From the State of CT, it is mandatory that all parents read and understand the following requirements:

1. Groups of children will remain in separate rooms (areas of camp) while in attendance.
2. No more than ten children will be in any room at one time even if there are half walls, half doors or other physical barriers within such room separating groups of children.
3. Groups of children will not come in contact with other groups of children while in attendance, including at the beginning and end of the day, while engaged in outdoor play and during arrival and departure times.
4. Enhanced cleaning will be performed throughout the day, in particular in common spaces such as bathrooms, outdoor space and doorways/hallways when used by different groups.
5. Staffing patterns will minimize movement of staff between groups of children throughout the day. All staff have been trained on the policies and procedures that ensure the above conditions.
