Summer 2021: there will be protocols to be respected in Holiday Structures?
It is useless to ignore it, in recent months we are learning to live with covid and, on the wave of the 2020 experience, we are preparing for a summer in which we will still have to respect some limitations. They will probably be less stringent than in 2020 thanks to vaccines and a more manageable situation, but we will certainly be ready to defend ourselves.
We will still have to maintain strict compliance with basic protective measures such as hand hygiene, avoid touching the eyes, nose and mouth and use the aids that will be recommended especially in moments of transition between activities.
We will have to respect the instructions of the head of animation who will still have to act as “Covid Manager” and help him enforce the regulations of the structure. Above all, we will have to be respectful of the limitations because we will be an example for the children and for the guests of the structure, but everything will be easier thanks to the experience of last summer.
Summer 2021: training granted by vivateam
Of course, before leaving for the season, just like last season, we will offer all our collaborators specific training based on what will be the health requirements: training that will serve to be more informed and aware.
Obviously it is very early to make predictions but, given the clarity that has always distinguished us, we do not want to hide!
Paky Club and children
Although there is strong evidence that the risks for children are significantly lower than for adults, last summer we rethought the children’s service to ensure a “fun” distance: we organized a kind of triage at each start of the activity with a fun washing of the hands and we included activities that were suitable for the situation. We found the most important difficulties in guaranteeing distance during the Paky dance.
As far as sport is concerned, distancing was certainly the central factor: it was necessary to include “safe” individual activities in the program and replace team activities with new solutions.
The evening program was among the most complicated moments of animation for respecting distances: it was necessary to avoid some types of entertainment such as, for example, guest shows and evenings or musicals for children but otherwise we were able to propose a varied and fun program with variety, cabaret and musicals.
Throughout the summer dance evenings and disco evenings were banned, while for most of the summer we were able to propose individual group dances while maintaining the distances required by law.
