K of K COVID Protocols

COVID PROTOCOLS FOR INDOOR WORSHIP (revised 2/21/2022 based on latest mandates)

These protocols are subject to change at any time based on information received from Bishop Egensteiner, the Orange County Health Department, the Governor of NY, or the CDC.

Temperatures are no longer taken; no COVID exposure or vaccination questions are asked. 

Wearing masks inside the church is now optional.

Anyone who chooses to wear a mask may do so without judgment.

Hand sanitizer and masks are available from the Greeter.

Write or highlight your name (recorded for contract tracing) at the lectern in the entryway. 

Take a bulletin and communion elements (wafer, wafer/grape juice or wafer/wine).

A plate is available for offerings. 

Pews are set up for social distancing. Families may sit together.  

The service begins when the organist starts the prelude; please cease conversing and listen silently.

The lector speaks liturgical responses; the cantor sings hymns. Worshippers may speak or sing responses softly, with masks strongly recommended while speaking or singing.

When sharing the peace, offer a smile or a hand signal, but do not touch.

You may exit through the same door you entered; no more one-way flow.

Please refrain from talking during the postlude so it is not heard on the live stream. Please have your post- worship discussions outside the Sanctuary.

Following worship, maintain social distancing while departing until you are outside.

Take a bulletin and communion elements (grape juice or wine).

A receptacle is available for offerings. 

Bring your own chair and place it 12 ft. away from others; families may sit together.  

The congregation may speak and sing hymns and liturgical responses.
