The original risk assessment was implemented on 14th June 2020 and updated several times up to 5th November 2020. I Surinder Kaur Sahota Trustee and Corona Virus Compliance Officer is happy to discuss any query relating to this updated document.
Due to the various changes since then, this is now the latest document and covers all aspects of the government guidelines restrictions for our Croydon community.
Specific consideration has been given to the demographic, location, building layout, usual processes and behaviours and the potential increased risks of cross-contamination to Croydon’s Sangat. This risk assessment has been made with utmost regard for the health, safety and wellbeing of the Granthis, Sangat and any other member of the public who visits Croydon Gurdwara.
In conclusion, the re-opening of this place of worship will continue to be undertaken in stages, in compliance with the law and with extreme caution. Covid-19 not only affects a disproportionate number of ethnic minorities but there is also known vulnerabilities such as age and pre-existing medical conditions.
This document has been reviewed and updated to show all the tiers and timings for our place of worship in Croydon. It also takes into account spiritual major events such as Bandhi Chor divas and Guru Nanak Dev Ji Birthday celebrations.
Due to the confusion with the local authorities, this section has been added, as Religious Festivals and shows what we did on the above mentioned events as a guideline. This was whilst in Tier 2 guidelines were in place.
