CHURCHES CLOSED: WHY?

 

 

                                                      "BECAUSE OF  COVID-19, ITSELF"

 

It is transferred from person-to-person through respiratory droplets; the economic slowdown; the CDC’s Guidelines/Requirements of “frequent disinfection of surfaces and objects touched by multiple people is important,” to provide a safe and healthy Church to re-open, close, and re-open again during the same day, night, or week, etc..  Similarly, establishing the CDC policies of creating a Preventative Maintenance Program within Churches, requires additional personnel, equipment, supplies, and most of all more funds.  It seems as though you have no other alternative than to hire an additional cleaning company/personnel to have a COVID-19, Safe & Healthy Church Environment -- NOT TRUE While most of our congregations have underlying medical conditions, that the Virus seeks out and imparts severe illness upon and possibly resulting into dangerous conditions and perhaps even a fatality.


Let’s face it, our congregations are frightened of developing this Virus and therefore are not eager to returning to our Churches  and they truly have a right to be concerned about the unknown. QUESTIONS:  Have the Church Leadership established a designated team that is active and informing the congregations on the status of the Virus and conditions within their Church; and are the congregations getting any written communications, flyers, or hand-outs, from the Church or the local municipalities concerning the latest requirements for re-opening; and are You, The Leadership of the Church aware of what is going on?   A NO answer to any of the above questions should tell you a lot about why your Church is closed.  Furthermore, Churches no longer have the manpower nor the excess income to spend and we cannot ask or expect our congregations to do the constant wiping and cleaning of our facility, possibly exposing themselves (and us) to the Infectious Coronavirus – 19.  So, now what do we do as a Church to Eradicate this Virus from our Houses of Worship? 

First, form a Church COVID-19 Response Team, then follow CDC/EPA Guidelines, and contact Hummingbird and let’s get to work.  Hummingbird has spent the last eight months researching this Virus and exploring CDC’s Guidelines  -  and we know what to do.  Our CEO  has over 20 years’ experience in the Operation & Management of the United States Air Force, Full-Foodservice and Janitorial/Custodial (SIC 5812 & 7349) Contracts at various Air Force Bases.  He originated and implemented a Quality Assurance Evaluator/Manager Program that included daily compliance with the Food & Drug Administration which included daily performance food preparations for sanitation, equipment, and Performance Work Statement (PWS) Audits.   Hummingbird Environmental Consultants, LLC., SHALL follow the guidelines provided for all operational facilities and industries in the USA.  All we must do is to follow what “God has provided us through the CDC.”  Hummingbird is going to make sure you follow what the CDC have developed for distressed Churches.  

Therefore, if you  decide to follow our lead, then you must  purchase your own mandatory equipment and supplies at a cost lower than a one, two-or-three-time cleaning job(s) performed by one of the companies out there – we hope you are aware of the cost, if not you should find out as soon as possible. Hummingbird will assist you in establishing and maintaining CDC/EPA Guidelines for killing The Coronavirus-19, by means of Sanitation Equipment, Chemical Cleaning Solutions (Vital Oxide) as well as the precise PPE, and Infrared Thermometer, etc.  Hummingbird  will also teach your Church COVID-19 Response Team how to use and maintain the necessary equipment and supplies they need to use to eradicate the Virus.  The key to this process is to follow what has been provided by the: Federal, State, and local offices affiliated with the CDC/EPA. In addition to the foregoing, it is imperative/mandatory that we follow the-letter-of-the-law, concerning instructions provided by the manufacturers of the mandatory Fogging, Spraying, Electrostatic and Atomizing equipment and Vital Oxide Residential, Commercial & Hospital Grade Disinfectant.  This product is the best of the best, period!  We will be utilizing Vital Oxide Disinfectant for “Decontaminating & Sanitizing Churches, Homes & Other Facilities. Therefore, Keeping Human Pathogens/Viruses Out of Your/Our Environment.” Your one-time acquisition from Hummingbird will save you Thousands of Dollars now and in the future!  Additionally, Hummingbird hope you agree with us that the old method of spay and hand-wipe and the handheld pump sprayers have become the Elephant-In-The-Room, somewhat useful but not effective at saving energy, time, and money. 

Consequently, you will be utilizing the technological advancements of today.  Such as, Ultra Low Volume, (ULV) Fogging machines which are cold fogging machines that use large volumes of air at low pressures to transform liquid into small droplets that are dispersed into the atmosphere. They are used for applying sterilizers, disinfectants, pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides, amongst other chemicals. Various businesses are currently enjoying the great health benefits of these incredible disinfecting/sanitizing machines:  Airlines, Restaurants, Gyms, Hospitals, Doctor Offices, Churches, Government Agencies and Bars & Grills; just to name a few.  The treatment is amazingly simple.  First, clean the Church and then let the machines do the work of emitting tiny droplets of our specially formulated chemical preparation into the open areas – “Vital Oxide.”

 Some Churches are having in-person services now, by appointments only; meaning the congregation(s) must call-in and request seating reservations for the services they wish to attend – You know your Church’s CDC limits, so you now must control and permit only that number of parishioners in per service.  Those members not able to attend in-person services, should be able to attend the services via telecom, internet such as, Zoom, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, etc. You must also provide the COVID-19 PRIMARY SCREENING SCRIPT, prior to entry. NO MASK – NO ENTRY, NO EXCEPTIONS!  Take temperature(s), keep your 6 ft distance, and READ:  COVID-19 PRIMARY SCREENING SCRIPT. You must inform your Church that seating is extremely limited due to the restrictions imposed by the CDC, CA State, and local municipalities, concerning How-To Safety Re-open Your Church.   Remembering – The 6 ft rule apply from the time the member(s) enter into the Church and, they must wear their masks at all times, until they leave the Church.  Your inhouse COVID-19 Response Team have already insured that the Church has been disinfected, sanitized and is setup according the CDC Guidelines.   

After your first service is over and the Church is now closed; you should now decontaminate and sanitize the Church following the same  procedures as per the first service or the day.  It is also suggested, that during the collections of funds the members should remain seated and collections should be assigned to Deacons/Ushers wearing gloves and observing the 6 ft rule.  Further, all collected funds should be passed on to the responsible financial personnel who are also required to wear gloves and should sanitize all collected funds  via Vital Oxide liquid disinfectant.  Finally, you might want to install a piece of plexiglass (three-piece section) around the Minister’s Stand/Podium. Please continue to review the website and you might find what you and your Church need to re-open.  Hummingbird is willing and able to assist you and your congregations.
