    • All camp and facility staff must clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces on an hourly basis.

Physical Distancing Protocols:

    • All sessions will have enhanced social distancing measures and will be held outside whenever feasible.
    • All sessions should provide appropriate arrival and drop off times and limit direct contact with parents, guardians, or
      family members as much as possible.
    • All sessions will ensure adequate supplies for the number of children in each group to minimize sharing of high-touch
      materials to the extent possible.

Staffing Protocols:

    • When feasible cloth face coverings must be worn by all employees. 
    • Camp staff must supervise young children when using hand sanitizer.
    • Camp or facility staff must communicate to parents or guardians the importance of keeping children home when they
      are sick.
    • Camp or facility staff must screen every child daily upon arrival.
    • Camp or facility staff must teach and model social distancing, creating space, and avoiding unnecessary touching, in
      an age-appropriate manner.
    • Camp or facility must conduct staff pre-shift screenings and maintain staff screening log.
    • No staff displaying symptoms of COVID-19 will provide services to children. Symptomatic or ill staff may not report to
      work.
    • No staff member may report to work site within 72 hours of exhibiting a fever.
    • If an active staff member is identified as being COVID-19 positive by testing, CDC cleaning and disinfecting must be performed as soon as the confirmation of a positive test as practical. • All camps must have a copy of this mitigation plan.
