St. Matthias no longer requests that everyone wear masks due to local improvement in COVID19 rates and information from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. We are dropping our recent mask request, but we are open to those who choose to mask for any reason.
St. Matthias UMC recommends everyone follow current CDC guidance related to masking and other precautions. Currently, our community is at a Medium level of concern, as found at CDC.gov. They recommend:
· If you are at high risk for severe illness, talk to your healthcare provider about whether you need to wear a mask and take other precautions
· Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines
· Get tested if you have symptoms and follow isolation and quarantine instructions.
· People may choose to mask at any time. The CDC recommends that people with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask.

The church will use sanitation and ventilation measures as necessary.
