It has come to our attention that someone who attended the Christmas Eve Compline Service on Friday, December 24th, and the Divine Liturgy on Sunday, December 26th, tested positive for COVID on Sunday, December 26th using a home testing kit. The Parish Council has contacted attendees individually who were deemed as being in close proximity, and are informing the parish community at large by this announcement.
The Council met on Tues, Dec 28th to review this situation along with the current conditions in Connecticut and Fairfield County with respect to COVID. 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 has decided we will return to requiring mask wearing at services and conduct temperature checks upon entry into the church.
We will continue to adjust and adapt our policies as circumstances change.
We thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we strive to keep each other healthy and safe.
