Covid-19

Northside Catholic Youth Ministry is blessed to provide in-person ministry for youth. We pray for all who have suffered because of Covid-19 and the decisions made by authorities to shut down schools, churches, and businesses. In our return to in-person ministry, we aim to provide a safe space for youth to grow in community with each other and in their relationship with God. That said, there remains a risk to participating in in-person activities. Participants knowingly and voluntarily assume this risk associated with participation.

For those who are not comfortable participating in-person at this time, we respect that decision. Last spring, we hosted virtual bible studies and we encourage those interested to reach out to us to form a group.

We ask that families and youth self-screen before attending any in-person activities. See below for self-screening questions.

Self-Screening

In order to provide a safe environment for all, please answer the following questions before attending any in-person youth ministry gatherings.

1. Does the youth have any of the following symptoms not related to a known cause?

✔ A cough

✔ Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

✔ A fever of 100.4°F or higher or a sense of having a fever

✔ A sore throat

✔ Chills

✔ New loss of taste or smell

✔ Muscle or body aches

✔ Nausea/vomiting/diarrhea

✔ Congestion/running nose – not related to seasonal allergies

✔ Unusual fatigue

2. Does anyone in the household have any of the above symptoms not related to a known cause?

3. Has the youth been in close contact with anyone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19?

4. Has the youth recently needed medication to reduce a fever?

 

 

If the answer to any of the questions above is “yes”, we ask that the youth does not attend any in-person ministry activities until all answers are "no".
