how we’re keeping you safe

At Woodside, we’re committed to helping you and your family stay healthy. Our Coronavirus Task Force, comprised of highly credentialed doctors and medical professionals, continues to refine our policies in response to the most recent medical information and civic guidelines. See below for details concerning our Sunday worship gatherings, mid-week programming, and Woodside Kids environments.

Subject to medical exceptions, face coverings must be worn when entering and exiting the worship center, including in the lobby and restrooms. Face coverings may be removed once seated in the worship center, unless seated in a designated “Mask Required” section.

Some campuses offer a “Mask Required” gathering in which face coverings are worn for the entirety of the gathering. Contact your campus below to learn more about campus-specific guidelines.

Many mid-week programs have resumed within the guidelines of a 25% capacity limit. Social distancing is to be practiced at all times and face coverings must be worn in common areas. Face coverings may be removed once seated, unless otherwise communicated by the ministry leader.

Please contact your campus below with questions about ministry-specific guidelines.

The Woodside App is used to complete a touchless check-in, which includes a series of wellness questions for both families and volunteers. Anyone displaying symptoms of flu, respiratory distress, or other ailments will not be permitted. Woodside Kids environments are sanitized between each use and hand washing or sanitization is mandatory upon entry. All volunteers have their temperatures checked upon entry and are not permitted if their temperature exceeds 100.4.
