COVID Guidelines under Level Clear
Highlands is committed to the safety of children, our guests and our staff.
Highlands will continue a high level of cleaning and sanitization in all areas. To allow sufficient time for cleaning, we will maintain check in at 4:00 PM and check out at 10:00 AM – at this time we are not able to offer early arrivals or late departures.
Boulder County Public Health no longer requires masks outdoors.
Unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated individuals must continue to wear masks indoors except when seated and eating. It is the responsibility of group leaders to determine the vaccination status of their participants.
When licensed child care groups are on site: “Masking is still required regardless of vaccination status in all indoor spaces in schools and school buildings (including extracurricular activities), childcare centers and indoor children’s camps, regardless of whether a license is required for such activities. This includes all children, visitors, and staff over the age of ten that can medically tolerate a face covering.” (Kara Kaiser, May 21, 2021)
When Illness Affects Your Group!
As a courtesy to all, if you are not feeling well please do not come to Highlands.
Highlands is very aware of the many illnesses people may be concerned about during this time of year including, but not limited to, influenza and COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We have always made sanitization and disinfection a high priority at Highlands. During this time of year many of our guest groups stay in the Retreat Center which makes addressing the issue of illness mitigation a little easier since there are many hand washing stations available in the Retreat Center. As an extra effort during this time of increased cases of illness, Highlands is taking the following steps:
We have issued instructions to all staff to mitigate the possible spread of the virus.
Housekeeping has increased the frequency of using disinfectants in restrooms, on door handles and light switches.
We have placed hand sanitizer bottles in key locations for the convenience of our guests, however, please remember hand sanitizer is not as effective as washing with soap and warm/hot water for at least 20 seconds.
If a member of your group should become sick, we have purchased a temporal thermometer to be used by staff and guest leadership while at Highlands.
We have face masks for guests who may have forgotten their's.
We continue to review our protocols as situations develop.
You can take extra steps to mitigate the spread of illness by:
Washing your hands frequently and thoroughly for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm/hot water.
If you are sneezing or coughing please do so into your elbow, and wash your hands after.
If you or your child have not been fever free for at least 24 hours please stay home.
