Updates from Fourth Presbyterian Church


A Mask-Welcoming Community

April 1, 2022

Beginning Sunday, April 3, masks will be welcome but not required for everyone on the Fourth Church campus.

As a mask-welcoming campus, we affirm that mask wearing continues to be an effective preventative measure for individuals. Thus we not only encourage the wearing of masks by anyone who wants or needs to wear one, but we are also committed to ensuring no one will feel out of place should they choose to wear a mask while at the church.

Since some populations are more vulnerable to COVID-19 than others, some programs on the Fourth Church campus may choose to require masks. That is a decision that will be made on a program-by-program basis.

We will also continue to require masks be worn in the socially distanced seating section in the Sanctuary.

We know that some worshipers may be uncomfortable being near those who are singing while unmasked. We invite those who are concerned about this to either worship with us, masked, in the socially distanced seating section or join us in worshiping online.

Additionally, we are continuing our practice of not checking vaccination status, but anyone coming on site certifies by doing so that (a) they do not currently have COVID-19; (b) they are not experiencing COVID symptoms; (c) they have no reason to quarantine; and (d) they will wear a mask and practice social distancing if they are not vaccinated against COVID-19.
