It's called the "God Pod."
OTTAWA -- St. John Lutheran Church in Ottawa's New Edinburgh neighbourhood has found a creative way to help people stay connected during the COVID-19 pandemic.
At the front of the sanctuary is a see-through, 4' x 6' enclosed compartment, where parishioners can sit less than two metres apart from their pastor and they don't need to wear a mask.
That's because there's a glass partition between the two sides and an air filtration system to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
