To ensure girl safety, we have asked parents and staff to take these precautions, based on the Centers for Disease Control.
- Please keep girls at home if they show flu-like symptoms or have recently had the flu.
- Educate girls about staying healthy (e.g., avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth; use tissues and immediately throw them away; sneeze or cough into elbow rather than into hand).
- Ensure girls wash their hands frequently, especially before snacks or meals. Make anti-bacterial hand sanitizer widely available, including in each unit and bathroom at camping events.
- Stay updated on the signs of flu symptoms. If a girl exhibits flu-like symptoms, contact her parent immediately and send her home. Until a parent arrives, keep her isolated from other girls.
- Visit the Centers for Disease Control website for more information.
