Athletes for Kids Policy
Starting June 30, the State of Washington is removing most COVID-19 restrictions. This means that most businesses and organizations may choose to operate as they did before the COVID-19 pandemic with no capacity limits or physical distancing requirements. Any organization or business may also choose to maintain capacity limits or physical distancing to protect those who are not fully protected by vaccines.

Athletes For Kids COVID-19 Mask Policy
The State of Washington has removed many COVID-19 restrictions, but the COVID-19 delta variant is spreading fast. As of August 23, 2021, masks are required for everyone in public indoor spaces, and recommended in crowded outdoor settings. The statewide indoor mask mandate applies to all individuals, regardless of vaccination status.
Following this mandate and for the safety of our children, Athletes for Kids is requiring all mentors and buddies to wear masks when they are meeting indoors. If you are unable to do so or have any questions please email Nick/Marni at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why do I need to upload my covid-19 vaccination information?
For your buddy (or potential buddy if you are not yet matched). Most of our buddies in our program have a disability. Some people with disabilities might be more likely to get infected or have severe illness because of underlying medical conditions.
For more information on COVID-19 and recommendations for people with disabilities, please visit the CDC web site
If I am not vaccinated, will I be allowed to be a mentor?
Yes you still can be a mentor even if you are not vaccinated. However, some buddy parents may prefer a mentor who is vaccinated.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Nick or Marni at email@example.com
We will continue to work every day to support our mentors, buddies and community and to fulfill our vision and mission in this new environment. We are in this together and we can make a difference, one mentorship at a time.
In it Together
We are thankful to our mentors and buddies for making thank-you cards for the essential workers of our community and care cards for the residents of nursing homes.
