Update - October 5th, 2021
Beginning today, the PEI VaxPass is required to attend all indoor and outdoor organized events/activities. This applies to ALL 4-H PEI meetings and events - at project, club, regional and provincial levels. Members who just recently or will turn 12 soon will have a 3 month grace period from their birthday to get both doses of vaccine. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Administrative Director Rayanne Frizzell firstname.lastname@example.org We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
Update - September 16th, 2021
As of 8am on Friday, September 17th, non-medical
masks are mandatory at indoor meetings and activities
(all in-door public places).
It seems simple enough, but sometimes we forget the basics. Protect yourself, your
family and our Island community:
Wash hands frequently with soap and water
Cough and sneeze into your elbow or a tissue
Get vaccinated - PrinceEdwardIsland.ca/dropinclinics
Stay home if you are not feeling well
Keep your circle of contacts small and stay two meters apart from those not in your close circle
Get tested if you have ANY COVID-19 symptoms PrinceEdwardIsland.ca/covid19symptoms
Personal gatherings of family and friends - up to a maximum of 20 people. Personal gatherings do not require an operational plan.
Organized gatherings - up to a maximum cohort of 200 people outdoors and 100 people indoors. Organized gatherings require an operational plan. Official approval of operational plans with a single cohort is not required. Activities and events that include close contact (i.e. participants in sports, performers at theatrical events, wedding receptions, ceilidhs, funeral receptions, etc.) are permitted in cohorts of 100, outdoors or indoors. Dancing and/or standing receptions are permitted at such events, where appropriate, within cohorts.
All members and leaders should continue to self-screen at home before attending any 4-H event.
1. Are you experiencing any of the following symptoms:
Fever (38* or higher)/ chills
New or worsening cough
Feeling unwell / unusual fatigue
Body / muscle / joint aches
Gastrointestinal symptoms (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea)
Shortness of breath / difficulty breathing
Runny / stuffy nose (not related to seasonal allergies, cold weather, or other known causes or existing conditions)
2. Have you been told to self isolate for any reason (e.g. travel, instructions from Public Health, etc.)?
3. Have you had close contact (face to face contact within 2 meters) in the last 14 days with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19?
4. Have you received a Covid-19 alert exposure notification on your cell phone in the last 14 days? If you already went for a test and got negative result, select "no."
If you have answered “YES” to any of the above questions that means that the member/leader is not permitted to attend the 4-H activity.
If you have answered “NO” to all the above questions, you may attend the event.
Exception: If you or your child has on-going, existing conditions and symptoms that would not be new or unusual for that individual (e.g., chronic allergies), this alone will not require you/them to miss an event. However, if existing symptoms become more extreme than usual or are accompanied by the onset of new symptoms, it would be important to consult with a health care provider to determine if staying home or getting a COVID test is recommended.
4-H PEI will continue to monitor the updates from the Chief Public Health Officer and provide further information as required.
Also, just a reminder of the importance of maintaining and submitting contact tracing records for all 4-H activities. Contact tracing forms need to be emailed to email@example.com right after the event or meeting.
