COVID GUIDELINES AT ALDERSGATE
As the surge in COVID cases from the omicron variant begin to subside, we are still waiting to see what adjustments to make based on recommendations from the CDC and the Indiana Department of Health. COVID is now in retreat but unlikely to disappear. The difference at this point is that we have learned how to coexist with the pandemic. By now we should all be aware of the risk factors and our personal tolerance of them. We now feel it is prudent to no longer require masks for those entering the Aldersgate building.
Wearing a mask is a matter of personal preference. Masks are helpful in preventing the spread of disease. They provide some protection to the wearer and to those around them.
However, personal preference can have an impact on others. This is why it is important to be mindful of your own health. If you are not feeling well, please stay home until you are healthy. If you feel well, but know that you have been exposed to someone who has COVID it is recommended that you wear a mask for 10 days as a courtesy to others.
Over the past two years, we have adjusted and adapted to the situation as it changes. We will continue to do so based on the recommendation of health officials and the needs of our congregation.
I cannot thank you enough for your patience and cooperation over the two years. In that time many have been ill and we have lost a few of our beloved members, but thanks to all of you doing your part I do not believe we have been a source of transmission.
The exception to these guidelines is the Aldersgate Academy, which has separate state guidelines they are required to follow including the wearing of masks by anyone over the age of 5.
