Updating Our Kidmin Wellness Policies and Procedures

As we begin to slowly reopen our children’s ministry, we are updating our wellness/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

  • Volunteers will be temperature checked
  • Small groups – 6 – 8 kids. 
  • Sanitizing in between services and alternating toys each serviceas much as possible
  • Limiting shared supplies as much as possible.
  • We will not be serving snack during our 45 minute service.


  • Sounds like a good plan. We had 2 Sunday’s where we had one class of kids, only 4 kids. Some Sundays in the sanctuary where families sat together we only had one or two kids at all. Then we had a conference over two weekends so no in person service. Then the virus hit our congregation big time, over 30 tested positive. So back to online. We are going to do a service in the park on the 16th. I have no idea when we can have kidsmin again.
