Good News: Vaccination passports not mandatory

The vaccination passports are not required for our churches. The statement released yesterday by the Ministry of Health specifies in full that the vaccination passport is not required for places of worship, for wedding ceremonies or funerals. Implicitly, this means that the activities of places of worship are not deemed “non-essential” by the government, as is the case with gyms, restaurants and the like. It’s already something …
The sanitary rules affecting places of worship remain the same:

Hand hygiene at the entrance, wearing a mask and two meters distance when traveling. Once seated, distance of one meter if you are not singing, two meters and wearing a mask if you sing. It is recommended to avoid travel during ceremonies.

CAPACITY – 250 people inside, 500 people outside (although with spacing our church only holds approximately 120 people).

WEDDINGS AND FUNERALS – Keeping of a mandatory register

CHORALS – Choirs allowed in places of worship. Members should respect a distance of 2 meters between themselves and if they sing in front of an audience, the distance should be greater than 2 meters.

SONG OF THE ASSEMBLY – Distance of ONE meter between people of different addresses when they remain in their place.
Distance of TWO meters when people of different addresses sing or talk. It is therefore possible for people to sing, but they must wear the mask when singing and stay 2m from each other.
