Dr. Arati Karnik, MD, a member of Urban Adventure Squad's Board of Directors, discusses our safety protocols and the importance of the outdoors in reducing COVID transmission.
OUTDOOR MASKS NOW OPTIONAL
Masks are optional--outdoors only--for programs that we host. We will remain fully masked during the indoor portions of our programs. We request that all participants wear a KN95 or surgical mask for all indoor time. The Squad will provide these to any child who doesn’t have them.
WHEN NOT TO SEND YOUR CHILD TO OUR PROGRAM
If your child has tested positive for COVID, they should not rejoin Squad programs for at least 10 days, until symptoms resolve, and they take at least one negative test. If symptoms included fever, they should be fever-free for at least 24 hours without fever-reducing medication.
Do not send your child to a Squad program if they're experiencing any of the follow symptoms:
Fever or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
New loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
Urban Adventure Squad follows local and federal guidelines for safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to adapt and revise our protocols as we follow the science and continue our year-round programming.
