Nine members of South Dakota Wing, eight from Sioux Falls Composite Squadron and one from Lincoln County Composite Squadron are headed for the Kansas Wing Winter Encampment December 26 through January 2.

Kansas Wing is at Phase 2 of CAP’s COVID reopening process, but has received a waiver to hold the encampment using strict safety guidelines.

The protocols include:

All participants must wear a CAPR 39-1 compliant facemask at all times unless specified by the Encampment Commander. All participants in any capacity must meet at least one of the following criteria at in-processing:

  • Member's home wing is in phase 3 of the COVID-19 remobilization program
  • Member is fully vaccinated as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
  • Member has proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the start of travel
  • Member self-certifies that they have quarantined for 14 days prior to the start of travel

In addition, any member who has been diagnosed with or tested positive for COVID-19 must provide a care provider's statement of recovery and have been considered recovered for 3 weeks. According to the CDC, “recovered” means meeting all of the following criteria:

  • That at least 3 days (72 hours) have passed since resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications
  • There has been improvement in respiratory symptoms like cough, shortness of breath
  • At least 7-10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared.
  • All members will receive an additional rapid test at in-processing.
  • Temperature checks will occur regularly.
  • Any member suspected of symptomatic COVID-19 (defined as two or more of the symptoms listed by the CDC) or exposed to someone suspected of symptomatic COVID-19 must immediately quarantine and will be tested.
  • Should their test return positive, the return home plan will be implemented immediately.
