It is wonderful to welcome you back but we must warn you that even with best health practices and strict social distancing, anyone who enters a public space should recognize there is a risk of contracting the coronavirus. We will be increasing our cleaning in The church , but no one should expect that they will be any safer from germs than in other public spaces.
