Phased Reopening Guidelines Update
This is a brief update to share ERUUF’s plans for a Phased Reopening of our campus. These June 2021 Guidelines will remain in place until the CDC advises otherwise, and unless new cases of COVID-19 rise and necessitate returning to more restrictive measures of containment.
In general, at ERUUF we always seek to create a culture of respect and care for all. During all remaining phases of reopening, masks will be worn to protect the most vulnerable who are not yet vaccinated
- in worship services
- whenever children are present
- at the discretion of the group during meetings of adults
Beginning July 1, which will give staff time to prepare building space and procedures, ERUUF Groups may meet indoors by making a reservation through the Office. Group leaders will view a very short orientation video and communicate the updated safety rules to the whole group. Group size is limited to 50% capacity in most rooms (admin staff will provide this info). Contact the Office for more information. Food and drink will not be prepared or shared at this time. Adults and children may bring their own hydration and snacks as needed.
In addition, Music Groups with a designated leader may rehearse in the Sanctuary. The Group Leader must view a brief orientation video and communicate updated safety rules to the group. The Group members must wear masks when singing; use the HEPA filter; distance 6’ in all directions. Rehearsals are limited to 75 people in the Sanctuary.
Sunday worship will remain online only in July while our full-time ministers are away. We had previously arranged for a stellar lineup of recorded guest UU preachers from across our religious movement to preach specifically for our congregation; that information will be posted on our website. Summer Worship Leader, Rev. Patty Hanneman, will be here to coordinate and lead Sunday services from our Sanctuary with our Worship Associates, Kate Lewis, and additional recorded music.
