"Disinfectant liquids, limit of people in rooms and strict regulations. Until recently, we would not think that colonies might look like this.

On the day of departure for summer vacation, the child must be healthy. The parent must certify in writing that he did not live with a person in quarantine and had no contact with a person suspected of being infected with coronavirus 14 days before departure, nor did he reveal any signs of an infectious disease (e.g. cough, fever, runny nose or shortness of breath). If they occur during a camp or colony, the parent is obliged to collect them within a maximum of 12 hours.
Children who go on a summer vacation, in turn, must be prepared for the need to comply with increased hygiene rules, maintaining a two-meter distance, as well as equipped with face masks.
