The safety and well being of our staff and members is our highest priority and for those reasons due to the Pandemic we have established the following COVID-19 Safety Protocol:

1) All Staff and youth must wear a mask at all times.
2) All must practice safe social distancing, stay 6' from each other at all times. 
3) Everyone must wash hands before entering the LYC facility, and after using the restroom.
4) Everyone must sanitize their hands after each activity, and as needed.
5) All youth must be registered to participate each quarter. (Due to space restrictions we are serving only 24 youth a quarter. If we reach registration capacity, youth will be added to a waiting list.)
6) Youth will be assigned to an "Ohana Group" each quarter so that risk of exposure is minimized.
7) Temperature checks will be conducted at our designated sign in station. If a child marks a temperature of 100.4 we will call to notify parents and ask that they be taken to the doctor. Youth will not be allowed to return to the LYC without a doctors note saying they were cleared to come back to the LYC.
8) Youth will not be allowed to sign in and out multiple times through out the day. Once the youth has signed out, it will be for the day.

1) Staff will be wiping down high traffic areas ( bathrooms after each child's use, door knobs, handles, keyboards, electronics...), multiple times during program hours to maintain a clean and sanitary environment.
2) Safety barriers have been installed between computer stations to create a safety barrier in place where youth will not be able to be 6' apart.
