PRACTICAL GUIDANCE FOR THE CHURCH
.• HAND SANITISER is available to those attending the Church
• FACE COVERINGS must be worn by those attending public acts of worship unless there is a genuine exemption/those leading worship/ a role that requires masks to be removed for a period of time.
• GOOD VENTILATION and air throughout the building; in this case, because of climatic conditions, please wrap up well
• There is now very strong evidence to support that the main mode of this variant’s viral transmission is through aerosols, and that the risk from surface and touch transmission is very small indeed. As such, the strict regimes of church cleaning are no longer necessary. General church cleaning is sufficient
• Those engaged in a form of pastoral ministry (eg ministry to the housebound, sick and vulnerable) should take regular lateral flow tests to ensure they are safe to do so.
