Pandemic response update

Dear friends,

We have all watched the continued spread of the Delta variant throughout the world and in our own Nation. This threat has been increasing for all of us, particularly the unvaccinated and the immunocompromised. Our location in the midst of resorts and vacationers from out-of-state makes us particularly vulnerable. Yesterday, the CDC issued new guidelines about gathering of large crowds inside buildings. Given all of this, beginning this weekend, we will return to mask wearing for ALL worshippers and at all services, regardless of vaccination status. I know that some will be disappointed by this decision and others will be reassured. Please know that the Vestry and I will continue to monitor the situation closely and follow the best advice available from science and medicine. Please continue to pray for all those who are infected and those who put themselves at risk to help care for the sick. I know it has been hard on all of us, but I know we will continue to do our best to support and love each other through these daunting times.
