We continue to work with the Vermont Department of Health concerning COVID-19 in our community as we get close to our in-person event.
  • For everyone’s safety, we require everyone in attendance to wear a mask. We will provide KN95 masks (or similar) for all participants and attendees. Coaches are asked to email jrironchefvt@nullvermontafterschool.org to tell us the number of kid/adult-sized masks needed for your team, including all participants and the coach.
  • We will provide all team members with non-latex gloves to prepare food.
  • We urge everyone to have their up-to-date COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 PCR test 72 hours before attending the event.
  • We ask that every participant and attendee take a rapid antigen test on the morning of the event. Please reach out to your school/organization to request tests for your team. Here are links that provide free state-sponsored antigen tests and free federal-sponsored tests by mail (7-14 days, plan ahead).
  • Following CDC guidelines, people may not attend if they have currently tested positive for COVID-19, are waiting for COVID-19 test results, have COVID-19 symptoms, or have had close contact with a person who has tested positive for or who has symptoms of COVID-19. If you have recently had COVID, we ask that you have two negative antigen tests 24 hours apart, prior to the event.
