Wellness Policy

At VBS, we strive to provide a healthy environment for all and as that those experiencing symptoms of communicable illnesses refrain from in-person activities.

Due to COVID-19, we cannot emphasize enough the importance of following our wellness policy.  If in the last 14 days, you or someone you are bringing, have been told to quarantine by a medical or government official, had a fever, or a persistent dry cough or shortness of breath, we ask that you please stay home.  We appreciate your care and consideration for others.

If you or one of your children are experiencing any of the below symptoms of communicable illnesses, we ask that you please keep them at home.

Additional COVID precautions…

  • All VBS activities will be outside unless of thunderstorms, VBS will be canceled. The bathrooms in the church will be available.

  • We will be following the CDC Guidelines as mandated as the time of VBS.

  • Games – we will try as much as possible to use non-contact.   If equipment is required, we will have two sets so we can sanitize the equipment between each station. 

  • We will provide a designated sick child area away from all other children with a VBS staff and parents will be notified immediately if your child starts feeling unwell.

 

Last but not least…

  • All our VBS staff are sorry for all the rules and regulations, but we have guidelines and protocols to follow.  We are trying to have the most memorable VBS as well as a safe place for children to be.  We as a Community VBS will not be at fault if your child or any staff gets COVID.  We will keep VBS sanitized as much as possible.
