For the health and safety of all our children, we have adopted a health and immunization policy at Church of the Redeemer.

We have developed this health-related policy for our children’s ministry using a best-practices approach from medical authorities. We ask parents not to leave their child in a class if they have had the following symptoms within the last 24 hours:

  • A known or suspected infectious illness
  • A fever of 100.0 within the past 24 hours
  • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or is feeling unwell
  • Cough, sore throat, croup (except in the case of allergy)
  • Colored runny noses
  • Common cold
  • Contagious skin rash
  • Pink eye
  • Lice
  • Infected wounds
  • Any symptom of communicable childhood disease such as mumps, measles, chicken pox, etc.
  • Use of antibiotics for 24 hours or less
  • Has an immediate family member who has had a fever in the past 24 hours (important for nursery especially)

Please note: All nursery workers need to be up-to-date on all recommended vaccinations to protect the health of infants 12 months and under due to vulnerable immune systems. Also, an annual flu shot is recommended.
