As a consequence of the government’s “Plan B” Regulations issued on 8th December the Church of England and the RSCM have issued revised guidance for churches and choirs. The principal change is that it becomes mandatory to wear face coverings in places of worship “except where not practical (for instance when singing or leading worship)”. Other advice and legal restrictions remain unaltered.

RSCM have issued a FAQ document, and the updated Church of England advice may be viewed here.
