Cuyamaca also has specific covid requirements for families to be aware of:
Pre-Camp Negative COVID-19 Test Requirement
Before coming to camp, each student, regardless of vaccination status, is required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR or antigen test or provide proof of a positive COVID-19 test or diagnosis from within the last 90 days, as follows:
- PCR tests taken with within 72 hours before arriving at camp (typically between 10:00-11:00 a.m. on a Monday)
- Rapid antigen tests taken within 24 hours before arriving at camp (typically between 10:00-11:00 a.m. on a Monday)
- Over the counter (home) tests are only accepted if conducted at the child’s school in the presence of school personnel and test results are verified by school personnel
- Students who have tested positive for COVID-19 within 90 days of arriving at COS and can provide proof of a positive test result are exempt from pre-camp testing
- Any student within Days 1-5 of a positive COVID-19 test or diagnosis or who actively exhibits any COVID-19 symptoms must stay home
- Any student within Days 6-10 of a positive COVID-19 test or diagnosis may attend COS as a day student (but may not spend the night at COS) if they have a negative test on or after Day 5 and their symptoms have improved and they are fever-free for at least 24 hours with no feverreducing medications. For the safety of the other participants and COS staff, they must wear a mask at all times while around others, including outside, through Day 10. This precludes them from sleeping at COS until Day 11, at which time they may fully participate in the COS program if their symptoms have improved, and they are fever-free for at least 24 hours with no fever reducing medication. Transportation to and from COS is the responsibility of the student’s parent/guardian. Arrangements will be made for them to safely eat meals away from others.
Any participating student who is not able to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test, rapid antigen test, or positive COVID-19 test from within the last 90 days, will not be allowed to board the bus or attend camp until such time as proof can be provided. Once negative COVID-19 test results do become available, the parent/guardian may call to arrange to bring their child to COS for the remainder of the week, provided the child is not within Days 1-5 of a positive COVID-19 test and has not had any COVID-19 related symptoms within the last 24 hours.
- If a student is allowed to board the bus and arrives at COS without proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test or rapid antigen test taken within the timeframe noted above, or proof of positive COVID-19 test results from within 90 days of arriving at COS, the student may be sent back home on the bus or will be placed in isolation (with appropriate adult supervision) and the student’s parent/guardian will be contacted to pick up their child immediately
