This Covid Safety Plan was developed to minimize the risk due to Covid-19.

4.  Do not handle anyone else’s belongings.

5.  Do not go into areas in the church other than the sanctuary and washrooms.

6. If you or a family member are sick or have been sick with COVID-19 symptoms in past 5 days, do not come to rehearsal. If you or a family member are under the direction of the provincial health office to self-isolate, do not come to rehearsal.
