Steps we are taking to greatly reduce the likelihood that illness will be spread at our youth programs:
All outdoors - Earth Native is 100% outdoors which greatly reduces the potential for illness to spread at our classes and programs.
Spacing out at class - Luckily every location where we operate has ample space to spread out!
Small groups - We will be limiting our class groups to a maximum of 9 students per Instructor, to minimize the number of people that each student will come in contact with.
No sick students at class - We will not allow students to be at class who are experiencing symptoms of illness and will be asking students/parents to certify prior to class that neither the student, nor anyone in their household is experiencing any of the symptoms of COVID-19.
Sanitizing - Increased hand-washing/sanitizing, and increased sanitization of common areas and shared equipment
Health Screenings - Including temperature checks prior to class to ensure that no students has a fever of 100.0 or higher and parent questionnaire certifying that no one in the child's household is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 nor has anyone in the household been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the 14 days prior to class.
NOTE ON MASKS
All youth students who are 5 years old and older should bring a cloth face mask to class as part of their gear. They will not be required to wear masks the majority of the time at class. However there will be occasions when masks will be required, such as during times of sustained close interactions with others.
