REDDING, Calif. – Some places of worship will be welcoming their members back after the Supreme Court lifted the indoor ban.
Gov. Gavin Newsom’s office issued revised guidelines that limit attendance at indoor services in areas with widespread or substantial virus spread.
First Christian Church of Redding, will have two services on Sunday – 9:30 and 11:15 a.m. The 9:30 service is already full.
The church is requiring its members to sign up ahead of time in order to attend indoor services. The church is only letting in 30 people per service.
The church will space chairs out, require people to wear masks, and will place hand sanitizers out for people to use.
“As you can see we have social distancing still as well, each chair has their own book that they touch,” explained Rhonda Temple. “We're making sure that everybody wears masks. There's sanitation and everything to just make sure we're following the rules.”
First Christian Church will still be live streaming services for people who would like to stay at home.
