Updated Guidelines from Healthy Pathways Task Force September 2021

Posted on

Dear Covenant Family,

In the midst of the high spread of the Covid-19 Delta Variant, Covenant Church remains committed to keeping one another safe and remaining open for worship and ministry when possible.

The 8:30 worship service will remain outside, weather permitting, and masks are optional. As of 8/25/2021, the 11:00 worship will be held indoors with masks strongly recommended for both vaccinated and unvaccinated people because Chester County is in the substantial transmission category

Our strategies to protect one another from this disease will adjust based on the data from https://www.chesco.org/4497/Coronavirus-COVID-19-Maps-and-Data. When the infection rates become more severe, our mask guidelines will immediately change to be more protective. When infection rates become less severe, our mask guidelines will become less severe after two weeks of data at the lower infection rate. The following chart illustrates our guidelines:

Again we thank everyone for adhering to these guidelines. The evidence available tells us that vaccinated people can still spread Covid-19 under certain circumstances, so these guidelines help us to protect our unvaccinated children and the immunocompromised who are not fully protected by a vaccine.
We are carefully monitoring the community’s ability to respond to increasing infection rates.  Our mask decisions are based on the infection rates reported on the Chesco.org website for the preceding week. 

Due to the recent increase in cases, we will not yet resume childcare in the nursery during worship. Families of infants may remain in the sanctuary or view the service on the nursery monitor.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to Contact Pastor Alex ( ) or Pastor Emily ( ).
