Dear Friends,

I have unfortunate news. We have a positive Covid case on our UUCW staff. The symptoms started late Wednesday and the case was confirmed today. Our Roc-19 Team has advised that all who were exposed need to quarantine and isolate for three days and after that should get tested. We have alerted all who were exposed.

According to Dr. John Meurer, from our Roc-19 team, those in potential contact with including two days before our staff person was symptomatic need to quarantine. Contact is defined as a total of 15 minutes or more over 24 hours.

John reminds us: Testing at a clinic, public health facility, or drug store test is more reliable than a home test.

Sunday Service will be ONLINE ONLY. Join us for Pathetic Spiritual Practice and my son will join me and share some ways to fill your spiritual cup. See you in person in one week – my birthday even, March 13, 2022.

I know we are all sad to wait one more week until we are together again. We will be canceling our workdays for tonight and Saturday. With staff being backups for one another, continuing on would mean, we risk exposing even more of the tiny staff team. We do not have enough people who have not been exposed to be live on Sunday.

I know you join me, in sending kind healing thoughts to all impacted including our ill staff person. No one meant for this to happen, and we are so sorry that Covid is impacting us gathering in person.

In kindness,

Rev. Denise
