WE are delighted to re-open our Summer camp this July.
In the event of MuddyBoost Camp being advised to close by Public Health England due to the Coronavirus, a credit note will be given for the days that we are closed
At MuddyBoots Camps, we take health and safety seriously. In light of the current outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we have put together some information, all of which is based on Public Health England advice.
MuddyBoots Camps have put stringent measures in place to ensure your children can continue to enjoy their holidays with us in a safe environment. We believe these measures should give parents the comfort and assurances you need to continue booking your children into MuddyBoots Camps. We have adopted the following special measures in response to the Coronavirus outbreak:
What we will do if someone develops symptoms at MuddyBoots Camps;
If a child is awaiting collection, they will be moved, if possible and if appropriate, to a room where they can be isolated behind a closed door. We will be mindful of individual children’s needs – for example it would not be appropriate for younger children to be alone without adult supervision. Ideally, a window will be opened for ventilation. If it is not possible to isolate them, we will move them to an area which is at least 2 metres away from other people. The member of staff supervising the child will wear PPE and the area will be deep cleaned once the child has been collected.
If they need to go to the bathroom while waiting to be collected, they will use a separate bathroom if possible. The bathroom will be cleaned and disinfected using standard cleaning products before being used by anyone else.
If they need clinical advice, they (staff member, parent or guardian) should go online to NHS 111 (or call 111 if they don’t have internet access). In an emergency, call 999 if they are seriously ill or injured or their life is at risk. Do not visit the GP, pharmacy, urgent care centre or a hospital.
If a member of staff has helped someone who was taken unwell COVID-19 symptoms, they do not need to go home unless they develop symptoms themselves. They should wash their hands thoroughly for 20 seconds after any contact with someone who is unwell and remove and dispose of their PPE.
In most cases, closure of MuddyBoots Camps will not be needed but this will be ours, along with advice from Head Office, decision based on various factors such as establishment size and risk of further spread.
This is a fast-evolving situation and we will monitor and share any new advice at the earliest opportunity.
Whilst we understand that the current situation is causing concern, there is no need for alarm. You do not need to keep your children away from a setting unless they have been to, or have been in contact with someone who has been infected.
