Session Updates COVID Policy

The Derry Township community is now in an area of high COVID spread and transmission. In response, our COVID Task Force met on Zoom recently to consider changes to our current policy and submit its report to Session. At its Aug 18 meeting, Session approved the following task force recommendations:

  • In keeping with CDC guidelines, require masks for ALL indoor gatherings, including worship services
  • Continue choral and congregational singing with masks and social distancing
  • Continue mask requirements for all children’s events (under age 12) 
  • Recommend mask use for outdoor gatherings

When our region returns to moderate or low community spread, the task force and Session will make changes in keeping with lower transmission rates.
