As the CDC and State of Ohio continue to encourage the practice of health protocols to help protect those who are not yet eligible to be vaccinated — those who are 11 and younger — CJ has put into place summer safety health protocols that the community will follow effective immediately. This will help ensure the safety of our students and young visitors and camp participants.
Employees & Adult Visitors
Effective immediately, wearing a mask and practicing social distancing inside of CJ’s buildings are now optional for those employees and adult visitors who have been fully vaccinated. Per CDC guidelines, those who have not been fully vaccinated are expected to continue to wear a mask and practice social distancing. Visitors should still register with Visitu.
CJ Students & Young Visitors
All CJ students and school-aged visitors (vaccinated or unvaccinated) are required to wear a mask while indoors on campus for all activities (athletics, performing arts, clubs, etc.) unless actively engaged in physical activity like playing a sport, lifting weights, etc. This is out of an abundance of caution for those youth in our CJ community who have not yet been vaccinated or have not become eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccination. Wearing a mask outdoors is optional for everyone.
Youth - CJ Eagles Summer Camps and Classes
Because of the risk of contracting COVID-19 for those under the age of 12 and those who are unvaccinated, CJ is following CDC’s recommended camp guidelines to help insure the safety of all who are participating in camps or classes:
- All vaccinated and unvaccinated participants, directors, assistants of a camp or class are required to wear a mask anytime they are indoors during camp or class sessions. This includes outdoor camp participants when they enter the building for any reason (rain, restrooms, breaks, etc.) The only exception is for when participants are actively engaged in periods of physical activity.
- All individuals interacting with indoor camp participants or entering camp space are also required to wear a mask while in proximity to participants (employees, maintenance, guest presenters, etc.)
- Wearing a mask outdoors is optional for everyone.
With COVID-19 health orders and capacity limits rescinded, CJ will no longer require:
- temperature checks at the door for all,
- student temperature checks prior to all gatherings (practices, meetings, events etc.), and
- the completion of health questions either in-person for students, or through Visitu for employees and guests. All individuals should continue to monitor their health daily and not come to campus if they have a fever, are managing a fever with medication, or are experiencing cold or flu symptoms.
In following current safety guidelines:
- Positive cases of COVID-19 for all students, employees and guests should be reported to (866) 271-9303 or firstname.lastname@example.org, and
- CJ will continue to issue close contact/proximity letters to those who are impacted and the website will be updated for newly issued contact/proximity letters.
In consideration of all
We ask all to be mindful, respectful and supportive of individuals who continue to wear a mask and practice social distance while at CJ. Let’s give each other some grace as we transition from pandemic conditions to the new normal we will discover together.
Do I still have to wear a mask when I am on CJ’s campus?
If you are fully vaccinated and visiting campus, you do not need to wear a facial covering. However, those attending or visiting indoor CJ events like summer camps or summer learning must wear a facial covering while in the classroom or indoor event space. Fully vaccinated individuals who wish to continue wearing a facial covering are encouraged to do so for personal or other reasons.
Why do I have to wear a mask when I am visiting an indoor event at CJ like a summer camp or summer learning?
Those under the age of 12 are still not eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Because of this, CJ is taking recommended and proactive steps to ensure the safety of all those participating in camps or classes. One of these proactive measures is requiring facial coverings.
Do I still need to have my temperature taken when I visit CJ?
No. CJ will no longer require temperature checks at doors or before gatherings.
Will I still be required to fill out a health check questionnaire when I visit CJ?
No. CJ will no longer require visitors to fill out a health check questionnaire before entering CJ.
Do I still need to monitor any COVID-19 related symptoms?
Yes. Although CJ will not be conducting temperature checks or requiring health questionnaires, it is expected that those visiting CJ monitor their symptoms, including symptoms of children coming to campus, before visiting CJ.
Am I still required to report a positive case of COVID-19 to CJ if I or my child has tested positive for the virus?
Yes. If you or your child has tested positive for COVID-19 and recently visited CJ (within 48 hours of testing positive), you are required to report the case to CJ so the school’s COVID Response Team can enact proper contact tracing, reporting, and cleaning procedures.
Are these new policies and procedures subject to change?
Yes. The CJ COVID Response Team will reconvene in the coming months to review public health guidelines and other relevant information to discuss CJ policies and look to protocols for the start of the 2021-2022 school year.
I still have a question; who do I contact?
