Updated COVID Practices
 
Participants are encouraged, but not required to wear a mask at the TSC or our satellite sites. Staff, volunteers, vendors and contractors are required to wear a mask when it is not possible to be at least 6 feet away from each other.
 
To be respectful of each other, please continue to follow these guidelines: 
a.    Do not attend an activity if you are sick or have symptoms which include a fever, cough and shortness of breath.
b.    Practice social distancing when possible.
c.    Wash your hands frequently and avoid touching your face.
 
If you test positive for COVID-19 and have attended a TSC activity within the past 14 days, please notify a TSC staff person ASAP. TSC staff will notify others in the class to the best of our ability. Thus, it is imperative that everyone scan or sign in for every session.
 
If you think you have been Exposed to COVID-19 which, according to the CDC, means in close contact with a person (within approximately six feet) with a symptomatic lab-confirmed COVID-19 case for a prolonged period of time (usually more than 15 minutes), please refer to these actions: 
Fully vaccinated individuals:
·  No quarantine requirement
·  Is recommended to get tested 3-5 days after exposure.
·  Must continue to monitor for symptoms
Unvaccinated individuals must quarantine as described below and may not attend a TSC activity until the following criteria is met:
 o  With testing: Quarantine for seven (7) days after the last contact with the individual testing positive for COVID-19 and receive a negative COVID-19 test (test must occur on day 5 or later after the exposure). You may return after receiving a negative COVID-19 test and following 7 days.
 o  Without testing: Quarantine for 14 days after the last contact with the individual testing positive for COVID-19. You may return after 14 days.
If you have symptoms – do not attend a class or activity.
 
Thank you for following these guidelines in the best interest of trying to keep everyone as safe as possible, and maintain a healthy environment at the TSC and our program sites.
