  • Check in will be drop off only. Only campers will be allowed into the campgrounds area.
  • At the Health Center by the parking area, trained staff will ask the family the following three questions developed by the Monterey County Health Department about the child’s possible exposure and/or contact with COVID-19 and anyone with COVID-19 symptoms in the last 14 days:
    • Does anyone in your household including the camper have a fever of 100.4 or over?
    • Have medications been administered to your child in the past 24 hours to reduce fever?
    • Has any member of your household been sick with a common cold or any other contagious illness in the past week?
    • Has your camper been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 7 days?
    • Then a Camper temperature check
