Our stream will still be available on our NOW page for a little while but you should plan on making the transition to YouTube or Twitch as soon as possible.
KNOX HEALTH & SAFETY COVID UPDATE

The Knox COVID Health & Safety Team meets biweekly to review the COVID Health & Safety policy. Because of the Team’s continued concern about the burden COVID-19 is placing on our health care system, restrictions at Knox will be eased gradually and with caution as we resume in-person worship and programming. While congregational singing is not permitted at present, the Team will revisit this policy in the near future, and hopes that conditions will permit congregational singing shortly.

Update:

  • Limited capacity in-person worship and indoor programming at Knox will resume on February 27, 2022 with Proof of Vaccination required.
  • Effective March 1, 2022, Proof of Vaccination will not be required (aligning with Ontario Government intention of lifting of this restriction).
  • Seating reservation requirements will continue.
  • The wearing of mask at all times while on church property is required. Knox recommends and encourages the use of well-fitting masks (such as a KN95 or a model with comparable protection). If you have difficulty finding a supplier, contact the office for assistance.
  • Social distancing will be required at all times.
  • No food is permitted at this time, because of the masking requirement.
  • Congregational singing not permitted at this time.
  • Passive screening is employed. Do not attend if you are unwell or have travelled outside the country in the past two weeks. Read the online screening tool.
