Haliburton United Church and Lochlin United Church are closing again for Sunday services and other gatherings of more than 10 people. Ingoldsby United Church remains fully closed.
The Haliburton and Lochlin church closures are effective December 26 until January 23 in accordance with the province-wide shutdown announced by the provincial government on December 21. The shutdown is an effort to flatten the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in the face of escalating hospitalization rates.
Online services on Sundays will move to 10:30 a.m. for the duration of the shutdown. The services are recorded for later viewing. To learn how to watch online, visit the Watch Services Online page at haliburtonpastoralcharge.com.
