Is your building safe?On Monday, May 18, 2020 the Governor of the state of Massachusetts included "places of worship" during phase one of reopening. We have had in-person services with precautionary measures since May 31, 2020. We are as safe as humanly possible. Below is our weekly approach to a safe and sanitary place to worship.
Safety is based on a cooperative effort to adhere to the MA Safety Standards for places of worship.
In-person Sunday services will be streamlined and not to exceed 50% of our maximum capacity.
Social distancing is a precautionary measure that will be observed before, during, and after every Service.
We will touch as little as possible, for example we will not handle or pass offering plates, or distribute bulletins. We must refrain from shaking hands, hugging, and from touching our own eyes, nose, and mouth. Offering plates will remain on a table in the rear of the auditorium for gifts and offerings. Hand sanitizer will be in 2 locations in the rear of the auditorium, in the main lobby, and in the main floor restrooms.
We will not have a Nursery team of volunteer workers to care for children during the service however the Nursery facility including supplies will be available to parents for feeding and/or changing diapers.
The carpets have been professionally cleaned and sanitized including the building on Thursday-Friday, May 21-22. After each service, beginning May 31, restrooms including the building where occupied will be sanitized with an alcohol-base cleaner.
Signage has been hung in the foyer and in the rear of the auditorium to remind everyone to wear a face mask, keep a 6 foot social distance, and to wash and or use hand sanitizer upon entering and leaving the building. We will occupy the even rows of pews beginning with row 2 from the front to ensure the 6 foot social distance between families.
