Coronavirus Information and indoor Worship Service Guidelines

CDC Information on the coronavirus

Maryland Department of Health


Mt. Airy PCA Indoor Worship Guidelines 

Masks and social distancing will no longer be required for those who have been fully vaccinated. Fully vaccinated means two weeks have passed since you received a second dose in the two-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or since you received a single-dose vaccine, such as the Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.  

Masks are not required but strongly recommended for attendees who have not been vaccinated. We will continue to be attentive to the recommendations released by our local, state and federal agencies. As those agencies issue new statements, we will continue to reevaluate and update our guidelines as appropriate.  

We fully support anyone who still desires to wear a mask. Please do not assume that if you see someone wearing a mask it means that they have not been vaccinated. There are many legitimate reasons why some may be fully vaccinated and yet are still wearing masks. 

We have the chairs in the sanctuary set up in singles, pairs, and family groups in three-foot spaces. As you enter the sanctuary, please find a chair or group of chairs that applies to your situation. 

In place of passing offering plates, there will be boxes on stands by the sanctuary doors available for you to place an offering before or after the service is over. 

 Please stay at home for any church activity in our building if:

  • You have coronavirus, or in the past two weeks you or someone in your household has been sick with the following symptoms: Fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, body aches, headache, sore throat, runny nose or nasal congestion, nausea and/or vomiting, diarrhea, new loss of sense of taste or smell; or
  • In the past two weeks you have been exposed to Coronavirus, or you or someone in your household has been tested for Coronavirus (and you are still awaiting the test results).

While at the service Sunday morning, if you begin to feel ill with any coronavirus symptom, please contact a church officer as soon as possible, for your sake and for the sake of others.
