When you plan to come to St. Mark’s in-person—whether for a service, Sermon Seminar, to drop off your children for Sunday School, or to attend a concert or performance—we ask that you follow our Covid policy as outlined on this page.

Before leaving home, please review the Covid-19 safety statements on this page and confirm that you agree to all of them. (If you are symptomatic, please stay home and take good care of yourself, letting us know if you need help.) See the summary chart at the bottom of this page for a quick reference of how our Covid policy is applied.

We want to thank everyone, your devotion to the health and safety of the parish has been a blessing to us all.

Covid-19 Safety 

Before you come to church, we ask that you agree to all of the following:

  • I agree I will only attend worship if I am healthy and I am non-symptomatic. (symptoms: fever ≥ 100.4◦F; sore throat; cough; shortness of breath; chills; vomiting, diarrhea, or nausea; pink eye; joint or muscle aches; loss of taste or smell)
  • I agree to respect any requests for distance and masking to ensure the safety and comfort level of others.
  • I acknowledge that the coronavirus is highly contagious and there is a risk of infection that is beyond the control of the church in spite of precautions that are being taken. I will make my own decision as to my safety in entering the church building and for the safety of children and others in my care.
  • If you believe that you have or have been exposed to COVID, we ask that you adhere to CDC guidance
