Phase Forward Team Updates
Council received additional advice and recommendations from UCW Phase Forward based on the most recent CDC criteria for low-risk communities. Phase Forward guidance indicates that it is now safe to ease some of our pandemic mitigation measures and allow for additional indoor in-person activities. For example, now our full choir will be able to sing together with masks and Deacons can pass the offering plate. It will be possible to offer church fellowship in our reception room. Keeping in mind that in- person reception may not be safe for everyone and there is no zero risk, we will encourage distancing for those who are low risk and vaccinated to join in reception fellowship. At this time of individual choice, we are aware that some do not feel safe in joining in person so we will continue extend fellowship to all remotely. Council will continue to be vigilant in assessing risk and hopeful that as rates continue to drop, it will become safer to move freely unmasked.
