HSE team thinks ahead to reopening of churches, schools

Everyone has to take precautions against COVID-19. This vigilance does not end when restrictions are lifted. The Health Safety and Environment (HSE) Team of the Archdiocese is mulling preventive measures when RC schools and churches are reopened.

The HSE has issued four bulletins: ‘SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19’ March 31; ‘Social Support Measures: Social Assistance from the Government during COVID-19 Crisis’ April 3; ‘Guidelines for residential religious communities & faith-based independent living facilities in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Port of Spain in response to COVID-19 ’ April 14; ‘Recommendations for Receiving and Delivering Food and Other Aid’ April 24. The documents can be viewed at

The HSE Team is doing research in anticipation of the reopening of schools, churches, and Archbishop’s House. Nestor Lambert, HSE coordinator said, “We are working on things right now in advance of the release of guidelines by the Health Ministry.”
