Should my child bring their own hand sanitizer to camp?

The best prevention for contracting COVID-19 from a hard surface is hand-washing. Your children will wash their hands many, many, times each day. Hand sanitizer will only be used in instances where your child touches something and is unable to wash their hands in a short period of time. Your child’s counselors will have small quantities of hand sanitizer. If you would like for your child to have their own individual bottle, you can send it with them. However, again, our focus will be on frequent hand washing. Subject to change based on American Camp Association, CDC, and Dallas Department of Health Guidelines

Will my child have to wear a mask at camp?

All school-age campers will need to wear a mask each day indoors, except while eating & drinking.   Masks will not be required when playing outdoors with their pod and swimming. Camp Simchah campers will be able to remove their mask during eating, drinking, napping, swimming and other strenuous outdoor activities. We know that this a learning process and we will use positive reinforcement and encouragement to teach this skill.

What if my child had a recent previous COVID infection?

In the event you receive an exposure notification involving your child’s class/program and your child has had COVID in the past 30 days, confirmed by a test or a physician's note, please email tohayon@jccdallas.org for instructions.  As always, and in all circumstances, please consult with your physician regarding your child's health and receive professional medical advice.
