COVID update

2 December 2021


“The emergence of the omicron variant of the virus may have an impact on COVID infection rates and as a precautionary measure the government have reintroduced some rules such as the compulsory wearing of face coverings on public transport and in shops. However, for places of worship it is still up to individual churches to decide the precautions they wish to take based on their own risk assessment to protect others and themselves. At All Hallows’ we will not make the wearing of masks compulsory at this stage but strongly suggest that all worshippers and visitors to the Church wear a mask. We will leave it to an individual’s discretion as to wearing a mask during hymn singing - the Choir will not be wearing masks when they sing. The South Aisle pews will continue to be set up for those who wish to be socially distanced from others in the congregation.”
