During the summer of 2020 we are in the COVID-19 pandemic. Our steps to avoid infection and cross-contamination are as follows:
▪The CDC considers a person to have a fever when he or she has measured temperature of 100.4°F (38°C) or above.
▪Staff temperatures will be taken at the start of their shift. Staff with a temperature of 100.4°F (38°C) or above will be sent home.
▪Staff are expected to disclose any irregular symptoms to the infection control officer. The infection control officer will determine if symptoms are consistent with the CDC warnings for COVID-19.
▪Staff members will take the temperature of each participant as they arrive and record it, disinfect the thermometer between uses, and wear a mask and gloves during the entire check in process to reduce cross contamination.Children with a temperature of 100.4°F (38°C) or above will be sent home.
▪If the participant or staff member is symptomatic or if anyone is sick or symptomatic in their household they must stay home for 48 hours after the last symptom. If they arrive at camps with symptoms they will be sent home to as per the governor's recommendations.
▪All participants must pass the COVID-19 screening questions which are attached to this document.
▪The Oregon Health Authority must be notified of any staff member or participant that presents COVID-19 symptoms.
▪Participants may choose not to wear masks at the discretion of their parents if they are physically distanced from other riders. If a child cannot maintain physical distance, however, he or she may be required to wear a mask for the remainder of the activity. Those participants wearing masks will be closely monitored to prevent breathing or heat distress. Masks may be removed periodically and as necessary with social distancing measures in place.
▪To reduce exposure, each participant will be assigned their own horse per day, including assigned saddles, reins, and helmets.
▪Staff will disinfect all saddles, reins, and helmets as well as all tools used (rakes, forks, buckets, etc.) in order to avoid cross-contamination.
▪Brush boxes with grooming supplies will sit untouched for 72 hours after use to allow adequate time to kill the COVID-19 virus.
▪The bathroom will be disinfected frequently to prevent potential exposure to the virus.
▪Staff cannot offer participants snacks or water that was not brought from the participant's home. Fresh unopened bottles of water will be made available in the case of an emergency.
▪Participants will be required to clean their hands in the presence of a staff member after bathroom breaks to ensure proper sanitization.
▪In order to prevent exposure and cross-contamination, Staff members are required to wear a mask for personal instruction of participants as well as helping participants get on horses. Staff members must wash/sanitize their hands after any close contact with participants.
▪To reduce the spread of COVID-19 all participants and staff will practice proper social distancing, frequently wash/sanitize hands, wear masks, avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth, and disinfect all frequently touched surfaces and tools.
