Wearing of masks is recommended and encouraged for all vaccinated individuals. The guideline for unvaccinated individuals remains the same – masks are required.

Our recommendation for wearing masks is consistent with guidelines from the UMC Virginia Conference, Gov.Northam and the CDC. We continue to monitor local conditions, as well as changes in conference and public policy, and to make changes in our plan as appropriate.
