Mask Policy Update
Beginning Easter Sunday, April 17th, masking during in-person worship will become optional.
For some time now the CDC has categorized the covid transmission risk level as ‘low’ in Durham and Orange counties. This has led to the lifting of mask mandates in many public spaces. In an abundance of caution, we’ve continued to require everyone attending Kindred worship to remain masked. However, since risk levels remain low in our area, we are making masks optional beginning on Easter Sunday.
That said, for the protection of the most vulnerable, masking will continue to be required for some volunteers and for all adults serving in our childcare area. And, of course, all attendees who want/need to remain masked during worship should absolutely do so.
Be assured that we’re making this change in consultation with local health officials and in conjunction with our mother church, University UMC. We’ve been committed to responsible covid policies throughout this pandemic and that will not change. If you have questions about this policy change, feel free to reach out to Pastor Daniel, email@example.com.
