COVID-19 Precautions

With the guidance of the St. Anna Medical Advisory Ministry the following COVID-19 precautions are in
place to allow us to continue to worship together as safely as possible. Our guidelines for doing this rely
on both the religious understandings and deep medical knowledge of our Ministry members.

We thank you for your help in keeping yourself and others safe and healthy. 

Current Precautions

  • Due to the emergence of the very contagious Omicron variant, all individuals (2 years and older) are now asked to wear a respirator or mask when inside the Church and other areas of the building. The only exception is during Fellowship Hour when eating or drinking.
  • Continue to practice good hand hygiene (e.g. by using hand sanitizer) and maintain distance precautions.
  • Please stay home if you are sick, have any symptoms of COVID-19, or have had a close unprotected exposure to someone with COVID-19.

Worship

  • Holy Communion and Antidoron will be administered as part of Liturgy following COVID-19 precautions.
  • All services will be livestreamed on YouTube.
  • All services are open to everyone for in-person worship. Observe the “6-foot rule” by allowing 4 chairs between household or family groups. An overflow area will be set up in the Fellowship area.

Other Meetings and Activities

  • Follow the precautions for mask wearing, distancing, and hand hygiene.
  • Fellowship Hour coffee and light snack service will resume using our previously established COVID-19 precautions.
  • The building will be opened for small group functions (e.g. bible study, Parish Council meetings, meetings of ministry leadership teams, operation of food distribution services, preparation of palms for Palm Sunday).
  • The leader of the group will be asked to disinfect the premises following the meeting (materials will be provided).
