THURROCK CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP CORONA VIRUS POLICY

The purpose of this policy is to reassure and inform you. We want to reassure you that we’re taking Coronavirus seriously and inform you of our approach and the procedures we have put in place. We also want to remind you that whilst we all need to take sensible precautions, there is no need to be overly worried about Coronavirus; the likelihood of infection is still low and, for the vast majority, the illness is not serious.

The information below is intended for all users of Thurrock Christian Fellowship (TCF) including TCF Preschool, Thurrock Foodbank, hirers, general public and church members. The latest version of this policy will be published on our website (http://thurrockcf.org.uk/about-us/news-and-events), displayed in the foyers of the TCF Corringham buildings and emailed where appropriate. A separate policy exists for TCF Staff and Volunteers.

Our policy

We’re following the government’s advice about Coronavirus which is published on the Public Health England website (see the links below). This website contains advice about how to protect yourself and others and we would encourage you to look at this information and follow the advice.

At present, TCF is operating a ‘business as usual’ policy; all meetings and bookings are taking place. TCF PreSchool and Thurrock Foodbank also continue to operate as normal. This will only change if government advice changes or we experience a Coronavirus related problem. If this happens, we will update and republish this policy. If it becomes necessary to close the building or cancel meetings, we will inform all users, hirers and church members as quickly as possible.

How you can help

  • Read and follow the advice on the Public Health England website (see link below).
  • If you experience any potential Coronavirus symptoms such as:-
                                                > A continuous cough
                                                > A high temperature
                                                > A shortness of breath or other respiratory problems a fever


    even if they are very mild, please don’t come to any of the TCF buildings. You should follow the advice on the Public Health England website (see link below) which, at the time of writing, is to contact the NHS 111 Helpline and to avoid contact with others.
  • When in attendance at TCF please wash your hands on a regular basis using hot water and the hand soap provided in the washrooms.
