Participation Guidelines When Illness Occurs

To prevent the spread of contagious illnesses, it is recommended that participants refrain from attending programs when any of the following conditions exist:

    1. Fever of 100 degrees or higher.

    2. Vomiting within the last 24 hours.

    3. Persistent diarrhea in conjunction with other symptoms.

    4. Contagious rash or a rash of unknown origin.

    5. Persistent cough and/or cold symptoms.

    6. “Pink eye” (conjunctivitis) or discharge from the eye.

    7. Symptoms of mumps, measles, chicken pox, strep throat, flu, impetigo, coxsackie virus, head lice, mites, and ringworm.

    8. Runny nose with yellow or green discharge, which indicates infection.

    9. Fatigue, due to illness, that will hinder participation and enjoyment of the program.

Please notify the SSSRA office if the participant contracts any contagious illness that will affect his/her attendance at the program. Participants should return to programs at the recommendation of the doctor, or, if not under a doctor’s care, when the symptoms have clearly passed.
