Supporting camps during COVID-19

Provincial announcement: All adults aged 18 and over are now eligible to receive the bivalent booster dose. The new paediatric Pfizer vaccine is also vaccine available for children aged between six months to under five years old. 

Second dose appointments for children six months to five years are now available:  An interval of eight weeks is recommended between dose 1 and 2 to maximize the duration of vaccine protection.  Appointments are available for booking through the online provincial booking system.

⚠ If you have come in contact with someone who has symptoms or has tested positive for COVID-19 on a PCR test or Rapid Antigen Test (RAT), visit our isolation instructions for COVID-19 web page. Take this self-assessment if you have any symptoms of illness or tested positive for COVID-19.

This web page was developed to provide easily accessible information and recommendations to support campoperators in transitioning to mitigation and symptom-based management of COVID-19.  

Keeping COVID-19 transmission low in the community is important to help prevent the introduction of the virus into settings such as camps, schools and child care. The primary goal is to make camps as safe as possible. Parents, OPH and camp operators each have a role to play in keeping children as safe as possible.
