WOW is concerned about carrying on its outdoor activities in a time when
strains of COVID 19 infections continue, 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 smart decisions will minimize the possible spread of COVID
and other illnesses, thereby resulting in a safer, satisfying experience for

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:

Vaccinations – We expect – at least anticipate – participants have been
vaccinated. At this time Washington state guidelines do not require proof.

Masks – WOW will have N-95 or equivalent masks available upon event
entry and throughout the event If participants feel distancing isn’t
adequate, they are encouraged to wear a mask for personal safety.

Distancing – participants should rely on their level of personal safety.
WOW will attempt to hold events outdoors, but participants are
encouraged to practice social distancing (6 foot separation) to satisfy their
comfort level.  Please note that some WOW class settings will require
closer than 6 ft. between participants (basket weaving, lectures, cooking
skills, etc.).

Symptoms.    Any participant feeling sick cannot attend a WOW event.
Collective symptoms such as fever or chills, cough, body aches, headache,
sore throat, sinus or chest congestion or nausea should not be passed on
to others. Even if you take a Covid test and it is negative, everyone
appreciates you not bringing and sharing a cold, flu, or stomach bug. Stay
home and contact us.

We sincerely appreciate your adherence to this policy. We look forward to
sharing our educational agenda with you.
