Current Safety Protocols
Updated September 2, 2021
With the increasing spread of the Delta variant, we are restricting the use of indoor spaces to emergency situations only (exception – PGA TOUR Superstore classes will still be held within the store) . However, our buildings will remain open for regular use with observance of social distancing. Safety remains a top priority and we will continue to monitor health and safety guidelines as they develop. Daily sanitization will include common touch points such as doors, tables, chairs, restrooms, and common areas. Additionally, hand sanitizer will be available and we encourage staff, interns, and participants to use as needed.
Please review the following information carefully prior to arriving to class or camps. If you have any questions or concerns about our new procedures, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at email@example.com or by phone at (817) 420-9370. Our office hours through the Fall and Winter seasons are Monday-Friday 9:00 am – 5:00 pm and Saturdays 9:00 am – 3:00 pm.
Participants are not allowed to participate in Life Skills Experience classes or camps while experiencing any of the following symptoms, which may be related to COVID-19.
- Persistent, untreated coughing
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Chills or repeated shaking with chills
- Muscle pain
- Sore throat
- Loss of taste or smell
- Feeling feverish or has a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit
- Having known close contact with a person who is lab confirmed to have COVID-19 within a 14-day period (see exceptions for those who are vaccinated below).
Exposure to a Known Positive COVID-19 Case
If a participant or coach has had known close contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19, there are a few options depending on vaccination status.
If the participant or coach is vaccinated and experiencing no symptoms, the individual may return to programming.
If the participant or coach is NOT vaccinated we ask that the individual follow the CDC’s recommendations regarding quarantine and not return to programming until the quarantine period is over.
Positive COVID-19 Case Policies
Participants who are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or have had a lab confirmed test for COVID-19 may not participate in Life Skills Experience classes or camps until the following criteria have been met.
- At least 3 days (72 hours) have passed since recovery (resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications); and
- the participant has improvement in symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath); and
- at least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared.
Permission to return must be granted from the Executive Director or Director of Programs in advance.
Camp & Class Group Policies in the event of a Positive COVID-19 Test
Please note that any positive case will be reviewed by the Executive Director and appropriate action taken following the current CDC Guidelines.
Classes: In the event that a coach or participant tests positive for COVID-19, vaccinated participants may follow the above guidelines for those exposed to a known positive case (see section Exposure to a Known Positive COVID-19 Case). For those participants or coaches who are unvaccinated, participants may return to class if they are showing no symptoms and it has been (1) 10 days since exposure without testing for COVID, or (2) 7 days since exposure with a negative COVID-19 test taken on the 5th day.
Participant’s Exhibiting Symptoms
If any participant exhibits symptoms during camp, the coach with that cohort (group) will notify the staff member in charge immediately and the participant can be separated from the group. That participant’s parent will be notified to pick up their child and parents of other participants within that cohort will be notified and given the option of picking up their child early. No cancellations under this scenario since there is NOT a confirmed COVID case.
Participants who are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 but have not tested positive for the virus may immediately participate in programming by obtaining a medical professional’s note clearing the individual for participation based on a negative nucleic-acid COVID-19 test and an alternative diagnosis.
