Updated COVID-19 Guidance (June 30, 2021)

Bethel Family,

Washington State has moved into the “Washington Ready” plan of their COVID guidance. The previous industry specific guidelines have been superseded by a simplified industry-wide set of guidelines seen HERE. Below is a brief summary of how these changes effect Bethel:

SOCIAL DISTANCING - Social distancing is not required regardless of vaccination status or location.

CAPACITY LIMITS - There are no capacity limits in rooms and buildings beyond fire code. This does not depend on vaccination status. Bethel venue seating may be increased as needed to support demand.

FOOD - There are no more restrictions on serving food/coffee/etc.

As a reminder, Bethel will never ask for vaccination status or proof of vaccination, and we will not segregate the congregation based on vaccination status. We will continue to follow State and CDC guidance for face mask use based on the honor system.

For those attending Richland campus who prefer a 'mask only' venue, the HUB will remain open.
