All Encounter campers, staff, Exec Members, and guests will wear face masks at all times, including inside and outside (when not possible to socially distance). Encounter will follow the masking policy outlined by the University of Oklahoma at ou.edu/together.
OU masking policy states that: “All individuals in indoor University facilities must wear fabric or disposable surgical-style masks that cover their nose and mouth. Bandanas, and scarves, gaiters, buffs, and the like are not acceptable. Non-medical grade masks that have exhalation valves with or without filters may not be worn on unless a surgical style mask is worn over it.”
In addition to wearing face masks, all Encounter members and guests must pass temperature checks twice a day (any temperature greater than 100 degrees Fahrenheit is considered a fever and the Encounter member or guest may be asked to leave).
Encounter retains the right to dismiss any Encounter camper, staff member, or guest who displays symptoms of Covid-19 (not limited to but including: a fever greater than 100 degrees, chills, cough, loss of taste and smell, fatigue, and vomiting).
Sanitation stations will be available throughout the retreat center, and camp activities will be designed to accommodate social distancing as much as possible.
We believe that observing these Covid-19 safety protocols are the best way for our Encounter family to love our brothers and sisters, and display the love of Christ to the vulnerable, sick, and weak in our community. Non adherence to Encounter Covid-19 protocols is grounds for removal from the Encounter Retreat at any time.
