Health and Safety Protocols – Updated 12/18/22

Dear Friends,

The CDC’s COVID metrics place Berkshire County outside the “red zone.” This means that the overall community risk level has fallen below the highest level as measured on the CDC’s three-tier scale.

As a result, you can expect the following changes at worship, beginning Sunday, October 16:

  • Masks are now optional in all areas of the building. Please be considerate of others, and remember that it is always OK to wear a mask at church.
  • Coffee Hour will be available in the Guild Room following the service on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month.

At this time, we will continue to maintain these practices:

  • Non-contact passing of the peace.
  • No wine at communion.
  • Please don’t come to church if you’re not feeling well or have had known exposure to COVID. Join us via live stream. (View the streaming video on our home page.)

Note that a change in local risk levels as determined by the CDC may require parish leadership to revise these health and safety protocols once again.

Please reach out if you have questions or concerns.

May God grant us patience, wisdom, safety, and health.


The Rev. Dr. Nina Ranadive Pooley
