RESPONDING TO THE CORONAVIRUS

Guidelines for healthy practices within gatherings of people

Hi Church,

 

We are committed to the wellbeing of our church family and those who gather with us.

 

In response to COVID-19 and the NZ Government’s announcements, we want to take the necessary precautions to keep our community safe and do our part to reduce the spread of this virus.

Our Sunday service will still be running as usual.

 

But if you are:

  • Over the age of 60 with any underlying health issues

  • Showing any symptoms of COVID-19

  • Sick/Unwell

  • Or have been overseas within the last 2 weeks

 

We kindly ask that you to stay at home and join us at 10AM on Sunday through our Facebook livestream

We are following the New Zealand Government Health recommendations as listed below:

CURRENT GUIDELINES ISSUED BY THE NEW ZEALAND MINISTRY OF HEALTH:

  • If you are sick or feel unwell, do not attend public events.

  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow or by covering your mouth and nose with tissues. Put used tissues in the bin or a bag immediately.

  • Wash your hands with soap and water often (for at least 20 seconds).

  • Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

  • Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.

  • Avoid personal contact, such as hugging, kissing, sharing cups or food with sick people.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects, such as doorknobs.

  • Stay home if you feel unwell.

  • Self-isolate for 14 days if you have returned from overseas.

  • Call NZ Healthline on 0800 358 5453 if you have any symptoms. 


SYMPTOMS OF THE DISEASE

Transmission occurs through droplets spread when infected people cough or sneeze, and it gains access to the body through the respiratory tract (lungs). The symptoms include fever, cough, muscle pain, shortness of breath and fatigue; some patients may have diarrhoea, and others very mild to no symptoms at all. While these symptoms are also typical of flu, the Coronavirus infection may lead to a more serious pneumonia infection.

If you think you have been exposed by travel or contact with an affected individual, SEEK ADVICE from your primary care physician. Be sure to disclose your travel history.

Also, follow the recommendations of our National Government. This will include self-quarantine if returning from an affected area. [This is in line with the current NZ Ministry of Health advice for those involved in overseas travel.]
