Faith Mennonite Church 

COVID Safety Plan 

Per MOH Requirements 

March 6, 2022 

Measures we’re taking 

How we’re ensuring workers know how to keep themselves safe from exposure to COVID-19 

       - passive screening reminders are posted on all entrances to building 

- weekly service links include a reminder to self screen prior to attending in person and provide virtual attendance options if symptomatic.  

 

 

How we’re screening for COVID-19 

  • Passive screening as required, via posted signs 

 

How we’re controlling the risk of transmission in our workplace 

Physical distancing and separation (currently not applicable)

         -phsyical distance and traffic flow are managed in accordance with public health restrictions. Currently distancing is not required, but we are asking our congregants to be sensitive to the proximity hesitant.  

Cleaning 

         All high contact surfaces are cleaned following or during each program/service, whichever is deemed more essential. 

 

Masks 

We have asked our congregants to follow the public health masking guidelines in place.  Only those who are actively leading the service in an area not available to the public (stage) or have a medical exemption do not have to wear a mask as per the Ontario Ministry of Health guidelines. We are not able to request proof of medical exemption for those who are not able to mask.  

 

What we will do if there is a potential case, or suspected exposure to, COVID-19 at our workplace 

         If there is a reasonably suspected potential case or exposure to Covid-19 at the facility, staff, board and all people who were in close contact with the individual will be contacted and notified.  

 

How we’re managing any new risks caused by the changes made to the way we operate our business 

         Before implementing new procedures, risks are assessed by the team to eliminate and manage as needed to ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers, members, and visitors. Should any new risks arise, they will be discussed seriously as soon as possible to come to a safe and satisfactory resolution. 

 

How we’re making sure our plan is working 

         Staff meet monthly to discuss the effectiveness and efficiency of our Covid-19 Safety Plan to ensure information, procedures, policies, and communication lines are up to date and functioning to protect the staff, volunteers, members, and visitors.
