NOTE:  In line with guidelines set out by Toronto Public Health, every reasonable precaution has been and will continue to be taken by Knox United Church to protect your health and well-being.  However, there can be no guarantees of complete protection due to the higher risks of contracting viral infection through larger gatherings.
