Our COVID-19 Policy

The Servants of Jesus Community believe that prayer is the most potent weapon that we have against the COVID-19 virus.  We ask that you join with us, and many other prayer networks across the world, to pray for 1 minute at 7pm every night for the eradication of this virus.

In addition to prayer, we also operate in a manner that is consistent with government requirements to minimise the risk of illness to our members and visitors.  The Servants of Jesus and our associated charity, Servants Community Care, operate in compliance with COVID-19 Safety Plans that have been prepared in accordance with applicable Public Health Orders.  Where required, our Safety Plans have been registered with the NSW Government.

Servants of Jesus Community COVID-19 Safety Plan

The Servants of Jesus Community have prepared COVID-19 Safety Plans for ‘Places of Worship’ and for ‘Hospitality’ and registered them with the NSW Government.  Copies of our current plans are available on request.

 

Stay Home if Sick.

Symptoms of COVID-19 include a cough, a sore or scratchy throat, shortness of breath, loss of taste, loss of smell, runny nose or a fever (37.5°C or higher).  Anyone with these symptoms should be tested for COVID-19 [Source: NSW Government].

If you are displaying any symptoms of COVID-19 please do not come to our events, even if the symptoms are mild.  We may ask you health related questions and/or take your temperature at some events, in accordance with our Safety Plan.

Wash / Sanitise Hands

We invite you to sanitise your hands as you enter (and leave) any of our events.  We suggest that you wash and/or sanitise your hands on a frequent basis.  Please avoid touching your face and avoid touching others [Source: NSW Government].

Face Coverings

Face Coverings (masks) are not mandatory, however they remain strongly recommended in situations where you are not able to physically distance

Look Out for Signage

We are frequently changing signage in response to changing circumstances with COVID-19.  Please watch out for new signs and changes to old signs.  These signs are one way we use to communicate to you the latest requirements from Government (eg changes in Safety Plans) and also help us to run smooth meetings.

 

Check In using Service NSW

You must ‘Check In’ to the Servants of Jesus Centre using the Service NSW database.  The easiest way to do this is to use the QR Code (posted at several entrances).  If you cannot do this then please seek assistance at Reception.  This applies to any person that enters the site (delivery drivers excepted).

Physical Distancing

Physical distancing means minimising the close physical contact we have with people and staying 1.5 metres away from people we don’t live with.  People living in the same household do not need to be 1.5 metres from each other.

Physical distancing must be maintained even if face coverings are worn.
