Building Use COVID Guidelines (as of 4/21/22):
Our building is now open for external group use and we will re-evaluate these guidelines over time, monitoring public health information.
We expect anyone using our space to follow state guidelines for COVID, with the following additions:
- Mask wearing required during First Parish events.
- Eating and drinking indoors is based on risk rate. If mask wearing is required “except for eating and drinking”, please remove the mask only briefly to eat or drink.
- Capacity is based on risk rate.
- Everyone must communicate clearly with First Parish if anyone in your group tests positive for COVID.
