ST. BARTHOLOMEW'S UNITED CHURCH(ELCA)

Stop by Sunday morning and develop your relationship with God. 

Following the NEW CDC guidelines

FULLY VACCINATED PERSONS- NO LONGER REQUIRE THE WEARING OF MASKS.

UNVACCINATED PERSONS –CONTINUES TO REQUIRE THE WEARING OF MASKS.

WE WILL CONTINUE TO SOCIAL DISTANCE.

Please feel comfortable with your decision.

 

NEW NATIONAL GUIDELINES

 From the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 05/13/2021

FULLY VACCINATED people in Pennsylvania, except for Philadelphia, will no longer have to wear masks in most places. 

If you are fully vaccinated you can resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic.

FULLY VACCINATED people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.

Department of Health Acting Secretary Alison Beam announced Thursday the CDC’s guidelines will go into effect immediately for Pennsylvania.

In a major step toward returning to pre-pandemic life, the CDC eased mask-wearing guidance for fully vaccinated people on Thursday, 05/13/2021 allowing them to stop wearing masks outdoors in crowds and in most indoor settings.

 

The guidance still calls for wearing masks in crowded indoor settings like buses, planes, hospitals, prisons and homeless shelters, but it will help clear the way for reopening workplaces, schools, and other venues — even removing the need for social distancing for those who are fully vaccinated.

 

UNVACCINATED PEOPLE will still be required to wear masks until 70 percent of                                                       Pennsylvanians 18 and older are fully vaccinated.
