St. Andrew’s COVID-19 Task Force Report

Mark Rowe - Convenor

The COVID-19 Task Force was formed for the duration of COVID-19 to provide guidance in safely conducting St. Andrew’s re-opening during COVID-19. The St. Andrew’s congregation has been following safe COVID-19 practices and this has allowed our most vulnerable members to safely worship with us. Thank you!

The Province has continued to relax its Covid restrictions, and the Calgary COVID-19 count has dropped but Covid is still with us.

To maintain a Covid safe place for worship, The Covid Task force requests the following:

  • Vaccination is strongly encouraged but not required
  • The use of sanitizers for all worshippers for entry into the church strongly encouraged
  • Masking is strongly encouraged but not required during worship and in the building
  • We are still maintaining social distanced seating in the sanctuary

We will continue to follow AHS directives and The City of Calgary’s guidelines and restrictions as they continue to evolve, so watch for further updates. Thanks for your consideration in these matters, especially the encouragement to mask. It is our desire to create a setting here that is most helpful and encouraging for those who are cautious about returning to gathered activity. In this small way we express Christ’s care.
