Some Suggested Guidelines
Now that there are no mandatory guidelines it is now left to the individual and the communities to take responsibility of keeping one self safe and more importantly keeping the other comfortable and safe.
Some suggestions are listed before
- If you feel unwell, likely to have caught a flew like symptoms, avoid public places and take extra care to keep it spreading to others. You would know it best and do not expect the other to guess your health condition. Always think that the other is vulnerable, however resilient you think you may be.
- Sanitise your hands as needed and avoid touching your face or shaking hands, unless needed.
- Wearing masks in church is no longer needed. But please do if you feel the need. It would be best to wear a mask when it deems unsafe or crowded as is best suits you. Please respect those who may be wearing one.
- Respect the others, make them comfortable by keeping a distance or checking with them before shaking hands etc.
Use of Microphone on the Lectern – Please do not adjust the microphone on the lectern. It is a ‘lectern microphone’ different to the voice handheld microphones. It is also different to the microphone you used in the past, it is a new install and it is very sensitive. Lectern microphones must not be touched as they are set to not to interfere with the book, or paper held as they are very sensitive. Touching and banging on it affects adversely those using the hearing aid system as they are very sensitive. The only thing you adjust is your own voice and the direction of your voice’s projection.
If you need the microphone closer to the mouth, kindly use the stand alone microphone which is left on Our Lady’s side. Thank you.
If you feel that you have to adjust the lectern microphone then please best to not to take up reading from the lectern during the Holy Mass please.
