As we settle into the new norm COVID-19 has created, it’s time to think about what happens when our churches reopen. While we look forward to the day we can worship together in-person, the way we once gathered will inevitably look different. This reality is leading us to create contingency plans for the reopening of church buildings in order to help our congregation prepare for this new way of gathering in the future.

Slowly phasing in gatherings over a period of time can benefit our faith community by putting the spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional health of our congregations first. This guide is designed to help you think through various points of consideration as your church implements new methods and procedures to prepare your operations for the changes in the way we gather and worship.

The Center for Disease Control has issued “Environmental Cleaning and Disinfection Recommendations.” Unlike normal cleaning procedures, it is recommended that all furniture and fixtures be thoroughly disinfected including every seat, hymnal, offering plate, door handle, walkways, stairwells, and floors.

A place of worship is more than just a place to pray, it’s also a place where people come together as a community. We know how important your place of worship is to your congregation. That’s why we’ve created a dedicated religious facility and church cleaning program designed specifically for religious spaces. With religious facility and church cleaning services from electrostatic disinfection, your place of worship will be a bright and shining beacon for your community.
