Aquatic Training Courses

COVID-19

We cannot guarantee you will not contract COVID-19. If you choose to send your child or register yourself in 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 approching 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.
