With the New Year, along with many new members of Sisters on the Fly, it has been made clear it is time to remind our members of the few rules of our organization and to update other guidelines for members.
We still ask that you follow these three simple rules:
- Events and gatherings are for women only, unless the hostess specifically states men are invited. Same goes for children and pets.
- Strive always to be nice, even though it can sometimes be difficult.
- Have fun, it"s the Sister Way.
A significant number of our members have been affected by the Covid-19 virus. Out of an abundance of caution, concern, and love for our Sisters, and in an effort to do our part to slow and eventually eliminate the spread of Covid-19, it is recommended all members read and comply with the following requests for awareness and prevention.
As multiple vaccines are being developed and delivered to health care and essential workers, SOTF remains cautious and recommends we all implement the following suggestions for guidance in creating events for our members.
We encourage you to follow those set out by the federal Center for Disease Control and your state and local health departments. The federal CDC website, with links to state and local websites, is here:
To protect our members, Sisters on the Fly is recommending the following measures be implemented:
- If you think you may have been exposed, please stay home.
- If you have any symptoms, stay home.
- Reinforcing health and good hygiene practices such as masks, social distancing, and outdoor activities as well as frequent hand washing is encouraged at all events.
- Be sure to follow the rules of the locale you are at and the directions given by the hostess..
Event hostesses are recommending the following precautions to ensure our members" health:
Consider reducing the size of our gatherings.
- Remind attendees to stay home if they have been exposed to Covid-19 in the previous 14 days or are showing Covid-19 symptoms.
- Any attendee who has had close contact with a person diagnosed with Covid-19 should stay home and monitor her health. This applies to any Sisters on the Try as well as members.
- Consider keeping a comprehensive list of all who attended the event for potential future contact tracing. Make certain the list is current and complete in the event tracing becomes necessary.
- Wearing appropriate face coverings in all areas where people may congregate.
- Reduce group activities that require people to congregate.
- While there may not be evidence that food or food packaging play a significate role in spreading the virus, avoid sharing items such as serving dishes/utensils/beverages/etc. with others. Potluck meals are also not recommended.
- Hostesses should consider providing tools the CDC recommends: soap for frequent hand washing, hand sanitizer, masks to wear in public spaces and for those who may not have one, and always encouraging social distancing.
Personal camper precautions:
- Evidence may suggest that some percentage of cases are very mild, but still infectious. Do not attend an event if you feel sick.
- Wear a face mask when outside your camper and in public spaces.
- Avoid crowded spaces. Do not cluster under awnings or in the coffee areas. Doing so increases the chance of risk for infection.
- Check with the event venue management for updated information for Covid-19 safety guidelines and steps they have in place to prevent spread of infection.
- Bring supplies to help you and others stay healthy: masks -bring extras-, hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol and drinking water.
- If using public or campground bathrooms, continue good hand hygiene practices after touching surfaces such as doors and handles. This includes those within bathrooms and shower rooms, water fountains or spigots, laundry facilities, ice machines, trash/recycling cans and bins, payment stations, vending machines and other amenities.
- If you must sneeze/cough, as a preventive measure, please sneeze into the crook of your elbow or your sleeve, not your hands.
- If you are near someone who sneezes or coughs, back away by at least 6 feet to minimize possibility of infection.
- Practice social distancing while at the event and other areas. Refrain from hugging old friends or shaking hands with new ones, as hard as that may be.
- If your trailer has a bathroom, use it. All public bathrooms have multiple sources of contamination: toilet seats and lids, toilet paper holders, faucet handles and doorknobs. If you must use public facilities, remember to touch surfaces with a paper towel – not your hands. Fast food restaurants, or restrooms at other businesses and porta potties are the worst, so avoid them if at all possible.
I agree to the terms and services agreement.
