Re-Entering Well – Procedures for In-Person Events at CCUMC
The Re-entry Task Force has committed to meeting throughout the pandemic, to ensure safety among our church family and visitors. Members of the Task Force met again recently to evaluate the latest trends and make recommendations to the Church Council.
At the most recent meetings of the Task Force and Church Council, the following updated protocol was crafted:
First, continue to monitor yourself for any signs of illness, including fever, sore throat or nausea. If you test positive for COVID, or have been exposed to someone with the virus, please isolate yourself for 5 days and follow guidance from your physician about returning to normal activities with a mask for an additional five days, once you are clear of symptoms.
Out of an abundance of caution, those adults working within the population of 5 and under who cannot yet receive the vaccine, are asked to wear a mask and practice physical distancing protocols.
We privilege the protection of our most vulnerable members of society and ask that members of the church keep current with recommendations for vaccinations and boosters, whenever possible. Those who are not up to date on their vaccination are asked to wear a mask and/or to observe physical distancing around others.
Moving forward, the Church will follow CDC, State and Local guidelines as necessary. For example, in the event that is another surge in Montgomery County, the Church Council may recommend putting a mask mandate back in place.
