A Message Regarding COVID Protocols
January 17, 2023

Dear church family and community groups,

The Re-gathering Team at Woodmont UCC met recently to discuss the  increased COVID-19 hospitalizations and transmission rates, given that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now places New Haven County in the “high” category in its rate of transmission. Additionally, a new COVID-19 variant, known as XBB.1.5, has emerged and appears to be responsible for a large proportion of recent COVID-19 infections across the Northeast.


At this time, and in accordance with the above data, Woodmont UCC is adjusting our COVID-19 protocols in the following ways:

1.  During worship and at other events inside the building, masking is strongly recommended, and required when singing.

2.  Groups should be cognizant of social distancing, which remains an effective way of preventing transmission as well.

3.  Committee meetings should seriously consider meeting virtually if possible.  If in person, we’d ask each committee chair to gauge             the comfort level of the group, and please be prepared to kindly respond to those who are choosing caution, and opt to wear masks.

4. When eating or drinking, we ask that folks consider spreading out as much as possible.

5. We ask outside groups using our space to adhere to the same guidelines as above.

Thank you for your attention to these matters, and to your efforts involved in keeping everyone safe and healthy!

With grace,

Rev. Jill and the Re-gathering Team

P.S. To assist you and your family to establish preventive measures, so that you are ready to take action if you have COVID-19, the CDC provides a helpful guide for building a personal COVID-19 plan.  Please click here for more information.
