Keeping You Safe
Ohio Mega Camps

The Samson Dubina Table Tennis Academy wants to give you the best camp experience.  The SDTTA is continuing to work closely with their staff and guests to ensure that they are following recommendations and guidelines set forth by the CDC, State of Ohio, and the Ohio Department of Health regarding COVID-19 business functions.  Recognizing that COVID-19 can still be a threat in the months to come, the SDTTA staff are working diligently to proceed in a cautious but yet thorough manner in assessing the needs of our staff and guests.  As state guidelines and recommendations continue to evolve, the SDTTA will continue to provide the most updated processes and administrative controls necessary to resume operations. This includes outlining necessary processes for dealing with future diagnosed cases, exposures, personnel, and customer concerns.   Pandemic infectious disease outbreaks differ from both seasonal influenza and the common cold in that they are caused by a new virus to which people do not have immunity.  The SDTTA is committed to monitoring illness within our local jurisdictions, communicate developing issues, and outline what procedures employees and guests should follow if they become ill.  The SDTTA staff will continue to emphasize the importance of respiratory hygiene etiquette, proper handwashing practices, and the need for social distancing.
