New COVID policy and reopening plan

COVID policy and reopening plan effective May 1, 2022

UUCNC’s Executive Board has updated the COVID Policy and Reopening Plan, effective May 1. It will be in effect at least through the end of May and is intended to run through the end of the current church year in June. Please note, however, that this plan is subject to change if changing conditions warrant, based on UUA and CDC guidance and data reported at covidactnow.org.

Starting May 1, we will worship in person at the UUCNC meetinghouse (222 Temple St., Fredonia), with a Zoom option offered for those who are unable to attend in person or are more comfortable attending virtually.  Small groups may also gather in the meetinghouse, as long as a Zoom option is also provided and other provisions of the new policy/plan are met, including these:

  • Being “fully vaccinated” and boosted is strongly encouraged but is not mandatory.
  • For all phases of reopening for in-person gatherings, a way for people to participate virtually must be provided.
  • If you have recently tested positive, are not feeling well, or think you may have been recently exposed to the virus, you should contact your health care provider and attend virtually and not in person.
  • Social distancing is encouraged in the building. Please ask permission before shaking hands or hugging other people.
