The Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Lane County follows the Siuslaw School District policy on Immunization for consistency in the administration of the Immunization Policy and attendance at The CLUB.
A CLUB member must be fully immunized against certain diseases or must present a certificate or statement that, for medical or religious reasons, the member should not be immunized. Proof of immunization may be personal records from a licensed physician or public health clinic.
Any member not in compliance with Oregon statutes and rules related to immunization may be excluded from The CLUB until such time as he/she has met immunization requirements. Parents will be notified of the reason for the exclusion.
INFECTION CONTROL / HIV, HBV, HCV, AND AIDS
Although HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus), AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome), and HBV (Hepatitis B Virus) are serious illnesses, the risk of contracting the disease at The CLUB is extremely low and generally limited to situations where non-intact skin or mouth, eye or other mucous membranes would be exposed to blood or any body fluids contaminated with blood from an infected person.
Since any risk is serious, however, The CLUB requires that staff and members approach infection control using standard precautions. That is, each member and staff member is to assume all direct contact with human blood and body fluids is regarded as known to be infectious for HIV, AIDS, HBV and/or other infectious diseases.
As a general rule, a student six years of age or older infected with HIV or HBV, and who does not present special risks to others in an educational setting is entitled to remain in a regular CLUB setting and eligible for all rights, privileges, and services as provided by law and Board policy. The CLUB recognizes that the student and/or parent has no obligation to report an HIV or HBV condition diagnosis to The CLUB.
"Special risk" member means those members infected with HBV or HIV whose health care provider has reasonable grounds to believe present special risk to other members or adults in an educational setting. Such special risks include, but are not limited to, a member’s ongoing history of biting others. If The CLUB is informed, The CLUB is also prohibited by law from releasing information unless the infected person or parent gives permission for such release.
If a member or parent wishes to divulge such information and continues attending The CLUB, The CLUB will meet with the infected individual or representative to develop appropriate procedures.
Parents of an HIV student five years of age or younger, or any other HIV student deemed special risk by the member's health care provider as well as parents of any member with AIDS, are required to notify the Executive Director of the member's infection in order for the member to be granted permission to continue to attend The CLUB. Failure to do so will result in an order by the Oregon Department of Human Services, Health Services, or local health department excluding the member from The CLUB or the parent may voluntarily withdraw the student from The CLUB.
