COVID-19 Measures

Stepping Out and Staying Safe

Team Members, Leaders, volunteers and Hosts are responsible for working with staff to deliver a COVID safe environment by ensuring the following protocols:


  1. Symptoms are Serious
    No-one with COVID-19 symptoms (high temperature (over 37.8oC), new or continuous cough or change of taste or smell) can participate an Exodus event or gathering

    • All participants should be asked to confirm lack of symptoms before joining.

    • Any existing participant who starts showing symptoms must be shown to an isolation space and get a PCR test at their earliest convenience.

  2. Outside is Optimal
    Activities will be organised to be held outside where possible.

  3. Masks Matter
    All participants must wear face coverings at all times indoors (unless medically exempt).

    • The only exceptions are when:

      • You are having food or a snack (limited to 10 mins)

      • In a toilet or washroom alone.

  4. Spray & Sanitise
    All participants should have good hand washing & sanitising and surfaces and touch points should be consistently wiped down.

  5. Care in Cars
    Most activities wil not require young people to be transported but if they do, everyone in a vehicle must wear masks and have windows open.

    • Drivers are responsible with young people to comply with this.

    • Touch points in the car should be wiped down after use.

  6. Deliver on Distancing
    Participants should maintain 1m social distancing when indoors

    • Activities should be planned to enable distancing and avoid unstructured times indoors that can often lead to loss of distancing

  7. Track and Trace
    The name, contact details and covid status of all participants  should be registered and kept.

    • Team members are recorded automatically through their involvement.

    • Hosts or organisers of gatherings such as kids clubs, youth groups or other projects are responsible for following government regulations and recording details for track and trace.

  8. Residential Requirements
  9. Residentials will include the following:
    • A lateral flow test to be taken by all participants prior to joining the group.
    • Shared rooms or tents to be limited to people from 3 households and 1m social distancing maintained.

Please let an Exodus staff member know if you have tested positive following an event.
