Corona Virus (Covid-19)

1) Face Coverings Now Compulsory in Church
 
According to new government guidelines FACE COVERINGS MUST BE WORN IN CHURCH
 
Please bring your face covering or visor.  If you don’t have one, we will give you one at the door which can be purchased for a donation of £1 to Jacob’s Well!
 
Children under 11 and those with breathing difficulties don’t need to wear face coverings.
 
 
2) Now that face coverings are worn in church the Chairs will be set out as close to 2m apart as possible, but at least “1m plus apart”. However, if you come in a family bubble, you will be able to sit together with your family.
 
3)  Signs will encourage everyone to keep at a safe distance from each other.  Ushers will help people to know what to do regarding the safeguards.
 
4) Hand sanitizer is available for all on entry.
 
5) Drinks will be served  using disposable cups.
 
6) There is a one-way system in place for the toilets.  After using the toilets in the clinic building, please exit via the clinic door rather than returning the normal way.  This is to prevent a bottle neck where you may become too close to someone else in the narrow corridor.
 
7) There will be plenty of ventilation, with doors and windows kept open
 
8) Instead of passing the Collection bag around the church, offerings will now be collected in a box near to the door. 
 
9) Everyone will have their temperature taken on entry with a contactless thermometer.  Those with a fever will be asked to go home.
 
10)  Everyone is required to give contact information for track and trace, in case anyone present is later discovered to have COVID.
 
11) If you feel unwell, have a new cough or temperature, please stay at home and do not come to church
