Littlestown Chapel and the Coronavirus: An Update from the Elders

by | Nov 22, 2020 | News and Updates

With the recent rapid increase of COVID-19 cases in Adams and York Counties, the Elders of Littlestown Chapel request that everyone attending public, in-person events at the Chapel wear a face mask the entire time while in the building, as suggested by the CDC.

Those who come and are not wearing a mask will be offered one to use. Mask wearing is uncomfortable, but it has been proven to be an effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

The Elders also remind those attending of the importance of maintaining social distance from those not in your family group. The chairs in the auditorium have been placed in groups of 1 to 7 seats. When you take your seat, please chose a chair grouping that matches the number of people who are attending with you.  

If you choose to join us for live worship services, you must register online ahead of time. At this time, seating is limited to 100 attendees. Reservations will be on a first come, first served basis. We ask that you continue to sign up each week for each service you plan to attend.

Online registration of children will be required. If you choose to join us, be sure to register children ahead of time online, as we will limit the number of children and modify classrooms to comply with social distancing guidelines. We may also need to increase the number of volunteers based on the numbers of sign ups we receive. By signing up in advance, you are helping us to be better prepared to serve you on Sundays.

Please take time to review our Health Policy before you arrive.

Has anyone in your household experienced any symptoms, even mild, related to COVID-19 including fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, diarrhea, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell? If so, we recommend not yet attending at this time.

Because we care deeply about the safety of our church family, we are encouraging those with concerns and pre-existing health conditions to continue to watch the live stream at home.

It’s been a joy to worship together in person, and we will continue to do so as long as we are able to do it safely.
