UPDATE: New Restrictions Ordered by the Governor

Governor Northam has ordered that all non-worship gatherings, indoor and outdoor, be restricted to ten people or less. This will impact Sunday school classes and other groups that meet in-person on the church property. Outdoor worship, however, is excluded from this order. We believe that with our precautions such as requiring mask usage, social distancing, and keeping attendance to twenty-five people or less, we can safely hold outdoor communion. Because of our attendance limit, if you register and find that you cannot attend, please let Tina Marcus (703-527-3934 or tmarcus@mtolivet-umc.org) know as a courtesy so we can allow others to attend who might be on the waiting list.  

  1. There will be a maximum of 25 people.
  2. You are required to register to attend in-person.
  3. You must be able to affirm to the greeter that these statements are true for you:

  • I have not had 2 or more of the following symptoms of COVID-19 in the past 14 days:
  • Fever
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Chills
  • Persistent cough
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Diarrhea or intestinal upset
  • Fatigue
  • Sore throat
  • Headache
  • Muscle pain
  • Recent loss of taste or smell
  • I have not been in contact with anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 identified in #1) in the past 14 days.
  • I have not tested positive for COVID-19, nor am I awaiting test results, nor have I tested positive and have not subsequently had complete resolution of COVID-19 symptoms.
  • I will immediately notify the pastor if, after attending this event, I test positive for COVID-19, and will avoid contact with others and will seek medical attention.
