Here are a couple of precautions relevant to youth groups:
- Find new ways of greeting each other, use something different to handshakes.
- Provide hand sanitiser at the beginning of youth group and encourage youth to wash their hands often (especially if they are eating/preparing food) and for 20 secs.
- Check with your Vicar about any changes to the way you ‘pass the peace’ or receive communion ( i.e. dipping the wafer in the wine is strongly discouraged by the diocese).
- Remind youth that if they have a temperature or are feeling sick to stay at home
