Adopted 8/17/22

We seek to be a community that is inclusive, hospitable, and safe for all people. To this end, our Parish Committee has adopted the following COVID safety protocols.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has developed a system of Green, Yellow, and Orange Community Levels based on hospitalization rates, hospital burden, and case rates. We will rely on the CDC’s Level for Plymouth County in adjusting our COVID safety protocols. Leaders of programs that pose special risks because of the vulnerability of participants may adopt stricter rules than those listed below. The Parish Committee President may also impose stricter protocols for the whole Church until the Parish Committee can meet to revise these policies.
