The Adaptive Recreation Center does consider health and safety to be very important. We strongly recommend that all participants be vaccinated. We will do our best to abide by the DSHS – Day Habilitation Site Checklist.
The virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to others by infected persons who have few or no symptoms. Even if an infected person is only mildly ill, the people they spread it to may become seriously ill or even die. The individuals who attend these day habilitation sites are considered at higher risk of contracting COVID-19 than the general population because many reside in group settings and are at higher risk of developing complications if they contract COVID-19 due to pre-existing health conditions. Because of the hidden nature of this threat, everyone should rigorously follow the practices specified in these protocols, all of which facilitate a safe and measured reopening of Texas. The virus that causes COVID-19 is still circulating in our communities. We should continue to observe practices that protect everyone, including those who are most vulnerable and will expect masks to be worn in accordance with these guidelines.
Our operational guidelines will require us to perform health screenings, we will inquire about vaccination status, will send people home when they are ill, will social distance and will wear masks in accordance with these guidelines. We may make adjustments as DSHS and CDC guidance are updated.
