ENCS COVID-19 Mitigation Plan

Every Nation Church Seattle is open for in-person gatherings at our new building. Below is the outline of our COVID Mitigation Plan.

For more information on what to expect at our in-person gatherings, check out our FAQ page here.

In-Person Service


The prominent display of signage will inform and guide attendees through the check-in process and safely navigate through the church spaces. Signage (links provided below) developed by the CDC and King County shall be placed at the entry of the church building to provide guidance for service attendees.

Face Coverings

We are requesting that all attendees comply with the Order of the Secretary of Health 20-03.4 which states that all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, must wear face coverings in indoor public places. Please refer to the order for exceptions to this requirement.

Attendee Screening

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) may not attend the service until medically cleared (or if symptoms have improved, no fever for 24 hours, and 10 days after symptoms began, per WA COVID Faith Organizations FAQ.


Soap and running water will be made available within the restrooms. While waiting to use the restroom, service attendees will be directed to maintain the 6 feet physical distancing.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Hand sanitizer, tissues and trash receptacles will be placed throughout the areas where service attendees will be present.

Tithes & Offerings

Giving of tithes and offerings will continue to be collected through the online platform. The connection and check-in form will continue to be collected through the online form.


We currently have limited children's ministry in our lower level for babies ages 0-3 (Nursery) and children ages 4-11 (Elementary). Parents are able to drop their children off after the announcement portion of the worship gathering. The summer gatherings for middle school has ended and will resume in the fall. Children under the age of 11 must remain with family unless they are checked into Kids Church. Per the current mask mandate as of August 23, 2021, children 5 and over must wear a mask indoors. 

Exposure Protocol

Service attendees are asked to notify church staff if they experience COVID-19 symptoms and/or test positive for COVID-19, this will be kept confidential. If church staff are notified of a possible exposure, an email will be sent to the church. If an area in the church has been exposed to a possible person exhibiting symptoms, that area will be cordoned off until cleaning can be conducted.


Disinfectants and other CDC approved cleaning products will be made available to employees and service attendees throughout the church building. These supplies will be replenished as needed.

High touch surfaces should be cleaned after each service. Surfaces to be cleaned include but are not limited to: mirrors, chairs, headrests and armrests, doorknobs, handrails and restrooms. Every Nation Seattle is contracting with a cleaning company to provide weekly service every Monday for sanitization of high touch surfaces throughout the building.
