Town Hall Meeting - January 27, 2021

ACA shared recent developments on COVID-19 planning for camps.  Key takeaways from ACA’s recent COVID-19-related research studies were shared. Additionally, key updates to the Environmental Health & Engineering authored Field Guide for Camps were introduced as well as current news on medical testing options and vaccine access expectations.

The panel  included medical professionals, public health professionals, research scientists and both day and resident camp professionals who successfully operated in summer ’20.  We encourage camp and out of school time professionals to attend as well as public health officials.  There is no cost to attend.
