WOW is concerned about carrying on its outdoor activities in a time when the proliferation of COVID 19 infections continues, notwithstanding the many measures we have taken, guided in part by the state and federal government disease control agencies.  While many mandatory state policies have been lifted, WOW, as an outdoor organization is focused on a healthy community, and believes that we still need to maintain a policy to minimize the spread of COVID among our outdoor program participants. We believe that these precautions will minimize the possible spread of COVID, thereby resulting in a safer, satisfying experience for all. We sincerely appreciate your adherence to this policy and look forward to sharing our educational agenda with you.

As such, at this point, realizing that all have had the opportunity for protection, all participants for upcoming programs are kindly requested to comply with the following:

Vaccination.   We expect all participants to be vaccinated.  This is the single most important part of COVID prevention/mitigation.  All participants must show proof of vaccination upon event check-in.

Masking.    We expect all participants to have .N-95 or equivalent masks on their persons during the entire session.  If participants feel distancing isn’t adequate, they are encouraged to wear a mask for personal safety. We will provide masks to those that do not have their own prior to entry.

Distancing.   Whenever possible, WOW will attempt to hold events totally outdoors. During an event, participants are encouraged to practice social distancing (6 feet separation).  Please note that some WOW class settings will require closer than 6 ft. between participants (i.e. archery, fly tying, weaving, demonstration or lecture sessions)

Symptoms.    Any participant experiencing possible COVID symptoms such as fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea, should not attend the event.

 Testing.    Any person who  has tested positive for COVID within 10 days of the event and has not had a follow up negative test cannot be admitted to an event.
