We are excited to share that Bethel Horizons is slowly getting back to having regular programming. Each person who comes to camp will still be asked general screening questions in order to lower the risk of bringing COVID-19 to camp. There will also be general policies that will help to minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19 at camp.
For Summer Camp, we have developed the following specific policies and screening tools to help us manage the safety and well-being of our campers and staff.
For retreats and other gatherings, we have developed the following guidelines for events at Horizons:
If you have any questions regarding these policies or screening tools, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 608-257-3577 x334 or ask for Linda.
Preparing for COVID-19
In the case of COVID-19, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently advises that common symptoms include flu-like symptoms (fever (100° F or higher), cough or sore throat, headache or body aches, and in some cases diarrhea and vomiting) or symptoms of respiratory illness (fever (100° F or higher), cough, and shortness of breath). In order to slow or stop the spread of these illnesses, it is critical to follow the below instructions:
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, the CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
- Wear a face covering when in the presence of people not from your household.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty.
