Mask Update (8/2/21)
August 2, 2021
Dear Kidcam Parents,
Today, Governor John B. Edwards reissued the mask mandate for the state of Louisiana for ages 5+ while indoors.
Kidcam’s staff has been required to wear masks while indoors for a few weeks but requiring our campers to mask up was something we left up to their parents. However, effective tomorrow, Tuesday, August 3, all campers and staff will be required to wear masks while indoors at camp.
Our camper enrollment is significantly less in this final week of camp, and the weather should be ‘cooler,’ so we will do our best to remain outdoors and distanced so that mask breaks can be taken often and the kiddos continuing having a great time at Kidcam.
I’m hopeful that those who are in attendance will respect this mandate to allow us to finish this summer strong and keep our children healthy and able to return to school in person.
As the head of Epidemiology at Children’s Hospital said today, I feel like I’ve been thrown a lifeline going into these final few days of camp. This is a critical and necessary step for us to take to remain safe and ensure our children can start – and stay – in school this year.
We must remain so vigilant these final 4 days of camp. Please monitor your child, and if they aren’t feeling well or are having any type of symptoms, or have been exposed to Covid in any way, please keep them home.
At Kidcam, we will continue doing our best work with distanced programming, effective sanitation and wearing our masks.
Thank you again for entrusting Kidcam with the safety and care of your child this summer. I wish you all the best for a healthy & happy school year.
Stay safe and stay well,
President & CEO, Kidcam Camps
