COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan

  1. We will hold two identical and slightly simplified services each Sunday morning at 8:30 AM and 11:00 AM.  11:00 AM will be live streamed on our website
  2. We encourage all of those in high-risk groups (elderly, immune-compromised, diabetic, etc.) to evaluate their situation and consider staying home for live stream worship if the risk is too great. 
  3. We ask that if you (or anyone in your family) are sick, feverish or not feeling well please stay home and worship with the live stream at 11:00 AM.
  4. We will maintain 50% or less capacity of our sanctuary.  According to the Mt. Lebanon fire code, 482 people is our maximum capacity, so we will maintain 241 people or less in our sanctuary.
  5. Face masks are strongly recommended but not required.  Please wear a face mask unless you are in your pew for worship.  If you do not have a face mask, disposable masks will be available at the door.
  6. We encourage those who attend to be prepared to maintain a six-foot social distance from others when entering the building, sitting in the pews or attending Christian education classes.
  7. We encourage all those who enter and leave the church to wash or sanitize their hands. 
  8. Interior doors will be propped open whenever possible. 
  9. We will designate every other row of pews as “closed” with signs.
  10. There will be red offering boxes at the entrances to the sanctuary for tithes and offerings.
  11. Bottles of hand sanitizer will be in each pew.
  12. We will provide disinfecting wipes in the restrooms for individuals to use to wipe sink handles and door handles as they exit.
  13. We will keep a supply of sanitization products in our copy room on the A-Level and kitchen in the B-Level; we ask that groups please wipe down their space after meeting. 
  14. If potential exposure to COVID-19 were to occur at Beverly Heights, the congregation will be notified.
