Please observe the following policies that have been developed to minimize health risks while at church

Before Attending Service:

  • If fever or flu-like symptoms exist, or if you don’t feel well, please stay home and seek medical attention. We will also scan each person’s temperature as they enter the sanctuary building.

  • Those attending should not exhibit any COVID-19 symptoms or have been in contact with anyone confirmed with COVID-19 in the past 14 days. Symptoms include 1.) Cough, or, 2.) Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing. They also include two or more of the following: 1.) fever, 2.) chills, 3.) shaking with chills, 4.) muscle pain, 5.) head-ache, 6.) sore throat, or, 7.) recent loss of taste or smell. See CDC guidelines at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus.

  • If underlying medical conditions exist, seek medical attention prior to attending service. The following conditions may put a person at higher risk to contract COVID-19 or other virus: age over 65, individuals with conditions such as but not limited to asthma, HIV, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease and/or cancer.

  • Refrain from eating or drinking before service (unless medically necessary) to minimize use of the restrooms.

  • Practice good hygiene. Wash hands frequently for a minimum of 20 seconds with hot water and soap. See CDC guidelines at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus.

During Service:

  • Los Angeles County guidelines ask that church congregants wear face-coverings while at indoor gatherings. 

  • Children and youth are welcome to attend along with their families. Play areas are open and children can play with kids from other families while at church. Youth will meet for a separate time of worship and study.

  • Small groups will meet as planned. That includes all adult, youth, and children’s classes or ministries. 

  • Bathrooms and hard surfaces such as tables, doors, knobs, switches, handrails, and plates are sanitized and disinfected before and after each service. Hand sanitizer is available on the tables at the rear of the sanctuary and at the Sanctuary entrance. In addition to these precautions, please try to avoid unnecessarily touching surfaces.

  • We will not pass offering plates to collect your tithes and offerings during the service. Rather, please place your offerings in the designated plates on the tables at the rear of the Sanctuary or give by using US mail or the online giving option on our website. 

  • Air conditioning will be used to circulate the air during the service. Doors will be open allowing fresh air to come in. You may also consider bringing a personal handheld fan.

  • On Communion Sundays, we will provide individually wrapped communion elements on the tables at the rear of the Sanctuary. Please obtain your elements before sitting down so that we can share together at the appropriate time.

After Service:

  • Please observe social distancing while socializing after service. 

  • If you experience symptoms of COVID-19 after attending a service, please go to your medical provider immediately.  

  • If you are in a vulnerable category for Covid-19, please consider staying home and participating with us at a distance via You Tube, Facebook, or our church website at www.trinitydowney.com. 

  • The nature of this pandemic makes this situation fluid. Please stay updated with changes or protocols through the news broadcasts or by visiting the Church Website.

Thank you for honoring these policies while at church.
