Current COVID Phase & Protocols

Visitors are welcome.

Our property is operating under Honor System Protocols in the Green Phase, based on Low – Moderate Community Transmission levels in our area. This means masking is not required at this time, but strongly encouraged when the situation warrants, such as when working with vulnerable and immune compromised persons or for those who are not fully vaccinated.

Testing for COVID before gatherings, especially if you will be engaging in higher risk activities, is another great way to curtail the spread of COVID.  You may contact the church office to pick up an at-home covid test. 

Please stay home if you have been exposed to covid or are displaying symptoms and follow current public health guidance regarding isolation, quarantine, testing and masking.

Our Building Phase system is based on King County Public Health Key Indicators and is primarily designed to assist staff and other users host gatherings in a way that is safe and consistent with the values of our community. For information about all phases, read our 2022 SJU COVID Phases & Protocols.
