  • Masks are required and will be available at the door

  • Vaccinations will not be checked

  • Capacity of the cathedral has been reduced to discourage spread

The cathedral choir and orchestra will be masked for the duration of the performance, and testing requirements are in place.


Masks & Distancing

We have moved to a three-tiered approach for mask requirements, tied to CDC Community Risk Levels for Multnomah County (available here). Multnomah County's current risk level is Medium. Trinity's internal guidelines are as follows:

Level 1RED LIGHT (High Risk): Masks required at all times while on Trinity campus, regardless of vaccination status.

LEVEL 2 – YELLOW LIGHT (Medium Risk): Masks recommended while on Trinity campus, regardless of vaccination status.

LEVEL 3 – GREEN LIGHT (Low Risk): Masks encouraged for those most at risk: older individuals and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, autoimmune diseases, and cancer.


Due to new variants' extreme transmissibility, cloth masks are strongly discouraged when required. Please wear an N95, KN95, or KF94 if possible, or a well-fitting 3-ply surgical mask - layering surgical masks under cloth masks can provide a tighter seal.

N95, KN95, and KF94 masks can be reused for up to 5-7 days. Replace if misshapen, damaged, dirty, or if the mask gets wet or damp.
