From the First Parish Covid Team: Updated First Parish Health Precautions 

January 22, 2024

Given the post-holiday increase in Covid and other illnesses, including flu and RSV, we strongly recommend that congregants wear masks in worship services during the coming weeks. We will continue our practice of enhancing ventilation in the Sanctuary and monitoring CO2 levels during services.

For your own health and that of the wider community we urge everyone to be up to date on Covid, RSV and flu vaccinations. If you are exposed to Covid or if you test positive, please follow CDC recommendations for isolation and masking. 

Please stay home when you are sick. If you have been traveling or in a situation where you were at high risk for Covid exposure, consider masking in groups for five days after you return. This would be for the benefit of the entire community.

The First Parish Covid team will continue to meet regularly.

Please let us know of any concerns. Thank you for your care for one another.
