COVID-19 PREVENTION PLAN
To ensure the safety of our community during a pandemic The Summer Camp will follow all CDC, State, and Local Board of Health guidelines. For the 2021 summer camp season the following highlighted modifications will be in place.
- Campers and Staff Screening – Parents must complete a daily online attestation (to be completed by 8:00am) at this address – https://www.brooklinetennis.com/covid-19-screening/. Health check responses are recorded and maintained on file. A YES to any of the included questions may result in the staff or camper seeking additional evaluation/testing and the inability to attend camp until it is determined safe to do so. In addition, through-out the day, campers and staff will continue to be monitored for symptoms of illness.
- Camper Groups – Small, non mixing, cohorts. Campers and staff will be placed in small cohorts of 10 campers with head counselor and assistant counselor if needed based on age of campers. 10:1 for campers seven years plus and 5:1 campers six years and under.
- Disinfecting of physical spaces and equipment: Designated staff will be responsible for regularly cleaning through-out the day of high contact surface areas. All campers will be required to bring their own equipment and no demo racquets will be allowed and no shared equipment allowed.
- Outdoors – All tennis activity will take place outdoors unless raining.
- Face masks – Campers and staff should bring one mask per day, Masks will be worn upon arrival and departure to camp, unless CDC advises otherwise. Masks will still be encouraged for campers under the age of 12 if desired, we will maintain proper social distancing outdoors to minimize risk. We are supportive of campers and staff who choose to wear masks. Extra gloves and masks will be available in each cohort, with the nurse and the both first aid kits.
- Indoors – We will only be indoors when raining and will be at the gordon field house, the size of three full size basketball courts. All campers and staff will be required to wear masks while indoors until further notice.
Staff will open all windows , keep air conditioning on and run all filtration systems.
- Handwashing – Campers and staff will be encouraged to wash and/or use hand sanitizer frequently throughout the day. Reminder signs will be posted around campus.
- Staff Training – Staff will be oriented on how to support and maintain proper procedures for hand hygiene, maintaining physical distancing, recognizing symptoms of illness, proper use of sanitizers and disinfectants.
- Signs – Signs will be posted to encourage one way traffic, social distancing, and frequent hand washing.
COVID-19 RESPONSE PLAN
Identifying and Evaluating an individual (camper and/or staff person) who show signs of COVID-19 symptoms
- In the event an individual feels ill or shows symptoms of illness they will be brought to the Camp Nurse for further evaluation; a designated isolation room will be made available if needed.
- The Nurse will contact the symptomatic individual’s parents or emergency contact to arrange for pick up. Siblings of a symptomatic person may also need further evaluation.
- In the event any person has been confirmed with COVID-19, the individual may not return to camp without a negative test, be symptom free, and receive a medical clearance from their physician. Additionally, others identified as a close contact, will be notified of possible exposure and advised on quarantine timelines and returning requirements.
- Individuals who have been identified as a close contact to COVID-19, outside of camp or in their household, will also be required to follow current state guidelines and to self quarantine.
- The Local Health Department will be notified of any confirmed COVID-19 cases at camp. The camp will follow all CDC steps with regards to classroom closures and disinfecting procedures.
- Information, as needed, will be communicated to parents. No personal information will be shared.
- The camp has support staff available to cover for a staff member needing to be out and/or to quarantine.
