While Visiting DCYC:
- FACE COVERINGS REQUIRED TO ENTER ANY INDOOR FACILITIES OR INTERFACE WITH STAFF
All persons over the age of ten (10), including members, visitors, invited guests, and contractors, who enter the premises must wear a face covering over their nose and mouth, such as a homemade mask, scarf, bandana, or handkerchief:
- All member’s interactions with staff will require both parties to be wearing a face covering. No matter the location.
- The requirement of a face
covering does not apply if covering the nose and mouth poses a
significant mental or physical health risk to the individual.
- The requirement of a face covering also does not apply when an individual is consuming a food or beverage.
- SOCIAL DISTANCING PROTOCOLS.
Even with the use of appropriate face coverings, individuals should maintain six feet of social distancing whenever possible.
- Employees and volunteers should not work within six (6) feet of one another, except to the extent necessary to provide services.
- Patrons should maintain six (6) feet of separation from other individuals outside their household, to the extent feasible while wearing masks indoors.
- Patrons on the grounds but outdoors must also maintain six (6) feet of separation from other individuals outside of their household.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) is an illness caused by a virus that can spread from person to person. • The virus that causes COVID-19 is a new coronavirus that has spread throughout the world. • COVID-19 symptoms can range from mild (or no symptoms) to severe illness.
You can become infected by coming into close contact (about 6 feet or two arm lengths) with a person who has COVID-19. COVID-19 is primarily spread from person to person. • You can become infected from respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. • You may also be able to get it by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it, and then by touching your mouth, nose, or eyes.
Based on currently available information and clinical expertise, older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
Based on what we know now, those at high-risk for severe illness from COVID-19 are:
People 65 years and older
People of all ages with underlying medical conditions, particularly if not well controlled, including:
- People with chronic lung disease or moderate to severe asthma
- People who have serious heart conditions
- People who are immunocompromised
Many conditions can cause a person to be immunocompromised, including cancer treatment, smoking, bone marrow or organ transplantation, immune deficiencies, poorly controlled HIV or AIDS, and prolonged use of corticosteroids and other immune weakening medications
- People with severe obesity (body mass index [BMI] of 40 or higher)
- People with diabetes
- People with chronic kidney disease undergoing dialysis
- People with liver disease
On April 3, 2020 Governor Abbott placed the State of Texas on a Stay at Home order. DCYC took appropriate measures to prevent the congregation of members and essentially closed DCYC.
On April 27, 2020 Governor Abbot announced plans to re-open Texas in phases
This document was created by Eve Sheppard, MSN, RN, CCM, CIC. She serves as the Fleet Co-Surgeon and is certified in epidemiology and infection control. The plan was approved by, Tim Johnson, the Commodore, and shall serve as a guide to re-open DCYC for use in a phased approach to help ensure the health and safety of members. There are some important points for each member to consider before returning to DCYC. Being on the premises of DCYC is optional and those who have health concerns or are considered at high risk for COVID-19 should chose to stay away until all cause for concern has passed. While DCYC has carefully planned and considered the potential health risks there is no way all risk for transmission of the virus can be mitigated.
People with these symptoms or combinations of symptoms may have COVID-19 and should NOT visit DCYC until they have been 72 hours without any symptoms.
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Or at least two of these symptoms:
- Fever (>100)
- Repeated shaking with chills
- Muscle pain
- Sore throat
- New loss of taste or smell
On May 1st, 2020 members may begin using DCYC grounds again with some important risk reduction strategies.
- Please note, public health guidance cannot anticipate every unique situation. Individuals should stay informed and take actions based on common sense and wise judgment that will protect health.
- There is minimal risk of virus transmission while outside. Members may use the patio and deck as well as the grounds and are encouraged to maintain social distancing (6 feet).
- Groups of 4 (individuals who do not live in the same house) may participate in sports activities.
- Any time individuals enter DCYC house to use the restroom they should don a mask or other face covering and maintain social distancing.
- Do not use the clubhouse for social events at this time.
Clean Hands Often
Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds. Always wash immediately after removing gloves and after contact with a person who is sick.
Hand sanitizer: If soap and water are not readily available and hands are not visibly dirty, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. However, if hands are visibly dirty, always wash hands with soap and water.
Additional key times to clean hands include:
- After blowing one’s nose, coughing, or sneezing
- After using the restroom
- Before eating or preparing food
- After contact with animals or pets
- Before and after providing routine care for another person who needs assistance (e.g. a child)
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Cleaning and disinfection of indoor and outdoor areas
The virus that causes COVID-19 can be killed by using the right products. The EPA has compiled a list of disinfectant products that can be used against COVID-19, including ready-to-use sprays,
concentrates, and wipes. Each product has been shown to be effective against viruses that are harder to kill than viruses like the one that causes COVID-19.
Cleaning and disinfection practices.
- Normal routine cleaning with soap and water will decrease how much of the virus is on surfaces and objects, which reduces the risk of exposure.
- Disinfection using EPA-approved disinfectants against COVID-19 external icon can also help reduce the risk. Frequent disinfection of surfaces and objects touched by multiple people is important.
Outdoor areas generally require normal routine cleaning and do not require disinfection. Spraying disinfectant on sidewalks and in parks is not an efficient use of disinfectant supplies and has not been proven to reduce the risk of COVID-19 to the public.
The targeted use of disinfectants can be done effectively, efficiently and safely on outdoor hard surfaces and objects frequently touched by multiple people.
There is no evidence that the virus that causes COVID-19 can spread directly to humans from water in pools. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (for example, with chlorine or bromine) should kill the virus that causes COVID-19.
Unoccupied indoor areas that have vacant for 7 days or more, will only need normal routine cleaning to reopen the area. This is because the virus that causes COVID-19 has not been shown to survive on surfaces longer than this time.
This plan is subject to change as dictated by public health events. The second phase of re-opening DCYC will align with guidance from Governor Abbott when the next guidelines are released on or about 5/18/2020.
