COVID-19 & Reopening Update

Our team has been working to incorporate guidelines from public health officials and Governor Jay Inslee in order to reopen safely. Now that Island County is in Phase 3 of reopening, we are approved to host so long as strict health and safety measures are in place. To keep volunteers, participants, and team members safe, we’re taking these and other measures:

Additionally, we ask that you come to the Whidbey Institute campus only if you have no COVID symptomsno fever, and no known exposure to COVID-19 positive individuals within 14 days.

According to the World Health Organization, “the incubation period for COVID-19, which is the time between exposure to the virus (becoming infected) and symptom onset, is on average 5-6 days, however can be up to 14 days. During this period, also known as the “pre- symptomatic” period, some infected persons can be contagious.”

As always, common sense and courtesy about attending a program are requested—if unwell, please stay home and rest!
