Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new virus that causes respiratory illness in people and can spread from person to person. The virus that causes COVID-19 originated in Wuhan, Hubel Province China. It is being closely monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
- Shortness of breath
Having these symptoms alone does not mean that someone has the virus. Symptoms may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days after exposure. According to the CDC, preventive measures for the COVID-19 are similar to other respiratory viruses such as the flu.
COVID-19 is spread between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) through coughing and sneezing. The virus also may be transmitted by touching an object or surface with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes before washing your hands. There is currently no vaccine to protect against COVID-19.
- Wash hands with soap and water frequently, for at least 20 seconds
- Use alcohol-based sanitizers when soap and water are not available
- Use disposable tissues when coughing and sneezing; dispose of carefully and promptly
- If tissues are not available, direct your cough or sneeze into the crook of your arm/sleeve
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
- Clean and disinfect “high-touch” objects and surfaces
- Stay home when you are sick, and remain home until fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication
- Avoid close contact with anyone who has cold or flu-like symptoms
- Maintain healthy habits that support your immune system
- Asking that children and employees who have symptoms of respiratory illness stay home and not come to school until they are free of fever (100.4° F or 37.8° C, signs of a fever, and any other symptoms for at least 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing medicine (i.e. Tylenol, Motrin)
- Scheduling regular times throughout the day for children to clean their hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer or wash their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Reminding students about how to stop the spread of germs!
- Daily cleaning of all frequently touched surfaces at camp, such as desks, tables, and doorknobs and providing disposable wipes so that commonly used surfaces can be wiped down before each use.
- Counselors using commercial grade disinfectants on lunchroom tables and surfaces after each lunch rotation.
- Cautioning staff and families regarding travel plans: please follow CDC safety guidelines and be aware of CDC travel notices Important Reminder: If traveling to any countries with Level 3 Travel Health Notices, Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance calls for staying home for 14 days from the time you left an area with widespread, ongoing community spread (Level 3 Travel Health Notice countries) and practice social distancing.
We have adjusted our refund policy during this time to help provide peace of mind when registering for the summer. While our policy is that all deposits are non-refundable, if you are unable to attend camp because your child or you have contracted Coronavirus or if camp is closed due to the virus, we will credit your account or refund you for any payments made beyond those deposits. We ask that you let us know ten days prior to each camp session attending in order to receive the refund or credit.
