COVID-19 Re-opening Protocol


SUNDAY PRAISE AND WORSHIP SERVICES, including the children’s ministry, will resume July 5, 2020.  We will have two services, 9:00 AM & 11:00 AM. Services will be limited to a maximum occupancy of 44 people per service.  Plan to arrive early to allow time for physical distancing, verbal screening and your temperature taken.

Advance reservation via email to kscott@argietaylorministries.org is encouraged; or you can call the church office and leave a message.  Seating will be on a “first-come-first-served” basis upon receipt of reservation. Reservations should be made by noon on Thursdays. 

The following steps and precautions are mandatory:

  • If you are sick, stay home until you have recovered.
  • Stay Home if you have tested positive for COVID-19 or are showing COVID-19 symptoms.
  • At least 6-feet of physical distancing is mandatory. Physical distancing markers for 6-feet spacing will be inside & outside the sanctuary.
  • All persons must wear a face covering at all times while inside and outside the sanctuary, as well as in the parking lot. 
  • To avoid exposure and spread, no hugging, kissing, or handshaking while inside or outside the sanctuary; as well as in the parking lot. 

CHILDREN’S MINISTRY

The classroom has been modified to ensure for physical distancing. Children will not be allowed to share items. Prepackaged snacks will be provided.  

ENTERING THE PARKING LOT

  • Orange cones will indicate spaces in which you may not park.
  • Everyone must observe and obey all signage while on the parking lot. 
  • Secure you and your child’s face covering upon exiting the vehicle.
  • To avoid exposure and spread, again, no hugging, kissing, touching, or shaking hands is allowed on the property. 

BEFORE ENTERING THE SANCTUARY

  • You will be verbally screened and your temperature taken.
  • Sanitize your hands using the touch free dispenser provided.

TIPS

To reduce the possibility of carrying germs in with you to the sanctuary and possibly transmitting those germs to someone else, consider the following: 

  • Only carry in necessary items.
  • Ladies, consider a cross shoulder, elbow or wrist bag so both hands are free.  
  • If you know you have a tendency to cough or sneeze, please bring your own tissue, mints, or small water container that can be stored inside your purse or pocket.  Remove all of your used items from the sanctuary upon exiting.
  • Everyone should have his or her own hand-sanitizer accessible for personal use.

IN THE SANCTUARY

  • Seats are blocked for physical distancing; therefore, follow the usher’s directions for seating.
  • Family members living in the same household or carpoolers arriving in the same vehicle will be seated together.
  • Do not sing, hum, or make loud expressions. Acts such as these may contribute to transmission of COVID-19 through aerosols.

RESTROOM ETIQUETTE

Touch-Free equipment (toilets, urinals, faucets, sanitizers, soap & towel dispensers) has been installed to reduce risk of contamination.

  • Only one adult is allowed in the restroom at a time unless escorting a child (only one child per adult). 
  • COVID-19 may become aerosolized during the toilet’s flush.  Use a tissue to close the toilet seat and follow posted hands-free instructions at each toilet stall and urinal.  
  • You must wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water immediately.  Use the touch-free dispensers and avoid touching anything in the bathroom.
  • The restroom will be cleaned after each use, therefore anticipate delays.

DISMISSAL 

  • To ensure physical distancing, follow dismissal instructions.
  • Maintain your face covering until you are inside your vehicle.
  • The Tape Factory will be closed. 

EXITING THE PARKING LOT

  • Immediately exit the parking lot after service. 
  • Avoid after service get-togethers with persons not living in the same household, or not carpooling together to service.

TUESDAY NIGHT BIBLE STUDY AND ONLINE WORSHIP

  • Due to our phased approach to reopening, Bible Study will resume at a later date.
  • You may continue to listen to Pastor Keith messages online @ www.argietaylorministries.org
