Wearing Face Masks

From this weekend onwards (Sunday 30th August) wearing a face mask is strongly encouraged when attending Mass or other liturgical celebrations in St Colmcille’s. The physical distance of 2 metres is also still in place at all times in the church and the church grounds. 

Please be aware that there are some people who are exempt from wearing face masks. If you want to know who is in this group of people, please visit https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/articles/coronavirus-covid-19-face-coverings. This page also gives some useful guidelines and links for further information on face coverings including a link to the World Health Organisation’s advice for the public on when and how to use masks – https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/advice-for-public/when-and-how-to-use-masks
