Caton’s Island is committed to ensuring the health and safety of all campers / registrants. The recent public health situation involving multiple confirmed cases of the measles within New Brunswick has prompted Caton’s Island to implement the following policy:
- Campers who have had or have been in contact with the measles in the past 21 days (21 days prior to the first day of arriving on the island) are asked to stay home. This ensures the health and safety of all campers and staff and is the most effective way to prevent an outbreak.
- If Caton’s Island discovers that a camper is showing signs / symptoms of the measles while at camp, the camper will be quarantined, the parents will be immediately contacted and the camper will be sent home. Caton’s Island will then contact all parents /guardians to notify them of the suspected case.
- Caton’s Island will not block any camper without immunization from attending camp. However, Caton’s Island highly encourages all campers to make sure that their immunizations are up to date to ensure the health of all campers and staff.
- Caton’s Island encourages all parents to be familiar with the symptoms and precautions involving the measles. Please visit the following website to get up to date information.
