COVID UPDATE FROM AUGUST 21
From this date churches such as ours need to have nominated Covid Marshals. This is already in hand and training has been completed for All Hallows by Ray and Viv.
A COVID Marshal’s role is to ensure that their business or activity’s COVID-Safe Plan, COVID Management Plan or their local COVID-19 prevention plans, policies or protocols are implemented as best as possible.
COVID-19 Plan Registration
Behind the scenes, there is considerable administration to ensure services can resume in places of worship, just as every restaurant and pub has to do the same. Every church planning to hold services has had to register a COVID Plan online with State Health authorities. It is detailed including information about space, numbers that can be accommodated, hygiene, name-recording and other measures to be undertaken. Some posters will be prominently displayed in the church and hall entrances and inside our facilities, and a copy of the COVID Plan must be publicly available for anyone to see, including State Health or Police authorities who may check at any time. Failure to do so, and failure to adhere to regulations, could render us liable for fines.
