Dear Plymouth Family,
As we continue to assess our public gatherings at Plymouth with an eye toward being responsibly open during a pandemic, we want to share the following:
- We strongly encourage all eligible individuals participating in on-site activities and worship services at Plymouth to be fully vaccinated and boosted. We acknowledge that risks remain, and our decision to remain open is premised on strong mitigation protocols and the expectation of all participants being fully vaccinated. For those who don’t fit this criterion, we kindly request that you participate in the life of Plymouth via our live-streaming and online options.
- Masks remain a requirement for all Plymouth gatherings and events. We suggest switching to KN95 or K95 masks whenever possible. Surgical masks are second best for protection and prevention of virus transmission. Current data suggests cloth masks are much less effective against the COVID-19 virus and its Omicron variant.
- Plymouth is continuing air ventilation protocols, and we encourage you to be mindful of social distancing. Again, please remember that your neighbor’s comfort levels might be different from your threshold.
- Let’s all do our part to be responsible with testing and appropriate isolation in the face of direct exposure and Covid-related symptoms. Please note that free COVID-19 tests kits are available to every private residence by completing the simple form located at https://special.usps.com/testkits.
- All Plymouth board, committee, council, and group meetings should take place via online conferencing through the end of February.
Thank you for complying with these recommendations during this season in our lives. We look forward to when we can be together without mitigations and qualifications. Let’s all remember that we will eventually see one another’s faces and be able to embrace without trepidation. For now, our holiness is still being made known through our hospitable actions of care and concern for our friends and neighbors.
With gratitude — and resilient hope for our shared future,
Rev. Dr. Jared Wortman, Senior Pastor
Dr. Rocky Morton, Chair of Health and Safety Task Force
