COVID - 19
On this page is where you will find all of our COVID-19 Policies and Procedures. We work with our partners, local county health departments, Nebraska Medicine, the VNA and our medical team to ensure we abide by updated recommendations. In addition, we will be following guidance from both the American Camp Association and the CDC.
Will masks be required?
Masks will be required to be worn while indoors by staff if they have active symptoms. Campers are encouraged to wear one if they have active symptoms, but not required.
Masks are not required while eating or sleeping. Meal times and snacks will be staggered and campers and staff will be spread a safe distance away from one another while eating.
What will pre-screening processes be?
Our campers are at higher risk of contracting COVID and are also at higher risk of developing serious complications from the virus. Therefore, we ask that families be vigilant of symptoms that may come up within 2 weeks of attending camp. Upon arrival, campers will be screened and temperature checked.
What if my camper was exposed to COVID 19 by another camper or staff member?
Once Easterseals is made aware of any positive COVID 19 cases of campers or staff during a camp session, Easterseals will notify families. This could result in ending a session early or cancelling the next session due to staff exposure. Refunds would be issued either pro-rated for a partial session, or a full refund for a full session.
Are COVID vaccines for campers required?
Vaccines are not required for campers. This could change in future years.
Are vaccines for staff required?
Staff are not required to be vaccinated. However, in 2022, all staff were vaccinated.
