Information regarding vaccination, testing, and mask requirements for 2022 in-person programs is outlined below. New updated for the 2023 season will be coming soon. (Updated 08/2022)
Our medical team works hard every year to make camp as safe as possible for all our campers and our volunteers. They will continue to monitor current public health issues and we will update our safety protocols as is appropriate.
At this time, Okizu is requiring all individuals attending an in-person session of camp be vaccinated against COVID-19. All attendees must be up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccines per CDC guidelines for their age group. If you would like more information, please call the Okizu office or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also visit the CDC website at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/recommendations/specific-groups.html
Testing for COVID-19 will be expected to attend in-person program. At this time, our Medical Advisory Committee has stated it is too far in advance to determine the testing algorithm based on current infection rate. We will provide more information on testing requirements as we get closer to the in-person camp sessions.
Masks will be required for all campers and volunteer staff attending in-person programs while indoors, and when in close proximity outdoors when outside of designated cohorts.
**** All information presented above is subject to change with advice from our Medical Advisory Committee as the climate of COVID-19 is constantly changing. Okizu always prioritizes the safety of our campers and staff and we will continue to do so moving forward.*****
