It is exciting to hear that the CDC has now stated that fully vaccinated people do not need to wear masks in certain settings. However, for the time being, Friedens will continue to require masks for all attendees in worship, whether indoors or outdoors. This is for 2 reasons:
1) There are several members of our community who have not gotten vaccinated yet (including children). We do not require those seeking to worship with us to produce a vaccination card. We are committed to keeping worship open and safe for all.
2) There are several cases of people contracting one of the many strains of the coronavirus after having been vaccinated. Wearing masks dramatically reduces the chance of infection. Especially since worship is a wonderful mix of households and ages coming together, it is important to stay careful.
Thank you for your kind understanding.
