If you have been paying attention to the CDC’s map tracking coronavirus, you will see that pretty much the whole country has a high transmission rate. Locally, communities are testing positive at more than 20% for the newest variant, BA5. In order to keep our community safe, I’m requiring everyone coming to our service to wear a face mask covering your mouth, nose and chin. We have masks available at the doors, but I would encourage you to bring your own N95 or KN95. BA5 is very transmissible, and prior infection will not guarantee that you won’t be infected again.
