COVID-19 PROTOCOLS as of August 4, 2021



Rationale for DVCC Guidelines

  • The Elders and Pastors have been closely following CDC and Pennsylvania state guidelines to develop our DVCC guidelines throughout the pandemic.

  • Recently, the CDC and the PA Dept. of Health have made further changes to their guidelines.

  • This version of the DVCC guidelines replaces prior guidelines and will be in effect until further notice.

  • Please note that we have a mixed group of people with differing attitudes regarding the impact of Covid-19.  Please be respectful to others as we meet together. We want to maintain a judgment free environment for the good of all.


  • Whether you are vaccinated or unvaccinated, please plan to stay home if you are feeling ill, have been diagnosed with COVID-19 (symptoms of COVID-19) , are waiting for COVID-19 test results, or if you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.

  • Masks are no longer required regardless of vaccination status.  However, you may continue to wear a mask if you are more comfortable doing so.

  • Registration for services at DVCC is no longer required.  Please just plan to come and worship with us.

  • Some individuals may still be concerned about contracting Covid-19.  We will resume row seating for at least part of the auditorium.  Please use good judgment and consider maintaining a reasonable distance from people who don’t live in your household. We will also continue to provide some seating that is separated into smaller groupings for those who may be uncomfortable in sitting in rows.

  • We encourage fellowship outdoors following services when the weather is favorable.
