Brief statement of Reason for Finding Imminent Peril :
The stay at home order for the state of Rhode Island caused by COVID-19, the new disease caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, was lifted on May 8. In order to prevent further spread of COVID-19 as the state begins to reopen, protective measures must be implemented for summer camps to protect the health and welfare of summer camp staff, summer camp attendees and their families.
