The CDC has released "Guidance for Operating Youth and Summer Camps During COVID-19." While these are just guidelines it is important to keep up to date with what each camp is doing here in the Quad Cities.

Each camp will have their own rules, and guidelines this summer.

Here are a majority of the CDC guidelines:

  • Added vaccination information.
  • Updated guidance on physical distancing.
  • Updated guidance on camp activities, including sports and athletic activities.
  • Updated considerations for screening testing and contact tracing.
  • Updated guidance on cleaning and disinfection.
  • Removed guidance on physical barriers.
  • Updated guidance on developing emergency operations plans.
  • Updated guidance on ventilation and water systems.
  • Updated guidance for communal spaces, food service, playgrounds and play space.
  • Updated guidance for overnight camps.

KCRG also reported that,

Vaccines are recommended for everyone who can get them, but that won’t apply to most campers because there is still no vaccine approved for kids under 16 years old.

So for now we may see a lot of six foot rules.

The YMCA has been vocal about the importance of COVID-19 Vaccines and other things involving COVID. So we will keep a close eye on what their camps have planned for 2021.
