COVID19 guidance for those wishing to attend a service
The decision to attend public worship, particularly for those at extra risk (ie over the age of 70) and ‘clinically extremely vulnerable’ during the current COVID19 pandemic with the risks associated, is the individual’s own.
Please follow Government guidance* and in particular:
- Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19, even if they are mild, should not attend. They should self-isolate immediately and get a PCR test.
- If someone has been instructed by NHS Test and Trace to self-isolate because they have tested positive for COVID-19, or they are not fully vaccinated and have had close contact with someone who has tested positive, they must self-isolate and not attend.
To mitigate the risks, COVID19 measures continue to be in place in the Church building. To protect yourself and others, it would be appreciated if those attending public services could adhere to the following:
- Use hand sanitiser on entering and leaving the church. Supplies are in church.
- Only sit on pews allocated for the congregation (people from the same household or “bubble” can sit together)
- Maintain social distance where possible and provide the opportunity and space for others to reduce close contacts if they wish.
- Wear a face covering in the church building. Please bring your own.
- Use the QR code for track and trace provided in the church porch for easy contact details (or complete the list when provided)
- Try to touch as few surfaces as possible.
