We have received new COVID-19 Guidance from the Diocese.
Beginning this weekend, masks are now mandated for everyone as you enter, move throughout the Church, as you are in line to receive Communion and upon leaving the Church.
The only time you may remove your mask is when you are seated in your pew.
Also, from a Diocese of Buffalo document:
“If a person does not feel well, has a temperature greater than or equal to
100°, or is experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19, they should
stay home and seek medical attention.
When present in church, all participants should:
— Exercise coughing/sneezing etiquette;
— Limit what they touch;
— Limit personal contact such as hugging and hand shaking
— Wash hands properly and often.”
