Connect Youth

What to Expect: COVID-19 Precautions


IN THE Youth Centre:

  • Please practice physical distancing of 2 meters from any others that are not part of your cohort or family, if not wearing a mask. 
  • We encourage waving, air hugs, and/or air high fives to welcome your friends.
  • Your temperature is expected to be below 38 degrees Celsius in order to attend and will be taken before you enter the building.
  • Masks are a personal choice, they are not mandatory to attend. We encourage you to bring your own mask. You will notice that our staff and volunteers will be equipped with masks. Please respect the choice of everyone attending. 
  • The youth centre and high volume areas (ie. door handles, washrooms) will be sanitized between youth nights to ensure a clean and safe environment.
  • Since meeting indoors, group size will not exceed 50 people (including leaders and staff). Because of this, pre-registration is required.
  • Any food or drink is no longer self-serve but will be individually packaged and handed out by a volunteer.

BEFORE ATTENDING, PLEASE CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING:

  • Do you have a cough, fever, shortness of breath, runny nose, or sore throat? Have you been in contact with confirmed COVID-19 cases in the last 14 days? If you answered yes to either of these questions, please stay home and fill out the government of Alberta's self-assessment here.
  • Have you traveled internationally in the last 14 days or been in close contact with someone who has? If so, please stay home as per Alberta Health Services (AHS) guidelines.
  • All youth are welcome to our events and we look forward to seeing you again. However, we want to make sure that your health and safety come first! If you have a compromised immune system or are vulnerable to COVID-19, we encourage you to be educated on our guidelines and AHS recommendations before making the decision on whether or not to attend.

*Anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms are not to attend. If you are at a youth event and present symptoms, you will be asked to self-isolate until someone is able to pick you up.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Your personal information provided at registration will only be shared with AHS in the case of an outbreak for COVID-19 contact tracing purposes.
