Covid-19 Update – January 3, 2022
The Ontario Government has announced that effective January 5th, 2022 at 12:01 a.m.:
all indoor religious services, weddings, and funerals will be limited to 50% capacity (with proof of vaccination if your community of faith had decided to require this);
all outdoor religious services, weddings, and funerals will be limited to the number of people that can maintain 2 metres/6 feet of physical distance in that space.
This is a time-limited change that will take effect for 21 days and will be reassessed on January 26th, 2022 (depending on the Covid numbers in the province and the hospital numbers).
We appreciate that this news will be disappointing for congregations that have been gathering at capacity with proof of vaccination, but as a church we remain committed to caring for our neighbours. We do this, in part, by making the safety and well-being of everyone in the community a priority.
Please continue to check your local health unit for the most up-to-date specific information for your area.
