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

Protocol Updated April 12, 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 well 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."

In consultation with our church’s Health Advisory Group of health professionals, we are pleased to make mask wearing in the sanctuary optional. We encourage you to continue to wear your mask if you are more comfortable doing so. We will also resume serving food in Channing Hall at the beginning of May and hope to return to serving lunch in the near future.

In addition, we 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 continue to monitor the situation. If another surge of hospitalizations occurs, or appears imminent, we will resume required mask wearing.

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.

Senior Minister, First Unitarian Universalist Church of Houston
