Re-Entering Well – Procedures for In-Person Events and Small Groups at CCUMC
Due to the changes initiated by Montgomery County government, https://montgomerycountymd.gov/covid19/face-coverings.html , we will continue our policy of protecting all who use the church building by asking all individuals to wear a face covering at all times while inside the building. Our church preschool is operating in-person and church staff are increasing work from the building.
In keeping with our current policy, those who are experiencing cold symptoms and/or those who have been traveling recently are invited to join us virtually for worship at home.
Please remember that caution, safety, and new health guidelines require changes to our operating procedures for the immediate future. We do not know how long these changes and new procedures will remain in effect, but as a congregation we will continue to do all we can to follow our United Methodist General Rules to do no harm, do good, and stay in love with God.
|COVID Basic Safety Protocols:|
After any higher risk activity (listed below from the CDC) it is recommended you quarantine for 5 days then receive PCR testing at a trusted facility and continue your quarantine until results are negative.
