Coronavirus: latest updates

Covid guidance

Now that there are no formal restrictions being imposed with regard to Covid measures, the national Church of England has updated its guidance to reflect this:

It will be up to individual parishes to decide their own policies with regard to face-coverings, social distancing and ventilation, to keep their congregations and communities as safe as possible. These can be based on the risk assessment, as downloaded above.

Keep an eye on churchofengland.org/coronavirus for the latest information.
