As the incidence for COVID cases is significantly reducing, multiple communities are eliminating their mask mandates and the CDC is recommending that 70% of Americans no longer need to mask. In response to the improvement Village Church is revising our COVID guidelines to the following:
- For indoor church activities, vaccinate/boosted individuals – mask “per choice.” unvaccinated adults and unvaccinated children older than age 2 – masks are highly recommended for congregational health and safety.
- For outdoor church activities, both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals may be unmasked, with mask wearing “per choice.”
- For coffee hour and inside group gatherings, vaccinated/boosted individuals – mask “per choice.” Food and beverages can be consumed in the church unmasked. unvaccinated adults and unvaccinated children older than age 2 – masks are highly recommended while utilizing the quick “sip & mask” method at the present time while consuming food and beverage.
- Church sign-ins for COVID monitoring will no longer be required. Worship service sign-ins will remain for service attendance record keeping.
