New COVID protocols announced
(May 20, 2021)
Based on the latest COVID-19 guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Jonesboro First UMC Return Committee has decided to encourage wearing masks during worship and other church activities, but they are no longer mandatory. Following CDC guidance, we strongly encourage those who are unvaccinated to wear masks.
We continue to place a high priority on protecting those who are vulnerable, including our children, who are not yet eligible to be vaccinated. Additionally, we have some within our congregation who cannot be vaccinated at this time due to health issues.
We will continue to practice social distancing, but we will no longer be taking temperatures upon entry. We have worked hard to follow CDC guidelines and other guidance from the scientific and medical communities.
Thank you for your continued concern for others as we navigate new challenges.
