Infection Control in Faith Settings:
As we move towards opening our buildings (when guidance allows), it’s important to understand best practice in infection control and appropriate use of PPE.
With this in mind, the District will be hosting a (third) session on infection control and the appropriate use of PPE. The guidance surrounding this topic is constantly changing and as such, this presentation is also constantly evolving. Even if you have attended a previous session, I would ask you to consider attending again to ensure that you are working with, and are knowledgeable of the most up-to-date information.
The session will be led by Sandy Youngson. Sandy has been delivering similar sessions for staff in care homes, schools, early years settings, as well as other public sector workers and volunteers in Brent since early April. During this time the presentation has developed in response to changing guidance. It would be invaluable for ministers, church leaders and those within our churches who may find this information useful, to have the opportunity to engage with this important subject.
The session is 90 minutes long, allowing time for questions. The session also comes to you via MS Teams. MS Teams has a limit of 250 participants so please think about who is best in your context to attend. We would encourage those involved in managing and cleaning church buildings to join in.
Details of this session can be found below. (Please note that the presentation slides will be available after the session. Please contact the Admin Team to request a copy.)
