Screening and Entrance Volunteers Mask Volunteer (2 each week - 1 per service) The Mask volunteer is stationed near the entrance to the building with the purpose of informing/enforcing the mask requirement for service. (Ready 30 min prior to start of worship). The volunteer would be masked (and possibly have a face shield) and would make sure everyone is wearing a mask who is 4 years old and above. If a person is not wearing a mask, they must be informed of the requirement and offered a mask if they do not have one with them. If the person refuses to wear a mask, politely let them know they cannot worship in the sanctuary and to direct them to our online streaming of the service. The mask volunteer would let the office know if we are running low on our mask supply.
Temperature Screening Volunteer (4 each week - 2 per service) The temperature screening volunteer is stationed near the entrance (but not so near as to be affected by the draft) with the purpose of checking the temperature of each person entering the building for worship. Anyone with a temperature of 100 degrees or over will be turned away and encouraged to participate in worship via online streaming. Ready and at station 30 minutes prior to worship. The volunteer must wear both a mask and a face shield (provided by the church) and trained on using the no-touch thermometers. If the person’s temperature is very close to the 100-degree mark, you may wait to recheck.
Check-In Volunteers (2 each week - 1 per service) The Check-in Volunteer will be stationed after the temperature and mask checks for the purpose of tracking who is attending worship. In case we have someone attend worship who tests positive for Covid-19, we must provide a list of who was all in attendance for contact tracing purposes. Ready and at station 30 minutes prior to worship. The volunteer will wear a mask and a face shield. You will ask for the name of those entering and have a list of those already in our database. If they are in the database, you check them off. If they are not in the database, we need a name and contact information (phone or email). At the beginning of the service, the volunteer will also take a photo of those in the sanctuary from the front for contact tracing mapping purposes. These photos and the list will be submitted to the church office.
Ushers (4 each week - 2 per service) The Ushers (wearing face masks) will be stationed at the back of the sanctuary with the purpose of directing people where to sit and dismissing people at the end of the service. Ready and at station 30 minutes prior to worship. Stay after worship until tasks completed. The pews will be marked off for each service, so people can only sit in open pews. Direct those with small children (under 4 are not required to mask) to sit in one area of the sanctuary apart from the more vulnerable elderly members of the church. At the end of the service, dismiss the pews from back to front, allowing for proper social distancing as people leave. After the first service is dismissed, move the pew markers to the next set of pews in preparation for the second service. Direct people to the offering buckets (if needed) and help keep people moving when entering or exiting the building.
