Burlington Baptist Church Covid Protocols

Effective November 1, 2021, everyone attending any Burlington Baptist Church gathering in-person, including Sunday worship services, MUST be fully vaccinated.  The purpose of this policy is to do our best to create and maintain a safe space for all, a responsibility our Board takes very seriously.

At this time, this only applies to “eligible” persons, meaning that children and youth 12 years of age and under are exempt.  Only if and when they become eligible for vaccines will the policy apply to them as well.  In the meantime, we want our children and youth to know they are welcome in church.

All those entering the building for church gatherings, or other functions, will need to have been “verified,” meaning that they have shown they are fully vaccinated.  There are a couple of options for doing this.

  • Send a copy of your most recent vaccine receipt to the Church Office where it will be kept on file for this purpose only.  Electronic copies may be emailed to Jackie, our Church Administrator,  at Office@burlingtonbaptist.com, and hard copies may be mailed to or dropped off at the Office.  If you would prefer that we not keep your record on file, you may simply produce it for Jackie to see and to note.  Once you have been “verified,” there will be no need for you to show proof of vaccination again.
  • Show a copy of your most recent vaccine receipt upon entering the church

Please note: those entering the building who have not been verified, or who cannot produce acceptable vaccine documentation, will be asked to leave the building immediately.  While it may sound inappropriate for a church (especially our church) to turn anyone away, we feel that these exceptional times in which we live call for this exceptional action.  We encourage those who are unvaccinated to join us online.

We will continue to follow all provincial and public health guidelines as a church.  In particular, this means that we all must still maintain appropriate distancing and that face masks must be worn at all times inside the church building.  The only times face masks may be removed are when those in leadership are presiding at religious services.

If you have questions about how to complete the verification process, please direct them to Jackie at the Church Office by email (Office@burlingtonbaptist.com) or by calling 905-634-2477.
