Our church is currently back in session!

How is COVID-19 spread?

  • COVID-19 is spread through large liquid droplets when a person infected with COVID-19 coughs or sneezes. The virus in these droplets can enter through the eyes, nose or mouth of another person if they are in close contact with the person who coughed or sneezed.
  • COVID-19 is not transmitted through particles in the air and is not something that can enter the body through the skin.

 What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

  • The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to other respiratory illnesses, including the flu and the common cold. These symptoms include fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat and painful swallowing, stuffy or runny nose, loss of sense of smell, headache, muscle aches, fatigue and loss of appetite.
  • People infected with COVID-19 may experience little or no symptoms, with illness ranging from mild to severe.
  • Some people are more vulnerable to developing severe illness or complications from COVID-19,including older people and those with chronic health conditions.

 General Precautions:

  • Stay at home if you are sick to avoid spreading illness to others.
  • Practice diligent hand hygiene at all times.
  • Wash your hands regularly with plain soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use alcohol based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content.
  • Practice cough etiquette. Cough into your elbow or cover your mouth and nose with a disposable tissue when you sneeze. Immediately dispose of all used tissues in an appropriate waste bin and wash your hands right away.
  • Maintain a physical distance of two metres from others at all times.
  • Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Do not share food, drinks, utensils, or cigarettes.

Precautions that Lakes Community Church will take when necessary:

  • Signage has been posted in our facilities to encourage hand hygiene and promote physical distancing among all staff and guests.
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers has been located at entrances.
  • An usher will open the door and lead you to your seat.  Seating will be done from the front to the back of the church.
  • People will be seated every second row.
  • At the end of the service, people will be dismissed from the back to the front of the church.
  • We ask that people not mingle too long in the parking lot so we can maintain 50 people or less at all times.
