Domestic Camps Advice
OutBeyond (OB’s) management of the Corona Virus is shaped by the Victorian Department of Education’s guidance, as well as National Health Authorities, Being –
Hands - should be washed regularly and dried with a paper towel or an air dryer
Touching – try not to touch your eyes, nose or mouth
Sneezing – use a tissue to cover nose and mouth or sneeze into your elbow
Feel sick? – stay at home and call your GP who will tell you what you need to do
Stay healthy – exercise, drink water, have plenty of sleep and don’t smoke
Face masks – don’t wear one if you are healthy. Only necessary if you have the virus
Flu shot – get one, they become available in due time
Shaking hands – optional. We will teach the kids the “Wuhan elbow bump” the alternative to hand to hand contact which for a moment will put a lighter element to the message.
OB asks parents to reinforce and if needed demonstrate to ensure campers appreciate what they are being asked to do and why. Similarly, OB will talk to these points with campers.
OB will –
we request that they do not attend camps, and, as above, isolate them and call your GP for guidance
as to what to do.
Separate advice is being provided for those booked for international camps.
Do not hesitate to call OB to discuss this matter if that might be helpful.
