There has been such an influx of interest in the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the last few days and how it will impact our daily lives. For Camp Thurman, we are trying to understand how this will affect our employees, families and future guests. We are looking at necessary adjustments to ensure that our environment remains fun, yet safe for all of our campers and families.
The safety and security of our guests has been and always will be paramount to the ministry of Camp Thurman. With that in mind, we have made several moves in our response to the threat of the coronavirus. We are taking special precautions in the cleaning and sanitizing of our facilities and equipment. We have increased our number of sanitation stations and cleaning liturgy around our facility.
Camp Thurman will be in complete compliance with protocols set by the local, state, and federal health officials. We are actively monitoring the recommendations by both the Tarrant County Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We will be communicating with our current staff and future staff about the importance of proper hand washing, staying home if they feel sick, and proper coughing technique.
There are some precautions that we can all take in order to promote a safe and healthy environment. Here are some basic guidelines we would like to encourage our guests to follow:
- Wash your hands, frequently and meticulously
- Please do not become dependant on sanitizer alone to disinfect your hands
- Try to limit touching your face and mouth area
- Follow proper sneezing/ coughing etiquette
- Do not share cups, water bottles, snacks, ect.
- Avoid contact with people who are sick
- Stay home if you are sick
- Please don’t participate if you are at high risk of serious illness from COVID-19
We will continue to track the situation at hand and provide you with updated information as it is appropriate. As Christ Followers we know our Father is bigger than any virus or crisis that our country is facing. Please join us as we pray for our leaders’ decisions, churches responses, schools closings and families affected.
In His Service,
