For individuals, including ministers, staff and volunteers in churches this would include:

  • Getting your vaccine when offered to ensure you are fully protected
  • Staying at home and resting if you have symptoms
  • Opening windows when meeting indoors
  • Wearing a face covering in indoor public places and on public transport, and encouraging the use of face coverings in church buildings wherever possible
  • Washing your hands to protect yourself
  • Taking an LFD test before visiting someone in a hospital or care home
