COVID-19 Camp Safety Protocols
Asolo Rep Education & Engagement is committed to the safety and well-being of all of our students, families, teaching artists, and staff. We have worked hard to put in place specific measures that will ensure that our camp and class experience is safe, comfortable, and fun for everyone.
Please note: the information about and the response to the COVID-19 pandemic is constantly changing and this policy may be revised at any time based on the overall situation, and/or changes in federal, state, and/or local laws. We will update parents, students, and families on any updates as they happen.
Below are some brief highlights from our safety plan. To access our entire COVID-19 Safety Policies & Procedures, click here.
All camp participants will be required to abide by our COVID-19 Safety Policies and Procedures and sign and return a COVID-19 Policy, Waiver and Release as part of registration.
Cloth or disposable masks must be worn over the nose and mouth at all times with the exception of lunch/snack times and specific "mask breaks."
Students will have their temperature checked upon entering the building and are required to complete a self-assessment before coming to every class.
No other individuals will be allowed in the part of the building where camps are being held except for Asolo Rep Education & Engagement staff, Teaching Artists, and campers.
All in-person class sizes are reduced to allow for social distancing (6 ft.) within each space. Camp activities have been modified to comply with physical distancing guidelines.
Snack and lunch breaks will be taken outside where students must social distance and stay 6-feet apart.
Necessary supplies (like art and craft supplies, scripts, etc.) will remain unique to each student and will be kept on-premises until the camp week is through.
Sanitization Stations with tissues, hand sanitizer, disinfectant spray, and disinfecting wipes will be available at all times. Asolo Rep Education will use disinfectant and cleaning products to clean high-touch surfaces frequently throughout the day.
In the event that we do not feel safe to carry out in-person camps, sessions will be moved to an online platform.
If a Camper Exhibits Symptoms
If a student becomes ill during the day, that student will be moved to an isolated space and will remain under adult supervision until they can be picked up. Students must be tested in order to potentially return.
- If NEGATIVE: Students will be permitted back to camp if symptoms have subsided and a negative test is produced.
- If POSITIVE: If a camper tests positive, campers and associated camp staff will be considered "closer contact" and camp will be transferred to a virtual format. Campers who test positive cannot return to in-person activities until 10 days have passed after their positive test result and their symptoms have subsided. For classmates of the positively-testing camper, if registered for subsequent weeks, a negative test must be produced.
If a Household Member Exhibits Symptoms
If a family or household member of a camper exhibits symptoms and is being tested, the camper must not attend camp. The camper must be quarantined until the results of the family of household member returns.
- If NEGATIVE: Students will be permitted back to camp.
- If POSITIVE: If a family or household member receives a positive test result, the camper is now considered a "close contact" and must quarantine for 10 days. The camper must be symptom-free and receive a negative test result before returning to camp.
