Do You Need to Update Your Kidmin Wellness Policies and Procedures?


As we begin to slowly reopen our children’s ministry, we are updating our wellness and sick policies. I wanted to share them in case your church is in this process as well. Our policies are a work in process, so I would also LOVE your input and know what you are doing. Please comment and let’s make this a collaboration!

Updated Wellness Policies

We ask that your child please not attend if:

  • They have had a fever in the last 72 hours.
  • They are exhibiting any symptoms of illness, including:
    • Any flu-like symptoms
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • Fatigue
    • Muscle or body aches
    • Headache
    • New loss of taste or smell
    • Sore throat
    • Congestion or runny nose
    • Nausea or vomiting
    • Diarrhea
  • They have been exposed to someone with a positive Covid-19 diagnosis within the past 14 days.

Updated Wellness Procedures
