New mandatory order (and state of emergency) comes into effect at midnight September 24
For worship services, faith venues have the option to either:
- Require all participants to show full proof of vaccination and wear a mask at all times (physical distancing is not required, no capacity limits, singing while masked is permitted).
- Forego full proof of vaccination, but ensure:
- everyone masked at all times,
- operate at 50% or less capacity,
- maintain two metres of physical distancing between different households,
- no congregational singing,
- record names of all attendees and contact information by row or have a consistent assigned seating plan for contact tracing; and;
- prevent anyone displaying COVID-19 symptoms or who has been instructed to self-isolate from entering.
Regardless of which option your place of worship selects, everyone will need to show proof of full vaccination whenever they access certain events, which includes weddings, funerals, parties, conferences and workshops.
"It will be important moving forward that we are supportive of each other’s
personal protective habits and risk tolerances."
