November 28, 2020:  Message from Archpriest Stefan Pavlenko, Rector

 

On Saturday, November 28, San Mateo County issued an Emergency Alert that effective Sunday, November 29, San Mateo County will be back in (COVID-19) Purple Tier, which prohibits indoor attendance at services in Houses of Worship.

 

This places our parish back into the situation under which we operated in August through the middle of November.  Accordingly, we will revert our invitation process to that which we used in the August-november period when Congregation members remained outdoors, designed to ensure health safety and compliance with County guidelines.

 

As before, while attendance by Congregation members is outdoors, members of the same household will not need to maintain 6-foot distancing between each other, but 6-foot distancing is required between different households. 

 

Face covering must be worn by Congregation members at all times when on church property, (except when receiving Holy Communion). While in line to receive Holy Communion, face covering and 6-foot distancing must be maintained.

 

As before, all those who attend any service must abide by our parish Training Plan, click here, including self-assessment - taking your temperature (at home) and declaring upon your arrival at the church that you have none of the symptoms listed in the Training.

 

Thus far, thank God, we have not had a single COVID-19 infection among our Congregation.  Both for health and compliance reasons, your continued cooperation – washing hands often, sanitizing, maintaining social distancing and wearing face covering – remains essential to continuation of our services.  God bless you and your loved ones.
