As recommended by the CDC and NC DHHS, in anticipation of an expected post-holiday surge of the covid-19 omicron variant, effective December 25, 2021, ERUUF programs for children and adults will move online or outdoors only. Masks must be worn, and social distancing and handwashing practiced. If you feel ill with covid symptoms please stay home (and only go out to get tested).
- On December 24, the 4:00 pm Christmas Eve service will be outside; all are welcome.
- The 7:00 pm service will be by reservation, and also will be live-streamed. We will sing outdoors with masks and social distancing. We strongly recommend that only vaccinated people make a reservation for this service.
- The December 26 service was previously recorded and will be by live stream only.
- Beginning January 2, Sunday services will continue at 10:45 am, online only, members not in attendance. The service will be produced by a very small worship team from ERUUF's Sanctuary. Masks, distancing, and handwashing continue in effect. Classes and groups will continue online or outside (at the choice of the group/leaders). We'll let everyone know immediately if safety requires moving to online only.
We will continue to monitor local pandemic conditions and will keep these restrictions, or increase them at ERUUF as long as they're needed. And we'll relax them as soon as it's safely possible. As always we urge everyone to follow CDC and NCDHHS guidance: get vaccinated and if you're eligible also get a booster shot. It's not too late for any of these measures; all offer good protection against the worst effects of the virus and its variants.
