Deliver group instruction on a regular basis in a healthy and safe environment for children, advisors and volunteers while maintaining flexibility to implement contingency plans or reconsider health and safety protocols as circumstances change.
Health and Safety Protocols
COVID‐19 underscores the importance of good health and hygiene in our church environment. As a community it is imperative that we all work together to keep each other healthy and prevent the spread of the virus. The most critical element of this plan is the following, children, advisors or volunteers must stay home if sick or not feeling well.
Important precautions that will be taken include the following protocols:
- Frequent hand washing and hand sanitization will be facilitated
- Cleaning and disinfection practices will be consistent
- Advisors, volunteers and children will be required to wear a mask for the duration of the session
- Safe spacing will be practiced within each group
- Children will be split up in groups and stay with their groups, failure to comply will result in actions taken.
- Kindergarten: maximum 5/group – Mask not required while in group
- 1st & 2nd grade: 10 max ‐ Mask not required but recommended while in group
- 3rd & 4th grade: 10 max – mask will be required at all times
