Recreation Program COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan

  1. Department staff and instructors will wear a face mask or covering.
  2. Department staff will perform a self-screen before arriving at the program site. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher will be sent home.

  9. The sharing of equipment and supplies will be discouraged. If sharing is unavoidable, the equipment and supplies will be sanitized by Department staff between users.
  10. Participant supplies will be pre-packaged and sealed in plastic bags and labeled with the participant’s name. Participants will take everything in their bag and anything they create during the program home with them at the end of the day.
  11. Program participants will be required to “check-in” with Department staff upon arrival at the program site.
    1. Program participants will be “screened” by Department Staff:
