West Parish has Covid Protocols in place to prioritize loving our neighbors and making decisions as a community, so that we can create a welcoming space to gather together.

 

Vaccinate: All attendees who are 5 and older must be up-to-date on their Covid vaccinations or have a negative Covid test within 48 hours of the service.

 

Mask: Tight-fitting over nose and mouth masks are to be worn at all times in church. We prefer that you wear an N95 or KN95 mask, however you may wear a multi-layered tight-fighting mask.   Access this article to learn more about high-quality masks and where to find them.

 

Appreciate: Please sign up in advance and check in with an usher upon arrival to make gathering information to do contract tracing easier. Stay home if you have any Covid symptoms.

 

Communicate: Notify the church administrator if you develop Covid symptoms or test positive within 14 days. 

 

Attendees understand that you are assuming risk by attending and agree to release West Parish from all liability.   Please contact the church office if you have any questions!  

 

Blessings – and hope to see you at Sunday Worship!

Singing.  We will enjoy beautiful organ music!  Additionally, Hymn singing by the congregation will occur during the last hymn with the congregation still masked.  This will enable individuals - who are not comfortable with group singing  - the ability to leave before the hymn starts.
