Covid-19 Guidelines

Third Church Guidelines During COVID-19

 

Worship & Events at Third

We ask that anyone who has been exposed to, quarantined or tested positive for COVID-19, is not feeling well, or has a temperature higher than 100.4 within the past 24 hours, not attend services. Social distancing guidelines will be in effect in worship venues. To help with social distancing, we ask that you attend the Sunday service you selected when you registered. We will have seating marked off to make adherence to these guidelines as easy as possible. Members of the same household may sit together and all others should sit six feet apart. We will define “household” as those family or non-family members who have been spending significant time together already. This could include, but would not be limited to single friends sitting together or with other families and extended families sitting together. The wearing of masks is optional for staff, volunteers and the congregation.

Adult Discipleship

We ask that any adult who has been exposed to, quarantined or tested positive for COVID-19, is not feeling well, or has a temperature higher than 100.4 within the past 24 hours, not attend Adult Discipleship activities. Masks are encouraged but are not required. Numbers in classes and groups will be capped to help with social distancing.
