Wellness Checks / Screening

  • All staff members are wellness checked before their shift.
  • All participants will complete a health check each day and this will be confirmed upon arrival at the gymnasium.
  • We have the right to deny entry to any individual who has any of the symptoms outlined in the COVID-19 Reference Document for Symptoms on the Ministry of Health’s COVID-19 website, or who has come in close contact with a person with symptoms of or confirmed COVID-19 in the past 14 days.
  • Parents are asked to not send their children to session if they, or a member of their household, have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days and are to remain home until a negative test or confirmation from their doctor that it is safe to return to ABA sessions. 
  • Parents are encouraged to seek medical support and/or COVID-19 testing if their child or a member of their household shows symptoms and to remain home until they receive a negative test or the confirmation from their doctor that it is safe to return to ABA sessions. 
  • In order to assist with contract tracing if the need arises, we ask parents to email: coachloucks@rogers.com to report absences and to include a note if the absence is related to COVID-19 symptoms. 
  • Alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol content will be placed at all screening stations and entrances to the gym.
  • Daily records will be kept to indicate anyone (e.g., participants, parent/guardian, staff and visitors) entering the program setting who stays for 15 minutes or longer. These records will be kept up-to-date and available to facilitate contact tracing in the event of a confirmed COVID-19 case or outbreak. 
  • Participants or staff who have been exposed to a confirmed case of COVID-19 will be excluded from the program setting for 14 days.
  • If a participant begins to experience symptoms of COVID-19 while attending any session, they’ll be immediately separated from others in a supervised area until they can go home. In addition, where possible, any staff providing care to the participant will be maintaining a distance of at least 2 metres. 
  • The local public health unit will then be contacted to notify them of a potential case, and we’ll notify all parties involved.
  • Staff will wash hands and / or sanitize before and after each session.
  • Hand sanitizing stations will be available by entrance and exits of the building/gymnasium. Participants will be encourage to wash hands and /or sanitize before and after each session.

  • Minimizing the sharing and frequency of touching objects, equipment, surfaces, and other personal items.
Physical Distancing of at least 2 metres between participants, parents/guardians and staff by: 
  • Maintaining consistent cohorts throughout each week.
  • Incorporating more individual activities or activities that encourage more space between participants.
  • Ensuring participants have their own individual, snacks, and water bottles that will be separated from others, and not shared between cohorts.
  • Pick-up and drop-off procedures to support physical distancing and cohorting using strategies such as, but not limited to: avoiding group transportation, separate cohort entrances, having one designated parent/guardian pick-up and drop-off each participant, staggering entry, and limiting the numbers of people in entry areas.
