COVID 19 Guidelines

Covid Guidelines (updated)
  • The Archdiocese requires those who have not been vaccinated to wear a mask and strongly recommends that everyone wear a mask regardless of vaccination status when entering church facilities.
  • Holy Communion may be received on the hand or tongue in the center aisle from a deacon or priest, with “hand only” reception available from a Eucharistic Minister stationed on the left or right sides of the center aisle.
  • Parishioners are responsible for maintaining a distance of 3 feet between you/your family and others.
Specific instances and exceptions where the dispensation is still applicable
at this time:

1. You are ill or you have a health condition that would be significantly compromised if you were to contract a communicable illness (i.e., you have underlying conditions or are in a high-risk category). Please use the dispensation and do not attend Mass.
2. You are experiencing flu-like symptoms.
3. You have been exposed to someone who has tested positive or you have reason to think you might be asymptomatic of a contagious illness.
4. You care for the sick, homebound, or infirm.
5. You are pregnant.
6. You are 65 years of age or older (per the CDC’s recommendation of high-risk individuals).
7. You cannot attend Mass through no fault of your own (e.g., no Mass is offered, you are infirm, your ride did not show up, the church was at capacity).
8. You have significant fear or anxiety of becoming ill by being at Mass.For those unable to attend Mass, you may join us through the livestream of our Sunday 11AM Mass through the MOQ website HERE.

We do expect the policies of both the Diocese of Atlanta and of Mary Our Queen to continue to change as time goes on. We will keep you informed of the changes as they occur. Know that we greatly appreciate your understanding and support as we return to the time where we will once again have an open Church without the restrictions the COVID pandemic have forced upon us.
