At the start of this year, as Leicester was placed into Tier 4 and then the country was very quickly put into a new national lockdown, we made the difficult decision to close our doors again. Now as infections continue to fall and the stay at home order ends, we are returning to the building.
We have taken a number of measures in order to keep us all as safe as possible, including providing hand sanitiser at the entrance and rearranging the layout of the chairs. To help us, there are a number of things we ask you to remember.
Stay home if you have Covid symptoms or have been told to isolate
Please follow the rules about testing and self isolating when ill or after contact with a positive case.
Keep 2m away from people you don't live with at all times
When it comes to taking a seat, keep to one person or household per block, or two people attending on their own can sit at either end of a block of four.
Wear a face mask unless you are exempt
Exemptions include children under 11, those with medical exemptions, and those for whom masks cause severe anxiety. Please remember exemptions aren't always obvious and do not judge others.
Keep to current guidelines on social interaction
Groups of up to thirty may gather outside and groups of six/two households may
Practice good hygiene
Sanitise your hands on arrival, avoid touching your face, and pay particular attention to hygiene notices if you must use the toilet.
For those continuing to worship from home, prerecorded services will still be shared online on Sunday mornings.
