According to The Center for Disease Control, “close contact” is defined as “someone who was less than 6 feet away from an infected person (laboratory-confirmed or a clinical diagnosis) for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period. For example, three individual 5-minute exposures for a total of 15 minutes.”
As a result, the CDC recommends the following:
If you’ve been fully vaccinated,
If you are NOT fully vaccinated and aged 2 or older, you should wear a mask in indoor public places.
Currently we are not requiring masks, some people are choosing to continue to wear mask.
Any person that tests positive for COVID-19 should contact the church office to begin the contract tracing process.
· Please inform the office staff within 24 hours of your positive test and of those who you were in close contact with during your time in the building. Your name will not be shared with other parishioners.
Office staff will then communicate the exposure to those at risk and in close contact with the individual.
