COVID-19 Update

It's been a long journey, but we're grateful to return toward normalcy.

Here's the summary of our updated COVID-19 guidelines:

  • Beginning on August 8th, we are asking that all people who enter our facility wear a mask.
  • All indoor food and beverage restrictions are lifted, though we ask that prepackaged food be served where possible. 
  • We are asking that you practice social distancing while inside the Meetinghouse and in the Commons.
  • Masks are required in all parts of the building past the Great Hall when children are present.

We understand that some of our younger congregants have not had the vaccine made available to them yet. We will continue to offer experiences where everyone can feel welcome and comfortable. On Sunday mornings, we will have the west floor spaces roped off for families or those not fully vaccinated. And through it all, we are committed to keeping our guidelines in step with emerging trends and will update them accordingly. 

Got questions? We've got a few answers. 

COVID-19 Gathering FAQs

Will you still do virtual worship services?
Absolutely. We know everybody's in a different place with the current COVID-19 landscape, so throughout the summer we will continue to live-stream the Traditional worship service at 9:30am on our YouTube channel.
I'm an external group. Can I book Colonial's space now?
Yes, though we're taking it slow here. To find out more, contact Julie Dover to learn more about our protocols and to reserve space inside or outside the building.
When will things get back to "normal"?
That's the question everybody's asking, and we're no different. We're committed to ongoing conversations with lay leadership, and we're always seeking the good of our neighbor, no matter how imperfect that looks sometimes. But rest assured: we're watching the vaccine rollout and COVID landscape closely, and we'll be ready to update again when the moment calls for it.
