Communicable Disease Prevention Guide

UNDERSTANDING THE RISK

  • All communicable disease information (including Covid-19) from the Provincial Health Officer, Worksafe BC and the BC Synod office are monitored regularly. This includes orders, guidance, notices and recommendations. These are adjusted as necessary.


IMPEMENTATION

  • Before visiting Mount Olive, all staff, volunteers, members and guests are asked to assess themselves for symptoms of COVID-19. Please stay home if you are sick or feeling unwell, have been asked to self-isolate or have been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with Covid-19.

  • All Staff are supported and encouraged to work from home if sick or feeling unwell, have been asked to self-isolate or have been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with Covid-19.

  • Hand sanitizer stations are found throughout the building to encourage frequent hand washing. Signage is posted throughout the building and in all washrooms encouraging the most recent health recommendations.

  • Masks are required in all public spaces throughout the building.

  • We support and encourage all staff members, volunteers and members of Mount Olive to receive their Covid-19 vaccinations.

  • We maintain a clean environment through routine cleaning three times a week. Our ventilation system is properly maintained and functioning as designed. Doors are kept open to increase airflow during services and other larger events.


COMMUNICATION

  • All staff and key volunteers are provided with the current communicable disease guide. This guide is also available on our website and in the church office.

  • We continue to review and assess the situation in our congregation, our local community and the province and will make adjustments as necessary.
