Just when we’d all breathed a sigh of relief and started to practice “getting back to normal” public health conditions worsened yet again. At this time the Delta variant is rapidly spreading, causing significantly impactful illness for people who are unvaccinated. There has been some breakthrough virus even among people who are fully vaccinated, though the incidence is statistically small and the impact mostly has been light. Hospitalization rates are also rising rapidly, mainly for those who are unvaccinated.

In an effort to slow the spread of the Delta variant and keep everyone as safe as possible, effective immediately, all people who attend any indoor events (program, class, group, gathering, worship service, etc) at ERUUF must wear a facemask and practice social distancing at all times.

And stay tuned. Due to the fluid nature of how this variant is unfolding, we can expect that more changes to our safety policies will follow.
