There are plenty of different ways of learning and growing at BPC - for all ages! Why not give some new ways a try? ... See MoreSee Less

Positive case of Covid-19

Dear friends,

We can confirm that someone who has been in the church building has tested positive for Covid-19. The individual has informed NHS Test and Protect of their attendance at the church building in order that effective contact tracing may take place.

We would wish to reassure you that we have in place all the recommended infection prevention and control measures and a thorough cleaning programme for our church building.

Since we have been made aware, additional cleaning and ventilation has taken place and cleaning routines have been verified as having been carried out.

It remains important to remember that mixing socially in the community without maintaining appropriate measures helps the virus to spread widely. It is therefore important that people remain vigilant and follow the guidance from the Scottish Government.

The Scottish Government are actively encouraging everyone to undertake two Lateral Flow tests a week even if they do not display Covid-19 symptoms. We recommend that you follow this advice and home testing kits are available from most local community pharmacies or online at www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests

Individuals who experience any Covid-19 symptoms such as a cough, fever or loss of taste or smell, even if they are mild, should isolate immediately and get tested. Information on how to access testing is available at www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test

If you have any questions about coronavirus please visit www.nhsinform.scot in the first instance, or call the helpline on 0800 028 2816

Can I ask why this is news that needs to be shared? It is neither reassuring or helpful to know and since the time and date of their visit is not mentioned, then there are no actions for those who do wish to meet, besides the government guidelines. Happy to pray for the individual/ family concerned of course, but it is not newsworthy.

🙏
