Health & Safety is Our Priority
All CDC and LA County Public Health Department requirements and recommendations will be followed, including but not limited to:
Social Distancing Expectations
We expect all members to abide by CDC social distancing regulations. All pod stations are set up so that members have their own designated space distanced 6ft or more from other members. Staff have designed programs and activities to promote 6ft separation.
Drop-off / Pick-up
Please note, all members are required to wear a mask. The club will provide masks in an emergency to members as needed, but it will be the responsibility of each parent to provide a face mask for their children for the school year. If your child is medically exempt from wearing a mask, parents must provide documentation in writing.
APPROVED masks must be a minimum of two layers of cotton material or a standard “surgical” mask. Gaiters and bandanas are NOT allowed. Masks with “one-way” valves are not allowed. If your child can blow out a candle that is 10-12 inches away with their mask on, it is not sufficient for use at BGCF.
Students need to bring their own computer/tablet, charging cord, and earphones with built-in microphone. We are recommending sound reduction earphones, but they are not required. They should also bring everything needed for school that day, such as textbooks, notebooks, and completed assignments.
Water + Lunch + Snack
BGCF will be providing lunch and afternoon snack to those students who need it. If you want to send food with your child, everything must be packed in disposable containers and in a clear plastic bag. We will not refrigerate food or warm food at the Club. Outside food may NOT be delivered to the Club.
Water bottles are recommended, water stations will be available for staff to refill members’ water bottles. Drinking fountains will not be in use
Hand Washing / Sanitizing
Upon arrival to the Club and prior to eating, members will wash their hands thoroughly (for at least 20 seconds). Hand sanitizer is used when necessary.
High Fives / Hugs / Handshakes
We have enacted a no-handshaking/high fives/no-hugging policy, in order to reduce skin-to-skin contact and/or close contact.
Program Areas / Surfaces
Staff will disinfect program areas and surfaces routinely throughout the day.
All restrooms are closely monitored to ensure hand soap is always available. One student will be allowed in the restroom at a time.
