Covid Guidelines

Monday, May 24, 2021
The CDC has issued new Covid Guidelines which Governor Justice has confirmed that the State of WV will follow also.  
 
Anyone who has been fully vaccinated is no longer required to wear a mask effective immediately.
 
The Indoor Face Covering Requirement is still in effect for all West Virginians who are not yet fully vaccinated, and will remain in effect for those individuals until June 20, 2021.   We at Northgate will also follow these new guidelines.  As more people are being vaccinated and as a result cases are decreasing nationwide, we will begin to reopen our church to more activities.

The Governor has mandated that people must wear masks at all indoor gatherings this past weekend.  The reason sighted for this mandate is to help slow down the dramatically increasing spread of the coronavirus.
 
Therefore, beginning this Sunday, November 21, 2020, we will need to comply with the rule issuance by wearing a mask the entire time we are in the church.  I know the masks are not comfortable, but at least we are still able to continue our worshiping together.
 
Mon, July 6, 2020
The Governor has mandated the wearing of masks indoors effective  Midnight, July 6.  The way we will address this new mandate as we gather for worship is as follows:
Entering into the building, we asks you to wear a mask until you get to your seat.
 
Once you are seated, and are safely distanced from others, if you so choose, you can take off the mask for the service.
 
Once the service concludes, before you leave your seat, we would ask you to put your mask back on until you exit the building.
 
We will continue to project the songs onto the screen to use as a time of reflection.
 
Masks and hand sanitizer will be available in the foyer for your convenience.
 
As before, Cody will wipe down all areas after everyone has left so as to sanitize and make safe the area for our next gathering.
 
 
 Monday, May 18, 2020
Upon entering the parking lot, please park in every other space.  There should be an empty space between cars.
 
When you come into the church, please go directly to the sanctuary and find a seat.  If you are setting on the same row as another family, please keep six feet apart.  Every other row will be blocked off, so please don't sit in those rows.
 
Everyone coming to worship must wear a mask until you leave the building.  If you have a mask, please bring it.  If you don't, the church will provide them for you.
 
We will not be providing orders of worship.  There will be an offering plate placed at the entrance to the sanctuary for you to deposit your tithes and offerings.
 
We will not be engaging in congregational singing.  What we will do, however, is projecting the songs on the screen so we can follow along and reflect on the words while the musicians play. Awkward, I know, but the spray from singing is one way the virus is spread.
 
We must not hug or shake hands before, during or after the service.  I know this will be hard for all of us, but remember it won't always be this way.
 
We will dismiss the service by individual rows, beginning by the back first and working our way toward the front of the sanctuary.  Each row must exit the building before the next row recesses.
 
We must not gather in the foyer before or after the service.  If you would like to talk with others, please do so out on the parking lot where there is fresh air and plenty of room to distance from one another.
 
There will be no Sunday School, Children's Church or nursery provided at this time.  Wednesday night Bible Study will remain suspended at this time as well.
 
For a time, our worship service will be abbreviated due to the fact that we are in an enclosed area.
