What are the COVID-19 Safety Protocols?  Johnson & Wales University (JWU) is excited to host our campers this summer, and will follow the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local public health officials relating to COVID-19.  We have implemented numerous safety protocols to try to keep your campers and the JWU community safe and healthy.  We ask that our campers’ families also help support our safety efforts by maintaining healthy practices at home and by monitoring your children daily. The following procedures will remain in effect for the Summer Camp 2022 sessions. JWU reserves the right to modify health policies as necessary, with or without notice. 

All faculty, staff, and campers will be required to wear face coverings.
Social distancing will be enforced.
Proper and frequent handwashing will be required, including before entering a classroom, before eating, after using the restroom, and prior to leaving for home.
Class sizes have been reduced to 12 students per class.  We will run only four classes per week to reduce the number of campers on campus.  Students will work in groups of two per workstation during the class.
Lunches will be provided in single serve boxes and will be distributed at the end of the day for take home.  Lunch will not be consumed in the classroom.  Snacks and beverages will be available in single serve containers.  Campers are encouraged to bring their own labeled water bottles to camp.
Our summer camp Friday Open House for parents and families will be discontinued this year. Plans are being made for an alternate activity for campers.
All surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected throughout the day, and the entire lab will be cleaned and sanitized at the end of each day.
Parents will be required to complete a “Program Participation Agreement” prior to the start of the camp week.
Parents must screen children daily for symptoms of Covid-19 (including fever, chills, cough, headache, fatigue, nausea, and diarrhea), and complete a daily Covid-19 Questionnaire prior to their child being admitted to camp. 
Camper drop-off and pick-up will take place via vehicle only. Instructions will be sent to registered families prior to each camp.

Despite these precautions, it is impossible for JWU—and, indeed, most other institutions—to guarantee anyone’s immunity from exposure to and infection with COVID-19 and all related consequences, which could be severe.
