This Guidance is offered to the Dioceses of England and Wales as the country moves into Step 4 of the Government’s Covid-19 Response Roadmap. This comes into effect on Monday 19th July 2021.
Government guidance for the safe use of places of worship.
It is important to reiterate that as Step 4 is reached, the general principles of continuing to create a safe environment in places of worship and their ancillary buildings are not abandoned. Indeed, the way forward must be a collective endeavour of all involved in the daily life of the Catholic Church in England and Wales. Recognition of the presence of the virus in the population means that certain preventative practices will still be required.
