COVID 19

Heartwood COVID19 Policy, Response and Communication Plan
Updated 3/31/2022

Based on the evolving nature of COVID19 and how it plays out in our world, Heartwood program requirements for participant and staff mask-wearing and other safety procedures may change depending on a number of factors, including (but not limited to) rising/falling infection rates, federal/state/local government guidance, etc.

Mask Policy

  • Effective March 7th, 2022, masks are optional outside

Daily Health Screenings

If your participant answers yes to any of our screening questions, they will have to stay home for that day. Please stay home if your participant is showing signs and symptoms of an illness, even with a negative COVID-19 test. Let's work together to keep our community healthy! 

Health Screening Questions:  

  • Has your child had a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher in the past 24 hours

  • Does your child have symptoms of COVID-19? 

  • Has your child been in close contact with anyone with a confirmed case of COVID-19 within the past 5 days? (Close contact is being within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period with a person.)

  • Has your child had a positive COVID-19 test in the past 10 days or is your child awaiting results of a COVID-19 test due to possible exposure or symptoms? 

  • Has your child had any medication to reduce a fever within the past 12 hours? 

Refunds will not be given should a federal, state or local government entity advise a change to our health and safety protocols and policies.

Heartwood Nature Programs COVID Response and Communication Plan is based on Washington State Department of Health COVID19 Guidance for Childcare, Youth Development and Day Camps.
