COVID Safety Procedures

Masking Status (updated 2/15/23)


Masking is Optional  (Green/ low spread) We respect all those choosing to wear a mask and to not wear a mask. 


Clarendon Presbyterian Church Policy:

When Arlington, VA is at a low or green COVID Community Level as defined by the CDC, masking is OPTIONAL throughout the Clarendon Presbyterian Church building during non-PreK hours (outside of the hours of M-F, 7:00 am to 6:00 pm.)


When Arlington, VA is at a medium or yellow COVID Community Level as defined by the CDC, masking is REQUIRED throughout the Clarendon Presbyterian Church during worship.Masking remains OPTIONAL outside of Sunday morning worship.  We ask that you wear masks in common areas to protect the safety of all. 

The Clarendon Child Care Center (CCCC) sets their own masking policies while at low (green) or medium (yellow) COVID Community Spread as defined by the CDC M-F, 7:00 am to 6:00 pm. The CCCC Director and CPC Pastor may ask visitors to wear a mask in order to limit exposure to the regularly gathered PreK community.  When an update to the CCCC masking policy is made, Clarendon Presbyterian Church will advertise the change so that CPC members and guests in the building know how to follow the policy. 


As a church, we highly encourage and recommend our members and friends to be fully vaccinated.  If you are feeling sick, have been exposed to someone with COVID or have COVID, we ask that you not worship in person with us. We invite you to join us online! 


Outdoors:   Masks are always optional outdoors. Eating is always permitted. 


Clarendon Childcare Center:

Current Status: Masking optional M-F; 7 am - 6 pm

As of September 25, 2022, the Clarendon Child Care Center Board has approved a new indoor masking policy for fully vaccinated individuals.

Masks are optional for fully vaccinated individuals if the CDC Covid Community Level is Green (Low) or Medium (Yellow) in each of Arlington County, Fairfax County, and the City of Alexandria.  In connection with this policy, the Board commits to holding emerging meetings to consider changes to the mask policy on an as-needed basis, including as initiated at the discretion of the Board or at the Director's request. 

Currently, all of these conditions are being met.


Even when mask optional, parents must still follow all other COVID precautions and protocols, and are encouraged to mask themselves and/or their children with any sign of sickness even if not COVID-related.
