      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True

    Guests are more susceptible to getting sick than staff and volunteers because guests are typically not as familiar with the environment and may not practice good hygiene habits. They may also come into contact with more people and surfaces, increasing their risk of exposure to germs. Additionally, guests may be more likely to have compromised immune systems due to travel or other factors, making them more susceptible to illness. Staff and volunteers, on the other hand, are likely to be more familiar with the environment and may have better hygiene practices, reducing their risk of getting sick.

    Explanation
    All guests should be treated as adults as a general rule of hospitality.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is false that you can invite a guest who is ill to remain at the church during the day. The church is not a suitable place for someone who is ill as it may not have the necessary facilities or resources to provide proper care and support. It would be more appropriate for the ill guest to seek medical attention or stay in a more suitable environment for their recovery.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is important to respect a guest's personal space because everyone has their own boundaries and comfort levels. Respecting personal space shows consideration and can make guests feel more comfortable and at ease. Invading someone's personal space can make them feel uncomfortable, anxious, or even threatened. Respecting personal space is a basic social etiquette that helps maintain positive interactions and relationships with others.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
