Chabad of the Tri-Valley canceled its summer day camp for the rest of the season last week after five youth attending the camp tested positive for COVID-19.
All in-person events at Chabad's Center of Jewish Life on Hopyard Road in Pleasanton were called off through the weekend while the building was cleaned and disinfected as an extra precaution, according to Rabbi Raleigh Resnick. He said no other positive tests had been confirmed to date, including none among counselors, junior counselors, coaches or camp volunteers at the day camp.
"Upon consultation, our camp directorship made the decision to close the camp for the remainder of the summer. This is obviously not something we wanted, but is the right decision under the circumstances," Rabbi Resnick said in a message to the Chabad community on Wednesday.
He described the COVID-positive youth as being either asymptomatic or experiencing only mild symptoms.
"We wish each and every one of them a complete and speedy recovery," he added. "Please do remain vigilant and follow the directions of your medical practitioner."
