NO2 that would certainly be.
wellness beneficial.We are excavating right into this further due to the fact that I assume what the.
COVID-19 natural experiment highlighted for us anyway was that the guest vehicle. segment, which was the sector that was most affected.
by COVID-19 lockdown, since the 50% decrease in passenger cars did. not erase the differences, there is something else. that is additionally contributing to
this consistent. disparity of NO2 air pollution throughout the United States.
We in fact compared the. areas of commercial plants, those electrical power. generating systems, of flight terminals, as well as what we located. is that the– it– it truly is the durable. trucking and also busing segment that appears to be. contributing most constantly across the USA. As well as so, we ' re currently.
digging right into trucking and also buses a little more,
as well as you can see exactly how we. can actually observe this from area. It truly floorings me every.
time I take a look at these pictures, however this is simply 2. photos of the DC location.
On the left-hand side here, we can see high NO2. concentration grabbed by the satellite about. this warehousing location, simply north of Dulles, which ' s due to the fact that the trucking. activity entering into and out of this warehousing
area.And on the right-hand side here. we can see higher NO2 levels along interstate 95, which.
permits vehicles compared to the Baltimore Washington.

Parkway, which bans trucks.
So, we ' ll be excavating right into. this a bit extra and also taking an appearance at the. influence of sturdy trucking throughout the United. States'a lot more constantly.
So, just in conclusion, that satellite-derived NO2.
concentrations are quite valuable for understanding.
the inequitable distribution of air contaminants and also. their health and wellness effects, and also there ' s a number of. various factors for that.
We tend to focus on PM 2.5, which is the dominant. factor to the overall burden of.
condition from air contamination, however in comparison with PM 2.5, NO2 has a much shorter. climatic lifetime, less influence from. local air pollution sources, as well as very sharp gradients. near discharge sources. Furthermore, we have.
the convenient truth that satellite NO2 column.
monitorings are snugly associated with NO2.
observed at ground monitors, as well as this gives an. empirical document of spatial patterns in. urban combustion-related air contamination.
It ' s truly a new opportunity for.
tracking air contamination injustice that was never prior to possible. We have a new satellite. instrument called TEMPO, that is being introduced. by NASA next year, and that
will even more enhance. the environmental justice appropriate satellite. document for NO2.If you ' d like a lot more.
details about this, we wrote a very easily accessible.

paper,'called Leveraging Satellite Information to Address Air Pollution.
Injustices. And keeping that, I will end and also I ' ll look onward. to the discussion. Thank you quite. >'> Thank you.
Our last presentation, Building. >> a Comprehensive Approach in CDC ' s National
Facility. for Environmental Wellness to'Attend to the Wellness.
Results of Climate Adjustment, is by Dr.Erik Svendsen.
Please start when you ' re prepared.

> > Thanks. Can you'hear me, all right? > >> Yes. > > Alright. Well, the influences> of. >> climate adjustment are around and evident every day. This is simply a visuals. which helps us to be able to see the links.
between our transforming climate and also human wellness.
So, if we look at the. facility of the circle, we can see that the. climate is transforming via increasing temperatures. or extreme climate and increasing sea degrees, as well as these. impact further environmental changes rounded. And afterwards, lastly, this impacts. human health, as you can see on
the exterior of this photo. So human health impacts can. variety from direct injuries and also tornados to vector-borne. diseases as well as also respiratory system.
conditions, such as bronchial asthma, which we
simply listened to around. So, if we consider the. environment as well as health and wellness program that we presently contend CDC,. we have actually put with each other given that 2009 to look at exactly how we can help. assistance public health programs across the country via. giving different kinds of funding and support from. our subject professionals, separate to establish and also supply. decision assistance devices to them also as well as help check out the. concerns in their territories as well as to assist cultivate collaborations between public wellness. as well as other sectors.So, you see here, this is the. core of what we have at CDC and also our Climate as well as.

Health Program, which started
a little. greater than 10 years ago.
However as you saw in. that photo earlier, the impacts of environment. actually are a lot larger than simply one disease or. an additional and also it suggests that there really is much going. on across the entire range of public health and wellness that.
demands to be considered. So, while we, in the National.
Facility for Environmental Health and wellness, are focused on these core. public health and wellness programs, as well as we ' re the only program. that ' s presently funded to address'climate modification,. there is pertinent work going on across the entire company, as well as. has actually been for numerous numerous years, that
is associated to this environment and also wellness more comprehensive. spectrum of efforts.So, we created a cross-agency.
taskforce back in March

of this year to start considering.
just how we can coordinate our job throughout CDC far better and to have.
an extra strategic method to dealing with environment.
adjustment as a whole firm. So, this job pressure has actually grown
. to have more than 140 participants from across the whole firm and consists of five. various sub-committees, which have actually been working. with each other because March to
address these issues. and also develop our CDC and also climate health and wellness method. So, we are working. to integrate all of these various activities from throughout the different. fields as well as different components. of the agency. And also these variety from the.
study to monitoring policy
and also collaborations, as. you see in this slide.
So, our climate and health. strategy has actually been gathered and also we ' ve–. we have an initial draft, which we will be releasing. ideally by the end of this
month, and also you see the. mission and vision statements which we created. on the slide.The complete technique will certainly
proceed. to be updated and supplied here in the future,.

as we proceed to take a look at the transforming concerns. that are happening around us. So, currently going back. to our core program, the program within
the nationwide. Facility for Environmental Health, which has actually been funded for. the last a number of years.
So, we also took the initiative. after we saw that climate modification in health and wellness was a substantial. priority within the new management, we looked at how we could construct. it up throughout our whole department and also our entire facility. Therefore, we as a company,.
we have normally been collaborating with our neighborhood jurisdictions,. state, territorial, tribal, public health jurisdictions.
with the strategy that we call the. BRACE framework, the Building Strength Versus. Environment Impacts framework. So, this framework has been.
quite effective as well as impactful throughout the nation and also the photo
to the right shows the. various actions that we utilize to help neighborhood territories. to plan for as well as adjust to the changing climate. around them and also safeguarding public.
health and wellness via it. So, past that, we.
wished to look at and see what else can
we do. within the Environmental Health to be able to address this.
detailed difficulty that we have to us. in public health and wellness? And so, we began our own. internal strategic preparation
back in very early 2020, and after that.
that completed previously in the year this year,.
before we started the whole CDC-wide initiative.And so
, where we landed was. we truly required to concentrate on 3 various locations in how.
we were going to be increasing out our program as well as those.
3 locations are data, scientific research, as well as activity. And also within that,.
as was recognized in the new administration,.
however implicit within the work that we have actually been providing for. years, we really needed to weave in environmental justice. as well as health and wellness equity, but not simply weave it in. like we normally have, yet to advance it, elevate it,.
and also to prioritize it as it needs to be, as you just heard.
from Dr.Anenberg as well.
It ' s a massive problem.
in various locations of environmental health. And afterwards we check out all the.
different bars that we can make use of to advance this job,.
whether it be policy, communications, or evaluation. So, I'' m going to show you
. 3 examples of these in the next couple of slides. The initial one is a data.
example, so the CDC'' s Heat as well as Wellness Tracker, which is.
shown here, is a collaboration in between the Climate and Health and wellness.
Program, in the National Center for Environmental Wellness, and the National Environmental.
Public Wellness Tracking Program, likewise within the National Facility.
for Environmental Health- so this online system.
is intended to aid wellness divisions.
as well as territories prepare for extreme heat events, like.
the extraordinary heating events that we saw this previous summertime.
in the Pacific Northwest.So, this includes.
syndromic surveillance data on warm associated. hospitalizations, a monthly heat projection. that CDC has created with the
National Oceanic as well as. Atmospheric Administration, county-level social. vulnerability index sign data, and also resources that. can be utilized to prepare for and also reply to heatwaves. Another instance is. a science instance. So, the CDC ' s National Center for Emerging Zoonotic Contagious. Illness is studying the influence of temperature in.
precipitation on the expansion of various tick varieties. and the potential influence on vector-borne disease. So, using a One Health and wellness strategy, this research study entails. cross-agency collaboration, consisting of partnership with. our program, as well as is assisting to notify the nationwide. vector-borne illness technique. Alright, and afterwards lastly, the last example is. an activity example. So, CDC funds cities
, tribes,. territories to plan for and react to wellness. influences of environment modification.
This is with what we call. the Climate-Ready States and Cities Initiative and. the Climate-Ready Tribes and also Territories Campaign. So, all of the present and. formerly funded territories– jurisdictions– I. can ' t talk today,'territories are shown right here. So, 11 brand-new cooperative.
agreements were awarded simply lately in October.
of this year, as well as those are shown in blue.Of program, like any program, we. would like to broaden
the job that we do to the entire country. We would certainly love to. see if we have an increasing number of climate-ready cities.
as well as specifies throughout the nation. To make sure that is our desire.
yet we'' re not there yet. So, but this is our last. instance, an action instance of how we'' re taking our. scientific research as well as taking our information and putting it out in the field to assist safeguard the.
public'' s wellness. Alright, with that said, I.
think we can proceed as well as carry on to concerns. So, thanks significantly. >> > > Thanks.
Thanks to all of. today ' s speakers for your useful.
presentations. Links to sources from each.
presentation are available on our web site on onehealth/.
zohu/2021/ december.html. We do have time for.
some questions. As a pointer, please usage.
the Q as well as An attribute in Zoom to send your inquiries and please consist of the.
presenter'' s name or topic. So, our first concern.
is for Dr. Varela.This individual wonders regarding.
exactly how the direct exposures happened in the zoo animal situations. Were zoos on lockdown throughout any type of.
time throughout COVID in the U.S. and also was this transmission.
extra zoo staff to zoo animals or from visitors? >> > > Thank you. Thanks for the concern. So, currently,.
we, like you stated, 55 % of the cases. have been linked with an infected caretaker. and some of the activities that the caretakers were. participated in would be something like feeding, providing.
medications, things that brought the animals into close contact.
with the caretaker. Up until now, we have actually not been able.
to determine any organizations in between site visitors as well as infections.
in animals in these zoos, however examinations.
are still ongoing. It could be a little.
bit challenging to be able to get that info. Individuals, you understand– individuals.
come and go and we put on'' t have, you know, checking. protocols for visitors in position at these facilities.And to answer your. 2nd inquiry, yes, many zoos were secured down. during most of the pandemic and, you know, just began. reopening when points began to obtain a bit. better last summertime. And, you recognize, they ' ve. been various zoos– several zoos have been carrying out.
various sorts of reduction techniques. And also I put on'' t understand a lot more. to that question. I wish I addressed every one of that. Thanks. > > Thank you.
Our following question is. again for Dr. Varela. Do you recognize what the casualty. price of SARS-CoV-2 has remained in wild animals, if.
there is a fatality price? >> > > Yeah, many of the zoo.
animals that are vulnerable to SARS-CoV-2 are.
jeopardized species, as well as some have ended up being seriously.
ill as a result of infection. Luckily the huge.
bulk of all pets that came to be infected have.
just light scientific signs as well as have actually made a full recovery. There have actually been unusual reports.
of zoo animals contaminated with SARS-CoV-2 that have actually passed away,.
but examinations are recurring and the reason of fatality.
and the payment of SARS-CoV-2 is still.
being determined.We ' ve really
established a. common investigation procedure for departed animals that. declared for SARS-CoV-2
that was evaluated in. friend animals and also the same method. is being made use of for more information regarding zoo pets. Thanks. > > Thank you. Our following question. is for Dr. Svendsen. Exist activities that. any kind of cities are requiring to respond to the effects of. environment modification with CDC assistance, as well as if so, might you. give an instance? > > Oh yes, there are several.
various interventions which are occurring all.
throughout the country. As well as the treatments that.
are being taken into area in the different.
cities as well as territories across the country are
. dependent on the threats that they deal with in. their cities. I ' ll just give you. one simple example that would be somewhat. implied for some of you
. So, the city of Phoenix. is warm as it is; it'' s always been a warm city,.
but it'' s been obtaining hotter, like a lot of various other cities.And so, via the job that. we ' ve been aiding to support, they ' ve been able to assist expand'. cooling down centers across the city so that homeless individuals. and also individuals who go to danger who put on ' t
have access. to enough cooling at'their home have the ability to. can be found in as well as cool off in a safe and protected location to aid. safeguard the effects of heat on the public there.
So that ' s one example,. and there are much more.
However I will, given the moment, I. will leave it at that in the meantime. > > Thanks. >> An additional concern for Dr. Varela. Are mandating masks at.
the zoo for caretakers, is that to aid protect.
the pets or what is the objective of that. Thanks. >> > > Yeah, so, yes, we understand. that making use of masks assists to– you understand, it'' s a resource.
control, so it is being utilized to assist protect against any type of infection.
that could be transmitted in between the caretakers.
and the animals.So, for those facilities. that are recommending or mandating them for. their caretakers, yes.
A method to protect the animals,. and additionally the people, you know, from spreading the infection.
between each various other. Thanks. >> > > Thanks. And a concern for Dr. Anenberg. What was one of the most.
unexpected change in satellite observed.
NO2 during the pandemic? >> > > Yeah, thanks.
for that question. I believe, to be quite honest, the.
most surprising observed result that we saw was the.
differences, which'' s not since I was shocked.
that there are variations, I was just really stunned that space-based.
tools are capable of getting those disparities.It ' s simply still truly. unbelievable to me that we have these points. taking a trip around the earth as well as they can see road. degree air pollution as well as how pollution differs. at the community scale. To make sure that has actually resulted in us
. forming a NASA Health and wellness and Air High Quality Applied. Science team, or HAQAS tiger team satellite.
information for ecological justice as well as just how we can link
these. satellite information to EJ, ecological justice,.
mapping devices and aid track and also address these injustices. > > Thank you. We have an additional inquiry. for Dr. Varela. >> Exist instance control research studies.
being carried out for danger variables in zoo pets in. COVID-19 situations? > > Yeah, so there are a few.
various jobs going on today that are studies to. take a look at the various techniques at numerous various zoos, not necessarily a. case-controlled research study, as for I know, but I do assume.
that would be extremely beneficial if we were to do that. So, hopefully there will.
be more researching coming out in the future. >> > > Thank you, and also after that an additional.
question for Dr. Svendsen. Is the Environment Modification.
Interagency Team arranged under the White Home'' s Global. Modification Research Study Program? >> >'> I ' ll try to clarify.
that briefly, given we wear'' t have a great deal of. time, but we'' re a federal firm and also we function under a.
framework sort of strategy under Health and wellness as well as Human Services.And so, our first
program. that we ' ve had at CDC is within the National Center. for Environmental Wellness
, it ' s been funded for. the last 12 years.
Now we ' re checking out expanding. it throughout the entire firm, so creating a CDC-wide plan. as well as eventually with the hopes of having broader CDC financing. throughout the entire range of the strategy, so
that we can. have a CDC-wide initiative.So that is being worked with.

under Health And Wellness and Human Solutions.
There ' s a brand-new workplace,. Workplace of Environment and Wellness and also Health Equity; I.
guess they call it OCCHE.And also so, it'' s up
at the HHS Workplace. As well as so those are the ones that are mainly functioning above us in the interagency sorts of collaboratives that was stated there, however reps of our program which are up at HHS. I hope that assisted. >> > > Thanks. If you have other questions for today'' s speakers we
' ve. included their e-mail addresses on this slide, on the ZOHU Phone call.
webpage for today'' s webinar, and in today ' s email newsletter. A video of today'' s webinar. will certainly be posted within one month. Please join us for the following.
ZOHU contact February 2, 2022.

A reminder that we do not have.
an employ January, and also thank you for your engagement. This ends today'' s webinar.
