COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to be spread by person-to-person contact; as a result, federal and state health agencies recommend masking, physical distancing, and various other measures to mitigate the risk of contracting the virus. Landon School and Landon Summer have implemented reasonable preventative protocols, policies, and procedures designed to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Campers, counselors, and their families are expected to adhere to these protocols in order to reduce the risks of contracting or spreading the virus at camp.
Despite the protocols and procedures in place to mitigate the risk of transmission of COVID-19 on campus, there are inherent risks that campers, counselors and/or their families may become infected with COVID-19 due to the camper’s participation in in-person activities as part of the summer camp at Landon School. Parents understand, acknowledge, and voluntarily assume these risks on behalf of themselves and the campers. These risks include, but are not limited to, the following: exposure to COVID-19, becoming infected with COVID-19, or becoming a symptomatic or asymptomatic carrier of the virus.
It is possible that a camper is already an asymptomatic carrier of the virus before attending camp and may infect other campers, counselors, employees, or other individuals at Landon Summer as a result of his/her presence on campus. Any person who receives a positive diagnosis of COVID-19, including a camper, counselor, or their family member, may encounter extended quarantine/self-isolation, additional tests, medical care, hospitalization, other potential complications, and the risk of death. By allowing their child to participate in Landon Summer on campus, parents understand, acknowledge, and voluntarily assume these risks.
