What is infection control?
Infection control prevents or stops the spread of infections in healthcare or any other organization settings.
Healthcare organizations are normally the ones to have Infection Control policies but with these days and times every organization including churches should have a policy in place to fit your organization. It would be a good idea to have every person or member of your organization read and sign that they reviewed the policy for infection control.
The Infection Control Policy sample below includes:
- Purpose - To
promote safety in the [Church Name] congregation in terms of reducing infection
disease risk. Also, to allow each congregation to have a unified guideline
within the church for infection control.
- Background - Due
to the recent rise in the Wuhan Corona Virus and possible future spread and
heightened infection risk within the community, it’s necessary to have an
updated church policy regarding infection control.
- When to Implement Policy -This
policy will be implemented during the influenza season of every year and during
the recent Wuhan Corona virus outbreak.
- Measures - 1. Communion - a. People distributing
the Communion will wear gloves when distributing the bread and cup. - b. The communion try
will not be passed along the pews, and individuals will in turn have to move to
the edge of the aisle so that the bread and cup can be distributed to them. - 2. Hand Sanitizer and Mask - a. Face masks will be
available for those who request it to wear during church. - b. Wash your hands often
with soap and warm water or alcohol-based hand sanitizers. There will be hand
sanitizer at the front of the church for those who wish to use it. - c. Cover your nose and
mouth when sneezing or coughing. - 3. Handshaking Practice - a. Pastors and members in
[Church Name] will refrain from the practice of shaking hands with each other. - 4. Policy Regarding Attendance During Sickness - a. It’s recommended that
anyone that is sick with fever and/or respiratory symptoms like a cough, runny
nose or sore throat should stay home and avoid attending church programs and
services until symptoms are no longer there. - b. For those who have
respiratory symptoms, it’s recommended that they wear a mask if they are in
church. (See policy for more measures.)
