KENDALLVILLE, IN – Leaders of the Cole Center YMCA/Kendallville Parks Department Day Camp were informed Friday one of their campers lives with a parent who tested positive for COVID-19.
Noble County Health Officer Dr. Terry Gaff says the camper has demonstrated cold-like symptoms. However the camper has not been in attendance since June 23. Officials say in an abundance of caution, they have suspended camp until all campers and staff have the opportunity to be tested for the COVID-19 because of this potential exposure.
Arrangements have been made with the Optum Testing Site at the Community Learning Center in Kendallville for free testing on Monday, June 29. The site can handle six people every half hour from 8 AM to 8 PM. An appointment will not be necessary, but early arrival is encouraged.
Gaff says while awaiting test results, the campers and staff should self-isolate, especially from the elderly and those with chronic health conditions. There will be no camp this coming week.
If there are no additional positive results, camp will resume on Monday, July 6.
Campers have remained isolated from the general YMCA membership. That means the Y operations will continue to operate with no interruption.
Gaff reminds everyone to continue to practice social distancing, wear a mask and to wash your hands frequently with warm water and soap.
