COVID 19– Update on Face Coverings
 

Face coverings are now mandatory in places of worship and church halls.                          

While there are exemptions, this is a legal requirement.

 
What is a face covering?                                                                                                                    
A face covering is something which safely covers the nose and mouth. You can buy reusable or single-use face coverings. You may also use a scarf, bandana, religious garment or hand-made cloth covering but these must securely fit round the side of the face.
 

Children aged 11 and under, and those with valid exemptions do not need to wear a face covering.

 
Please remember to use the hand sanitiser provided at the entrance to the building, observe physical distancing and to wash your hands regularly.
