REOPENING PLANS UPDATE
UUFC is Moving in Phase Three of Re-Entry on Sunday, November 14, 2021.
On Sunday, October 31st, the Board of Trustees voted to enter Phase Three Re-entry on November 14, 2021. We will be able to gather for in person, indoor services held in the sanctuary, with a minimum three feet distance between household groups and masks required.
Overflow seating will be available in the social room.
What does this mean for religious education at UUFC? Through the remainder of the calendar year, we ask that children and youth who attend in person services remain with their family groups. We will continue to provide the Peaceful Play space in the sanctuary and another such space will be available in the social room. Our target date to resume RE classroom activities is January 16, 2022. This will allow us to recruit, train and background check RE volunteers, complete the revitalization of our physical spaces, and, most importantly, allow time for more children ages 5-11 to be fully vaccinated. Please note that the nursery will not be staffed during this time. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate the next few months. Our children and youth are a precious part of our beloved community and we look forward to being able to gather safely together once again.
How long will we wear masks? We are thrilled that as of this week children 5-11 years old have vaccines available to them. We will continue to wear masks at UUFC during the next two months while shots are administered and the weeks following the winter holidays pass. The Board of Trustees will reconvene after the new year to look at the COVID numbers and the CDC recommendations before deciding on how to navigate the decisions about wearing masks indoors.
We are thrilled to be coming back together indoors soon!
