Daily Health Screening for COVID-19
To help reduce the transmission of COVID-19 and other illnesses at camp, anyone who meets any of the criteria below will not be allowed at Schoolhouse of Wonder.
Before Camp: Parents are encouraged to be on the alert for signs of illness in their children and are required to keep them home if the answer is ‘Yes’ to any of the health screening questions below.
Upon Arrival: We will ask the person dropping off the camper if they can confirm that the answer to all of these screening questions is “No.”
Has anyone being dropped off at Schoolhouse of Wonder
- Tested positive for Covid-19 in the last 10 days?
- Been exposed to Covid-19 in the last 10 days?
- Experienced any of the following symptoms in the last 48 hours?
- Fever (100.4 or higher) or chills
- Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
Staff will also make a visual inspection of the camper for subjective signs of illness (e.g. flushed cheeks, fatigue, extreme fussiness, shivering, sweating).
During Camp: We will use these procedures for any camper that exhibits new or worsening symptoms of COVID-19 at camp:
- Camper will be removed from the group and moved to an isolated location under supervision.
- Staff will notify caregivers of the symptoms and the need for immediate pick up.
- Families are encouraged to coordinate decision-making around the child’s care with family health care provider.
Returning To Camp (please also refer to flow chart below):
- In the case of a camper who has symptoms that could be COVID-19 and does not get evaluated by a medical professional or tested for COVID-19 with a viral test done in a laboratory (e.g. PCR test), the child is assumed to have COVID-19 and cannot return to camp until the individual has met criteria for return.
- A camper who has exhibited symptoms that could be COVID-19 can return to camp if:
- the PCR Test result is negative OR they have a note from a health care professional with clearance to return, AND
- it has been at least 24 hours since they had a fever (without the use of fever-reducing medication) AND
- their symptoms have improved significantly.
After Camp: We request that families remain in contact with us post-camp. Please let us know if anyone in your household tests positive for COVID-19 in the two weeks after attending camp. If this is the case, we will notify all campers and staff who may have been in close contact with the camper.
Absences from Camp: Please call the Site Manager or the Schoolhouse office to report all absences from camp.
Before Camp: If a staff member self-identifies as having symptoms listed in the screening criteria above, they will contact their supervisor, not come to work, and follow procedures outlined in the table below.
During Camp: Staff exhibiting new or worsening symptoms of possible COVID-19 at camp should:
- Inform their supervisor and leave the camp group immediately
- Obtain a COVID-19 test (PCR)
- Follow the recommendations of their healthcare provider
- Follow the protocol for returning to work
If there are indications that anyone with COVID-19 (symptomatic or asymptomatic) has attended camp, we will notify families immediately. If applicable, we will cancel the remainder of that camp and provide prorated refunds.
Campers or Staff Returning to Camp: Communicate with the office to determine the timeline for return following COVID-19 symptoms, diagnosis, or exposure.
