Public Health Unit
We will be working closely with Ontario Public Health to develop policies and procedures to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the camp community. Public Health will inform us what camp will look like this year and we will be working diligently to ensure all safety protocols are carefully met at Silver Lake.
RN Health Team
Silver Lake is equipped with a team of experienced Registered Nurses, some of which work in Infectious Disease Control, who will help inform all health and safety policies and procedures at camp. As per usual, an RN will be on site each and every week this summer.
Training for staff will be enhanced to ensure they are properly informed on any new safety protocols and procedures.
This may include, but not limited to:
Proper handwashing frequency and techniques
Familiarity with the current government and public health guidance
Proper techniques for general cleaning and disinfecting
Proper use and disposal of personal protective equipment, such as gloves and masks. Instructions for donning and doffing of PPE, physical distancing, and group gathering limits
Enhanced Cleaning Protocols
We have provided a 24-hour window between each camp to ensure that our site is thoroughly cleaned and prepared before a new arrival of campers.
Cabins will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected daily including prior to camper arrival, and subsequent to departure. We take special care to clean and disinfect door handles, countertops and other high touchpoints.
Staff will be trained and campers will be informed on where and when to apply hand sanitizer. In addition, medical-grade hand sanitizer stations will be installed in abundance around the camp.
With Public Health’s guidance, we will implement contact tracing procedures to ensure we are well prepared in response to any positive cases of COVID-19.
