COVID19 UPDATES

Coyote Camp Summer 2020 (limited groups July 6-Aug 14)

Highlights of the safety protocols you’ll see at Camp:

  • Teachers will wear masks, and only come to work if they are 100% healthy.

  • Children will be screened upon arrival, and temperatures will be taken, or reported and recorded each morning at drop off. If anyone has a temperature of 100.4°F/38°C, or 100.0°F* or higher they must be excluded from Camp. *Because infrared thermometers (the kind we will use) tend to read slightly lower than oral thermometers, SFDPH recommends a single screening threshold of 100 degrees for everyone. If a temperature reads below 96 degrees it will be rechecked.

  • Teachers will monitor children’s health throughout the day.

  • Parks Plus Creation will not allow any child to come to, or remain at Camp with any cold or flu-like symptoms, included but not limited to:

    • Fever or chills

    • Cough

    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

    • Fatigue

    • Muscle or body aches

    • Headache

    • New loss of taste or smell

    • Sore throat

    • Congestion or runny nose

    • Nausea or vomiting

    • Diarrhea 

  • Teachers will assist children in proper handwashing upon arrival (at our upgraded handwashing station!), just before departure, before and after mealtime, bathrooming or after using a tissue, and as needed throughout the day.

  • Teachers will encourage kindness and empathy, and support creative ways for children to show affection for their friends.

  • Teachers will encourage children to cover their mouths and keep fingers away from their face.

  • Teachers will thoughtfully plan activities, and stagger gatherings and meals to support physical distancing.

  • Teachers will provide daily communication about the Camp day via email, so face-to-face adult conversations can be limited.

  • Parks Plus Creation will communicate with families if a child, or teacher has COVID-19 infection confirmed by a positive COVID-19 test, and take necessary next steps as recommended by SFDPH.

  • Families will be required to communicate if anyone in their household has tested positive for COVID-19, if they have come in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, or if they have traveled in the past 14 days.
