COVID-19 Policy for Asheville Friends Meeting

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

 

LOW When the CDC COVID-19 Community Level is low we will meet indoors for Meeting for Worship and first day school with masking optional. Snacks will be served and may be eaten indoors.

MEDIUM When the CDC COVID-19 Community Level is medium we will meet indoors for Meeting for Worship and first day school. Masking will be mandatory for meeting for worship, but as long as children are not required to mask in school, masking will be optional for first day school*. Everyone must wear a mask when downstairs. Snacks will be served indoors, but must be eaten outdoors.

HIGH When the CDC COVID-19 Community Level is high we will continue to meet indoors for Meeting for Worship and first day school. Masking will be mandatory for Meeting for Worship, but as long as children are not required to mask in school, masking will be optional for first day school*. Everyone must wear a mask when downstairs. Snacks will be served indoors, but must be eaten outdoors.

Masks are available upon request. A limited number of N-95 masks are available for those who need one.

COVID vaccination is not required for participation in Meeting for Worship or first day school, but it is encouraged. We ask that people not attend in person, if they have COVID 19 or do not feel well. Meeting for worship is available on Zoom during all COVID-19 Community Levels.

* Children are not required to wear masks in school, so their parents asked that we make mask-wearing optional during First Day School at all COVID levels.
