Throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic the church has played an important leadership role in the community by acting responsibly and following expert advice on the best ways to make our schools, churches, halls and other facilities and ministries safe. While there are no current restrictions on public gatherings in our churches and other facilities, we can all reduce the spread by taking some simple steps:
- Stay home and get tested if you are unwell.
- Stay up to date with your vaccinations and boosters. This is a simple step you can take to help protect yourself, your family and everyone you love. However, you are not required to be fully vaccinated in order to visit our facilities.
- Use hand sanitiser or wash your hands regularly with soap and warm water.
- Maintain good ventilation of indoor spaces.
- Clean surfaces regularly, with particular attention given to high touch surface areas.
- Wearing a mask in indoor public spaces helps protect everyone in our community and especially those who are at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19 and flu.
- Where possible, maintain physical distancing of 1.5 metres. The more space between you and others, the harder it is for the virus to spread.
Clergy, Lay Ministers and others who visit hospitals, aged care facilities, schools and vulnerable persons should consult the facilities concerned to find out about any restrictions on visiting.
