Zoom and Outdoor still encouraged . . .

  1. Groups of any size are encouraged to meet via Zoom and/or outdoors.
  2. Group leaders are encouraged to consider hybrid meetings where necessary, with some in-person attendance while others attend via Zoom. A Facebook Portal device is available to make participation possible for both in-person and online attendance. (Please contact Dr. Rich to set up the Portal for your hybrid meeting).

Group Leaders must . . .

  1. Open exterior windows as appropriate (contact Jacob with questions).
  2. Clean / disinfect touchpoints after the meeting with HALT.  Spray meeting room tables and doorknobs.  If restrooms have been used then spray HALT on faucets, handles, and doors.
  3. Contact Debbie for arranging cleaning instructions by the Re-Gathering Team.
  4. Maintain weekly attendance list for the duration of our COVID precaution efforts.
  5. Most importantly reinforce to those attending indoor gatherings:
    • If meeting in the Narthex – bring your own chair.
    • With the recent surge in the delta variant, we are following CDC guidance to strongly recommend wearing masks indoors (for those 4 years and older) regardless of vaccination status as long as the community remains an area of substantial or high community transmission.  In addition, staff and volunteers who work indoors with children (under age 12) in programs and functions at Unity Presbyterian are required to wear masks when children are present.
    • Attendees are encouraged to maintain social distancing,
    • Do not use the water fountains.
    • Bring your hand sanitizer for personal use.
    • Wash your hands.
