The Tasmanian Government has announced places of worship can reopen for small religious gatherings and ceremonies of up to 10 people from 18 May.
However, before opening your doors to worship services and other activities, it is vital to consider not only all of the necessary physical requirements but, more importantly, the ministry and mission implications. There are a number of additional factors which every church council should also consider.
A checklist to assist you in deciding if you are able to be COVID-19 compliant is now available. It should be completed by the church council before making any plans to reopen your doors.
