Effective February 20, 2023

Notification from the COVID/Reopening Committee:
We have found that the COVID pandemic situation is changing constantly and we are aware that people are getting guideline and recommendation fatigue.
1. Our recommendation is to adapt the general CDC COVID pandemic guidelines to stay safe. The guidelines are based on the levels of transmission of the COVID infection in the community. We recognize that keeping up with the transmission levels is difficult, so this is a general rule of thumb: Do I know more than 2 people that caught COVID within the last week? If the answer is yes, you can extrapolate that community transmission is high and use precautions (i.e. wear a mask) to prevent getting exposed to COVID. 
The CDC recommendations for the different levels of community transmission can we found in this web page:

2. If you are in one of the following categories, this recommendation is especially important: unvaccinated, older than 65, weak immune system, chronic medical illness, essential work/job description (i.e. being off work for 7-10 days is not an option).

3. Recommended masking rules also apply to singing and choir for the time being.

4. Continue to abstain from attending in person services if you have recently had COVID (or other transmissible infection) or if you have been exposed to somebody with COVID until cleared by your physician.

5. Notify the UUCC administrator (uucc@uucolumbia.org) if you were diagnosed with COVID infection shortly after attending an event in the UUCC buildings. Names of affected persons will remain confidential.
