UPDATES TO RHUC COVID PROTOCOLS

 Dear Friends;

 On behalf of the Board, I want to thank you all for your collective efforts over these last two years to keep RHUC a safe place to gather, learn, work and worship. We have done well. As the situation allows we want to adjust our protocols so they continue to keep us safe, with as little disruption as possible. At our June meeting the Board reviewed our situation and approved some changes to the RHUC Covid Protocols, which are now in effect. Here are the changes: 

Proof of Vaccination is no longer required for people using the building.

Contact tracing is suspended for all regular functions on site. This includes Sunday worship services, and regular classes and group activities offered by our tenants. We will continue to record names and contact information for one-time events, such as weddings, because there will be no other way to contact many of those in attendance in the unlikely event of an outbreak.

Mask wearing will still be required, but they may be removed in these situations:

  • When a person is alone at their own work station
  • When eating or drinking, while remaining seated
  • When speaking from the lectern or at the Communion Table in the Sanctuary

 Social distancing is still required, and people should still stay away when they are sick.

 Social events with food and beverages: In the near future we will begin to resume the familiar events people enjoy together, such as coffee time, refreshments for meetings, or pot-luck meals. Safety steps will be taken on these occasions that are appropriate for that specific occasion. These measures (eg: having one designated server instead of all helping themselves, spacing out tables) will be clearly described at the time, so that people may make informed choices about their attendance.

Once again, thank you to all of you for your support and your patience. Please let me know if you have any questions.

 Doug Loweth, Board Chair
