COVID-19

in the Episcopal Church in Delaware

“Lord, guide us and help us through the changes in our life”

May 19, 2021

  • Rectors are now empowered, with your vestry and within your contexts, to make decisions about whether or not to require masks in church buildings, as long as you follow the state of Delaware and CDC guidelines.
  • I recommend a sign be posted stating that fully vaccinated people are not required to wear a mask, and that the CDC strongly recommends that people who have not been vaccinated wear a mask.
  • Maintaining three-feet social distance indoors is strongly encouraged.
  • I am not prepared to allow the chalice or contact during the peace at this time.

The Episcopal Church in Delaware will adhere to the State of Emergency declaration and all modifications of the declaration by the Delaware Governor, John C. Carney. Loving our neighbor, we ask and encourage any organization using facilities within the Episcopal Church in Delaware to also follow said declarations by the governor.
