As you are likely aware, a growing body of evidence indicates that wearing face masks is effective in helping to curb the transmission of COVID-19. For that reason, we are strongly encouraging parishioners to wear a face mask to worship services. Disposable masks will be available for those people who arrive without one of their own.
The BC Centre for Disease Control emphasizes that masks must be used in combination with hand hygiene and physical distancing of at least two metres. But they do help! So please have a look at this video below, which talks more about the role of masks and how to take them on and off safely.
