Provincial Health Directives related to Faith Communities– May, 2021
As of May 14, Provincial Health Directives continue to allow for faith communities to meet in worship with a limit of 30 people (not including the worship leaders) while rigorously following Health Directives. Non-ceremonial guidelines for worship spaces also remain unchanged.
Synod supports the Provincial Health Directives for Places of Worship as a non-negotiable basic standard for our faith communities. The provincial government and health authority also released on May 4, a Provincial 3-Step Roadmap to Reopening based on vaccination levels across the province. The plan for re-opening will have direct impact on faith communities’ pandemic response over the summer.
