Point 2 – Makes sense, but we will be avoiding the old foam balls that lost part of their smooth coating. Exposed foam will be hard to clean.
Point 3 – Our church assures us that their cleaning staff will be wiping down everything before and after we use the basement. Should we wipe down everything as we arrive just to be sure?
Point 5 – Sanitizing does seem to be a priority. I recognize that we are not doing it to satisfy ourselves, but to satisfy the parents, the church and the authorities. We trust the Lord, but He expects us to obey those He has placed in authority over us. (There are exceptions, but not with this right now.)
Point 7 – No All-Nighters – Those are the rules, so your list of alternatives is appreciated. We’ve gone canoeing and done AirSoft. Frisbee golf is next, then hiking. we’re thinking about tag with pool noodles. We will be doing as much as we can outside whenever the weather is good. Dark and cold can work if we plan for it.
Point 8 – Social-Distancing – In most places, it’s the law. In my province, it’s going to be the law until a vaccine is found or herd-immunity is achieved.
Point 9 – We will be encasing our water fountain in a plastic bag and duct tape.
Point 12 – Absolutely.
Gloves and sanitizer are a must for leaders, especially when cleaning up. But if we are assured that our equipment won’t be used in the next three days, any viruses will die on their surfaces without us doing anything.
We are waiting on our church to come up with a policy on building use. We are part of the church and need them to take the lead. I would like them to train us on how to sanitize the facilities and equipment, including the toilets, and not just say, “You’ve got to sanitize everything.”
One of the things we are doing now with our Battalion is meeting on Zoom (actually Discord) every second week and doing something together in-person on the other weeks. This puts 14 days between in-person meeting, so if someone does show signs after the meeting, we will have had the requisite 14 days of isolation from the other guys in the group before meeting in-person again.
