Covid-19 Protocol

  • All staff, members, and visitors who have a fever (i.e. 37.5 degrees celsius or higher), sore throat / cold / cough /flu-like symptoms, or any of the other symptoms listed on this page, should abstain from attending any events, meetings, or gatherings held at BHCAC.
  • It is recommended that any staff, members, or visitors to the congregations who exhibit mild symptoms get tested for Covid-19 and are cleared (i.e. receive a negative result and/or adhere to a self-isolation period advised by public health) prior to attending any events, meetings, or gatherings held at BHCAC.
  • All congregational personnel, members, and visitors who have tested positive for Covid-19, or who have been designated as HIGH and MODERATE risk exposures are advised to self-isolate by Public Health (up to 14 days), MUST ABSOLUTELY NOT attend any meetings, gatherings, or activities on the site.
  • Masks are essential for all individuals aged 12 and older in enclosed locations or in situations when social separation cannot be maintained, according to the Public Health Orders (PHO). Children aged 2-12 are not required to wear a mask but are recommended to do so in indoor locations and in situations when social separation is impossible to maintain. For anyone seeking an exemption from wearing a mask, a medical exemption/approved exemption letter must be made available.
  • At all times, proper handwashing and social distance (at least 1.5m) measures are strongly suggested.
  • Adequate cleaning methods should also be implemented to ensure that frequently touched surfaces are cleaned on a regular basis.
  • It is also strongly encouraged to download the Service NSW app and check in via QR code when entering the BHCAC property (as needed by Public Health). If unable to do so, names, phone numbers, and/or email addresses should be documented and made accessible on a soft copy within 12 hours to the church office, or another member can scan people in need of assistance in using QR code.
  • Staff, members and visitors of BHCAC will cooperate with NSW Health if contacted by the Centres of Disease Controls & Prevention (CDC) in relation to a positive case of COVID-19, and notify SafeWork NSW on 13 10 50.
