UUCM’s COVID Safety Policy -Sept. 2022

The congregation shared ideas about what our current Covid policy should be at this time. In view of the input received, we are adjusting our requirements and adding a new feature. Note that any policy statement is subject to change as the pandemic situation changes. For now, masks are recommended but not mandatory. We ask people to remember we are entering Flu season so that is another issue to keep in mind. Please be careful and refrain from attending church if you are ill with a communicable disease, or think you might be. You are welcome to attend via Zoom in those situations.
New Feature: We will also start a sticker system for our name badges with red, yellow and green stickers. On Sunday, please put a colored sticker on your name badge to indicate your comfort level. We will use these to guide our interactions and respect each others’ boundaries.

🔴 Red means six feet apart and no physical contact

🟡 Yellow is “elbows only,” for people still being cautious, avoiding close contact, but not necessarily needing to be six feet apart.

🟢 Green welcomes high fives and handshakes and maybe hugs with permission.

You will be able to get your sticker, and figure out name tag needs, in our entry area. Please take note of what is on everyone’s badges and respect people’s wishes. If you have any questions or comments contact Rev. Tony and the Board of Trustees via email: trustees@uumeriden.org.
