Effective June 6 – DeBows UMC Church Council has approved an update to its COVID-19 guidelines for indoor worship services, per recently released CDC & NJ State recommendations. These recommendations reflect the progress made in reducing the number of COVID-19 cases, due in large part to the effectiveness of the vaccine rollout.
UPDATE – Wearing a mask and social distancing is now optional for fully vaccinated people. Unvaccinated people should continue to wear masks and maintain social distancing. Also, people are no longer required to pre-register to attend an indoor worship service. With some exceptions, the State of NJ is not requiring proof of vaccination status and is depending on the honor system for guideline compliance. DeBows UMC will also use the honor system.
DeBows will maintain its advanced level of cleaning and sanitizing of the building and continue to offer hand sanitizer and disposable masks upon entry.
After 15 months we are now seeing progress being made. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we celebrate this milestone and look forward to the time when we can lift any remaining restrictions.
