I know people have been dealing with covid exposures for a year now but this is our first time.
Kid (age 11) goes to entirely outdoor camp. It’s at a playground - about 70 kids scattered all over. They can do whatever they want all day. The only indoor space at all anywhere is a single bathroom with a door. They do not wear masks.
Today got a letter that two kids from the same family were positive and will not be at camp for 14 days. They were asymptomatic. They were at camp on Monday and “for a little while” on Wednesday.
No one is considered a close contact at the camp so it’s business as usual there.
Anything I need to do for my kid? Or the rest of my family? She has 2 younger sisters - my H and I are both vaccinated.

Monitor symptoms, take temps, etc., for about 10 days. You can also get them tested for peace of mind. You can wait a couple of days for testing, or if they become symptomatic. Likelihood for spread is pretty low given the circumstances, but I'd get my DD tested just in case. Most of the time now, testing is easy to access.
I would get them tested. Delta is way more transmissible with a much higher viral load and a much shorter incubation time (3.5 days I think, not 10-14). Being outdoors or 6+ feet apart really doesn't mean much with this strain.
