The CDC has issued the following guidance: “To reduce their risk of becoming infected with the Delta variant and potentially spreading it to others, CDC recommends that fully vaccinated people wear a mask in public indoor settings if they are in an area of substantial or high transmission.”
As a result, our parish will be following the protocols/guidance below :
All Ministers of Communion at St. Charles are required to wear a mask when serving;
Everyone is encouraged to wear a mask while indoors at Church, including the vaccinated;
Per NYS, “Unvaccinated individuals continue to be responsible for wearing masks, in accordance with federal CDC guidance.” Therefore, masks and six feet distance are still required for unvaccinated individuals at Mass. Many of our ministries are returning and growing with new parish volunteers. Please think about how you might want to use your talents and gifts in service of the Lord, one another and those most in need.
St. Charles Borromeo, pray for us! #WeAreTheChurch
