Safe Gathering Guidance

We continue to meet regularly and monitor conditions from several government and medical sources, particularly:  https://covidactnow.org/us/massachusetts-ma/county/middlesex_county/?s=35532340

We believe that the high vaccination rate of our members and community and use of the following precautions minimize the risk of viral spread sufficiently.  Each individual and family will need to decide if they are ready to worship in person. 

Because the risk level in the Merrimack Valley is now at a LOW level, we modified our mask policy in response to this designation.  Because we have little to no ventilation and we like to sing - masks are strongly recommended at Trinity.  To promote an environment that accommodates varying comfort levels, we continue to designate the front left pews for those who prefer to remain physically distanced and in this section of the sanctuary, masks will remain required.


Here’s what we’re doing to keep one another safe:

  1. Vaccination. This is the most important way we can keep one another safe. If you are eligible for vaccination and/or booster and haven’t received it yet, we encourage you to do so.
  2. Masking. Everyone is strongly encouraged to wear a mask indoors.  In the front left section of the sanctuary, physically distanced seating is designated, and in this section, masks are required.
  3. Testing. We encourage everyone to be tested for COVID-19 if you have any symptoms or have been exposed to someone with COVID.
  4. Ventilation. Fresh air helps mitigate the transmission the transmission of Covid.  We will crack open at least two doors during worship and use the ceiling fans to circulate the air. Please dress appropriately.
  5. Communion. For now, we will continue to commune using prepackaged communion kits.
  6. Worship at home when sick. If you feel sick in any way, we request that you worship from home via Livestream.
  7. Virtual Coffee hour. There is no in-person coffee hour currently.  Those who desire to share fellowship time may do so outside in the fresh air without provided food or beverages. Our virtual Zoom coffee hour continues.
  8. Physical Distance. Designated seating areas are marked in the front left of the sanctuary for those who prefer to continue physical distancing.  Masks are required in this section of the sanctuary.  The remainder of the sanctuary is available for open seating.

As conditions change, our precautions may change accordingly.   At Trinity, we care about each other - so you are always welcome to wear a mask to protect others and yourself.

Please feel free to contact any of our Safe Gatherings Team members if you have any questions or comments: Kate Conran, Tony Bogyo, Pauline Ray, René Minalga-Rheault, Dina Morrison, Pastor Erica Kennedy
