The purpose of this brief announcement is to inform anyone associated with City Bible Forum of our current policy in response to the COVID-19 health crisis.
City Bible Forum will ensure it complies with government legislation, regulations and health orders in relation to the COVID-19 health crisis.
City Bible Forum will keep abreast of non-mandated public health advice, taking a risk approach in what is observed, whilst, at all times, encouraging staff to adopt appropriate levels of personal safety. This includes safe practices to avoid transmission of the coronavirus to protect the vulnerable in our communities.
City Leaders are responsible for monitoring requirements specific to their State and ensuring that City Bible Forum gatherings, events and workplaces comply with prevailing State government legislation, regulations and health orders.
A risk assessment is prepared in advance of City Bible Forum events and gatherings, with approval by the applicable City Leader.
City Bible Forum events, gatherings and workplaces will ensure:
- The names and contact of all attendees are recorded, by whatever means is most practicable.
- Signage is provided directing that those with flu like symptoms not attend the event, gathering or workplace.
- Hand sanitiser and face masks are made available for use to the extent required by law or otherwise as desired.
- Physical distancing of 1.5 metres is encouraged.
- Any State specific requirements are observed, with reference to the following links.
City Bible Forum offices remain open (unless a State lockdown is enacted) and staff may work at the City Bible Forum office or another suitable, and safe, location (including a home office) in consultation with their Supervisor and/or City Leader.
Due to ongoing uncertainty and volatility, any travel by a staff member outside of their home State requires the prior approval of the Managing Director before a booking is made, with bookings made in accordance with the City Bible Forum Travel Policy.
In these unsettling times and it is understandable that many may be anxious. It is in these times that we look to the one who has all things under His control.
Philippians 4:6, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
Peter Kaldor, Managing Director
