A church in the Midlands wanted to re-open safely following the announcement that people may visit places of worship as long as social distancing measures are in place. While places of worship are exempt from the ‘rule of 6’, it is not a blanket exemption for all activities in a place of worship.
The church had prepared the essential social distancing measures beforehand, such as measures to keep guests two meters apart and limiting the number of people allowed inside the church at the same time, they wanted to make the church safer and easier for people to comply with social distancing.
The aim was to supply the most suitable products for helping their staff and guests to maintain social distancing in all areas of the church. Portable Partitions Company recommended and supplied a range of high-quality protection screens and room dividers to help control the spread of germs and viruses whilst also enabling people to visit the church.
How Portable Partitions Company Helped
The experts at Portable Partitions Company supplied a range of products to help the church separate certain areas.
Creating a one-way system. To help the church create an effective one-way system, one of the products supplied was the Clearview Divider 360. This is a high-quality plexiglass transparent room divider which can be used to create social distancing. It’s a portable solution that can be easily sanitised and stored away when not in use.
By having this room divider run from the main entrance all the way through the middle of the church, this allowed a one-way system to be implemented where guests would enter through the left side of the main entrance and exit through the right side of the main entrance.
Separating the pews. One of the key areas that needed separating was the church pews. While the pews had been separated to maintain enough distance between each row, the church didn’t have much space to create effective distancing on the sides. The Clearview Freestanding Screen was recommended in this instance as it’s a singular freestanding protection screen that can be placed on the ends of the pews to create a protective barrier between each pew.
Minimising contact points. In areas of the church where direct contact is required, the Floor Standing Screen was recommended to protect staff and guest. These standing screens have small cutouts which enable items to be passed through and can be used for a variety of applications.
These room dividers provided helped to increase the safety for all worshippers. The use of transparent protection screens enables visitors to have a similar church experience and it enables them to pray in their own area.
