Current Safety Guidelines

Updated 1/6/22

 

In light of the increased number of cases of COVID-19 in our community and the pressure on our health care system, we are reimplementing some COVID mitigation protocols. We recognize that this is not the ideal way of being together, but we want to gather in a way that minimizes the spread of coronavirus in our community.  We see this as a way that we can show love and concern for each other, our neighbors, and health care workers.  The new guidelines are as follows: 

 

(1) MASKS  The church board has decided we will continue to offer in-person services, but masks will be required of persons 2 years of age and older.  We intend to have masks available for those who may need them.  Further, we encourage people in light of the high transmissibility of the omicron variant to consider wearing a three-ply surgical, N95, or KN95 mask for better protection.  

(2) SOCIAL DISTANCING We are asking family units to maintain 6 feet of spacing.  Please sit in the pews where they are marked with blue tape and pay attention to spacing as you enter and leave the building. 

(3) SANITIZER We encourage everyone to make use of the hand-sanitizer that is available.  

(4) VIRTUAL Please remember that there is an option to attend virtually.  If you are experiencing cold symptoms or have had a significant exposure to someone who has been sick, this is the best option for you.  We livestream our service at https://www.facebook.com/SilverdaleChurchBIC.  

If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to reach out by calling the church office at 215-257-4272.
