Rector’s Reflection

July 27, 2022

Dear Friends ,

With the new mutations of BA4 and BA5, COVID is spreading again and is spreading fast. Thankfully, with more people vaccinated and with the weakening of the virus upon each mutation, hospitalizations and mortality rates still remain low.

Clarke County was in the ‘Green’ last week but is now in the ‘Yellow’ category (medium alert), which means we should elevate our vigilance at Clarke Parish. If the numbers move the county into ‘Orange’ (high alert), I will mandate masks at all worship services again. In the meantime I ask the following:

– Above all be vigilant!
– If you are not vaccinated, please get vaccinated.
– IMPORTANT – If you have been knowingly exposed especially if you live with someone who has tested positive for COVID, please do NOT come to church even if you yourself are testing negative. This is to keep everyone safe.

Thank you for your continued collective efforts to keep our parish and our more vulnerable parishioners safe.
