The Annual ELCA Assembly is coming up in April. All participants — voting members, visitors, volunteers, contract staff and churchwide staff attending the assembly will have to either show proof of being fully vaccinated or provide a negative COVID test result taken 1-3 days prior to traveling to the assembly if they are unvaccinated.

No virtual option is offered for voting members.


There are also no religious exemptions being offered by the ELCA to its vaccine or negative test requirement.
