Outdoor Summer Guidelines for Church Activities

United Parish Guidelines for Gathering Outdoors at the Church:

  • Fully vaccinated people are not required to wear a face mask, though are welcome to if that creates a comfortable space for them.
  • Unvaccinated people should wear a face covering unless they are unable to, due to medical reasons or are under the age of 5 years old.
  • If you don’t feel well, stay home
  • All attendees will be required to sign in or RSVP with name and phone number
  • Social distance when possible
  • If possible, food should be single served, pre-packaged and/or pre-ordered, or households can bring their own food.
  • If serving is needed, servers should be vaccinated
  • Hand sanitizer and cleaning products should be readily available
  • If singing will take place at the event, prior notice to any potential attendees must be given. At the event, fully vaccinated people are able to sing unmasked, and unvaccinated people must wear a face covering unless they are unable to do so.

United Parish Guidelines for Inside the Church:

At this time, most church events are happening outside. Masks must be worn inside at all times regardless of vaccination status.
