– Recommended methods for typical cleaning procedures include two-stage cleaning and disinfecting.3 “ Cleaning” entails washing with a detergent and water to remove soil, organic matter, and some microorganisms from a surface. Following a detergent and water wash, “disinfecting” entails use of a U .S . Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-approved disinfectant that must be applied in accordance with product manufacturer guidelines. Refer to the EPA List of Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV2: disinfectants-use-against-sars-cov-2. A dilute bleach solution can be substituted for EPA-approved disinfectants.
– If disinfecting products are not available, a dilute bleach solution can be used, comprising four teaspoons of bleach to a quart of water.
– Many disinfecting products can be skin and respiratory irritants. Green Seal, a non-profit certification organization, recommends selecting products with the following active ingredients: •Hydrogen peroxide•Citric acid•Lactic acid•Ethyl alcohol (also called ethanol)•Isopropyl alcohol (70%)•Hypochlorous acid
– Holding activities outdoors as much as possible is recommended.
– Limit shared high-touch equipment and designate equipment to campers or groups, if feasible, for the duration of camp.
Organize camp into the smallest practical group sizes and to the extent possible keep groups consistent throughout the camp program. •To the extent possible, maintain consistent counselor assignments for groups aka as “households” and activities. •To the extent possible, minimize mixing between groups. •If groups must mix, consider other mitigation methods such as outdoor activities, increased ventilation in buildings, physical distancing between groups, or the use of facial coverings if age and developmentally appropriate. Note that group size must still comply with state and/or local requirements.
– Wash hands, soap and water, 20 seconds.
