This Delta variant is causing our numbers to go back up, even here in New Jersey where most adults are vaccinated. There are break-through cases even here. There is no data that says vaccinated people can’t transmit the virus (Delta especially) and no kids have the vaccine yet so--
CDC guidance recommends masking again in public places. Highlands Presbytery guidance has never recommended doing away with the masks although they know most of our congregations relaxed the masking requirement weeks ago. I went to ShopRite out where I live yesterday and didn’t see anyone without a mask. People are paying attention. People are caring for each other.
We should too. I know that nobody wants to be the cause of an outbreak. Not even one person!
So, out of care for each other here in Fairmount world—let’s return to masking in church. Please.
We’re still going to be on Facebook Live, we’ll still be Zooming for the Bible study, we’ll still offer Zoom for session, too.
Just trying to do our part to stay vigilant. I’m just as tired of it as you are. Maybe more. I’m a hugger. COVID is killing me!
Pandemic fatigue be damned, we’ve gotta do this. We take care of each other. It’s what we do. Fairmount is a kind, caring, compassionate community. You are.
