Lewans Agency Guidelines/Protective Measures for personal visits during Covid-19

The vision of our founder, the Venerable Fr. Michael J. McGivney, was to protect Catholic families in times of need.  As we navigate through these challenging times and look to continue that mission, the Saskatchewan Knights of Columbus Agency through its dedicated agents, have implemented the following Best Practices to ensure your safety as we strive to meet the needs of our members and their families. 

  1. As always, appointments will be pre-arranged and confirmed.
  2. Upon arrival at your residence, your field agent will call to notify of his arrival so he can be met at the door to limit contact with any doorbells or surfaces. Footwear will remain outside of the house for further safety.
  3. Your field agent will maintain a 2-metre distance from you and your family. A meeting at the kitchen table or similar venue will facilitate this.
  4. Your field agent will avoid touching any surfaces when at all possible.
  5. Your field agent will use hand sanitizer before entering your home and before starting the meeting.
  6. Sorry, but we won’t shake hands; even elbow pumps are a little too close.
  7. Your field agent will have his own pen, please be prepared with your own. No sharing pens!
  8. When required, quotes will be sent electronically ahead of time to facilitate a more timely discussion and follow up questions. Please print off a copy of the illustration for easy review. 
  9. Your field agent will graciously decline to have a coffee or other beverage.
  10. Your field agent will not ask to use your washroom.
  11. The application process can be handled electronically and signed as such.
  12. In the days leading up to your appointment, if you have shown ANY signs of Covid-19, please reschedule your appointment. The field agent will reciprocate.  A meeting by Skype can be arranged as an alternative.
  13. In the days leading up to your appointment, if you have been around anyone who has shown ANY signs of Covid-19, please reschedule your appointment. The field agent will reciprocate.  A meeting by Skype can be arranged as an alternative.
  14. In the 2 weeks before your appointment, if you have been outside of Saskatchewan for any reason, please reschedule your appointment. A meeting by Skype can be arranged as an alternative.
  15. If requested, the field agent will wear a mask during the meeting.
  16. After the meeting please clean your table and wash your hands as per provincial guidelines.
