Throughout the summer, most community activities will be limited to outdoor, open air environments (i.e. parks) where social distancing can be best maintained. This will be supplemented with remote learning activities or table top type activities in The Meeting Place. A full weekly schedule will be sent at a later date, but these three activities will be the mainstays within the schedule.
Our goal is to create stable groups within the schedule to help with contact tracing and as a best practice for mitigation. This means we will be assigning participants to a set group of peers, staff, rooms, and schedules as much as possible. We do not anticipate being able have Snacks 'n' Stuff or the businesses at the Rhode Island Veterans Home in operation until at least after the summer.
Any activity outside of The Meeting Place that is not able to be outdoors will have a maximum of one (1) staff and three (3) participants. This max ratio will only occur in the event that a van is available and would allow for proper social distancing in the vehicle. In a car, there will only be one (1) staff to one (1) participant. The group of staff and participants must also be made up of those within their larger stable groups. Any food needed during these activities will consist of take out, no indoors or outdoor dine-in activities will be allowed.
