Update from the Gathering Team

The Gathering Team has made the following recommendations which have been accepted by the Executive Committee (based on current best practices from provincial and regional public health agencies):

  • While all our community members are encouraged to stay up to date with vaccinations, proof of vaccination will no longer be required to attend worship.
  • Masking is strongly recommended, especially for those attending worship and those whose immune systems may be compromised, but is no longer mandatory in our building.  Individual committees or groups meeting at Applewood may make their own decisions about masking among their members/participants.
  • Hand sanitizer and anti-bacterial wipes should remain readily available and used frequently.
  • All participants and visitors to Applewood should be encouraged to self screen before attending any event or worship, and stay home if feeling unwell (even if you have a volunteer role). Rapid tests will continue to be available through the office as supplies last.

The Gathering Team is not scheduling any future meetings, but has agreed to stay in place until the end of the year with the hope that they will no longer be needed after that time.
