St. David’s Risk-Based Guidelines

UPDATED: Oct. 1, 2021


St. David’s follows COVID-19 protocols in our church buildings during the coronavirus pandemic. This includes: wearing masks at all times and maintaining at least six feet for physical distancing.

A small task force has been discussing and developing a plan for how to ease restrictions on a variety of activities here at St. David’s Church. The following are St. David’s COVID-19 Risk-Based Guidelines. They are closely tied to the Austin-Travis County’s Risk-Based Guidelines, and are subject to change.

Austin moved to Stage 3 of 5 on Oct. 13, 2021.
