2022 Covid-19 Guidelines at DYF Programs (2023 Update Coming Soon):

In respect for your family’s health and safety, all DYF staff and volunteers will be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and we encourage eligible participants to do the same. Our COVID-19 policies for 2022 programs will be made with current information from the CDC, state and local health authorities, and under the leadership of our Healthcare Professional Advisory Board. Given the unique threat that COVID-19 poses to our community, we will likely require vaccination against COVID-19 for all participants age 18 and older. When full FDA approval is granted to younger groups (as opposed to emergency use authorization, EUA), we anticipate requiring vaccination for those younger age groups as well. Specific guidelines and requirements will be tailored to each program and released at least 30 days prior to the program start date. Should you have any concerns about these guidelines once they are released and you no longer feel comfortable attending a DYF program, we will provide you with a full refund minus the $50 non-refundable deposit and the corresponding processing fee.
