TRAFFIC LIGHT SYSTEM CHANGES AND THE LIFTING OF THE MANDATES
____
March 24th, 2022

The government has announced yesterday that from tomorrow, March 25th at 11:59pm, the Traffic Light System is undergoing some changes. 

Under the Red setting, indoor gathering limits where vaccine passes are used will be raised from 100 to 200. In settings where vaccine passes are not being used, the gathering limits remain unchanged at 25 attendees.

However, more changes will be coming 2 weeks later. From Monday, April 4th at 11:59pm, we will no longer be required to check vaccine passes and the 200 person gathering limits will then apply to all gatherings.

This is a major change for our country and for our church family!

For this reason, we are excited to announce the following changes:

 

Beginning Sunday, March 27th:
 

  • We will no longer need to use tickets for our 11am and 6pm services.

  • There will be no need to sign in, though you will still need to present your vaccine pass.

  • We will still offer tickets for our 9am Service (which still has a gathering limit of 25) for 2 more Sundays until the vaccine pass requirements are lifted.

Beginning Sunday, April 10th: 

 

  • We will be reuniting our two morning services together as a single service and we will no longer be requiring vaccine passes to attend any of our services.

  • We are announcing the new start time of this single morning service on Sunday, April 3rd.

While we recognise that the challenges of Covid-19 is now here to stay with us, we are hopeful that the easing of these restrictions is perhaps a sign of a returning to something close to the normal that we have not seen since the end of 2019. 

We will continue to be diligent about encouraging mask wearing and doing what we can to lower the risk of transmission in our community as we transition into this new phase, balancing safety with the continuity of the life of our community.

We appreciate your continued patience as we move forward, and we are so excited to be all together again soon!

Cheerfully,

The South City C3 Team
