COVID Guidance & Protocols for St. George Updated- effective Dec 28th - 12/27/2021

 

UPDATE FROM DECEMBER 28th: 

As of December 28th:

The confirmed COVID-19 positivity cases in CT have continue to explode since the mid-December. Positivity cases are up 148% in Fairfield County over the past 2 weeks, and the State of Connecticut now has the highest rate of cases since it began tracking. The positivity rate for Connecticut stands at 14.98% as of Tues, Dec 28th.
 
The Parish Council met on Tuesday, December 28th.  They modified the guidelines to attend services as follows:
 
-  Masks are required to be worn when attending all services.

- Temperature checks will be taken before entering the church   

- Coffee Hours after Divine Liturgy continue to be suspended - The Parish Council continues to monitor the COVID positivity rate in Fairfield County and Connecticut.

 

 

UPDATE FROM SEPTEMBER 14th:

As of September 14th:
The confirmed COVID-19 cases in CT have continued to grow weekly since the August 18th CDC “high transmission” rating.
 
The Parish Council met on Tuesday, September 14th.  They continue to reiterate the guidelines currently in place:
 
-      Masks are strongly recommended to be worn when attending all services.  
-      The Parish Council has decided to suspend coffee hours as part of this guidance.
 
 
 
On August 18, 2021:
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) placed Fairfield County in the “High Transmission” category of COVID-19 …. With the ongoing rapid increase in cases of COVID-19 in the state over the last 14 days due to the spread of the Delta variant, the Connecticut Department of Public Health strongly recommends that ALL CONNECTICUT residents over age two years, whether vaccinated or unvaccinated, return to wearing masks when in indoor public spaces.

 

 

ORIGINAL AUGUST 5th UPDATE:

The Parish Council has updated the COVID guidance and protocols for our church based on recent guidance from Connecticut’s Department of Health. 

On Tuesday, August 3rd, Connecticut’s Department of Health came out with guidance strongly recommending that anyone over the age of 2 wear a mask indoors regardless of their vaccination status.  This is because in CT, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations have risen rapidly over the last two weeks due to the spread of the Delta variant. In a continued goal of prioritizing the health and safety of all attending services at St. George, the Parish Council has agreed to follow this new CT health advisory. 

Beginning Sunday, August 8th:
-      Masks are strongly recommended to be worn when attending all services. 
-      Additionally, the Parish Council has decided to suspend coffee hours as part of this guidance.

Although unfortunate, these decisions were made to reduce the risk as much as possible of spreading the Delta variant.

 

As a friendly reminder:
 
Parishioners are no longer required to have their temperature taken before entering church. If parishioners are ill or develop COVID symptoms (fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, etc.) they are strongly encouraged to remain home.

Attendance is no longer being restricted by headcount.  However individual parishioners/family groups need to continue to maintain a social distance spacing of 6 ft.  
 


Thank you for your continued cooperation and compliance as we continue to make adjustments that reflect the current conditions and the safety of our community.
