COVID Committee Update – June 2021
Based on the state, as well as Town of Dedham guidelines, the following changes have been made to St. John’s Safety COVID protocol:
- Masks are no longer required for fully vaccinated individuals. Anyone who is more comfortable wearing a mask may of course continue to do so.
- Non-vaccinated individuals are advised to continue wearing face masks and to continue to practice social distancing (of at least 6 feet) within the church.
- If you, or a family member, require an area in the church for social distance, please email the church office and a pew(s) on the courtyard side near the open doors will be blocked off for you.
- Capacity in the church will increase to 100%. Sign-ups are no longer required.
We will not yet resume the kiss of peace, passing baskets, or kissing icons or crosses. Simply bow in reverence.
Altar Servers will continue to hand out holy bread with clean, gloved hands. Please do not put your hands into the bread basket.
