We will comply with the guidance for Youth Clubs, as posted on the Opening Up Texas website.
While COVID-19 is still spreading through the community, we will be taking the following measures to ensure our Scouts (and their families) remain safe.
Families with new or worsening symptoms consisting of any of the following, are asked to remain at home:
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Repeated shaking with chills
- Muscle pain
- Sore throat
- Loss of taste or smell
- Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit
- Known close contact with a person who is lab confirmed to have COVID-19
Sub-Divide into Smaller Groups
Within a meeting, we will divide families into smaller groups. These groups will be no larger than 10 people.
A Scout is Clean
Hand sanitizer (and disposable masks) are available at both entrances to the church building. Families are encouraged to wash their hands upon arrival and when exiting the building.
Regularly touched items such as chairs, tables, and door knobs will be disinfected using a commercially available solution, which is found on the CDC’s approved list of chemicals known to be effective against COVID-19. Furthermore, we will use a solution known to be safe for environments where children are present.
Wear a Mask
Any time we are indoors, or when 6 feet of separation is not possible, all attendees will be required to wear a face covering of some kind. Masks will be provided for anyone who does not have one.
Nobody should share a tent with a person outside of their own household.
Food will be prepared and served in such a way that attendees are not reaching into common containers or cross-contaminating dishes or utensils. All items will be cleaned using the four-bucket method, which includes a bleach sanitation step.
