The Hylton Boys & Girls Club in Dale City is taking safety precautions as it continues serving kids.
When entering the facility, youth and staff members have their temperature checked with a forehead thermometer scanner.
Demarcation symbols located on the floor are used to set children 6 feet apart from one another during activities, according to Tamesha Morris, a board member for the Prince William County/Manassas Boys & Girls Clubs.
They are given gloves while in the gym, and staff wipe down items after each use.
Youth go into the restroom one at a time to wash their hands while the remaining kids wait in line at a 6-foot distance.
During lunch, they sit at a table by themselves, aside from siblings.
“Enforcing these new guidelines to keep our children and staff safe and healthy takes consistency and a team effort,” Morris said.
