How we continue to keep you safe

We at Crowhurst Christian Healing Centre will do all we can to ensure that CCHC remains a safe place for residential guests, visitors and staff. Please help us to keep you safe by following these simple measures:

·         At CCHC, we will ensure public spaces, including the chapels are well ventilated.

·         Face masks and face coverings: we are no longer advising the wearing of face coverings, but all guests and visitors who wish to continue wearing a mask are welcome to do so. 

·         If you feel unwell, please do not visit CCHC either as a residential guest or visit Howard’s Well.

·         If you test positive for Covid, please do not visit CCHC as a guest or a visitor

·         If you are staying at CCHC and develop symptoms of Covid, please let the office know as soon as possible, and if you can, do a lateral flow test, (we encourage you to bring a test with you!). If the test is positive, we reserve the right to ask you to return home.

Continue to practise good hand hygiene, using the sanitisers provided.
