The Grace EPC church house is open throughout the week and for Sunday worship services. The following COVID-19 protection policy is used to guide staff, congregation, and visitors entering and using the church house.
- Beginning March 28, 2021, masks may be removed when a person is seated or standing during our second worship service, or is seated during a church activity. There is no change to the policy (below) for our first worship service.
- All individuals are required to wear a mask upon entering the Grace EPC church house and must remain masked while inside, except when a person is seated or standing during our second worship service, or is seated during a church activity. Everyone is strongly encouraged to socially distance in their gatherings, especially before and after church activities and worship services.
- Grace EPC staff may remove their masks while alone in their offices but should replace their mask when another person enters the office, or when that staff member leaves the office.
- Children five years of age and younger and those with a medical condition, mental health condition, or disability that prevents wearing a face covering are excepted from this policy. Additionally, it is permissible to temporarily lower or remove a face covering anytime one is communicating in a situation where the ability to see the mouth is essential—e.g., with a person who is deaf or hard of hearing.
