Keeping Everyone Safe. Action Plan for In-Person Programming

COVID-19 Coronavirus & Contagious Virus In-Person Programming Plan of Action
Teen and Young Adult Service Programs
Updated for all teen and young adult in person programming through September 2022.
The IMAGE Center is acting to keep staff and consumers safe to minimize the spread of COVID-19 and other contagious viruses easily spread through our community. 

Here’s how we’re doing our part:

Follow our Leaders. We follow all State guidance related to education-based activities, including reopening actions and face covering requirements on the State of Maryland for reopening advisements and Governor’s orders. 
Flexible scheduling. In-person and virtual program options will remain available.
Reduce contamination risk. Program materials will be sanitized prior to and after program use.
Before you join us in person, please: 
Monitor your health and interactions. 
Join us online instead if you have:
Cough, shortness of breath, fever, or any other symptoms of COVID-19 or other contagious viruses. 
Recent exposure to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or other contagious viruses.
Staff will perform temperature checks upon arrival. Students with a temperature of 100+ will not be permitted to participate and will need to provide a negative PCR COVID test to return to programming. Students with seasonal allergies should not attend programs if symptoms cannot be remedied with over the counter or prescribed medications. Students will not be permitted to participate if they exhibit symptoms.  
Prepare and pack. Bring a backpack with items you will need for the duration of the program including: water, a snack, beach towel, sunscreen and writing or communication device. 
Take precaution. Hand sanitation will be provided for check-in, transitions and check-out. 
Respect personal space. Activities will be designed with respect for social distancing and mindful spacing.
Talk about it. Please contact us at  if you have any questions or concerns.
