In an effort to put program participants and staff at the lowest risk for contracting COVID-19 at Wells Recreation programs, the Wells Recreation Department will be implementing procedures in accordance to CDC guidelines. 

The following policies & procedures have been put in place:

  1. Health screenings will be conducted for program participants. If a participant can not pass the health screening, they will not be allowed to attend the program until they can pass the screening. 
  2. Small groups of campers will stay together each day.
  3. Social distancing will be encouraged.
  4. Sharing of equipment during programs will be limited and disinfection will occur between users if equipment must be shared. 
  5. Frequently touched surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected regularly.
  6. Cloth face masks will be worn by staff when social distancing can not be maintained. Cloth face masks are highly encouraged for participants, especially when social distancing can not be maintained. 
In addition to these policies and procedures, it is also important that families be part of this effort as well. In order to participate in current programs, families must agree to the following:
  1. I agree to keep my child(ren) home if they are sick or not feeling well.
  2. I will notify Wells Recreation and keep my child(ren) home if my child(ren) has been exposed to COVID-19. 
  3. I will practice social distancing when dropping off/picking up my child(ren) and while at any Wells Recreation facility.
