Keeping You Safe - Covid-19 Safety Measures

We continue to follow government guidelines. Following on from the latest Government announcement, face coverings are now mandatory when in the Cathedral. All our services will continue as planned in line with guidance for acts of worship.

NHS Covid-Passes aren’t required for entry or to attend a service.

Seating at services will not be socially distanced but for people’s safety and comfort we will be limiting attendance.

Please do not attend a service if you have any symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19).
