Dear Creator Members,
We have a small Covid Response team working on the details for preparing to “open up the church”. The recommendation of this group is to continue virtual Worship and keep the Church building closed unless prior approval by Council until Phase 3.
While Pierce Co has now moved to Phase 2 we feel that the mitigations needed to reduce the risk are too great for the number that would be able to attend.
Religious and faith-based organizations are permitted to, provided all requirements in this document are met:
Phase 1 Hold outdoor services on the organization’s property (or immediately adjacent property if explicitly permitted by the local jurisdiction) with up to 100 individuals, excluding organization staff.
Phase 2 Hold indoor services at a place of worship with up to 25% capacity or 50 individuals, whichever is less, (excluding organization staff) and
Hold or provide in-home services or counseling inside a person’s residence with up to 5 total individuals (excluding organization staff).
