                                             MANSFIELD CATHOLIC PARISH COVID SAFE PLAN

 

Hygiene Requirements:

 It is recommended that face coverings be worn if you can’t physically distance, if you have any symptoms, or if you are with people who may be vulnerable to COVID-19. Avoid sharing of food and drink (does not apply if catered in accordance with COVID safety regulations).

Where possible, enhance airflow (opening windows and adjusting air conditioning).

 

Sanitizing and Cleaning:

Hand sanitiser stations in church entrances and St Mary’s Hall.

Ensure surfaces are cleaned and disinfected regularly.

Cleaning and disinfection of any shared equipment or furniture between groups (where use cannot be avoided).

Practice good hygiene – Sanitize hands.

After each service sanitize the pews or furniture used with the sanitizing napkins provided in the churches/buildings.

Musical instruments must be wiped with a disinfectant wipe between uses.

 

Physical distancing:

 

Configure areas and apply density quotients (in churches and buildings). Consider installing barriers.

Avoid carpooling where possible (unless with members of same household).

 

Record keeping:

Using the Victoria QR Code all people who enter the churches and church halls to enter their names and phone numbers for contact tracing purposes or a contacting tracing register for names and phone numbers. This includes ALL visitors, employees, contractors, clergy, volunteers, and parishioners.

All staff and volunteers must provide proof of COVID Vaccine.

 

Religious Gatherings/Ceremonies/Visits:

Visits to Bindaree and Buckland Care Facilities and also Mansfield Hospital are subject to facility Guidelines. Only fully vaccinated are permitted to visit homes.

Under no circumstances should anyone having symptoms, awaiting a COVID-19 test verification, including Clergy (even without presenting symptoms) attend a church or parish setting until a diagnosis is confirmed. Additionally, under no circumstances should anyone attend who is closely connected to people who are awaiting test results or who have tested positive.

If any cases get detected use the contact tracing details to notify others, including DHHS and WorkSafe, close the office, parish and parish facilities. The Archdiocese to be notified as well.

 

In accordance with Victorian pandemic orders under the new Public Health and Wellbeing Act, new guidelines are in place from 11.59pm Wednesday, 15 December 2021  until 12 January 2022. Accordingly there will not be any vaccination requirements nor any requirement to check vaccination status at Places of Worship for Weddings, Funerals, and general Worship. QR check-ins are still required at Places of Worship, even though vaccination status does not need to be checked. So  in Mansfield Catholic Parish there will be no Vaccination Status Required at Masses. 

Please note that other activities outside of worship, particularly those activities that involve hospitality, will require full vaccination for participation and will entail QR code check-ins and COVID Marshals. This will apply to varying activities held within the parish-context. 

Face coverings no longer need to be worn at weddings, funerals, or worship.
Face coverings continue to be required indoors in limited high-risk settings including retail, health care and aged care.
It is recommended that face coverings be worn if you are with people who may be vulnerable to COVID-19.
