The Governing Board has appointed a Covid Team to develop guidelines for summer worship and gatherings, which will be re-evaluated for September. The Covid Team is Barbara, Tiffany, Tara and Jon. Guidelines will be sent to the Board for approval, and then implemented by the appropriate ministries: Worship, Operations, CE, Fellowship, etc.
The Team has updated our protocols for Outdoor Worship: masks and keeping 6' distance are now optional. This decision is based on the changes in CDC and MA guidelines, that outdoor transmission is exceedingly rare, and that schools no longer require masks for outdoor activities. That said, we all have different comfort levels and situations, so each one of us is encouraged to do what is right for ourselves and our family. We will continue to respect the decisions of all when we gather. More protocol updates coming!
