Health and Safety Considerations for Vacation Bible School

Health & Safety Guidelines and Disclosure

It is our desire to offer a healthy and safe environment for all participants, both attendees and workers. The following health and safety guidelines are steps that we will be implementing to the best of our ability in order to minimize the risk of attendees or workers contracting any sicknesses or diseases. However, because of the nature of this event, our guidelines are designed to provide both safety and normalcy for all those participating. Please read the following statement carefully and contact the church if you have any questions.

Illness & Symptoms

Any attendee or worker that has been ill or shown symptoms of illness in the last 72 hours will not be permitted to attend. This guideline will be enforced each day. We will not be taking temperatures at the beginning of the day but can ask anyone to leave or be picked up if they begin to show symptoms of illness during the day. We ask that workers monitor their own health and that parents monitor the health of their children during the week. Parents must be very cautious about sending children unless you are absolutely sure they are well.

Face Masks & Social Distancing

Face masks are welcomed, and students who wish to wear a mask must bring their own. Masks will not be required for students or teachers.

Although we will make an effort at social distancing, strict distancing cannot be guaranteed. Seating in the auditorium during main sessions as a large group will be in rows and each row will be spread apart six feet. We will attempt to seat children by family instead of by age, and put some distance between families.

Given the current circumstances, the risk of contracting any illness cannot be completely eliminated. For those parents or children with pre-existing conditions or who are uncomfortable with large group settings, it would be safest to participate in the online option.

Air Travel

Anyone who has flown on a domestic or international flight within two weeks prior to VBS will not be permitted to attend. Vehicle travel within the state and across states is not included in this restriction. Please indicate on your registration form if you will have flown in the two weeks prior to VBS.

Check-In & Check-Out Procedure

Check-In will take place outside of the building at the front entrance. Attendees and workers will be given a disposable name tag at the beginning of each day. Check-out at the end of the day will take place outside of the building at the front entrance.

Food & Drink

In order to minimize the risk of contamination and touching the face, there will be no snack period. Drinking fountains will be off limits. Personal size disposable water bottles will be provided at the end of the game period each day and should not be shared. Please do not send your child with snacks or drinks. Exceptions will only be made for health reasons, so please note your request on the registration form.

Air Movement in the Building

Extra outdoor fresh air is being brought into the building (far above code requirements) and "old" air is being exhausted in an effort to keep the building air fresh and clean.

Daily Schedule

The new daily schedule no longer includes time slots for snacks or the lesson worksheets. This decision has been made in order to decrease the chances sharing contagious illness.
