2024 COVID-19 Protocols and Prevention
Wanapitei is grateful that reports on COVID-19 continue to show decreases in case numbers and hospitalizations. We continue to monitor situations and will respond accordingly to any guidance from health and/or government officials should these trends change.
Given the nature of our programs, including remote travel and contact with small communities, including isolated Indigenous communities, we may need to adjust our protocols should the situation in Canada change, however, at this time there will not be a mandatory vaccination policy in place for 2024.
It is recommended that all campers and staff be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (2 doses), with a strong recommendation for up-to-date booster shots.
Arriving in Good Health
As always, we ask that all campers and staff arrive to camp in good health. If your camper is not well, please stay home.
If a trip visits a remote community, campers and staff may be asked to wear a mask in order to protect vulnerable community members during their visit. Camp Wanapitei will support any local communities ask around masking or isolating if need be.
In Camp Testing
Campers and staff who present with symptoms of COVID will be asked to test at our camp health centre. Campers who test positive will need to be collected from camp and may be able to return. Return-to-camp requirements will be on a case by case basis, but the general protocol is five days past the date of the first positive test result and at least 24 hours free of fever and with marked symptom resolution.
