Re-Opening Task Force

March 29, 2022

Based on the continued low prevalence of the Covid 19 virus in our community, the Reopening Task Force considers moving back to worship services in the Sanctuary to be low risk.  The Parish Hall will continue to function as the Worship Cafe during Sunday worship services, and the services will continue to be shared on Zoom and YouTube

In addition, the Youth Room and Music Room now have air purifiers with HEPA filters.  Per calculations performed by Ed Quinlan and Jan Galkowski, the two air purifiers in each of these rooms provides the equivalent ventilation and air purification to allow the use of these rooms to be low risk for small gatherings.  As usual, it is expected that everyone coming in to the church wear masks of surgical or higher quality, and wear the masks properly.  

If you are not feeling well, or if you have been exposed to someone with Covid 19, please do not come into the church until you are feeling well and have documented that you do not have an active Covid infection.
