Hello GSA family!
Ash and I have to take small pause on GSA.
We’ve had quite a few people reach out to us who have tested positive with Covid.
We’re taking a small break to re-evaluate our Covid response within the GSA.
This might mean a few different ways we do things within the GSA over the next few weeks.
We will be back in person very soon!!!
The following are of our current Covid recommendations within our groups.
We feel that with the rise in case numbers, and the rapid spread throughout our communities, we need to increase our proactive approach.
With reduced testing for the general public and lack of information on where positivity rates are in our community, strengthening our response in our group is the safest option for our youth, their families, and our widespread support systems.
Some of the ideas we’ve had to increase the in-person safety for our meetings, are as follows:
•decreased meeting sizes
•move meetings back outdoors (last resort).
•re-emphasize continually masking
(especially once finished with a snack).
•snacks at a separate table from GSA group meetings.
•breaking the large group into small groups that can distance easier.
•maintain the distancing rules that seem to be forgotten when the large group is visiting.
•rotate smaller groups between tables, so each group can visit safely
•creating an online health check-in.
•removing snacks from GSA
If you have additional ideas to increase the safety in our GSA, please let us know so we can take this information to our group!
