Gathering Size Limits
There will be no limit on gathering size while at the Low or Medium risk level according to the COVID ACT NOW website. While at the High risk level, there will be room capacity limits set and six feet of social distance between households will be advised.
Proof of vaccination will not be required; however, attendees will need to sign an affirmation of their vaccination status upon entering the building. All attendees at an indoor gathering shall be fully vaccinated, with the exception of ineligible children. Fully vaccinated means that you are up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines according to the latest CDC Stay Up to Date Guidance.
Face masks will be optional while at the Low risk level. However, masks will still be required while singing. Parents and caregivers are advised to have unvaccinated children over the age of 2 wear masks.
Testing (for ages 5-17 only)
Eligible but unvaccinated children aged 5-17 may attend gatherings provided they have received a negative COVID test result within 48 hours of attending. In the interest of protecting the most vulnerable in the congregation, we ask that those children be masked and socially distanced from older congregants.
Communal singing will be allowed while at the Low risk for those wearing a face mask. At Medium risk, the choir may perform for an audience, but there will be no communal singing. There will be no live indoor singing with an audience while above Medium risk.
Food and drinks will be allowed at indoor gatherings when the Detroit metro region is at Low risk. Wearing face mask except when eating or drinking is still advised.
Lifting of Safety Measures
All safety measures may be lifted when vaccination against COVID-19 has been available to all ages for a period of six weeks, OR when public health authorities have declared an official end to the pandemic.
