Mask Information

Face coverings have been mandated by the state of California for whenever you will be near someone you do not live with. Staff and children must wear face masks at all times. We are firm on this policy for the safety of staff and participants.

If your child has a medical need that prohibits them from wearing a mask, the attached form is required AND the child must wear a face shield.  We are firm on this policy for the safety of staff and participants. 


We cannot guarantee your child will not contract COVID-19. If you choose to send your child to a CARD program, you are doing so with the understanding that there is potential risk of exposure.

Should we be made aware of a participant or staff member testing positive, we will work with Butte County Public Health to determine notification and next steps. Each situation is different and will need to be managed on a case by case basis. Responses may range from self-quarantine of those directly exposed to closure of the program for a specified time.

  • Participants must stay home if they show any symptoms of illness including fever, cough or flu-like symptoms.
  • At check-in, parents and participants will use hand sanitizer before approaching the table.
  • Once the participant is signed-in, they will be directed to their group. Parents may not enter the program facilities.
  • Due to social distancing guidelines, enrollment in most programs has been reduced.
