DELAWARE COUNTY, Okla. — Popular summer camp destination, New Life Ranch Flint Valley, located in Delaware County, has canceled their first two weeks of camp following a COVID-19 outbreak.
The cancellation comes after more than two dozen staff members tested positive for COVID-19.
New Life Ranch executive director Tom Graney, said as staff members were gearing up for the first week of camp, one started showing COVID-19 symptoms that later came back positive.
More staff members took a test and eleven came back positive the day before camp.
As the cases climbed, he said they decided to cancel the second week of camp as well.
After reaching nearly 25 positive cases, Graney said they decided to do a 14-day quarantine.
New Life Ranch has now announced new COVID-19 protocols going forward with the remainder of summer camps, including masks and a negative covid test before coming to camp.
Graney says the outbreak has only affected the Flint Valley location, the Frontier Cove location is up and running.
