Regathering in the Interfaith Chapel

The Process

  • Guidelines are designed to ensure safe and healthy experience for Chapel users. 
  • Administration first set parameters in accord with directives from the CDC, the Maryland Department of Health and Prince George’s County.
  • Using, as primary reference Covidmaterials from Insurance Companies and major Denominations, a resident workgroup then developed criteria uniquely relative to the Chapel and which also Administration approved.
  • Guidelines will change and evolve in response to new Phases of pandemic response.
  • Each Faith Group is responsible for meeting all Guideline Criteria.
  • Copies of complete Guidelines will be distributed in each resident’s mail slot.
