Delta Variant Considerations for Congregational Regathering Teams

Bishop Jennifer recommends that congregational regathering teams continue to meet regularly, monitor local conditions, and make changes when necessary.  As the Delta variant takes hold, the bishop’s staff encourages regathering teams to consider:

  • Wearing indoor masks regardless of vaccination status
  • Taking a congregational singing hiatus
  • Taking a choral singing hiatus
  • Using a single cantor or soloist who is physically distanced from the congregation
  • Providing robust online worship opportunities
  • Maintaining social distances when in person
  • Gathering outside whenever possible

Canons Kristin White and Brendan O’Sullivan-Hale and Transition Minister Jen Phelps continue to be resources for regathering teams.
