On Thursday, May 13, the CDC announced that masks and social distancing, while still recommended, should not be required either indoors or out of doors for those who have been fully vaccinated for COVID. Following the announcement of that CDC guidance Mayor Quenton Lucas of Kansas City, MO announced the following:
SINCE IT IS IMPOSSIBLE WITHOUT VIOLATING HIPPA REGULATIONS TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN THOSE WHO ARE VACCINATED AND THOSE WHO ARE NOT, EFFECTIVE AT ON FRIDAY, MAY 14 ALL MASK AND SOCIAL DISTANCE ORDINANCES IN
ARE RESCINDED. MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING ARE RECOMMENDED, BUT ARE NO LONGER REQUIRED. Individual facilities are free to impose whatever retrictions they believe to be appropriate, but no governmental ordinances will be in effect. KANSAS CITY, MO
For Northland, this means that masks will not be required of anyone in morning worship, Sunday School class, or at any other church-sponsored function beginning at noon on Friday, May 14. People will be free to wear masks and to maintain "safe" distances between themselves and others in attendance if they so choose. They are also free to not wear a mask and to interact closely with others in attendance if they so choose.
It is expected that all those in attendance will respect the choices others make in this matter.
IN-PERSON WEDNESDAY EVENING PRAYER AND BIBLE STUDY MEETINGS HAVE RESUMED. PER MAYOR LUCAS' ANNOUNCEMENT OF MAY 13, MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING ARE NO LONGER REQUIRED.
WE WILL ALSO CONTINUE TO LIVE-STREAM THE BIBLE STUDY MEEINGS. USE THE SAME INSTRUCTIONS TO SIGN IN TO THIS STUDY AS YOU WOULD USE TO SIGN IN TO SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP. HOWEVER, YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE THE MICROPHONE ON YOUR DEVICE UNMUTED IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN THE DISCUSSION.
In-person Sunday School classes have resumed. One adult Sunday School class that normally meets in the Upper Room will continue to be live-streamed most weeks. Log-on will be the same as for logging on to the Sunday morning worship service. You will need to log-on to it after the morning worship service has concluded, and YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE THE MICROPHONE ON YOUR DEVICE UNMUTED IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN THE DISCUSSION.
