We are pleased to announce that our faith community has resumed in-person worship. The new CDC/NYS COVID guidelines allow fully vaccinated people to resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing. Unvaccinated persons, on the other hand, must continue to wear masks and practice physically distancing to safeguard their health and the health of others. Because Sarah Jane Johnson Memorial United Methodist Church hosts fewer that 250 people, we can employ the “honor system” that relies on self-reporting of vaccination status. Further, according to the CDC/NYS guidelines, fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, including congregational singing. We are encouraging vaccinated people to wear masks as they are comfortable and trusting that those who are not vaccinated will wear their masks at all times while in the church building.
