Here are the new guidelines (effective May 29, 2021) that is based on Virginia’s Conference’s TAM (Technical Assistance Manual) and Governor Northam’s social distancing and mask wearing protocol via the Center for Disease Control’s guidelines:
- Masks are no longer required during worship services or other inside events or meetings. They are still encouraged for those who have not received the vaccine. Individual classes & committees will determine how their groups will meet.
- Social distancing is still encouraged during the worship services and other events, meetings and classes.
- Out of an abundance of caution, screening, i.e. temperature checks of those attending worship service will continue for the time being. This screening will not include the checking of proof of vaccination nor any inquiry will be made about vaccination status.
- Adequate personal hygiene is encouraged as it limits the spreading of germs that cause sickness.
We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding during the course of this unparalleled time. May God bless each and every one of you and your families.
