***Please note that the outdoor and indoor capacities listed below are current as of April 9, 2021. As information and policy changes from medical and public health sources, we will update capacities. Our capacities will never exceed those allowed by local authorities or the Office of the Bishop. Our hope and plan remain to restart Sunday services on May 23.
Out of love and concern for the health of our neighbors, worshipping community, and staff, Saint John’s Cathedral continues to limit people that can be on-site at the cathedral to fewer than ten people if indoors and to fewer than 50 people if outdoors.
Our hope, of course, is that no one is exposed to COVID-19 while at Saint John’s. We appreciate your understanding and support, and we thank you for staying home if you are or if someone in your household is not feeling well or may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.
During this time, people that are on-site at the cathedral must wear masks, practice physical distancing, and must sign-in and provide their contact information. If someone is COVID-19 positive while at Saint John’s Cathedral, we will assist the Denver Health Department in contact tracing.
In the instance that a person is COVID-19 positive while on-site at the cathedral, we will assess the timing and unique circumstances of their visit and take all necessary actions to notify those that were exposed to that person and so may want to get tested or quarantine.
We take to heart the safety of everyone in our community, which is why we are being so careful in the ways we are interacting in-person. All of our policies are in-line with the policies of the Office of the Bishop, the City of Denver, the State of Colorado, the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE), and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). For these reasons, an all-parish email and a notice on our website of an on-site case will only go out if the timing of the case requires a significant change to activities, such as needing to pause the in-person reception of Holy Communion on Sundays. We will continue to update this policy as more information is released on COVID-19 and the vaccine.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Please know that while we understand that we must limit our in-person events, we also miss gathering with our beloved community. We miss you all.
