    Due to the latest announcement by the CDC, the governor has lifted most remaining COVID-19-related restrictions and he has also ended the indoor mask mandate for those who have been fully vaccinated.

    Throughout this entire pandemic, WEFC has followed the requirements put out by the state of Connecticut.  Given this announcement by the governor, we are making the following adjustments to our protocols.

    1. Remove the mask mandate for public gatherings: We will no longer require masks or social distancing for indoor and outdoor gatherings effective immediately.
    2. We will provide space for social distancing for those who are at risk: We recognize there are still groups of people who are vulnerable to the virus and who still require social distancing. Seating on the outer edges of the sanctuary will accommodate this need. 
    3. We will operate on the honor system when it comes to compliance with the state of Connecticut: The direction from the state applies to those who have been fully vaccinated.

    We are excited to see signs of returning to a more normal way of life.  At the same time, we want to remain sensitive to the various needs and concerns pertaining to this virus.  If you see someone at a church gathering wearing a mask, please be conscious of the need to maintain some social distancing.

    We will continue to adjust along with other announcements that may come out in the future.
