St John's Covid-19 Response

St John’s In-Person Worship - Sunday Holy Eucharist

New Mask Policy Effective April 1, 2022

Effective April 1, 2022, masks will no longer be required at St. John’s.  Vaccinated and unvaccinated members of the congregation will not be segregated during our worship services. 

Bruce Pitts, Junior Warden, has identified a section of the church that has an ‘air curtain’ - specifically, the section of shorter pews on the left side of the church as you are facing the altar.  The airflow in that area encircles the pews and then is vented up.  The air from other areas of the church does not cross circulate here.  For those of you who are more comfortable sitting with other masked people, this is the section in the church where you can worship alongside those who feel the same way.  Our goal is for every person to feel comfortable and safe!  

For the past two years, we have all experienced the anxiety and uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 virus.  While we hope that the occurrence of virus cases continues to wane, we know all too well that any change in circumstances could trigger another mask mandate.  We will rely on our health experts at the state and national levels to guide us in our decision making to safeguard all of you.

A special note - Entrance to the choir loft will be restricted to people wearing masks.
