On Monday we had one Point cabin leader test positive for COVID. We immediately sent that staff member home, and following MDH guidelines, all of the campers in that cabin that were unvaccinated, close contacts were also sent home. Additionally, we called every camper parent of adjacent cabins to let them know what had happened. Our other two camps - Timber Ridge and Wild Woods – were not affected by this event as they are on completely different properties and there was no crossover between camps and events.
As you know, this summer we are still using cohorts and distancing between cabin groups as our main COVID mitigation plan. We feel this plan was a key element in helping us successfully contain and navigate these incidents. The MDH is also aware of these cases and has been helping us to make the correct decisions moving forward. Just short of 90% of our summer and full-time staff have been vaccinated.
