Church of The Resurrection’s COVID-19 Safety Protocol

Below is a short list of measures we are taking at this time to keep everyone as safe as possible.



  1. We are taking all the prudent steps we can to protect the safety of all at CTR.
  2. We are following recommendations and guidelines from the State of NC and the Diocese.
  3. Be aware that even though we have permission to gather in person, risk remains.
  4. If you are in a higher risk group regarding Covid-19, consider staying home and not attending.
  5. If you are sick or experiencing symptoms of Coronavirus, stay home!


  1. Social distancing, the recommended minimum of six feet, is to be maintained at all times during in person services at CTR.
  2. Masks are to be worn by all persons during in-person services at CTR.
    • Please bring a clean mask from home with you to the service.
    • Disposable masks will be available at church for those without one.
    • Agreeing to wear a mask is an act of christian love.
  3. The greeters will perform a non-invasive, no-touch temperature scan on all persons entering the building.
  4. Hard surfaces will be disinfected before and after the service.
  5. Hand sanitizing stations will be set up in prominent places in the entry and worship area.

Sunday morning:

  1. To the extent possible, we want to reduce movement and wandering before, during, and after the worship service.

    • To talk with or catch up with someone, please do so outside, under the covered sidewalk at the front of CCA.

    • Members of the same household can sit together.
    • For others, a minimum of six feet in all directions will be maintained in the positioning of chairs.


  1. Due to concerns over tiny airborne particles remaining in the air, singers will be wearing masks.
  2. Until further notice, others in the congregation are asked to hum, not sing!
    • The mouth remains closed while humming, which is much safer.
  3. Communion will be offered using sealed kits.
