Q: My camper has been vaccinated. Do they still need to be tested?
A: Yes, they will still need to be tested as Cross Roads has campers not yet eligible to be vaccinated and there is, to our knowledge, at this time, no conclusive proof that vaccinated individuals cannot still contract and transmit the illness.
Q: My camper is less than 5 years old (Family Camp). Do they still need to be tested?
A: No, we are not testing those under 5 years old.
Q: My camper is coming for two consecutive weeks. Is pre-arrival testing required for both sessions?
A: No, the pre-arrival test is only required before the first session. The upon-arrival and third-day tests will still be completed. Please let DUC know about your camper’s multiple sessions during your telemedicine visit.
Q: What happens if a camper tests positive upon arrival? On the third day?
A: Those testing positive upon arrival will not be allowed to attend camp. Those testing positive on the third day will be quarantined and the parent/guardian called to take them home. This situation may result in the whole cabin being sent home.
Q: What happens if a camper shows symptoms of illness while at camp?
A: Campers showing symptoms that me be attributed to COVID will have a rapid test administered by the camp nurse.
