GPC’S COVID GUIDELINES
The Session met on Thursday, September 17, and agreed to leave in place our current guidelines regarding our communal life at this stage of the pandemic (with a minor exception regarding choir/singers). For the next four weeks, the Session strongly recommends that everyone wear a mask while indoors. We believe this is a demonstration of self-sacrificial love for those who cannot be vaccinated for reasons of age (children under 12) or health. Everyone working with children under twelve (i.e. Sunday School teachers, nursery workers, etc.) shall wear a mask. We will continue to rely on expert medical advice as we discuss and discern what is best for our congregation, and we encourage everyone to do the same for themselves and their families. Groups where children are not involved may self-regulate their meeting space and procedures, subject to the above statements. The Director of Music has been given permission to explore how more singers may take part in the choir loft, provided they sing while wearing masks, and a soloist may remove his or her mask to sing if he or she is appropriately spaced from the congregation and other singers.
