Following Government's latest advice, the Church of England recommends the following best practices.
Parishioners with coughs and sneezes should refrain from handshaking during The Peace, and should receive Communion in one kind only. At present, there is no Government advice that suggests the use of the Common Cup should be suspended. It is also best practice for churches to have hand-sanitisers available for parishioners to use. Intinction, dipping the wafer into the chalice, is not recommended as this represents an infection transmission route as well as a risk to those with certain allergies.
