Step 3 effective June 16, 2022

https://www.catholicyyc.ca/blog/covid19

We are all asked to exercise respect, charity, and kindness with one another and to be conscious of the varying comfort levels of people especially in the following areas:

People who have symptoms not related to a pre-existing condition should avoid going to the church or being in public as a courtesy to others.

In order to respect people’s personal space and comfort level, it would be a prudent practice to allow for some distance between people of different households.

For the sign of peace, we are asked to exchange peace with those outside of our household with a bow or a nod and not by a handshake.

In social settings, it would be charitable not to presume that others are comfortable to shake hands or to hug.

At this time, we continue to pace our walk together with a lot of care and concern for the good of everyone.
