Current COVID-19 Guidelines and Protocols

Clergy in charge of congregations, whether in parishes, missions, or other settings, have authority to make decisions regarding worship and COVID protocols in their specific and local context. This includes decisions around masking, social distancing, receptions and other gatherings involving food, and the use of the common cup in celebrations of the Holy Eucharist.

Please continue to monitor your COVID-19 Community Level. If that level is high/orange, please be cautious and adopt the more stringent protocols as has been done in the past. If the local level is medium/yellow, loosen restrictions. If the level is low/green, loosen as far as you are comfortable. Please do check the level for your area regularly, so you may respond accordingly, and please encourage vaccination and boosters.
