As of the first Sunday of Lent, March 6, we will adjust our policy regarding masking at Saint Anne’s in response to the recommendations from the CDC for areas of low level transmission of the COVID 19 virus. You may choose whether to mask while indoors throughout the campus for all gatherings. If you are more comfortable wearing a mask in public spaces, we will continue to provide masks at the entrances of our buildings.
Since Pentecost 2021, our Bishop asked the parishes throughout the diocese to adhere to CDC guidelines. We have faithfully followed the protocols and now are making the changes currently recommended by public health professionals. We are looking forward to the time when our youngest members are eligible to receive their vaccinations. And we strongly encourage everyone who has not been vaccinated or boosted to consider getting immunized as soon as possible. We will continue to monitor the levels of transmission and positivity and watch for any updates from the CDC.
Thank you for living into the Great Commandment of loving your neighbor as you love yourself. It has been a long two years and I hope this is one more step in returning to “normalcy” in the community. Let us continue to pray that this pandemic will soon come to an end.
