COVID-19 Safety Protocols:

The health and safety of participants and staff is our top priority. We have implemented rigorous, department-wide procedures, which include:

  • Registration and group size are limited.
  • Access to facilities is limited to registered participants and staff, with the exception of those who are onsite for in-person registration.
  • Participants must perform daily well checks at home. If anyone is feeling sick (cough, fever, nausea, runny nose, etc.), they must stay home.
  • Staff will perform temperature checks on participants when they arrive.
  • Face coverings must be worn at all times unless otherwise noted.
  • Social distancing–staying six feet away from others–must be observed at all times, with an understanding of the challenges and limitations for social distancing with very young children and individuals with disabilities.
