ENDURING COVID-19

Covid Protocols for Coon Valley Lutheran Church

Starting on Sept. 26, 2021

 

  1.  The metric we will use for protocols is HealthWeather. As of right now, Vernon County is in the red (high) category. 

   

  1. Masking in our building is required as of Sunday Sept. 26, 2021. If the HealthWeather metric goes back to the yellow category instead of the red (high) category, we will make an announcement on the Sunday that the following Sunday we will roll back these protocols if we remain in yellow. 

 

  1. We will continue to sing our last hymn while masked.

 

  1.  A picture will be taken during the service to keep a record of where people are sitting for contract tracing purposes only. 

 

  1. At this time, we will not rope off every other pew, but rather we just ask that people spread out as much as possible when sitting in the pews.

 

  1. Communion will be handed out in the Narthex like before, instead of walking around for Communion. 

 

  1.  Serving food of any kind, including funeral luncheons – The servers will wear masks, gloves and serve the food.  No buffet lines.   It has also been decided to move the Sunday School students into the fellowship hall where there is more space and ventilation and move Sunday morning coffee into the hall by the Sunday School rooms.
