2022 Summer Program Participant Covid-19 Policies, last updated June 22, 2022
Carnation Farms is bringing back our Summer Camp programs. To ensure the health and safety of participants, staff, and volunteers we have implemented the following Covid-19 safety protocols. Our protocols and procedures are based on the current information provided by the King County Department of Health, Washington State Department of Health and the CDC’s guidance. We will keep you updated on any changes.
Drop off/ Daily Check in:
During check in parents will be asked to complete a daily sign-in which will include acknowledging their child has been assessed for potential symptoms.
Participants will also have a temperature check (using a forehead thermometer) upon arrival. If your child has a fever (temperature of 100.4 F or higher) they will be asked to stay home.
Staff members will be alert for symptoms, including:
- Fever, cough or shortness of breath, or other symptoms of Covid-19
- Staff will check temperature using a forehead thermometer if symptoms develop.
If a program participant is suspected of having Covid-19 symptoms they will be isolated immediately, a mask or face covering will be applied (if not already), and parents will be called to pick up their child and pursue medical assessment and testing.
Participants are asked to bring a snack & lunch and a water bottle labeled with their name.
Masks/ Facial Coverings:
Masks are not required indoors/outdoors. Participants and volunteers are welcome to wear masks based on their personal comfort level. We will have masks available.
For the protection of other campers and staff members, If your child develops Covid symptoms they may be asked to wear a mask if inside our indoor isolation area or if they have been identified as a close contact of someone who has tested positive.
Please let us know if your camper has any restrictions around mask usage.
Staying home if sick and/or possible exposure:
We require that if your child (or member of your household) is exhibiting any symptoms of Covid-19, they stay home from the program for the remainder of the week unless assessed by a doctor and approved to return and/or tested negative.
If your child tests positive for Covid-19:
Parents or guardians of children who test positive for Covid-19 should notify the program immediately upon receipt of the test results. This enables exclusion of the child from the program for the duration of isolation, contact tracing to determine if any children or staff were exposed to the person with Covid-19. Participants of our weekly programs will be asked to stay home for the duration of the week.
If your child has been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19:
All program participants from the group of the individual that tested positive will be monitored by program instructors. Anyone who is identified as a close contact (someone who was within six feet of a person with Covid-19 for at least 15 cumulative minutes over a 24 hour period during the period of time when the person with Covid-19 was infectious) will be notified. If no symptoms are present your child can continue the program but may be required to wear a well fitting mask when indoors and in close proximity to others.
Participants are not required to be vaccinated against Covid-19 to participate in our summer programs.
We ask for full cooperation from families if there is a concern about potential for Covid-19 exposure or symptoms and we will do the same.
If a participant is suspected or confirmed to have Covid-19 during your week or program, we will identify and communicate with anyone who may have been exposed.
We appreciate your understanding and continued support during this time!
