Health & Safety

Providence Day School has consistently followed public health guidance to keep our community safe and able to continue in-person learning since the fall of 2020. Summer at Providence Day has followed the same protocols through two seasons of summer camp. 
 
Effective February 28, 2022, the school adopted a mask-optional policy on the Providence Day campus. Based on conditions, policies will be updated as needed per official guidance from the NC Department of Health and Human Services and/or the Mecklenburg County Health Department. The following policies are in effect for the 2022 camp season:
  1. Face coverings will continue to be very welcome on our campus. In fact, we expect a wide range of masking preferences and practices, and we expect a climate of respect for one another’s decisions. Our staff and campers will model kindness, acceptance, and inclusivity while on campus.
  2. Campers or staff who are showing symptoms of COVID-19 will need to stay home and test prior to returning to camp.
  3. Individuals testing positive for COVID-19 may not return to camp for five (5) days after the onset of COVID symptoms. 
  4. Contact tracing is not a part of our summer camp protocol. Individuals who are exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID will not be required to quarantine at home regardless of their vaccination status. 
  5. Individuals who have tested positive and are returning after the current day five protocol will need to wear a mask for the following five days (until day 10 from the start of symptoms). 
  6. We will notify camp families if/when an individual has tested positive in their child’s camp. We will advise them to monitor their own child’s symptoms closely and have them tested if they become symptomatic.
 
Other safety protocols are in effect during the summer months. Fire drills are conducted on a monthly basis in accordance with local ordinances. Camp staff are trained in proper response procedures to keep your camper safe at all times.
