Dear Silver Bay friends:
The CDC’s recent update, which can be found HERE, recommends that fully vaccinated people wear a mask in public indoor settings if they are in an area of “substantial or high transmission.”
Silver Bay is committed to creating a safe and enjoyable experience for all of our guests and program participants. Our operating plan adheres to the NYS regulations and guidelines, as outlined in the NY Forward Reopening Plan and incorporates industry standards and best practices.
We are asking for your help by following the below guidelines:
- If you are vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus, you are not required to wear a mask on the Silver Bay campus.
- Per NYS, unvaccinated individuals continue to be responsible for wearing masks, in accordance with federal CDC guidance, which is on “the honor system.”
- Please wash your hands often and take advantage of hand sanitizers on property.
- We ask that you enjoy our program areas and adhere to the guidelines that we have set up to provide a safe and fun experience.
- Please stay home if you or a member of your group is sick, or showing or feeling any COVID-19 symptoms, such as fever, coughing, and/or trouble breathing.
- If you or a member of your group becomes sick, is showing or feeling any COVID-19 symptoms while at Silver Bay we ask that you and your group self-isolate in your accommodation, contact your physician and seek appropriate medical attention. We also ask that you contact the front desk to make us aware of the situation so we can follow the appropriate reporting procedures as outlined by the NYSDOH (New York State Department of Health). Please note that medical care is not available at the Silver Bay campus and medical emergency care is provided through 911 services.
For those who have children enrolled in day camp, separate communication regarding day camp guidelines will be sent to participants.
Finally, as you know we are navigating a very dynamic environment as state-issued guidelines continue to change and may change again. We ask for all to show grace, gratitude and patience this summer as we gather together and enjoy the very special place that is Silver Bay.
Enjoy Your Stay,
The Silver Bay Team
