Camp Chase Covid 19 Protocols 2022:
The Greater Hartford Y strongly encourages COVID vaccinations for everyone who is eligible, however a vaccination is not required to attend day camp.
Wearing a well-fitting mask consistently and correctly reduces the risk of spreading the virus that causes COVID-19. Any camper or staff who chooses to wear a mask will be supported in their decision to do.
Parents are asked to monitor their child for signs and symptoms of infectious disease. Please keep your child home from camp if they are sick. Our staff will regularly monitor all campers for potential COVID symptoms. If a camper is exhibiting symptoms or says they’re not feeling well, parents will be notified to have their child pick up from summer camp. The child can return to camp after providing a negative covid test or their symptoms have resolved.
Definition of Vaccination Status Update
The CDC has used a three-tiered COVID-19 vaccination status:
- Up to date (with all eligible boosters)
- Fully vaccinated (having completed the primary series)
- Not vaccinated.
Vaccination status has important implications for who needs to quarantine when exposed to a case of COVID-19. Additionally, up-to-date status now applies to all ages five and older, who are now eligible for boosters. Please read below for information on how vaccination status determines quarantine at this time.
Vaccination Status, Isolation, and Quarantine
It is important to note that all campers and staff who test positive for COVID-19 must isolate, regardless of vaccination status. Additionally, note that attendees who are not up to date on COVID-19 vaccines need to quarantine after exposure, while those up to date on COVID-19 vaccines do not need to quarantine (but should wear a well-fitting mask for 10 days and get tested).
