What would happen if a student has COVID-19 symptoms while on tour?
If a participant feels ill with symptoms of COVID-19 (which include fever, chills/aches, shortness of breath, coughing), our team will immediately facilitate movement of the participant to a location where they can safely be separated from others. We will simultaneously engage our Doctors on Call or a local medical facility to consult on the next steps, testing, and treatment.
We would then, as required:
- Establish and coordinate communication with the participant and the family
- Facilitate transportation for the participant to a local medical facility
- Coordinate quarantine arrangements for the participant, in consultation with local health authorities
- Provide guidance to the group to reduce the risk of additional exposure and coordinate testing
Brightspark will provide the resources necessary to facilitate the recommended treatment, including an isolated and a chaperoned location for the participant to recover.
