Based on the latest recommendation from the CDC, and Lehigh County’s status as “medium risk” based on CDC metrics, Asbury’s Church Council has approved the church to move to a mask-optional phase effective Sunday, March 6.
This mask-optional phase puts the following changes info effect:
- Masks are optional for worship and for all activities* regardless of vaccination status. We encourage you to make the choice most comfortable for you, your family, and/or your meeting group.
- A section for socially distanced seating will be available in worship services.
- Group leaders are encouraged to decide what is best for their group, taking into consideration the unique composition of the group attendees. Leaders may opt for a mask-optional group, a fully masked group, or a group that meets virtually.
*PLEASE NOTE: because masking in non-worship settings is at the discretion of group/meeting leaders, you may still be required to wear a mask to participate in particular groups/meetings. Please check with your group leader to see what your group’s policy is.
Church Council’s next meeting is on Wednesday, March 9, and will discuss additional updates to the COVID policy.
Thank you for your continued patience as we navigate the ongoing pandemic.
