1. Remove the mask mandate for public gatherings: We will no longer require masks or social distancing for indoor and outdoor gatherings effective immediately.
2. We will provide space for social distancing for those who are at risk: We recognize there are still groups of people who are vulnerable to the virus and who still require social distancing. Seating on the outer edges of the sanctuary will accommodate this need.
3. We will operate on the honor system when it comes to compliance with the state of Connecticut: The direction from the state applies to those who have been fully vaccinated. At the same time, we will leave the decision up to the individual and family.
4. We are still requiring masks and social distancing at youth and children’s activities: Following the direction of the state, we will still require masks and social distancing for youth and children’s activities for the remainder of the school year.
We are excited to see signs of returning to a more normal way of life. At the same time, we want to remain sensitive to the various needs and concerns pertaining to this virus. If you see someone at a church gathering wearing a mask, please be conscious of the need to maintain some social distancing.
We will continue to adjust along with other announcements that may come out in the future.
Thank you for your patience and for considering the concerns of others.
