Wellness Check Guidelines
We all play a role in the well-being of ourselves and the families we minister to. We should regularly monitor our health to keep participants of Awana safe. Please review the following steps and use the Wellness Check process before the start of Awana each week.
Before coming to Awana
Evaluate Symptoms & Perform a Health Check
1. Monitor your health leading up to Awana. We ask that each parent/guardian do a Health Check which includes being free of both Primary and Secondary Symptoms.
- Primary Symptoms: cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.
- Secondary Symptoms: fever, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, vomiting, diarrhea, nasal/sinus congestion or runny nose, or fatigue. Specifically, new or unusual symptoms (i.e. symptoms that cannot be attributed to other health conditions such as seasonal allergies, chronic lung conditions, weightlifting sessions, etc.)
- Take Temperature and ensure it is less than 100.4 F
*Please do not attend Awana with any primary symptoms, secondary symptoms, or temperature.
2. If you have any symptoms listed in the Health Check:
- Notify Ryan or Suzanne that you are sick (Volunteers Only).
- If your child appears to have any Primary and/or Secondary Symptoms, you will be notified to pick up your child.
Evaluate Exposure while not at Awana/Church
Do not come to Awana/Church:
· If you have ongoing close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19
· If instructed by the local health authority to self-isolate
After Arriving at Awana/Church
1. Check-in: a volunteer will confirm that you have evaluated your own symptoms and exposure and are low risk.
2. Confirm that you have performed a Health Check. If a Health Check has not been completed prior to arrival, we ask that you do so with your children in a private room. We’ll have touchless thermometers and simple questions to answer.
*Any persons not passing these steps will be asked to refrain from attending/volunteering at Awana for that evening.
