The Queensland Government announced the end of the snap three-day lockdown in Greater Brisbane today, and made it clear that Easter Church services could go ahead with some restrictions in place.
These restrictions are:
- Operating under our existing Covid Safety plans including social distancing, hand sanitising, check-ins, contactless communion, and wiping down of surfaces after use.
- Wearing masks when indoors and not participating up front, or eating and drinking, for anyone over 12 years old.
- 1 person per 2sqm (though households can sit together), and a reduced capacity of the building based on that amount of social distancing.
- Staying home if you’re sick.
- Being seated for any food and drink service
So, we will operate under these restrictions. We will also be phasing out pen and paper check ins over the next few Sundays to use the Government Check In Queensland app, so please consider installing this app from Google Play Store
or the Apple App Store
. if you haven’t already, to help the check in process go smoothly.
We recognise that mask wearing for a church service is uncomfortable, and the requirement to do so for two services in a three-day period will be challenging, and so we invite anyone who would prefer to stay home and join us over Zoom to do so.
Here are the Zoom links.
Under the Covid safety requirements we can continue to serve coffee (and hot cross buns) in a Covid-safe way (according to our safety plan) — and under the current restrictions this will require contactless service to people who are seated.
