COVID Policy Updates for Sunday, February 5

Masks Required

Living Table and Spirit remain "masks required." Lake Nokomis Lutheran is "masks welcome but optional."


As you know, Lake Nokomis Lutheran is now “mask optional” in the large sanctuary during their worship service as long as the three counties remain in the green. Living Table requires masks in the small sanctuary.

According to COVID Act Now Hennepin, Ramsey, and Dakota Counties remain in the green this week so LNL will be able to unmask during their service if they choose.

Everyone is required to mask in the common areas of New Branches except while eating and drinking. Please remember to put your mask back on after eating or drinking.

If having a large number of unmasked people in the building increases your risk, please continue to join us on Zoom.

You will find a new “Masking” menu item on the website, under the “Sundays” menu. This will always bring you to the latest masking policy for Living Table.

  1. Check out COVID Act Now website ( to get the latest numbers that are being used for deciding if the New Branches policy will go back to the all masks in all large gatherings. Yellow in Hennepin or Ramsey counties will signal that “Masks Welcome” in LNLC worship will back to “Masks Required” until the numbers are down again to Green.
