Last week the CDC issued new guidance regarding recommended protocols around COVID-19 mitigation for those who are fully vaccinated (two weeks after the last dose of vaccine). This includes relaxing mask and distancing requirements for fully-vaccinated youth and adults.
We rejoice at the progress toward overcoming the pandemic! We encourage church leaders to review your plans for in-person gathering considering the most current CDC guidance, local guidance in your area, consultation with your Health and Welfare team, and considering your context and membership.
