Last year, the coronavirus pandemic forced many summer camps to close and families to change their plans.
The Biden Administration is set to relax federal public health guidelines regarding wearing masks outdoors, CNBCreports. Participants include Dr. Anthony Fauci, Andy Slavitt, White House senior advisor for COVID-19 response, and Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the CDC.
Toys, books, electronic devices and other items normally passed around among children should not be shared, the CDC added. The guidance notes the key role that camps play in individuals' social, emotional and physical development, and goes on to outline strategies they can use to maintain healthy environments and prepare to respond to potential infections.
The agency also stressed that the guidelines are meant to supplement, not replace, state and local regulations already in place. "The higher the level of community transmission, the more likely that the virus that causes COVID-19 will be introduced into the camp facility from the community, which could lead to in-camp transmission if layered prevention strategies are not in use".
But the U.S.is entering a new phase of the pandemic. Masks should not be worn while eating, drinking or swimming, the guidance notes. Vaccinated folks can take off their masks when gathering with fully vaccinated groups indoors, but the agency has yet to address outdoor mask-wearing. Campers are advised to be at least three feet apart from others in their cohort and six feet apart while eating and drinking.
During a Facebook live chat with Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo (D) last August, Fauci advised people to "get as much outdoors as you possibly can", noting that "superspreader" events nearly always happen indoors in places like "nursing homes, meat-packing, prisons, choirs in churches, congregations of weddings and other social events where people get together". They should also teach and reinforce hygiene practices such as frequent hand-washing and limiting sharing of objects.
A variety of other specific camp activities should be adjusted or avoided altogether, said the CDC. An additional section for overnight camps discusses screening testing, symptom checking and contact tracing policies in more detail.
Nap time mats used for younger campers should be sanitized before and after use, according to the guidance, and spaced out "as much as possible".
