NEWS October 23, 2020

On October 22 there was a new order from the Provincial Health Officer that specifies a change related to the duration of time now required between church services in order to sanitize the space. The Provincial Health Officer now specifies (LINKED HERE) that all groups holding events (to include churches hosting liturgies) allow at least one hour between those events so that proper sanitization of spaces can be fully completed where those events/liturgies are held may occur. All other previous requirements remain in force under this new order.
 
While this may not affect many of you immediately, it may affect what you are planning to offer on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.
 
Please let us know if you have any questions about this. We will be modifying our protocols posted on the diocesan website to reflect this. If you need to modify your own safety plans or scheduled in-person worship times as a result of this new order, please do so and post your modified plan both on your website and in your physical space.
 
With respect and care,
 
+Melissa, Tellison+ and Philippa+
