It has been a rich blessing to be able to worship together in-person this fall, and desire to continue to do so in the new year, while continuing to provide an online streaming option for those at home or outside the area. We are cognizant of the fact that many individuals are traveling over the holidays, interacting with wider groups of individuals outside their immediate households, and spending more time indoors. Further, the Washington, DC public health authorities and the CDC continue to strongly encourage the wearing of masks indoors to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and the emerging variants.  

As such, out of our continued desire to care for and protect all of those in our community, including those who are immunocompromised, ineligible for vaccination, or otherwise at higher risk, we will continue to follow our existing procedures and protocols so that we do not put community members at unnecessary risk.  These protocols include mandatory wearing of face masks for all individuals over the age of 2 while in the WCF building (except for those directly speaking at a microphone).  Red and Yellow wristbands will be available for those individuals who desire more space and social distancing.  We also want to remind everyone, as during a normal cold and flu season, to stay home if you are feeling sick, in addition to if you have recently been exposed to someone with COVID-19. 

Please contact Rebecca Hunt, Deacon for Worship, with any questions, and review our complete Community Principles and Reopening Guidelines at this LINK.
