Statement of Risk: When children from multiple families attend a single EarlyON center to participate in indoor programming there is an increased risk of the COVID-19 virus being transmitted. Children who are infected with the COVID-19 virus are more likely than adults to have very mild infections or to have no symptoms at all, but these children can still transmit the infection to other children and to adults at the EarlyON program. This means that children can bring home an infection acquired at the EarlyON program and put other persons at risk. This EarlyON Program has a screening process to help detect infections when there are symptoms; however, this screening process will not detect infected children or adults who do not have symptoms at the time of screening. The risk of serious COVID-19 infection increases with age, which older staff and family members should consider in terms of the risk to themselves personally.
Please note that EarlyON programs are required to follow the protocols for the spaces we are using to run programs. If the building we are using requires proof of vaccine and identification, then we are obligated to comply with those protocols. As these protocols change, we will update the information in our calendars. We ask for your patience and understanding as we launch the indoor programs!
The following COVID-19 Protocols will be in place in order for us to safely welcome you and your family indoors for programs:
- Pre-registration: All programs require pre-registration (NO drop-in available)
- Screening: Families/participants will need to complete and pass COVID screen protocols for each location - link will be provided in an email the morning of your program.
- Face Coverings: Families/participants may choose to continue wearing masks/face coverings. They are no longer required for participants in programs.
Be sure to check out the calendar
as we update this over the coming weeks, and follow us on social media @oxfordearlyon to be the first to know about upcoming programs!
