COVID Protocol Questions

What protections and procedures are in place to fight community spread of COVID-19?

WisCorps & Myrick Park Center are following CDC guidelines. Face coverings are currently optional (see question below for more details). Teachers or children must stay home if they are not feeling well. Teachers will teach and reinforce good hygiene practices and hand washing. Close contact will be minimized and cleaning protocols are significantly enhanced.

What measures are in place to foster a sense of normalcy for children in a pandemic world?

Daily routines and structure offer stability during times of stress and create an environment that empowers children to build confidence and independence. Social and emotional learning is an important area of development for children. WisCorps Nature Camps create a structured environment with small group sizes to continue socialization in a safe environment. Social distancing will be taking place throughout the day but we work within these parameters of the pandemic to still provide important aspects of socialization such as using manners, acts of kindness, inclusion, and emotional awareness.

Will the staff, adults, and children have to wear masks?

Masks are currently OPTIONAL for staff and adults, and children age 2 or older. As educators in science, we feel strongly it is important to follow where the science takes us! Current research shows masks are a simple and effective tool during the pandemic. This tool offers stability to programs by decreasing the risk of virus spread which helps us create a safe environment and continue to provide services.  

What is your illness protocol?

Staff, parents, and campers should know the symptoms of COVID-19:

(list updated from La Crosse County Health Department 8/20/20)

  • Fever

  • Chills

  • Runny nose

  • Congestion

  • Muscle or body aches

  • Cough

  • Tiredness

  • Headache

  • Loss of sense of taste or smell

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Diarrhea

Staff and families should notify WisCorps and contact healthcare providers if they develop symptoms of COVID-19 or any other illness and will be asked to STAY HOME until they are symptom-free for 72 hours.

Children have always been monitored for signs of illness during programs and now this will include signs of COVID-19. Any camper who becomes unwell during programs will be immediately asked to return home.  Children or staff who test positive for COVID-19 should follow the county’s current recommendations for self-isolation.
