What to Expect for
EHUMC's In-Person Worship
Updated June 1, 2021
After review of current attendance numbers, the continued decline in the numbers of cases and hospitalizations, and the improvement in the percent vaccinated, the EHUMC Regathering Team will be implementing the following updates to our in-person worship services:
REGISTRATION will no longer be required to attend our Sunday morning in-person worship service*. We ask you to sign in as you arrive.
SEATING will be arranged in small collections of chairs, please feel free to sit in small groups. We will maintain some spacing between groups and ask for your cooperation in maintaining this spacing.
MASKS are still required while inside the building, and we will continue to keep you informed of new updates as these become available.
As always the Regathering Team appreciates your suggestions and your cooperation.
(*) Registration is still required for catered receptions following worship.
ENTERING THE BUILDING
You will be able to access the building via the Education Wing lobby/port cochere. Other doors to the building will be locked to ensure that everyone worshipping in the Family Life Center has been checked in.
PERSONAL HEALTH & SCREENING
All attendees MUST complete COVID screening & temperature check at check-in to confirm that in the last 14 days, they have no COVID symptoms (see below), are not awaiting a COVID-19 test result, and have not been in contact with any confirmed COVID-19 positive patients.
If you think you may have COVID, know you’ve been exposed to someone who has COVID in the last 10-14 days, yourself tested positive for COVID within 2 weeks, or are not feeling well, please stay home. Please review the symptoms of COVID below if you have any questions:
Cough, shortness of breath, diﬃculty breathing
Fever of chills (fever of 100.4 or more)
Muscle or body aches
Vomiting or diarrhea
New loss of taste or smell
If you always have a cough or aches, then you are looking for a new worsening of those symptoms!
What if I was exposed to COVID-19?
If you KNOW someone was diagnosed with COVID-19 and BOTH of the below are true:
You were with that person 2 days BEFORE their symptom onset (and/or two days before their positive test), and BEFORE they met the criteria to leave isolation
AND you were within 6 feet of that person for a total of 15 minutes or more
If BOTH are true, the CDC considers you as "exposed to COVID-19. Stay home and "quarantine" until you meet the criteria to stop quarantine.
If I was exposed, when can I stop quarantine?
If you have a negative test 5 days after exposure, you can stop quarantine 7 days after exposure
If you have no symptoms of COVID 10 days after the exposure, you may leave quarantine the next day (day 11)
