 Covid 19 restrictions

BASIC INFORMATION

Please do not come into church if you have any of the Covid 19 symptoms.

Face coverings MUST be worn unless you have an exemption.

Please use sanitiser when entering the church.

For "test and trace" purposes, people's names and contact numbers may be requested.

Please be aware that St Dunstan's is a small church and therefore In order to observe social distancing, only every other row is available with two seats in that row. Only members of one family or support bubble can fill an entire row.

Once the safe maximum number is reached, the church will be declared full and no more people will be admitted.

Holy Communion will be brought to people in their places.

Sanitiser should be used on leaving. Please leave immediately after Mass has ended.


CLINICALLY VULNERABLE PEOPLE

Certain groups of people may be at increased risk of severe disease from COVID-19. Government advice is that while shielding is no longer necessary, it is important for clinically extremely vulnerable individuals to continue to keep their number of social interactions low and to reduce the amount of time spent in settings where maintaining social distancing might be difficult. 


PERMITTED NUMBERS IN CHURCH

The size of the church means that we can only seat 14 individuals - 2 people in a row of 4 seats in every other row. This means that the maximum number can go up but only when a family or a bubble can fill up a row of 4. Although the Government has increased numbers, it is still not safe to do so because of the limited capacity of the church.

For baptisms, weddings and funerals the above restrictions have to remain in place for the time being.

It is hoped that permitted numbers will be able to increase significantly in June, but this will depend on the four areas of the government's road plan are met.
