Featuring COVID Aware Because We Care Designated Business, Red Wing Environmental Learning Center, Inc.!
Q: What measures have you implemented in your business that you would like customers to know about?
A: We have worked with a professional risk management company to develop a specific ELC pandemic plan/ return to programming document. We have decreased the group size and selected programming that we feel we can better maintain physical distancing. We are utilizing masks, proper hygiene and sanitation practices as appropriate and safe. We use the time to definitively ensure “clean” gear is provided to students. We have moved from large tents to each student using a solo tent. We are keeping programming on more of a local basis- with bigger trips planned later in the summer. We currently are not transporting students- but rather parents are driving their own students.
Q: Do you require your employees and/or customers to wear a mask in your business?
A: Yes Employees, Yes Customers
Q: Do you have new hours or sales specials that you would like customers to know about?
A: We have laid out the rest of our summer- so students and parents can see what is available.
Q: How has your business been affected by COVID?
A: Program numbers and income is down. We have had to adjust the types and duration of programming. We have had to stop some programs due to the inability to ensure proper safety. We have had to invest in new equipment to provide physical distancing during overnight programs.
Q: Is there an additional message you would like to share with your customers/the community?
A: During this pandemic- ELC programs are exactly what young people should be doing- it is outside, it is very easy to maintain physical distance. It is healthy to be outside and exercising and it is helping young people develop perseverance- new friends and experience new adventures! We are/ will continue to take the precautions needed to ensure the safety of our students and staff!
