Our COVID Safety Team determined the following general guideline: We will follow a “2 out of 3” standard for risk mitigation. This means any gathering must follow 2 out of these 3 safety measures: gathering outdoors, maintaining social distance, wearing a mask. We will honor and respect that we may not know the vaccination status, or other health status of people who attend our in-person worship or any other gathering and how being together with others may impact their health. For indoor worship, we will maintain social distancing and wear masks.
Good hygiene and cleaning measures are also part of the safety plan. Bathrooms will be cleaned additional times prior to and after worship. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the indoor space.
Please choose to attend online worship if you have recently tested positive for COVID, are waiting for COVID test results, have any COVID or other flu/cold symptoms (even if you are vaccinated), or have had close contact with someone who is positive or having symptoms.
Any time the indoor space of St. Peter’s is being utilized, maintaining distance and wearing masks will be priority. Distancing will be our greatest challenge and require the most cooperation to achieve. Please do not gather for conversation anywhere in the building including in the Sanctuary, Front Entryway, Fellowship Hall, or Bathrooms. We encourage connection to happen outdoors. Please refrain from handshakes, hugs, and close conversation. We encourage waves, air hugs, and connecting outdoors. Distancing can also be easier to maintain if you think about any area outside of the Sanctuary is for moving through and the area inside the Sanctuary is for staying in your space.
