Seattle Unity Covid-19 Safety Plan for In-Person Events

Last Revised 3.08.2022

Intention Statement:

Seattle Unity will comply with state regulations and take actions to set up the safest possible environment for our team members and guests.

Starting March 13th, wearing face masks at Sunday services will be optional in alignment with changing state and King County guidelines.  We are continuing to ask everyone to please pre-register or sign-in at the front door upon arrival.

Community Visitors

  • Everyone is welcome to attend in-person Sunday services without pre-registering. You will be asked to sign-in at the door upon arrival, so you can save time by registering in advance.  We are continuing the sign-in at this time in case contact tracing becomes necessary.
  • We ask everyone to be seated by 9:55 am.
  • Everyone in attendance must leave the premises by noon.
  • There will be no food or drinks provided onsite. You are welcome to bring your own drink in a closed container.
  • There will be no childcare or youth programs at this time. Children must sit with parents or adult guardians in the service.

All people present on site must:

  • Self-screen for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 before arriving at the location. (this includes checking your temperature to ensure it is less than 100.4°F)
  • Wearing of face masks is optional. Note, there will be singing by both musicians and congregants without masks.  If you are uncomfortable with this, you may want to continue to wear a mask and seat further back in the space.  We will still be livestreaming services.
  • Physical distancing is not required, but please be mindful of individuals that are still more comfortable maintaining physical distance from others.
  • Please note: Any individual with a household member who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or with symptoms of COVID-19 (including a fever above 100.4°F within the past 14 days) may not attend the service or attend work at the organization.
  • You are welcome to move your chair or sit at the back of the room if you are more comfortable with 6 ft or greater distancing.
  • Please enter through the front door at 1st
  • Seattle Unity strongly encourages everyone to be vaccinated.

Seattle Unity will:

  • Provide this COVID-19 safety plan for all individuals attending in-person services.
  • Have a copy of the plan available at the location for inspection by state and local authorities.
  • Increase ventilation rates where feasible - doors open depending on weather.

Post-exposure Incident Recovery Plan
