Before Coming to Church

Are you feeling unwell? Are you currently suffering from any COVID-19 related symptoms such as fever, sore throat, loss of smell and taste? Have you been around someone who is thought to have COVID-19 or is awaiting test results? If you answer yes to any of these questions, It is best to stay home and try again a different week once it is safe. 

Have you traveled out of the country in the last month? If yes, make sure to check whether or not the country you visited is listed as a country that requires quarantine for 10 days upon return. 

When you are at Immanuel:

  • We will block off every other pew on the right (pulpit side) and ask all who attend to self-social distance.   The left side will be open seating.

  • The yellow attendance cards have returned to the pews.  Please fill this out.

  • Elders will greet you upstairs.
