First Unitarian Universalist Church of Houston – Covid-19 Protocol Update
Threat Level Change_yellow

Protocol Updated June 28, 2022

The current Harris County COVID Alert Level is Level 3/Yellow: "Level 3 signifies a moderate, but controlled level of COVID-19 in Harris County, meaning a further demonstrated reduction in transmission and the local healthcare system is within capacity. Unvaccinated individuals should continue to mask and physically distance. Fully vaccinated individuals should mask or physically distance where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance."

After seeing a local increase in cases connected to members and friends of First Church, we are reinstating our previous mask-wearing requirement. All members and visitors to First Church must wear a mask while inside the building, including the sanctuary, Channing Hall, the Fireside Room, and other gathering areas. At this time, we are still serving refreshments after each service. We encourage you to enjoy your refreshment in the courtyard, when possible.

We still encourage the following:

1. If you are ill or might be ill, please stay home
2. Do not shake hands
3. Do not hug without clear permission
4. Try not to get to close to others when you are speaking to them
5. Wash your hands frequently, especially the fingers and palms

We will also continue to offer both in-person and online programs and worship services. We would like you to be able to participate in our community in whatever manner feels most comfortable to you.
