COVID-19 Accommodations to Ensure the Safety of Our Worshipers
- Our sanctuary has a high ceiling with 72 thousand cubic feet of air in the room.
- The ventilation system for heating and AC moves air from the floor to the ceiling. Commercial thermostats run the air continuously during the day.
- Two high volume exhaust fans near the ceiling run during our worship services.
- Our central hallway has flow through ventilation with open windows on both sides.
- UV sterilizers have been installed within the ventilation system.
Chairs are set up to provide physical distancing between family groups.
During the summer months, we are doing more outside.
- Sunday morning worship is held outside once a month on the 1st Sundays of June, July, and August on our patio and grass. A large tent is set up to provide shade in addition to the tree shade.
- Coffee is served outside – on our patio – during our fellowship time whenever weather allows.
- We are offering once a month outdoor Sunday evening Sing and Faith-Story times in the shade.
Vaccination coverage of attendees is estimated to be at least as good as that of Olmsted County (~75%) for adults and youth ages 16 and up.
Morning worship services are livestreamed on the Salem Road Covenant YouTube Channel.
