Consent Form for Minors Undergoing COVID 19 Testing

Dunkleys Gymnasics Camp is planning to provide COVID-19 Testing as a means of keeping your child and our Camp Community safe. We are seeking your consent to test your child for COVID-19 infection. We will test 8 year olds and up (that are not currently vaccinated) once a week. With your consent, your child will receive a free diagnostic PCR test for the COVID-19 virus. Collecting a specimen for testing involves inserting a small swab, similar to a Q tip, into the front of the nose. We will notify you when your child has been tested and notify you within 24-48 hours, if your child tests positive.

In the event that your child tests positive, we will quarantine your child, and ask that you arrange for immediate transport directly to your home. Your child and family should quarantine immediately. Your child may return later in the summer for another session of camp, after 14 days have passed without symptoms.

In the event that your child tests negative, but still has symptoms, we will follow up with an antigen test and work with your family to determine the cause. Your child will be quarantined at camp, until we get a negative antigen test as well, or a Dr. has ruled out COVID as the cause of the symptoms.
