A member of Anchor Church staff will be designated as a health coordinator and will help enforce the guidelines and best practices set forth by the CDC and the State of Virginia.
Anchor Church will limit the amount of attendees by requiring pre-registration.
Our Connections Team will greet attendees as they enter a designated set of doors and then use a separate set of doors to usher attendees out after the service. When possible, exterior and interior doors will be left open to limit touching of door handles. Attendees will be asked to leave the building immediately after the service and areas of the lobby will be blocked off with stanchions to prevent groups of people from gathering inside the building.
Hand sanitizer stations and pumps will be placed throughout the lobby, bathrooms, and main hall.
Disposable masks will be made available. Staff, volunteers, and attendees will be required to wear masks while in the building.
Anchor Church will use a digital bulletin and other digital materials instead of passing out printed materials.
Attendees will be given prepackaged communion cups.
Appropriate COVID-19 signage with public health reminders will be posted throughout the building.
Anchor Church will work with Sandler Center staff to ensure that thorough cleaning and sanitizing is done before and after each service by church staff/volunteers or a third-party cleaning company.
Attendees in the at-risk or vulnerable populations will be encouraged to continue watching the services online at home.
Anchor Church will ensure social distance seating in the main hall by using ushers to enforce social distancing. Only immediate family members will be permitted to sit together.
