The usual requirements to use hand gel entering and leaving the church, wearing a face mask covering nose and mouth, and observing physical distancing, continue to apply. Additionally, in order to come to church each person will need to have with them a SafePass. Each person must carry proof of one of:
A negative PCR or rapid test, taken within the last 72 hours
Vaccination of at least one dose received at least 3 weeks ago
Having contracted coronavirus in the past 6 months.
The responsibility for this lies with each person. If the church is subject to a surprise police check, anyone without the one of the three proofs listed above will be responsible for any fine imposed.
A Listening Ear
