UUCL Covid Policy revised 12/13/2022

The goal of the UUCL Covid Policy is to create safe places for all while balancing needs for
social interaction. Congregants and attendees are encouraged to make smart decisions about
their own health.

  1. Up to date vaccinations are encouraged for anyone who is eligible.
  2. Well-fitted masks are required in the building for everyone ages 2 & up in large group
    settings and church-business events (Worship services, Town Hall meetings,
    Congregational Meetings, Faith Development classes). The exception is when eating or
  3. Small groups and committees of 10 or less can covenant to wear or not wear masks.
  4. Room capacity guidelines with masking is as follows:

Sanctuary including Women’s Memorial Room = 120

Women’s Memorial Room only = 20

Founders = 70

Emerson = 40

Classrooms (201/202/203) = 25/18/18

  1. Streaming of Sunday services may be made available in Founders and/or Emerson
  2. Services will continue to be made available on Zoom.
  3. Worship leaders may remove their masks when on the chancel.
  4. Choir will continue to mask during services.
  5. When coffee hour and socializing is held outside, masks are not required. When coffee
    hour and socializing is held inside in small groups of 10 or less, masks are optional and
    parental choice.
  6. For special events inside the building and not in the sanctuary, masks are
    recommended, but not required by the church. Special Event coordinators are asked to
    complete a series of Covid-related masking questions when reserving a room through
    the website. Each request will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the Covid Task
    Force. Waiver requests should be presented to the BOT for a special event to be held in
    the sanctuary without masks.
  7. Anyone who feels sick or has symptoms of Covid is asked to stay home and watch
    services on Zoom.
  8. This policy will be reviewed either at the end of February 2023 or if an increase in local
    Covid cases make a policy review necessary.
