COVID-19 Mask Policy
St. Paul's Lutheran Church

Dear members of St. Paul’s,

If you have been following the news, you know that Covid is on a steep rise again nationwide.  Maryland just released data covering the last two weeks, which is the first time the state has released data since they experienced a cyber security breech on December 3.  Since December 3rd, the state test positivity rate has more than doubled to over 10%, and Marylanders have experienced over 28,000 new cases of Covid. That equates to a daily case rate per 100,000 people of over 30.  No county level data is available yet.

 

With this data in mind, St. Paul’s will once again require masks in the building at all times, regardless of vaccination status.  This mask policy goes into effect on Wednesday, December 22, and applies to all groups who use the church.
