COVID-19 SAFETY AT ST. TIMOTHY'S as of May 26, 2021
Fully vaccinated people are not required to wear masks in worship, including while singing.
Fully vaccinated people are not required to distance and may sit anywhere in the nave.
Anyone who is not fully vaccinated and over the age of 2 is expected to wear a mask while indoors.
Unvaccinated people who do not wear masks do so at their own risk.
Anyone who feels uncomfortable not wearing a mask, even if fully vaccinated, is encouraged to wear a mask.
The chapel space within the church is reserved for those who wish to continue to socially distance in worship. Masks are required for all in the chapel. Those who wish to sit in the chapel are encouraged to enter the side door closest to the chapel. Clergy will bring the sacrament to those seated in the chapel.
No one should feel obligated to pass the Peace by shaking hands. The recent practice of passing the Peace with a nod or a wave is entirely acceptable.
All participating choir members must be fully vaccinated.
At the Eucharist, the sacrament will continue to be distributed in “one kind” (bread only) which is a full measure of grace. Anyone serving communion in a service with both vaccinated and unvaccinated people will wear a mask.
We will continue to livestream services at 10:30 am. Anyone at risk of COVID-19 or who otherwise feels more comfortable worshipping from home may continue to do so.
