River of Life Christian Church COVID Prevention Guidelines for Staff

January 14, 2022

A)  Face Coverings:

    1)  Outdoors:  Not required.  It is recommended to wear a facemask if there is no social distancing.

    2)  Indoors and in vehicles with others:  Must wear a facemask unless you are in a private office alone, regardless of your vaccination status.  If an unvaccinated staff wears a fabric facemask, he/she must wear two layers of a facemask.  Operations Department will provide surgical facemasks and respirators (N-95) to staff upon request.

B)  Social Distancing, Barrier, and Eating/Drinking 

Not required of social distancing and barriers indoors regardless of vaccination status, unless there is an outbreak (3 COVID cases within 14 days).  An unvaccinated staff must not eat or drink in the kitchen but can eat or drink at your own cubicle or office if you are at least 6 feet apart from others.  If an unvaccinated staff wishes to eat with coworkers outdoors, you should still keep at least 6 feet distance.

C)  Check-In and Temperature Screening:

Continue checking in with the cell phone and have a temperature screening when entering the office.

D)  COVID Symptoms:

If you or a family member has any symptoms associated with COVID, you must report to your supervisor immediately and have a self-quarantine for 10 days.  Alternatively, you may return if you have a negative test result 7 or more days as required by the law.  Please let your supervisor and Human Resources know your COVID test result before returning to work.

E)  Positive Test:

If you have the positive test result, you must notify your supervisor immediately.  We must report any COVID cases within 24 hours to the County if the infected person (including employee, contractor, and volunteer) was at our facility within 48 hours before the symptoms began.  We also must be notified OSHA if you are hospitalized since we are required to report any serious illness.  We will have a licensed professional to sanitize and deep clean any exposed area.  An infected person may return to the church campus after 10 days of isolation from the date his/her symptoms began and 24 hours with no fever and any other symptoms have improved.  

F)  Close Contact:

Close contact is defined as someone who was within six feet of the infected person for a cumulative 15 minutes or more within 24 hours during two days before and 10 days after the infected person’s symptoms began.

If you are in close contact with the infected person, you must have a 10-days quarantine even without any symptoms.  While returning, you must wear a face covering and maintain six feet of distance from others for 14 days.  For a fully vaccinated staff without any symptoms, you do not need to be quarantined, but to wear a face covering and maintain six feet of distance from others for 14 days.

G)  Cleaning and Disinfecting:  Operations Department has been performing routinely cleaning and disinfecting all high-touch areas, following CDC guidelines.

Please contact Human Resources (, (510) 440-9833, if you have any questions.  F)  Free COVID Test Sites:  https://scl.fulgentgenetics.com/appointment/screen/landing, and https://curative.com/

ROLCC Guidelines: How to Response To the Omicron Surge?

Jan. 6, 2022

River of Life likes to provide additional ROLCC-specific guidelines for recommended actions and clarifications to COVID related questions. 

The Big Picture: we are entering a very important phase of this Covid pandemic. Omicron is highly transmissible but also less virulent (than Delta and previous variants). Many medical professionals believe that this variant could increase immunity in the community. 

At the Personal Level: we need everyone to work together. This includes remaining vigilant at protecting our health, adhering to the public health guidelines for our community (and for the brave health professionals); and most of all, doing all of the above with a loving heart towards one another as brothers and sisters in Christ. 


If you are attending our Sunday services in person (not serving in any capacity), please observe the following guidelines:

  • If you are feeling sick, please stay home and get tested. Here is a list of Covid symptoms for your reference (Covid Symptoms by CDC)
  • Wear quality fitting masks at all times when you are on church property; no food/drink unless in designated open/outdoors areas with social distance
  • Per COVID-19 vaccine protocols established by the state and county departments of public health, please refer to its protocol for your age group and health condition.
  • Frequent test for COVID exposure and keep others in your close contact group updated if tested positive
  • In case of exposure, please follow public health guidelines for quarantine and/or isolation, and adhere to the updated ROLCC Exposure and Quarantine Guidelines
  • Most importantly, keep each other and our church in your daily prayers, as we walk and work together in the coming 4 to 6 weeks

If you serve in the children and/or the youth ministry, please observe the following guidelines: 

  • Based on inputs and directions of Santa Clara County Public Health COVID Task Force/Hotline, ROLLC organized Youth and or Children Programs are to follow CDPH K-12 Guidance, in addition, all programs we offered are considered in “Non-Cohort” setting
  • We have organized the three separate scenarios and its various responsibilities in the following document (ROLCC Guideline – Children and or Youth Ministry related)
  • With regards to COVID tests and it related decisions, please refer to the following decision tree from Santa Clara County Public Health (view the decision tree)
  • Please be advised the newest update from CDC, Guidance for COVID-19 Prevention in K-12 Schools (1/6/2022) has brought the isolation and quarantine recommendations in line with general public guidance that was revised on 1/4/2022 

If you are staff and or volunteers who serve in the Mandarin or New Wave Sunday services, please observe the following guidelines (in accordance with the OSHA guidelines): 

  • Volunteers in the Mandarin and New Wave Sunday services are treated as staff in accordance with OSHA guideline
  • If you or a member of your household experiences any COVID symptoms, or if you are in close contact (defined below) with an infected individual(s), you must go home immediately or stay home. You must notify your supervisor and/or team lead, and supervisors/team leads shall be responsible for informing HR (Savina and Regina, ) as soon as possible.
  • The definition of close contact is someone who was within six feet of the infected person for a cumulative 15 minutes or more within 24 hours during two days before and 10 days after the infected person’s symptoms began.
  • HR shall inform other staff of possible exposure without providing identifying information about the individual(s) who may have been exposed.  HR will also provide you with the guidelines for returning to work.
