COVID-19 UPDATE – SEPT. 8, 2021

The church is excited to offer in-person worship and other activites this fall!

As the Kent County Health Department (KCHD) issues a strong warning about the increased cases of COVID-19 and the urgent need for more people to become vaccinated and wear masks, Mayflower will follow the lead of area schools for guidance to our COVID-19 mitigation efforts/procedures in effect for the start of the 2021-2022 school year.

  • Masking is strongly recommended for all individuals when indoors.*

  • Masking is required for all students in grades PK-6 and unvaccinated people while indoors.*

*Exemptions: medical, mental health, or fully-vaccinated status
  • Physical distancing is highly encouraged as we continue to maintain 3’ of separation whenever possible while attending gatherings, meetings, events.

  • Mayflower will continue to provide hand sanitizer throughout the church building. Everyone will be encouraged to sanitize/wash their hands regularly, practice good hygiene, and cover coughs and sneezes in order to further reduce any possible spread of COVID-19.

  • Mayflower encourages all members, youth, and staff to stay home when sick or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Individuals should get tested for COVID-19 when experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or if they are a “close contact.”

  • Attendance will be taken for contact tracing whenever possible. Sunday worship fellowship register will be recorded weekly.

  • All those participating in Mayflower activities do so at their own risk and on the honor system.
    This policy may be revisited regularly considering changing rules from the CDC, our schools, and other authorities.

We look forward to you as we welcome everyone back inside the church with care and respect.

All in-person events are tentative as CDC/MDHHS permit until further notice during the COVID-19 crisis with updates posted on Facebook.
If you, or a family member, have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19,
or you exhibit any of the symptoms associated, or have recently tested positive for COVID-19,
please refrain from attending any Mayflower event until you have been through the proper time of quarantine.
