Good news, the State of CT has issued new guidance for worship services, effective on October 8th. With a new limit of 50%, that means we should be able to worship with up to 125 in the upper auditorium.
On October 8, 2020, Governor Lamont issued Executive Order 9F which provides:
- Amendments to Size Restrictions on Certain Gatherings. Effective on October 8, 2020, Executive Order No. 7TT, Section 2 is amended to provide that religious, spiritual, or worship gatherings, if held indoors, are limited to no more than 50 percent of the building’s capacity or a maximum of 200 people, whichever is lower, and such services, if held outdoors, are limited to the number of people that can be accommodated safely by the venue or location provided that all persons present wear masks, unless speaking from designated safe locations, and that a distance of 6 feet is maintained between all persons or groups not from the same household.
- Extension of Drive-In Worship Services and Graduations. The provisions of Executive Order No. 7XX, Sections 1 and 2, regarding drive-in religious and graduation ceremonies, shall remain in effect.”
