Covid-19 Policy


  1. Stay home if you have symptoms of Covid-19, even if you have been vaccinated or recently had covid. Stay home if you test positive for Covid. Symptoms could include fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea. This applies to mentors, staff, students, and children attending the MAC.

  2. If you have been exposed to Covid-19 and have been vaccinated, and are not showing symptoms, you may attend ASA. If you have been exposed but have not been vaccinated but you tested positive in the last 90 days, you may attend ASA if you are not showing symptoms. If you are exposed but have not been vaccinated, we ask that you not attend any ASA classes or activities for 10 days after exposure or after day 7 after receiving a negative test result (test must occur on day 5 or later). Exposure is 15 or more minutes within 6 feet of someone who has tested positive for Covid-19.

  3. We encourage the use of masks indoors when physical distancing is not possible.

  4. We ask that everyone be honest and forthcoming if your family tests positive for Covid. If you test positive, we ask that you notify the ASA Chairman, Brenda LaMont. Brenda will notify the ASA community that you have tested positive for Covid-19. By telling the community you have tested positive for Covid-19, families can make their own decisions about whether or not they want to attend ASA the next week. If you want to remain anonymous, Brenda will honor your request. In which case, Brenda will reach out to exposed people personally to let them know they were exposed, but she will not share your name. She will tell the community there was a positive case and she will notify the classes that there was a positive case in their class.

  5. ASA will not meet in person for 2 weeks if there are 4 families with confirmed positive cases for Covid-19 in a 2-week period. Classes will not meet in person if there are significant numbers of confirmed cases in an individual class. The ASA Executive Committee reserves the right to cancel class for any reason.

  6. We encourage mentors to hold their classes outside when the weather is agreeable.

  7. If a student shows obvious signs of sickness while attending ASA, a mentor of their class or an Executive Committee member will ask them to move to a safe location while we wait for a parent to come pick the student up. If a child in the MAC shows obvious signs of sickness, the child will be taken to their parent.

  8. If the school is not meeting in person, the mentors will provide a way for the students to continue their class at home. The mentors will decide what level of online interaction will be provided for their individual class.

  9. No refunds will be provided if ASA does not meet in person.

  10. By attending ASA, you and your family knowingly and freely assume all risks, both known and unknown, even if arising from the negligence of another person, and assume full responsibility by participating at ASA.

  11. Student/mentor/staff continued attendance at ASA depends on following the code of conduct. You may be asked to leave ASA if you do not follow the code of conduct.

  12. This policy is subject to change based on the most current information available. If so, an email will be sent out, and details will be posted on the website. The ASA Covid policy is based on recommendations from the Utah County Health Department and is subject to change as new information becomes available.
