COVID-19 UPDATE: Friday 18 February 2022
A quick COVID update following the Premier’s announcement this afternoon.
From 6.00am on Monday 21 February the revised public health and social measures includes the re-introduction of the two square metre rule for places of worship and 75% capacity for churches with forward facing seating.
No doubt you are working hard to keep all the COVID-safe practices with which we have become familiar over these last two years. This is now the time to take extra care in our communities, wearing masks, being vaccinated, caring for our people and supporting the vulnerable.
There are already some positive cases in parishes, agencies and schools with a number of people needing to isolate and be tested. We all expect these numbers to rise in coming weeks.
Be safe, stay well.
God of compassion,
you have shown us in Christ
that your love is never ending:
enable us both to love you with all our heart
and to love one another as Christ loved us.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
The Most Reverend Kay Goldsworthy AO | Archbishop
