Hillside Church: COVID-19 Response Plan

1. Stay home if you’re sick.

If you feel at all unwell- please stay home. 

We recommend not participating in any gatherings if you have COVID-19 symptoms or if you need to be in isolation for any reason.

2. Wear a face covering.

While it is not mandatory to wear a facemask during the service, you may wish to do so.

3. Keep track of where you’ve been.

Contact Tracing will be compulsory for Sunday Services.

We will be displaying a NZ COVID Tracer QR code poster and will ask that everyone either use this or manually write their name down in the contact tracing sheets we will have available.

4. Maintain good hygiene.

We will encourage everyone to maintain good personal hygiene (wash hands, cough or sneeze into your elbow). 

We will have hand sanitizer available for your use. We will continue to maintain clean surfaces.

5. Maintain physical distancing.

We will encourage you to remain a distance of 1 metre apart from people whom you do not know.
