Renewed Emphasis on Masking
Washington State guidelines are changing. With the rise of the Delta variant and upward trending infections, Governor Inslee had announced a return to indoor masking requirements. Masks are mandated inside public buildings beginning Monday, August 23, for vaccinated and unvaccinated people, with the usual exceptions for children under 2 years and certain medical conditions. We are asking everyone attending worship beginning this Sunday, August 22nd to wear a mask. If you forget yours, we always have plenty of extras around, and if you don't see one just ask!
As a reminder, our general practice, established in the beginning of the pandemic, is to use both the CDC recommendations and the King County and Washington State guidelines, whichever is more conservative, as a guide in making decisions for our congregation and for St. Andrew building users.
