What You Can Expect of Your Hagood Leadership

 

  • Our custodial team is diligently cleaning our facilities including hard surfaces, door knobs, and restrooms. Hagood has purchased a KAMO disinfectant fog/haze unit that can cover the entire sanctuary in 10 minutes killing 99.9% of germs. This KAMO disinfectant machine is the same units that are use in hospitals, doctors offices, and some schools. We will clean thoroughly before & after any services.

  • We will limit our worship service to no more than 30% capacity. Proper social distancing protocols of up to 6 feet apart will be in place.

  • Hand sanitizer will be provided upon entering and exiting the building. The main entrances of the foyer will have “touchless” motion sensor sanitizers at both entrances. Other bottles can be found in bathrooms and foyer table

  • Specific entrances and exits will be used to limit cross-flow of traffic.

  • Our leadership, staff and deacons will wear masks.

  • We will seat you in a predetermined strategy.

  • If someone tests positive for Covid-19 after a service, after talking with them we will notify everyone at that service so they can take adequate precautions.

 

What We Ask of Our Hagood Family

  • The use of masks is recommended and encouraged but not mandatory. Remember that a face covering is meant to protect other people.

  • Make every effort to maintain a distance of six feet apart from others (this includes refraining from shaking hands, embracing or other physical contact).

  • Refrain from coming to a service if you or anyone else you have been around shows symptoms of COVID-19.

  • If you are particularly vulnerable to COVID-19 because of any risk factors, we encourage you to refrain from coming to any event taking place at Hagood.

  • If you have any reason (work or family) that you have to be tested for COVID, we graciously ask that you stay home. In the case that you test positive for COVID-19 and you’ve attended one of our services, please inform our office or ministry leaders of the service/event/date you attended immediately.
