Trinity is suspending all in-person activities

 

The Omicron variant of Covid-19 is currently raging in our community, our province, as well as across this country. The ability for this version of the virus to spread rapidly is unprecedented. In our efforts to keep all of us safe and healthy, Trinity is suspending all in-person activities for a while. 

This means that as of January 1, 2022 worship and all group or club meetings will need to become remote gatherings. There is a hold on any further weddings, funerals, baptisms, or other religious and social gatherings until further notice. Staff are going to return to or continue to work remotely. The office will be closed but you may continue to access staff by email or phone messages. 

On-line worship will continue through the Trinity YouTube channel but will be pre-recorded and not live-streamed from the sanctuary.

We are unclear as to how long this closure will last. Dr Kieran Moore, Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health reported yesterday that he expects this surge of illness will continue for at least the next 6 to 8 weeks. The demand for medical services is currently so high that it cannot be met. The symptoms of Omicron are similar to the common cold, only more severe. If you think you might be getting a cold, it is most likely Omicron says Dr. Moore. Self isolate and quarantine with any members of your household. Quarantine times have been adjusted to 5 days, down from 14 days.

The Reopening Team will continue to monitor the situation and will be meeting every 2 weeks to review. We will update everyone as soon as the situation improves.

Stay safe, stay healthy and when possible, stay home.
