In addition to the above, we plan to:
- Administer a second COVID test on arrival at camp
- Administer a third COVID test taken 5-7 days after arriving at camp.
- We plan to administer a fourth test shortly before the end of each session to make sure we are sending campers and staff home as healthy as they came to camp.
- It is possible those time frames will change and narrow– we’ll keep you updated.
The tests administered at Glen Brook will be PCR tests, also known as molecular tests, which detect the virus’ presence. These will be mid-turbinate or shallow nasal swabs, but will not be the deep nasal swab.
Additional tests would be administered if a camper or staff exhibited COVID symptoms. Our healthcare staff will be able to administer tests on-site in Glen Brook’s health room.
