Communicating this guidance

Those responsible for a place of worship should engage and communicate with worshippers and the wider community to explain what activity is permitted and what is still prohibited.

Places of worship and faith leaders should consider how guidance can be communicated to visitors, including before they visit. This should be done in a way that is accessible and appropriate for the cultures, languages and reading levels of communities served by the place of worship.

A range of materials to help communicate general information about COVID-19 is available on the NHS Inform website.
