Drive Through Events During Coronavirus/COVID-19
The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of large groups of people.
Blue Star Families (BSF) has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, Blue Star Families cannot guarantee that you will not become infected with COVID-19. Blue Star Families adheres to the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), and other applicable federal, state and local regulations and guidelines for a safe, clean, and healthy environment. As such, Blue Star Families has provided the following personal protective equipment and precautionary measures to employees and volunteers:
Facial coverings will be provided to all employees and volunteers
Employees and volunteers may choose to wear their own facial covering; all facial coverings must cover the employee’s nose and mouth at all times where employees cannot adequately follow social distancing protocols
Employees and volunteers are responsible for maintaining the cleanliness of their facial coverings
Employees and volunteers are required to wear a facial covering where social distancing is impossible or impracticable
Disposable facial coverings will be available in bulk
Follow normal preventive actions while at work and home, including cleaning hands and avoiding touching eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
Hand Sanitizer and sanitizing wipes will be available for employees and volunteers
Employees and volunteers are required to take their temperature as well as anyone in their party prior to reporting to a BSF function or event. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4F should stay home.
BSF signage and ground markings have been provided to help employees, volunteers, and guests better navigate common areas while practicing physical distancing while at BSF Events.
