COVID-19 Response

Introduction

As we continue our core team gatherings we want to give clearer communication as to how we can create the most “low risk” environment at our gatherings. King Jesus is doing a special work and we want to ensure we follow what is outlined by the Larimer County Health Department not only to avoid unnecessary roadblocks, but to protect the health of all, and honor those passing by. As we resume corporate worship, we will be following guidelines for social distancing in worship as we are aware of the increased risk factors involved in gathering large groups

FOR INDIVIDUALS ATTENDING WORSHIP SERVICES

  • For all vulnerable individuals who would be at a higher risk of serious infection, we will continue to provide access to worship online through our Facebook and YouTube page, Citylight Church Fort Collins.
  • For all who plan to attend worship, follow healthy hygiene practices as you prepare to come to services:
    • If you are sick or have had close contact with a person with COVID-19, stay home. 
    • Sanitize your hands before and after entering the gathering space using provided hand sanitizer upon entry. 
    • Maintain six feet of physical distance from those who are not members of your immediate household while entering the gathering, waiting in line for the kids check-in, and while waiting for breakfast.
    • Masks are not required at outdoor spaces by the Larimer County Health Department. However, we will have them provided if you would feel more comfortable.
    • Our picnic tables will be spaced out by six feet. If you’d feel more comfortable, bring a lawn chair and sit on the perimeter of our gathering. 
  • For all staff and volunteers
    • We will require following all healthy hygiene practices, including the use of facial coverings for those serving food or coffee. We will also require masks to be worn by our kids volunteers while they are in the kids “tents.”
    • The welcome team is required to not greet people with physical contact as a means to mitigate the risk.

    What happens if someone tests positive for COVID-19?

    • If you were to test COVID-19 positive after attending a worship service at Citylight Church, we ask you to notify us as soon as possible. 
    • If we are made aware of an individual who was present in worship and later tested positive, we will inform our members and attenders via email and social media. 
      • We will not provide names or contact specific individuals. That responsibility will fall to the individual and local health officials. 
      • We will inform you transparently. For example, an email might say, “We are informing you that an individual who tested COVID positive on Wednesday was present in our 8:45am service this past Sunday.”  

    If you had direct exposure / close contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19, the CDC guidance urges you to stay home and self-monitor for symptoms and follow CDC guidance if symptoms develop.
