Returning to Medium-risk Level Covid Protocols

As the COVID-19 infection rate in Hennepin County increases, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has moved the county from a low- to medium-risk level. As a result, Westminster’s Covid protocols will also move from a low- to medium-risk level, effective Monday, July 18.

This spring, the Responsible Building Use Task Force revised Westminster’s Covid response plan and Session approved the revised plan. The new plan includes a risk assessment process tied to the CDC’s risk levels. In addition, the revised plan has a three-column grid of Covid prevention measures based on risk level—low, medium, high.

At the medium-risk level, the following protocol changes will take effect:

  • Masks will be required inside the building at all times.
  • Capacity limits will be 600 allowed in the sanctuary and 50% capacity in all other rooms.
  • Social distancing is required.
  • Communion will be pre-packaged, individual servings.
  • No self-serve food service and all tableware will be disposable/compostable; 50% table capacity; and masks should be worn when not eating/drinking.
  • Singing continues with masks.
