This is a working document of Love Your Nature's guidelines for in person programs. This document will be revised as needed to ensure safe participation.
Covid-19 Protocols & Safety Guidelines
Masks: All participants should bring a clean face covering that fits securely.
Distance: We intend to meet outdoors, wear masks and stay ~6 feet apart. In talking circle, the speaker will be allowed to remove their mask while speaking. Especially during break or snack time we will restate agreements to stay safe.
Hand-washing: We will have regular hand washing breaks that will include hand sanitizer, and whenever possible soap and water. We also ask that all participants bring their own hand sanitizer.
Capping participants: We will work together to continue to hold groups in person as much as possible, while also staying within the CA state health guidelines.
Staying home if sick: Anyone who has been sick, has been in contact with someone who is either sick or who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last two weeks before our meeting should stay home. We may or may not be able to accommodate a Zoom drop in depending on our location and agenda.
Switching to online meetings: If due to Shelter In Place, air quality due to fires, or other unforeseen "disasters" we need to cancel in-person meetings, we will switch to a 2 hour online session instead. This will be decided as far in advance as possible, and by the Monday before that group meeting.
Recommendation: When teens return from meetings, wash hands, change clothes, and possibly take a shower.
