Vaccination-differentiated safe management measures (VDS) are no longer required for memorials and funerals conducted by our pastors and ministry staff, regardless of the number of attendees, following the Ministry of Health’s update as of 10 October 2022.
Mask-wearing is optional but encouraged for both indoor and outdoor settings. However, our pastors and ministry staff have the discretion to implement mask-wearing as a condition of entry at wake venues.
While VDS have been lifted, we would like to remind everyone to continue exercising personal and social responsibility by maintaining hygiene, testing, minimising social interactions when unwell, and keeping up-to-date with vaccinations. Should there be changes, we should be prepared to adjust plans accordingly.
The Homegoing Funeral Procedures Guide, designed for our cell leaders, seeks to provide assistance to the family of a cell member when a death occurs. In this guide, we highlight some scenarios you may encounter and provide the practical help you may need.
