Regathering and Covid-19

On February 21, 2021 Westwood Christian Church will regather for worship for the first time since March of 2020! In order to do so safely, we want you to be aware of a few things:

Masking: Personal face masks must be worn from the time you exit your car until you return to your car, with the exception of when we take communion.

Screening: In order to enter the building you must pass a health screening. Your temperature will be taken, and you will be asked about symptoms and exposure to Covid19. If you have symptoms or have been exposed to Covid19, you will be asked to return home and worship online.

Sunday School and Children’s Church: Other than the worship service, there will be no additional programming at this time. This includes Sunday school, children’s church, and the nursery.

Seating: In order to physically distance households, half of the sanctuary chairs will be removed and the remaining chairs will be in rows 6 feet apart. You will be seated by an usher who will ensure that you are seated 6 feet or more from other households.

Food and Drink: No outside food or drink are allowed in the building. We will not serve coffee, tea, or hot water in the church and our water fountain will be turned off.

Outbreak or Exposure: If Westwood is notified that someone who attended our church within the last 2 weeks has tested positive for Covid19, we will:

  • Ensure the building has been properly sanitized
  • Communicate with the staff and volunteers who were in attendance
  • Cancel in-person services for 1-2 weeks.

Sanitation: Westwood has a sanitation plan that will be followed every week. This includes sanitizing the worship space after service on Sunday and a cleaning on Saturday.
